Sydney is a nine year old angel. This is one of the calmest and most people friendly chins we have had in a while. Sydney has had a rough couple of years. Her first owner left her with someone for pet sitting, and never came back. That was two years ago. The pet sitter never intended to have a chinchilla, and tried to do the best for Sydney but was unable to provide for her appropriately. Syd came to us in a tiny plastic cage and was incredibly frightened of what was going on here...but after about a week hiding, she completely took over her Critter Nation cage, wheel toys and snacks and decided she could get used to being spoiled! Sydney is incredibly endearing and we are all having a very hard time not becoming attached- someone better adopt this chinchilla soon because we don\'t want to let her go!!
