Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, You may already know from my previous posts that it can be difficult to find toys that your small mammal will want to chew on. So, I started looking for new toys for Gary and even compiled a list of my favourite Chinchilla Chew Toys and at the time I wasn't so certain about my feelings towards Lava Ledges, but let me tell you they are … [Read more...] about REVIEW: Kaytee Lava Ledge
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, Sorry about the radio silence these past few days... well, this past week! I couldn't even remember the last time I wrote because we were too busy with moving and we didn't have internet for about 5 days. So, I'm going to take this post fairly easy and ease myself back into the daily posting, but here's what's going on... As you already … [Read more...] about We’ve Moved… Again!
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, We had a mini-scare last week with Gary. He had been sneezing quite a bit, which tends to fatal symptom for a lot of Chinchillas. As soon as I noticed how much he was sneezing I immediately called our new vet, who said there was nothing they could do to him because they didn't deal with exotics. They happily gave me some numbers to call, but … [Read more...] about A Little Scare with Gary (Our Chinchilla Wouldn’t Stop Sneezing)
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, I'll be brutally honest and say I had absolutely no clue how big Chinchillas were before getting Gary. When I was first called about potentially being the new parent to Gary, I asked my partner if he would feel comfortable with us adopting another small mammal the size of a hamster into our home. The size of a HAMSTER!? How did I think … [Read more...] about How Big Do Chinchillas Get when They Are Full Grown? How Large Do They Grow in Size?
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, Sometimes it's hard to approximate how much an animal costs to adopt, especially if they aren't common animals like cats or dogs. Even with cats or dogs, it can be hard to approximate how much they cost as it depends on their breed, colour, if they come from a shelter or if they are a surrender. So, today I'm going to be answering the … [Read more...] about How Much Are Chinchillas?
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, Another busy week in our home... When will the work end? Probably never! But I made sure to take lots of pictures of our little ones this week since last week I didn't get a chance to feature all of them. Beau has been less cuddly with us this week, he's been spending more time with Kalista sleeping on the chair or couch next to her, … [Read more...] about Gary You Are the Sweetest Cuddler Ever!

Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, It's another easy and sweet post from us today just to fill you in on our adorable Chinchilla Gary. We've had Gary for a while now, and we're still learning what he likes and dislikes. You may already know from last week's post about chew toys that Gary chewed on his cage for a hot minute, so I looked up things we can do for him to deter … [Read more...] about Gary (Our Chinchilla) Eating Popcorn
Have you ever thought to yourself... what is in my pets food and what do they eat? Well, I hope you have! It's important to know what goes in your pet's food and what the best type of food you can feed them is, so I thought I'd take some time to break down what a Chinchilla should eat. Water Odd thing to put on a list for food, but we easily forget how important water is to … [Read more...] about What do Chinchillas Eat? What Should I Feed My Chinchilla?
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, You may know that it was quite difficult for us to get our hamster to use the chew toys that we bought her, but I am pleased to tell you that we have had a much easier time finding toys that Gary likes. Off the bat, I'm going to say: try to avoid salt licks. Salt chews can actually be deadly to your Chinchilla and should only be given if … [Read more...] about Our Favourite Chinchilla Chew Toys
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, I thought I might change up the way that I do these photo dumps and maybe give you a bit more information about our pet's weeks instead of just one sentence updates. Let me know how you like it! This week we had a mini mishap with Beau getting another UTI. He seems to be doing a lot better and actually finishes all his medications today, so … [Read more...] about Our Kitties Are Getting Along! (Photos of Cats & Chinchilla)
