One of our chin parents recently asked to be put on our waiting list for two more chinchillas.
It sounds great, and Im flattered they're happy with one of our chins but the problem is:
She has only had two other chinchillas and one died of a brain tumor (I think) and the other one she still has. Two is the most she's ever had at once.
She bought our female from our first litter not long enough ago to get the feel of having two chinchillas. She's only a teenager, doesn't have a job, has a boyfriend, goes to school, is planning on going to college, and has ALOT of other animals in her household. Her mom would pay for anything so really not having a job isn't the problem.. It just bothers me for some reason.
I know she will take care of my baby, otherwise I wouldn't have sold her to her. I just don't know if she knows how much work it actually is to have that many chinchillas. And usually when you have that many, some tend to want to breed. She doesn't have the time right now.. Or money.
I have a hard time saying no. Im affraid she wont understand and will get mad at me. It will be rough because I go to school with her. This is one of the rough spots in being so young and breeding. I know I have to deal with this like I would ANY other situation... And I will. I guess Im just looking for support and other oppinions.
