Acquired: Pet store
Posted Feb 01, 2014
Heidi was my favorite pet of all time. I had her from birth to death. When she was young, she would bite when I held her, but the older she got, the easier she was to handle. She wasn't too hard to take care of, easy to clean her cage and feed her. We loved giving her dust baths and letting her run around the bathroom afterward. She also had a little rodent-ball that she ran around in and she seemed to like that.
As she got older, she became less active, but even in her youth she stayed in my room and never kept me awake. Please be careful if you choose to purchase a Chinchilla as a pet, they can be fragile, but the rewards of owning one are amazing. I miss her often.
