Well you may know that one of my chinchilla’s Trouble had to be put to sleep so Yesterday I went down to the local shelter and they had this pathetic skinny chinchilla I named Silly. He is underfed but otherwise healthy. I took him to the vets and he said I have to give him some nutritious foods and plump him up. He did some blood work and that should be in within a week. He is so cute, very scared but they said they rescued him with a filthy cage, no food or water. He was petrified. But he is coming around and ate some food and drank a lot of bottled water. His poop is fine, no diarrhea, no parasites. I was having a hard time with Trouble so decided to perk myself up and go take a look since I have two extra cages. Im so excited. He will settle in. He looks kind of ragged but Im sure he has never had a sand bath. I will get him looking good again, poor baby. He just looks so pathetic.

Wow, what an amazing set up! Silly will surely thrive with your TLC. He sure is a cutie but looks so sad. Can't wait to see pics after you've spoiled him a little.

Thanks guys, yes, he does look sad, I think he must have been kept in horrible conditions and possibly abused.

Oh in the tubs it’s just bedding, hay, dust baths, treats, ect. Okay, here you go, more pics then of my sweeties.

The one hiding in the pot is Chili. They love that pot. He has a nice big cage now and is loved. I spent a lot of time with Silly yesterday and he is starting to get settled. I let him run around it the bathroom and he had a blast. He looked so depressed at the shelter. They have their own chinnir room where it's safe for them to run around and play.
