Well we couldn't get a dog so.........

WE GOT A CHINCHILLA! Yes, a chinchilla named Chipper. I didn't even know what a chinchilla was. Apparently their fur is worth alot. My co-worker Andrew was giving away his chinchilla Chipper. His 13 year old son wasn't interested in him anymore. Chipper is 3 years old. He is the softest thing you will ever feel. He has a mouse face, with a rabbit body, and a squirrel tail. I think he was alittle SHOCKED by us last night after we got him home. Karen, Bailey, and Brady came over to see Chipper. Between the three of them and Katie and I we were all calling his name and trying to pet him. He was going crazy in the cage. Today he was much calmer. But, big mistake~I let him out of the cage!! I was telling Katie not to chase him. She chased him all over the house, calling him her bunny rabbit. I finally threw a blanket over him to trap him and put him back in the cage. Hopefully Chipper learns to trust us soon. I think we make him nervous.
