Kiwi, Miranda & Mousie's Info...
Rescue Group: Whimsy's Menagerie & Chinchilla Rescue
|Species:||Chinchilla||Color:||Silver Or Gray||Age:||Young|
Kiwi and Miranda came from separate homes where each had been exposed to male chinchillas. Even though Kiwi hated the other female chin she was surrendered with, she took a fast liking to Miranda, who missed her boys. The two bonded quickly and easily and spent their maternity watch together.
Miranda proved pregnant and nursed kits while Kiwi helped keep them clean and warm. Miranda's big boy kit has since been weaned and bonded with another male kit.
Miranda's tiny little female kit was the smallest live birth we've ever seen! Mousie (bottom) weighed in at only 30 grams and will most likely always be a delicate little thing. Mousie is still nursing and we are in no rush to wean her. Since we do not have another female kit of the same age to bond with little Mousie, we'd prefer to keep her with her mommy and auntie and offer them for adoption as a trio only.
Kiwi has been cleared of maternity watch by the middle of October and successfully passed maternity watch without kits. What a relief!
These three girls are wonderfully friendly and interactive! They would make a great trio of pets for someone new to chinchillas but who can also recognize the gentle touch Mousie will require.
Adoption fee: $150 for the trio
