Such beautiful fur! Makes me think of a stuffed plush animal...except one that eats, pees, poops, flings litter, etc Laughing . That ferret cage is amazing and FREE is almost always a very good thing!

Are you going to keep the rhyming names?  That must be difficult for them to understand and respond to.

I've never had any animal besides dogs that respond to their names anyhow. Do chins learn their names? Seems very unlikely to me, but, hey, I don't know much about chinchillas!

Same, Petekey! I know mice can learn their names, but mine never did.

I usually rename my rescues. New life, new name. The person who named them gave them away and didn't care about them. So, I think they should have new names. I like the name Zoey... so, I *might* keep that one. But I have a feeling new names will emerge as I get to know them.

Chinchillas absolutely learn their names. My mice know theirs too! In my tank of 5 girls, if I call for one in particular, they will come up to the hammock. Good girls Smile

They are supposed to be coming tomorrow at 2:30pm. I am so excited!

Amazing! I had a mouse that did tricks once - spin, fetching treats, etc. - but she still never came to her name.

They are chinchillin' in their room. They let me hold them. I'm in love. I've got a couple pictures that I'll post when I get to a computer. The rescue lady not only brought the big cage, she also brought a bag of hay and a months worth of pellets and a few hideaways. Zoey & Chloe are sleeping, they've had a big day. I can't wait for them to wake up!

That's great! Are they pretty tame already? It's sad that they've been passed around so much, but they've finally found their forever home Very Happy

Welcome home Zoey and Chloe Bouncy

How exciting? Are you gonna rename them, or are you gonna keep their names? I like Chloe. Was never a fan of Zoey, though.

Congrats! They're lucky they found you.

That's a perfect big cage for them. If you have the marble slab for cooling, it fits just right over the "doorway" between levels, so you can block them into one half during cleaning.

Same Smile Curious to hear their new names if/when you come up with them!
