    We recently adopted a bonded pair of Chins called Rosie and Gus. Rosie is about 10 years old and Gus is about 6 months younger (and neutered). These are our first chins and i so impressed with them as pets.

    Their confidence is growing daily (well basically they do anything for a raisin) and they are starting to get brave enough to venture out of the cage.

    I will post pics later

    Unfortunately chinchillas are messy and cause loads of dust - at least thats my excuse anyway!!

    lol yes they do. They flick sand everywhere, ping poop off the shelves when they leap about, i have noticed though that they don't waste any food or hay.
