    Chinchilla Moving Day

    So this Christmas my mom bought a new cage for my chinchillas. I've been stalling on setting it up for them, as I wanted to buy some extra cage accessories before moving them in. However, after busting my ankle I haven't had a lot of time to have the critters out in the house to play, so I decided to move them into the new cage today and worry about the other parts later as they've seemed rather bored. This cage is a really vast improvement to the previous cages I've had them in, as it's designed with a solid bottom and all-wood shelves to be easy on chinchilla feet. Now I don't have to worry about finding the girls asleep on top of their food dish any more. Additionally, it has sitting shelves on the sides of the cage, instead of being totally divided into separate tiers, so Thing One and Thing Two can run and jump freely.
    The funky old wire-bottom cage is there on the left. Hip, happening new solid-bottom cage is on the right.

    Notice the spacious all-wood interior. Excellent for sitting and chewing. Yum.

    The happy homeowners.

    Hope you enjoy. Soon to come - 'flying saucer' exercise wheel, a hay hopper and cage guards to keep the litter and poops on the chinchilla side of the cage.

    Sarah, the big one, is almost eleven, and Mariel, with the torn up ear, is seven or eight. Chinchillas live to around 20 in captivity, if I remember right.
