Sydney is a 9 year old chinchilla who has been coming to visit us at CEDARCREST for the past7 years! She is one of the friendliest chinchillas we know! She enjoys being cuddled and will even happily climb up to sit on your shoulder. Like all chinchillas, Syd loves bath time but she doesn't get wet! Because her fur is so thick (and soft!) she cannot have a normal bath. Her fur would never dry! Instead, she has a special dust that she rolls around in to help clean her fur. Sydney loves yogurt drops and will politely take one from your hand when it is offered. She is nocturnal and often spends her nights hopping around her cage and her days sleeping in her little plastic castle. Sydney is a very sweet chinchilla and a wonderful Pet of the Month!
