Petacular Monday Our Baby Chinchilla!

This is mom.

Hey neighbors!

We recently acquired a couple of chinchillas.  A regular dark gray female and a white male.  We decided to add one more and picked her up Saturday morning.  She is a beautiful pale gray color.  She was getting along great with the male, but not the other female.  We decided to separate them and have the male and newest female together and the older female by herself.

This was right after we put the kit in with her.
Imagine our surprise this morning when a baby chinchilla was running across the floor.  Now came the dilemma, which female did she come from.  We immediately decided it would be the older chin since she did not want anyone around her.  Well, we were wrong.  The minute we showed her the baby she tried to attack it.

Here she is cleaning her kit.
Next we died the younger female.  She started sniffing the baby and the kit started making little chirping type noises.  We reunited mom and baby and made sure the little one could not get out.  Baby immediately crawled under mom to nurse.

The young one is so adorable.  Baby chinchillas are born with their eyes open and hop around.  This one is following mom around their cage.  We took a couple of pictures to share with you.

What do you think?  Isn't the little one cute?

See you soon.  Our first Holiday Gift Guide post is going up this afternoon!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
