Our daughter is going to be 12 next week and she so bad just wants a pet of her own for her room. She wanted something different from the norm, (hmm woder where she gets that from) Thought about a sugar glider but after visiting friends she figured having it bark and want to eat and play at 3am was not her thing. I am proud of her for that and to admit it would be to hard for her and not fair to me or the animal. So she now wants a chinchilla. My dear husband, admin was against it but has finally given in :Laugh: so I ordered one from our local pet store he gets them from a breeder and only babies, I trust him 100%. we are getting a boy. She is going to be so surprised! Anyway any advice or any info about then you guys could share would be great.
