Silver mosaic male chinchilla 

--Royal Persian Angora carrier--

Born 6/23/23 -- 9 months old

**This boy had a very short stint with a family, and we were told that his personality changed (negatively) around their cat.  His personality does not change around our cat.  I'm not denying what the family said, by any means.  Rather -- we do not know if this chinchilla and their specific cat simply did not get along, or if he particularly likes our cat since they grew up together... or what.  I am simply putting this out there because if you have a cat and you are interested in a white male chinchilla... you may use this paragraph as a sign that you might pause before considering this specific one.**

SUPER easy to scoop up into your arms

Does great with being handled and petted

Sits nicely with you in your arms and just chills with you

Super super sweet boy

Super chill

We just love him!

Standard grey male chinchilla -- "Tito" (yes, like the vodka)

Born 9/2021 -- 2.5 years old

**Tito takes a bit to settle into a new place.  He initially starts out barky and unsure, but with time will settle in and will slowly become less and less barky.  Despite the (lessening) barky-ness, he has actually been happy to take treats from us the entire time he's been here!**

Curious boy

Very sweet and will come up to the front of the cage repeatedly to check you out (or escape?  we'll give him the benefit of the doubt)

Very inquisitive personality, loves to check out new things

Can be a bit barky when you go to reach for him

Not too bad to scoop up into your arms

Does pretty well with being handled and petted

When initially picked up, he's a squirm-bug for the first few moments and then settles down and will chill with you for short periods of time while you love on him

Super sweet boy!... just needs to be given his space to settle in

Will hop out of the cage and into your arms / hands!
