    Do chinchillas need fleece?

    Thank you! She does have a fleece hammock and enjoys sleeping there! I think I will keep some fleece covered ledges as she seems to like those

    Do chinchillas need fleece?

    Hi, so my chinchilla's cage currently has pine shavings on the base floor of the cage and then the shelves and ledges are either wood or fleece. I am purchasing a critter nation cage and I am planning on buying the bass equipment metal pans. But I'm not sure whether I should get the pans for the...

    Fleece liners

    Great, thanks for the advice! I’m still using pine shavings for my chinchilla, but definitely looking into the fleece option and trying to pan train her. I am also looking to purchase a critter nation for my chinchilla and since the pans are plastic, I know I will need to replace or cover them...

    Does anybody know of any well-priced vendors?

    I personally buy from Ronda’s Chinchillas and her stuff is great! She offers mostly wood products with some toys and treats.

    Fleece liners

    So I am thinking about transitioning to fleece liners as a way to save money/produce less waste. I’m just worried about if they smell/how absorbent they are. I’ve seen some people use small baking dishes with some bedding as the area for their chinchilla to pee in. I’ve also heard of people...

    Hello!

    What fruits are you feeding him and what is his edible house made out of? Chinchillas really shouldn’t have much sugar in their diet so most fruit is bad. Do you know what the edible house is made of? I know pet stores sell these “snack shack” homes for pets but those are not chinchillas safe...

    Can Apple Sticks Go Bad?

    Okay it definitely was the new growth fuzz that you described. There was no smell to it either. I threw out the stick that had it cause I wasn't sure, but thanks for helping! I was worried they had somehow started to go bag. I keep my wood in a sealed container.

    Can Apple Sticks Go Bad?

    So I bought my chinchilla a pound of apple sticks about 3-4 weeks ago. I’m almost at the end of the bag but I noticed one of the sticks had this white stuff on it and looked different than the others. I threw it out and inspected the bag but didn’t find any others like that. Do apple sticks go...

    Chinchilla making weird noises

    Yeah I think everything is okay because she’s still eating and pooping normally. I only hear her make the noise when she’s excited and jumping around her cage

    Chinchilla making weird noises

    So I've had my chinchilla for a little over a month and she's around 2 years old. She's super social and friendly and I've never really heard her bark or make much noise. Well tonight I heard her making these strange noises, almost like a soft "honking"? She's been eating and pooping regularly...

    Silver Surfer or Flying Saucer

    Okay thanks! The flying saucer had caught my eye originally but I’ve seen some people with the silver surfer so wanted to get any opinions. I think the saucer model would work better

    Silver Surfer or Flying Saucer

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on a chinchilla wheel, specifically the silver surfer or flying saucer? Both are within my price range but I'm not sure which is best suited for my chinchilla. I would prefer a wheel/saucer that is pretty quiet just because I live in a small...

    why is my chinchilla crumbling his food?

    How much is he crumbling his food? Mine will sometimes only eat a bite or two of the pellet and then toss it which results in some crumbling.

    Used Ferret Nation Cage

    So I found a great deal for a used ferret nation cage on Craigslist. It seems to be in good condition and I’m going to go check it out later this week. I guess I just wanted to make sure it was safe to move my chinchilla into a used cage. I’ll definitely be cleaning it thoroughly before moving...

    Prevue Pet Products Cage?

    Ah wow thanks for including the side by side image! I will definitely be saving up for the critter or ferret nation then since the Prevue cage doesn’t seem to be any bigger than the cage I currently have. Do you know if the critter or ferret nation is better? I know the ferret nation isn’t good...

    Prevue Pet Products Cage?

    So I am currently saving up for a new cage for my chinchilla. Currently she is in the cage that the person I adopted her from provided. It's a decent cage and has a good amount of height to it but I would love to get her a critter nation in the next few months. I stumbled upon this cage at...
