The most important thing to know before you adopt a chinchilla is that you’re not getting a cat or a dog. You’re not getting a little cuddly furry buddy to will want to sit in your lap and perch on your shoulder. In fact, a lot of chins HATE to be held. Make sure you’re getting one for the right reasons.
Chins are very sensitive and have a good memory, so you have to put a lot of time and effort into bonding! It can take weeks or months to build a relationship with a new chinchilla.
They do take a lot of work, but chinchillas make great pets! You would be surprised to see how much personality is in such a tiny little fluffball.
If you decide to get a chin, please be sure to find a reputable breeder or rescue in your area!
