I'm wondering... after the chin is with you for a long time.. do they bond with us? Can they recognize our voice? I don't know if its too early or what but my chin doesn't seem to recognize my voice even though i talk to him everyday (actually he doesn't seem to recognize any human or TV voice, he's only response to the bang or knocking sound). Only sign that show we were bond is i'm only one he can fall asleep on when I hold him. But thats it. I know they are not like dogs or cats that would bond with human strongly. But how is chinchilla though? I have him since spring break only so maybe it is not enough time.
