What the hell is that?
That was my first response when I viewed the newest member of our family.
It looked like a cross between a gerbil, rabbit and a squirrel. It began hyperventilating, making the weirdest little gasping sounds and trembling when I moved closer. This little fellow is incredibly skittish and on edge.
"That's Medeas, My Chinchilla", My sister, Laura said.
"Aren't Chinchilla's expensive?"
"hmm..what does she do?"
"She eats...and jumps", She said "She doesn't smell, she rolls around and..(pause) she's cute"
She IS cute and soft. She has a sweet temperament. The rest of the pets in the household don't quite know what to make of her though. Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "It can take up to 100 chinchillas to make one coat and Jennifer Lopez has one made of 80 of them, all killed by electrocution or having their necks snapped.
That's disturbing.For Eric: I hope you feel better today. I'm feeling a little stressed out, tired and on edge. I miss you so much..
