Chilli is a busy little 26 month old, female chinchilla who is a lot of fun to watch. She is gentle but still somewhat cautious with people. Her cage mate sadly passed away and that has affected her confidence. It has taken her a bit of time to trust her fosterer – at first she would spend playtime ping-ponging between taking a few steps out of her cage, then shooting back in! But she will now take treats from her fosterer’s hand and occasionally sit briefly on their lap. Like most chinchillas, she doesn’t like being handled, but it seems likely that she will enjoy petting with time and a patient owner. Please only apply to adopt if you have a female or neutered male you plan to bond her with.
