I just got a chinchilla for the first time and it’s been a bumpy road. The first few days weren’t the best she was in a dog cage cues her cage hadn’t gotten here yet and she was constantly bothered by my family. Once her cage got here she started show signs of pain and at first I thought it was bloat but the sings stoped and she started feeling better. But as far as bonding it hasn’t been well. She naturally curious but also easily scared. I’ve scared her multiple times during play time. I can pick her up without her bitting but she struggles when I try to to put her in her cage and when in her cage she wants nothing to do with me. And just today I had to pick her up to take pictures of her feet cues I’m worried she might have bunblefoot which would explain the not wanting anything to do with me when she in her cage. And she started biting me when I tried to take the pictures. But I want to regain her trust I’m just not sure how or even if I can. So if anyone knows if or how please respond.
