So, I decided to take it upon myself to do something about the warm chinchillas at work.
A few weeks back I brought in some tiles from home to place in the freezer at work. I talked to my store manager about this and he said it would be ok, and that I'd be in charge of it. Ok by me.
Let me tell you, over on the small animal side of our store, it's like a freaking oven. It is so hot over there, that every night the rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, etc. get frozen water bottles in their cages. Yet, nobody ever did anything for the chinchillas. I kept complaining about it and finally decided enough was enough.
I brought in the tiles and such. Yet, every morning when I opened, not one chinchilla had one in their cage. I was furious. What was the point of me bringing these in, telling people about them, and they were never used??
Well, I closed rooms today. I made it a point to put them in there. Oh my, let me tell you they absolutely loved it. They were putting their tiny little hands on there, resting their faces on it, etc.
Maybe now people will learn to put them in there when it's hot out. If not, crap will hit the fan.
