I need these, where did you get them?You have chinchilla cookie cutters and use them
Just happened to us lol We converted an aviary, 30x20x48", previously used as a sugar glider cage in to a temp chinchilla cage. Forgot it has spring loaded swing open side doors instead of the usual heavy slide up doors. Hachiro figured this out night 2 of being separated from her kits. My husband woke up to paws on his face and had to put her back with her kits until I could find clips for all the doors.When they escape in the middle of the night you find them jumping around your bed and get woken up by it.
I need these, where did you get them?
1.) When people start talking about their children and you(not having children like me) bring up your chinchilla. In general a lot of conversations you find can be twisted to include chinchillas.
2.)When someone is chin-sitting and you have to ask,"How does their poop look?" and you make them describe in detail.
3.)You have to introduce people to the chinchillas because they are part of your family too.
4.)You have a little extra cash to spend and you immediately look at more toys or cage accessories.
5.)When someone asks, "What's that powder on your pants?"
"Oh, my babies had bath time today." and you casually brush it off.
hahahah same here. My chinchilla is my baby so I want everything that reminds me of him. The ONLY thing that I found that is chinchilla related and easy to find is if you search Totoro. Apparently it's a chinchilla cartoon. I searched this iphone holder and got it off ebay along with the headcushion. it really does look like a chinchilla just in cartoon form. http://www.ebay.com/itm/251423774506?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 <-head cushion and iphone 5 cushion http://www.ebay.com/itm/400641291324?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649Uhm, I want a chinchilla iphone holder and keychain!!
11.) When you research like forever about chinchilla related things making sure everything is safe double checking with multiple chinchilla websites1.) When you spend hundreds of dollars on your one chinchilla, way more you'll ever spend on your dog.
2.) When you constantly obsess over the temperature and making sure the air conditioner is on along with icecubs and frozen bottles
3.) When you have a chinchilla head cushion for your car and a chinchilla decal and a chinchilla shrine in your room and a chinchilla iphone holder, and a keychain.
4.) When you would do anything for you chinchilla including making 2 stops at Safeway just for infant gas drops and raisins to help with constipation/bloating.
5.) When you would rush him to the vet in the middle of the day making your mom go calling 11-25 vets
6.) When you would take him on the plane with you over 6 times because you can't ever leave him behind
7.) When you constantly worry while you're gone and obsess over him
8.) When you buy organic wood, herbs, cookies, treats, food, and hay for your chinchilla every month
9.) When you have chinchilla chew marks all over the house during the times he has escaped
10.) When you are so good with him, you can catch him in a heartbeat while no one including the vet can
SO TRUE!Your chinchillas eat better than you ever will.
The only reason i ever bought vinegar for.[*]You have specific cleaning supplies used only for chins.
having to move soon to a house with 2 small dogs. So i made sure my chins have there own little room to keep the dogs away from them[*]You've at least attempted to train your other pets to stay away from the chinchillas or risk certain death.
[*]When that failed, you moved and made sure the chins had their own room.
father died, and i have ppl asking how the chins are doing with it.[*]Your friends ask how the chins are handling "it" anytime a life change occurs.
Kinda concerns me now. Anytime i see something like that my first thought is always judgmental/critical if i see something being done that shouldn't be; instead of how cute the chin actually is'[*]You see a picture of a really young kit online eating treats and your first thought is "TOO YOUNG" rather than "TOO CUTE."
Kinda the opposite. When i mentioned i tasted a ever so small dab of my chins medicine, he just stared at me for a moment... :wacko:[*]Your vet praises you for being so knowledgeable and involved in the care of your furkids.
Im afraid to go somewhere over night and leave my chins alone[*]You're afraid to take a vacation longer than a week during the summer months.
Ive been wanting to make a full document about all the chin knowledge i can get along with all the personal knowledge about my chins personally. As well as make a video containing it all. (Which will be hard cause i don't like my picture taken much less video.)[*]Just "in case," you hand the caretaker a custom-made booklet detailing the procedures of handling any potential issue that might arise.
