So, I have a chinchilla
named Dakota whom I love very much. But, god, she looks so lonely and/or bored when I don't have the time to give her attention. It breaks my heart to see her jump on the cages bars to greet me, but I continue to walk by because I've got so much work to do at times. So I was thinking about getting another chinchilla to give her some company for when I'm not around. I've heard that they love better in pairs anyway, because they cand handle stress easily together.
I went to the pet store the other day, and looked at this chinchilla that they've had for a while. I went in to hold and play with her, and she is the sweetest chinchilla I've ever met. She's a year old and a lot more tame than mine is. Very cuddly.
I'm thinking about purchasing her, and I've did a lot of research on how to introduce chins to one another. But, the thought still scares me because Dakota and the chin I'm thinking about purchasing seem like they're complete opposites. Dakota is 8 months old, so she has lots of energy and is very 'in your face' sometimes. She'll try to jump on my cats and everything. haha. SO much energy. But, I don't know. I just don't want to risk them fighting
