Intelligence of Chinchillas

Believe it or not, they love books! Here’s Whiskey, “reading” ..

Hmm... interesting!

and here’s Yuffie, appreciating a page from the book..

Yumminess!

These happens before the baby and all the baby chins. I was trying to bond with them during their playtime. So, I brought the book and release them into the empty room of our old apartment. They were, naturally more interested in the book than me!ūüėÄ

I do sometimes wonder how intelligent are the Chinchillas, particularly mine. Both are perfectly pee trained, and would use their litter box to pee without fail. However for poop, they’re all over the cage! I have to sweep their cage daily otherwise, I get disapproving, grumpy faces from them!

There's poop everywhere! I don't like!

For rodents, they’re such clean freaks. Both won’t lie down anywhere near the poops. Can’t really blame them though.

There's a poop on my wheel. I can't use it.

Yuffie’s pretty Diva when it comes to cleanliness. I guess it’s a girl thingūüėÄ

Hello? *Knock-knock*

I am so guilt stricken! This blog has been like an abandoned house. Hopefully it’s not haunted! :S A very big THANK YOU to those who drop by sometimes. I’m so touched to see the blogstat is not a flat line.

Funny thing is every time I sit down to write something, I am ALWAYS interrupted. Now, I solemnly vow… *ahem* to blog at LEAST once a week on the furries. So much has happened since the last quickie update. We have a human baby now. Last year 2010 has been hell of a ride for me. Hopefully this year will be better.

For starters, here’s Trinity Jade Lim, our new precious love :

Goshhhh it’s been so long, that I’ve forgotten how to post a picture ¬†-_-~ Owhh right .. here she is, my mini human!ūüėÄ *loves*

She loves it when mommy talks like cartoon! -_-~

 

Here are the furries:

These are the pictures taken some time back when we just moved into our new place. This is where the buns are introduced to the concept of outdoor playtime, birthdays and parenthood… for Whiskey & Yuffie. Below are some sneak preview of their first baby, Brandy Swing.

Tridus :

I can run freely? Really???

Tinga :

 

Dis ribbon pretty on me? Really??

Whiskey :

I'm a Daddy now!

Yuffie :

Can you see her? Her tiny lil tail?

These are just some teasers, especially on Yuffie’s part. That girl has been mommy to 3 baby chins! More on that later.

I will start from where I stopped last time. Meaning, I will write first on the happenings of 2010 with occasional up-to-date post of the current time. I know i’m not making any sense. But what the heck.. at least I start somewhere…

*pat-pat -own shoulder*ūüėõ

Enjoy the pixies.. more to comeūüėČ

We’re still alive!!!!

It’s been so long since this blog is updated. Things has been extremely hectic for the humans and furries alike. We’ve all been living in a roller-coaster world since Furry Slumberland. This is quite bad coz it’s as if the furries went into slumber and didn’t wake up! *touchwood* They did…¬† don’t worry. No harm came upon them while they’re in slumber. Just a quick update, among the things that happened since the last post was :-

1) The furfurries have moved to a new place. They have an outdoor playground now. Only for the buns thoūüėČ

2) Tinga celebrated her first birthday in the new place. All furries are trying their level best adapting. More treats laterūüôā

3) Yuffie gave birth TWICE … resulting in 3 baby chinchillas fathered by Whiskey. The first time she gave birth, it was a girl chin – Brandy Swing. Second time was to a pair of fraternal twins.ūüėÄ I know …. darn cute! Alpha Romeo & Echo but judging from the size, we’re pretty sure Echo come out firstūüėČ. Believe it or not it’s all unintentional and accidental. I know … BAD! But the babies are cute as buttons and sweets and everything nice! So it’s a wonderful surprise and in a way a blessing in disguise.

4) Whiskey has his own crib now as there’s no more intention of breeding Yuffie in the near future. Yes, he’s bored sometimes but hey.. good news is, he’s bonded to me now. He practically owns my shoulder/laps/earlobe during playtime and he barks for my attention when he’s bored!ūüėÄ More on that story later.

5) Furfurries have our first hand experience at bunsitting for Bugsy & Truffles when the Chestnuts went back hometown to celebrate Hari Raya in September 2009. It was fun…. well at least on my part.ūüėÄ

6) The humans, however, have had quite a rough journey. Too many things to do with too little time!!!. But that’s the human’s worry… Furries are adjusting well.

7) I forgot my account password while trying to log in to blog few weeks ago. Since you’re reading this, all’s goodūüėČ

All said and done, it’s 9 days to Christmas! The furries will experience for the very first time, being furry sit by the Chestnuts for X’mas. Its a favour tradeūüėČ Well, at least first time for Tinga, Whiskey, Yuffie and her babies. Tridus has been bunsat before by Furrybutts. I’ll try to post some pix before I go off on my holidays.ūüėÄ

In case I get too tied up to blog, Merry X’mas & Happy New Year 2010 in advance !!!

