    Chinchilla has no desire to leave cage?

    Oh, sheesh :err: Wow, now I definitely feel like the worst chin mom in the world. ... Yeah, I guess I'm not gonna put him in that thing again...

    Chinchilla has no desire to leave cage?

    So, I've posted before about my nervous boy, Nimbus, and things have gotten better, he's warmed up to me a little more, but he has no desire whatsoever to explore outside his cage. Free-roaming time terrifies him and he just hides under the nearest thing he can get under. I bought him a harness...

    Hello from Nimbus, and looking for some advice?

    Thanks for the advice! I only felt his bones when I looked for them, not just petting him, so he should be okay. I'll monitor his weight, though. I've had him for just over a month. His fur patches do look darker than the rest of him. If he is chewing it, is there a way to know why or how to...

    Hello from Nimbus, and looking for some advice?

    Hello, everyone! I'm not sure how active this forum is, but I'm here to give it a shot! I have one rescue chinny right now, his name is Nimbus, and he's my first chin! He is 3 years old, and seeming to be healthy. He's about 650g and eating healthily, good teeth, (I have him on Oxbow...
