Standard grey male chinchilla -- "Luigi"

Born approx. 5/2012 -- 11 years old

 

**Luigi came into the rescue with his buddy Mario, who unfortunately was sick and had to be euthanized. He was then adopted out to a home with another chinchilla, introduced, and the two got along beautifully... until his new buddy also passed away. Now, he's back and is looking for his lifelong friend!**

 

**Luigi is currently living at a foster home in Auburn, Indiana.  He can be adopted / picked up directly from his foster home, or he can also be brought back to the farm in Wolcott for an adoption as well**

 

Here's what Luigi's foster home has to say about him"So far, he's been very curious of me!  He likes to nibble on fingers (especially finger nails) but it isn't hard enough to hurt.  He likes to come to the front of the cage and see what everyone is doing.  So far, he also likes when the cat sits near the cage too.  One of our cats likes to stand on her hind legs and look into the cage and he gets right up in front of her and just talks.  Not angry barks, just the normal chitter he does with Dan [the foster's pet chinchilla].  He also likes standing on the air vent on the floor.  He digs at it and it makes very interesting noises (that I think he likes)."

 

Sweet boy

Does alright with handling and petting

Enjoys a looser grip when being held

Takes a little effort to catch when in a cage, likes to play games with you

Hetero beige female chinchilla -- "Pangchin"

--furchewer--

Born approx. 11/2016 -- 7 years old

**Pangchin was brought in when her owners were moving out of the country and were sadly not able to take her with them.**

Please read:

Pangchin is one of those chins that likes things done on her terms.  If you do things on her terms... she will love you forever (maybe).  When you reach for her, she will chitter and chatter and talk at you.  She will protest and grumble until the cows come home... but she actually is very sweet and doesn't bite / spray or anything like that (maybe she just enjoys hearing herself talk?).  We chitter back to her... and then proceed to scoop her right up.  She can definitely be handled and petted, and she does rather well with handling and petting... once you get past that barking exterior.  She doesn't love handling per se....but what she REALLY wants and loves is scritches (again, on her terms).  Now, if you go to give her scritches, she may initially bark and chitter at you... but then when she realizes she's getting scritches... she melts (see picture).  We're pretty sure that scritches are the way to winning her over.

Standard grey male chinchilla -- "Shinobu"

Adult (actual age unknown)

**Shinobu was left in a box outside a Chicago veterinary practice... who then called us.  He is clearly an adult male standard grey chinchilla... but that's all we can tell.  The people at the vet clinic named him Shinobu while they waited for us to come collect him.**

**Shinobu is not a fan of the floating-mid-air-act-of-being-picked up.  He's fine once you're holding him, but doesn't like the dangling feeling, and doesn't like the look of hands descending on him from above.  Needs to be scooped from below or he will bark and express his displeasure with you**

Does well with being handled and petted

Relatively calm when in your arms

Actually chills pretty nicely when being held

Relatively sweet chinchilla

Standard grey female chinchilla -- "Gizzy the Good Gremlin"

--furchewer--

Born 2011-2013-- 11-13 years old

PLEASE READ -- Remember how the good gremlin still caused trouble?  Yeeeah...that's Gizzy!  Gizzy is a nervous chinchilla that is not a fan of being out of her cage.  She's not a fan of being caught / picked up.  Holy cow can she jump, and she can get out of any playpen / containment you try to put her.  Even her cage... leave the door open and turn your back for a moment too long... and she is GONE.  Gizzy is easily stressed out, and when she gets out, she is HARD to catch.  Gizzy is more of a look-but-don't-touch type chinchilla, who would not appreciate snuggles.  We have not had a lot of handling time with her, as that's just not her thing, and anyone looking to adopt a chinchilla that they really want to interact with should really look some of the other furballs we have available, as Gizzy isn't it.  We were told that Gizzy likes belly scratches, but we have not been able to really verify this.  She has proven to be very flighty and would do best in a low-stress environment, preferably an adult-only-home.  Due to her nervous behaviors, we don't think playtime would be "fun" for her.
