In Other News

We have inherited a chinchilla yesterday. It is a male, four years old. Our friends gave him to us, cage and all. He had a name, but didn’t know it, so they said we could give him any name we wanted. K9 has named him Nicky.

Nicky is incredibly cute! I wish I had a digital camera so I could show you. (An order for a small, easy-to-use digital camera has already been placed to our excellent eBayer, Mr. Goldie).

K9 loves Nicky, and spends every minute of his free time feeding him, playing with him, or being worried about him. He even cleaned around Nicky’s cage!

What K9 really wanted was a cat or a dog. But, Mr. Goldie and I12 are allergic to cats. I’d love to get a dog, but I’m not sure if we can handle the work. So we decided we’d get a startup pet and see how that works.

Yesterday, K9 said,

“I feel sorry for Nicky. I could never be him, trapped in a cage all the time.”

I thought about our kids living in the suburbs, where you have to have a car to get anywhere, and you’re not allowed outside without adult supervision anyhow… but I kept those thoughts to myself.
