Hello! My Nigel I must admit used to get raisins as a treat. However after learning how they are not an ideal snack, I got some slow cooked traditional oats! I put them in a papermache fleece covered treat dispensing ball (only like 3 in there) for him to try during his supervised playtime. He loved them. I'm so glad that I can still give him a treat every once in a while and not have to worry about it harming him. Thankyou chins and hedgies for teaching me so many things about chinchillas.