Furry Slumberland

One of the most unimportant, common things that my furries did all the time was to flop lazily on the tiles, in and/or outside of the playpen/cage, snoozing the hot sunny afternoon away, while totally oblivious to their unique cuteness in doing so.
 

Let us look at Whiskey & Yuffie first, since much attention has been showered on the buns in the previous postsūüėČ

 

Here’s Whiskey :

Go away!!!

Go away!!!

 

Spot the killer gaze!! Whiskey can be quite grumpy when he’s sleepy. Extra grumps if the weather¬†is ridiculously hot.¬†

 

ZZZzzzzZZ

ZZZzzzzZZ..

 

I have to be extremely silent when taking this picture of him. I don’t want to risk being glared at disapprovingly for waking him up¬†when the camera clicks.¬†

 

It's getting hot here too...

It's getting hot here too...

 

When the tiles gets too warm from his body heat, he will wiggle his butt away to another cooler spot to chill and sometimes if he’s not within our reach, he will continue his nap.¬†He will also push along the fiddlestick to the cooler spot and lie down underneath it.

 

U can't see me...

U can't see me...

 

However, it’s not always that he’s guaranteed to find his¬†comfortable position. when that happens, he will twist and turn underneath the fiddlestick until he is satisfied.
 
 
This is heaven.....

Hmmmmm.....

 

¬†Whiskey is rather demanding and hard to please. Always cautious and on guard. The fiddlestick acts as his security blanket whenever he¬†naps. I love that sleeping position of his..ūüôā

 
cozy under fiddlestick 'blanket'

cozy under fiddlestick 'blanket'

 

Finally found his cool and comfy¬†spot, complete with the security blanket.. off he scurries along entering¬†dreamland…

Yuffie‘s next…

 

U called??

U called??

 

Yuffie knows how to answer to her name alreadyūüėÄ or maybe i’m just sensitive. Whenever I called her name, she will turn to my direction. I’m concluding that either she recognises her name or she just¬†love the sound of my voice… *ahem*

 

Entering dreamland..

Entering dreamland..

 

Unlike¬†Whiskey, Yuffie isn’t that fussy. As long as any part of her body touches a cool surface, she’ll close her eyes and doze off..

 

bliss.....

bliss.....

 
and will remain in that position until her royal tummy grumbles..
 
 
I'm a sleepy 'snake'..

I'm a sleepy 'snake'..

 
 
Yuffie can sleep with or without the fiddlestick. She’s having a mild identity crisis there. At times, she will just plop on the tiles like that,¬†all paws safely tucked under her body.¬†She’s very ‘snakelike’ (is there such a word?) when she stretches and licks her nose at the same time.ūüėÄ
 
 
raizin....mmm .. *chew-chew*

raizin....mmm .. *chew-chew*

 
Of course, she sleeps more soundly and dreams better with fiddlestick as her blankie.
 .

And now….¬†¬† *whisper:¬†We must tiptoe gently to¬†check out the¬†Dead Bunny Flops (DBF) demonstrated exclusively for your pleasure by Tridus & Tinga.* ¬†¬†Ready??
 
 
The bunnies flop anytime and anywhere within the perimeter. In the¬†playpen if we’re not around. Unlike Whiskey & Yuffie, they don’t need the fiddlestick as their security blanket.
 
 
Tinga's signature flop

Tinga's signature flop

 
 
#1.  Head arched towards the back exposing the extra fluffy dewlap;
#2.  Ears pointed seductively in any favourable direction;
3#.  Paws and hindlegs crossed as a lady should; 
#4.  Tail is always tucked and relaxed in that position. 
 
and that’s how a ladybun should flops.ūüėÄ
 
 
Paws crossed in a very ladylike manner...

Paws crossed in a very ladylike manner...

 
 
#5. This is optional.. to add more aura to the charm, give bunny kissies generously. 
Tinga, effortlessly demonstrates with her bunny mouf showing a tiny bit of her lady teef and mild twitching of her royal pink nosh *loves*
You must be wondering why my spelling for certain words is off… well… I can’t help it… she makes me wanna talk cute!!
Its funny how ladylike she looks when she sleeps because she’s a total opposite when¬†she’s awake!¬† Still cute nevertheless…ūüėÄ

Upnext, we have our very manly Tridus flop.
 
That's the marking, not his eyes :D

Markings of a manly bun..

 
Our first experience¬†with DBF comes from Tridus. It was¬†so cute it sent furry tingles deep into our heart!!!! I can’t even describe the cuteness¬†we felt at that time with words. He’s the most relaxed furry among¬†all, as we can pet him, play with his ear and whiskers¬†while he flops and he will¬†continue¬†napping with occassional purrs.¬†The trust he placed on us….is simply PRICELESS!!!¬†
 
Manly snooze..

Manly snooze..

And…..he’sh got¬†the cutesht bunny mouf and nosh too… *kisshiesh*¬†

 *BIG GIGANTIC FURRY LOVES TO ALL*
