Covering your pet’s cage with a blanket is common practise, but does it work for chinchillas? Would it de-stress your chinchilla, or just make it overheat?
The only thing better than one chinchilla is two chinchillas. So are three better than two? Can you even keep three or more chinchillas in one cage, or would they go stir crazy?

Chinchillas are curious beasts, so you’re right to be worried that yours might break out of its cage! So, how can you stop them? Do you need a padlock or bolt?
Before you rush out and get your new pet chinchilla, there are lots of things to think of—like, where are you going to put it? Is a bedroom suitable, or should you pick somewhere else?
