The chinchilla got loose today, but with quick handed kids and teamwork we were able to catch the critter and place it safely back in its cage.
The first thing I thought when I saw the empty cage was - Shoot, I just spent $16.00 on food for that thing.
Ah, but alas my money will not go to waste. The creature will be fed, fat and happy.
Okay, I admit this isn't exactly "something new" to happen to us.
We did have 2 chinchillas - now we have 1.
This summer all we found was a puff of fur and a feather in the middle of the yard
- that evidence does not bode well for a search and rescue mission -
|Happy & safely recovered|
(And umm...maybe someday soon I will buy a new camera because the lens on this one does not open all the way)
