My friend Heather Brown and I debate the emphasis of syllables of Petsmart. Is it PETS-mart or pet-SMART? I’m confident it is the former.
I went there to get Edith her favored kibble as she is not liking the hippy grain-free version purchased to curb her intermittent vomiting. (I should mention, I have removed any deep pile carpet in my apartment to make life easier for us both.)
Anyway, PETS-mart had this male Chinchilla for $149.99 which I did not purchase.
Some bulletpoints from his placard:
- Lifespan: Average 10 years
- Activity: Mostly active at night, adaptable to daytime activity
- Compatibility: Social, do best in same sex pairs. Easily Tamed.
- Traits: Very intelligent. Overheat easily. Should be kept in a cool environment.
- Habitat: Multi-level
Sounds vaguely familiar… Though what animal wouldn’t prefer a ranch style house?
