Yes! Another Chinchilla Post Today!

IMG_7669isThese breed of Cute is woefully UNDER-represented. So we’re doin’ another Chinny Post. (Hey, they came in at the same time. Fate. Kismet. Whatever.) “I’m attaching two photos of Taro the Violet Chinchilla,” Scott writes. “Chinchillas don’t like getting wet, as their natural habitat is at arid high elevations where rain is rarely seen. Here at his new home in California, Taro has a unique way of getting prepared when he feels it’s going to rain!”

disapproving“This is my Chinchilla Mister Tibbs with his best disapproving face. He was disappointed with my offering of a stick. He wanted a treat instead. With this face, he could give a few of those disapproving bunnies a run for their money. It went like this:

Me: ‘Here’s a tasty stick, Mister Tibbs.’
Mister Tibbs: ‘No.'”

Chinchilla DISAPPROVAL!

Mama ChinchillaThink that might be a C.O. first. The Look Of Disapproval is usually (but not always) property of Buns.
Could be the first Disapproving Chinster, though.
