Introduction:A chinchilla is a really great pet to own. Here is a list of the top five reasons to buy and own one or two.
One reason to buy and own a chinchilla is because they are very cute pets. A chinchilla is quickly becoming a great choice for pet owner's everywhere. They are really cute, but they are soft and furry little creatures, too.
Chinchillas come in various colors. It would be wise to check all the colors that they are available in before purchasing one. Otherwise, you may need to buy another one because they are so cute, furry, and different.
It is strongly advised that people who choose to buy and own a chinchilla will have the time to play with them and keep them happy.
Another reason to buy and own a chinchilla is that they are so much fun to own. Chinchillas love playing and being played with. They are like little balls of fun, and they love attention.
Chinchillas love to run on their wheels. This is a great way for them to get some exercise in. They can run for a long time. Chinchillas are very amusing, too. They will run up to walls and literally bounce off from them. At a quick speed, they will use their feet to kick themselves off from the wall which will set them off running again in a different direction.
Those reasons already stated should be enough to get anyone interested in buying and owning a chinchilla, but here in another reason to buy one.
Chinchillas are very cheap to keep. Their food is very cheap to buy, and they really do not eat that much.
Chinchillas are really easy to care for, too. It is funny watching them have a bath. Chinchillas have dry baths. You buy a powdery, scented bath for them, and just pour it out into a bowl or you can also purchase a bath house for your chinchilla. A bowl works fine, though. They will eagerly run and jump into the bowl and spin around like crazy to get clean.
Chinchillas love people. They are great for children, too. People keep chinchillas in cages, but many people let their chinchillas out to play as often as they can.
Chinchillas love to run all over the house. They will run to you, jump on and off from you, and even just sit on you if you want them to.
Chinchillas will literally throw out their hair as a defense mechanism. It would be wise not to scare them.
If you are thinking of owning a chinchilla, it would be advised to let them have their little playtime and human contact. You should enjoy this as much as they do. Just be sure to choose a safe spot to let them loose in, because they are quite small.
The last reason here to buy and own a chinchilla is that they are so cute when they eat. They do not only eat chinchilla food or rabbit food, but they love to eat dried fruits and many other foods.
They really should not eat too many raisins, but chinchillas love raisins. They love dried apples, too.
You or your child can hand feed your new chinchilla. It is really neat watching them eat with their tiny hands. Chinchillas are so amusing and so loving. They are really great pets to own. It is important to learn as much about chinchillas as you can before buying one, so that you can know how to care for one and what to feed it.
