  1. Used to have one. They’re incredibly soft and smell nice. You can’t get them wet because their fur is so dense that it will trap water and start to grow mold, so they require dust baths. For anyone who has never seen a chinchilla take a dust bath, please do yourself a huge favor and search for a video of in on YouTube— it’s the best thing ever.

    Also if they feel threatened they’ll shoot urine at you. I had to give mine medicine once for a respiratory infection and he go so mad he shot me with pee.

    If you’re planning on getting one, do a lot of research. They have a lot of special needs and a super strict diet. No wet veggies or sugary treats.

  2. its actually so think that just getting wet makes it mat and fall out. they have to bathe in dust to keep clean (they get really greasy without it) and its the cutest thing youve ever seen

  3. When I was a kid my neighbor had a chinchilla. I would visit and run back in forth in front of its cage and it would chase to and fro. Well it didn’t like this because the next thing I know I’m being sprayed by a stream of hot chinchilla piss. I never went back and yes I know I deserved that.

  4. We had to take my grandma(mid 80s) to the ER, she was losing her marbles on top of being an old woman with COPD.

    She insisted on wearing her fur coat. In the waiting room she kept going on about her beautiful fur coat, how expensive her fur it is, how she is going to get another fur coat, and just rambling about fur.

    I could see other people waiting going from trying politely not to stare to shooting icy death stares at her, if the circumstances were not an ER waiting room I’m sure she would have gotten paint thrown at her.
