    Default OMG! That was close!

    Holy crap! I was taking the chinchillas out for a bath today and I had a little incident. I got the boy out and took him upstairs to the bathroom. I put the baby gate up in the doorway because I was worried it was too hot in the bathroom. I went back downstairs to get my girl, but while I had my head stuck in the cage I heard this loud crash. I came running upstairs only to find the baby gate had been toppled over. I guess he was able to push it hard enough to get it to pop out (its the spring loaded kind). He was nowhere to be found and I was freaking out. I called my dog over (she's a doxie) and told her to "find Gus". Within minutes she had found him under the dresser in the bedroom! I didn't know how I was going to get him out of there. He was crying too, I think he was scared cause he didn't know where he was. But then he moved over to one side and was sitting by a shoe box that was next to the dresser. I went that way and my dog automatically went the other way. She went behind the dresser and pushed him out the other side where I was. I was able to scoop him up no problem. Poor little guy, he looked a little bit bewildered! LOL!

    OMG bRs! That is so cool that your dog herded him for you. I didn't know that Chinchillas could cry. I don't really know much about them other than they take a dustbath.

    I wanna see pics of them.


    BTW, glad everything turned out ok.

    Thanks girls! I'm glad I found him too!

    Zombs - Yep, they have a distress call when they are scared. They like shredded wheat squares and they love their exercise wheel.

    Let's see... pics...

    These are the only ones that are on my computer:



    That's Chinchi on the left and Gus on the right.

    LOL! Yeah, that's the girl. She can be very pushy sometimes. Like when I'm vacuuming out their cage. She'll try to push the hose out of the way so she can get out the cage door.

    Well that would have to be one big mouse and hamster! LOL! My girl weighs over 3 pounds! Actually, they are rodents from South America. They are native to the mountains and they were originally brought to the US for the fur industry.
