I am being a good bun playing with my toys…
Felix Kitty wants to play with Scooter, but Mom says NO!
Since my fur friends were asking about the chinnies, I suppose I should be a good Bun and share my blog with them a little! They were already here at the warren when I got here. (But then I took over and started running the place, of course!)
This is Scooter the chinchilla:
He is about four years old, and the oldest of the two chinchillas here at my warren.
This is Snickers:
He is a year younger than Scooter, about three years old. But Chinchillas can live to be 15+ years old!
Some things Bunnies and Chinchillas have in common:
As long as you humans clean our quarters regularly, we stay super-clean, soft, fluffy and always smell good.
We all eat Oxbow Timothy Hay efurry day.
We all love plain shredded wheats for breakfast efurry morning.
We all eat Mazuri pellets, (except my pellets are Mazuri for BUNS of course).
Me and Snickers love Banana chips. Scooter not so much, but he eats his eventually.
Snickers and Scooter have been held efurry day since they were babies, so they are pretty tame. Mom thinks it would be alot harder to tame an adult chinnie that isn’t used to being held at all. Scooter and Snickers get along okay with each other during playtime, but they each have their own cage. Since Scooter had been used to being on his own when Snickers got here, Mom didn’t want to make him share his condo.
Oh! and one other thing me and the chinnies have in common:
We CHEW EFURRY THING we can get our paws on!
