ok so yesterday my chinchilla was out running thur my bedroom (its chin proofed very nicly) and i needed to leave, well i reached under my dresser(its about a foot off the ground and she likes to sit under it) and she reered back and peed on me. i figured i just scared her and got her in her cage. well tonight i had her out and was reading a book on the floor, she got up and started nibbling on it, i told her no and gently nudged her head away, she tired again a few more times then the last time i nudged her away she reered back and peed on me again this time gettting my book, shirt and neck (which made me mad x.x ) so i cleaned my book of, by then shed ran back into her cage and i closed her in for the night. what should i do about her peeing on me like this. i know thay do it as a difence but i know i wasnt doing anything to warent it the second time and i dont want this to become a habbit. anything have any suggestions?

:giggle: That would be called spraying...

The joys of females. Some stop, some don't, some are sprayers, some aren't. I would just leave her be for now, see what triggers it and avoid it.

whiskers387, yours may just be young and adapting to things. If I remember correctly, your chin is a baby yet. Mine did that when he was about that age and still adjusting to the new surroundings. He had a couple accidents on the floor but since he's gotten a little older, he hasn't done it since. Also, if you keep her out for really long periods of time, she may just have to go. It might be better to do shorter periods of time out of the cage until she's more adjusted. (this might be a better idea anyway to help with bonding and not stressing her since sometimes they do that when they're stressed too)
