update from his foster mom, May 2011: Well since Chollo left, Francis has become a whole different chin. He has calmed down a lot and is turning into a real people chin.
During playtime, he spends a lot of his time sitting next to me or on my lap getting scritches. I can scritch him where ever I want to including his tummy, back and around his tail. He will even let me stroke him from head to tail without complaint. He also likes his ears rubbed.
When the other chins are out, he sits calmly in his cage munching sticks, hay or pellets instead of tearing around the cage. One of his favorite tricks is walking on top of his wheel. He also jams himself between the top of the wheel and the cage with his feet on the door. He then shoots poos out of the cage. It seems to be one of his favorite pastimes cause I always find a little pile in front of his cage every morning.
He has become much less territorial about his cage too. I used to have to be very careful to keep my hands away from the bars or I would get bit. Now he is taking treats through the bars without attacking them and I'm able to give him scritches through the bars too.
He really has become a big softy and a much happier chin.
Adoption fee is $75. An approved cage and exercise wheel is required. For more information, please see our website: www.nolachinchillarescue.org **Pet Only! Not For Breeding**Home Visit Required** **21+ To Adopt**
