Charli Misty Powell
Our new pet chinchilla. She is like a mix between a rabbit, squirrel, and a tiny kangaroo.
Tullaia wants something small and furry to take care of since her baby brother is not too fond of being cared for anymore. She thought a chinchilla would be nice after a zookeeper friend took us behind the scenes at the zoo.
I told her we would never have one because they are quite a bit more expensive than other small rodents.
But a family on the home school forum was looking for a home for their 4 year old chinchilla. The daughter is going to college. So we got to surprise the kids with a pretty exciting Christmas gift.
