5:43 pm - Well now.
It's been a long time since I've updated and a lot of things have changed. Amber got some new pets. The dog was cool and fun to play with, but the cat was EVIL. Therefore I decided to move in with my long distance boyfriend chilichinchilla. I live in Memphis now, Home of the Blues, Birthplace of Rock 'n Roll. Anyway, my new mom Carla (on here as tart_kitten) is nice, but I still miss Amber. For starters, my cage is arranged all wrong. I don't like it. My new mom is busy, she works full time and is a graduate student. I help keep her up to study by running on my wheel as loudly as possible. I figure I should do my part. She DOES give me yogurt covered raisins, so that's good. I'd better get a dust bath tonight.

current mood: okay

I apologize for not being able to update more frequently. Amber is away at work and school most of the time so I don't get to play on the computer as much as I used to.

The new place is interesting. There is a lot more room in here for me to run but less chances for me to bounce off things. Oh well.

I'm still addicted to yogurt covered raisins. And dust baths, of course.

Speaking of dust baths, I have to take one.

current mood: calm

We finally have internet restored so I can update about the new place. There is another dog here, although this one doesn't seem as interested in eating me, just looking. The room for me to hop around is much bigger. But Amber has gotten much busier: she left me alone for nearly four days while she went to visit her mom and then she left me alone all weekend too. I think she knows how unhappy I am with her since I won't even take treats from her hand right now. I just snub her and run to the corner of my cage. One day she'll learn.

But the new place is nice, so that's good. I have to go; it's bath time.

current mood: bitchy

My dearest chilichinchilla just sent me the sweetest Christmas card - two penguins on the front. And as we all know, penguins mate for life. Thank you Chili! :Blushes:

My new "wheel" came today. Only, it's not really a wheel. It's a big round cymbal looking thing.

It's going to take me awhile to get the hang of this.

current mood: ditzy

If I had a calendar, I could tell you exactly how many days I have been without an exercise wheel, but even without a calendar, I know that IT HAS BEEN TOO LONG AND I NEED A WHEEL NOW!

Now that I got that out of the way, I got to explore a new room tonight. I got to destroy the bathroom! It was great! There isn't as much to get into in there and it isn't as big, but I knocked everything over that I could reach. I also found the toilet paper dispenser! That was fun! I grabbed ahold of the toilet paper and pulled and pulled and unravelled a lot of it. Then I chewed holes in as many sheets of paper as I could.

And then I got a dust bath.

If only I could get that wheel, life would be perfect.

current mood: thankful

My exercise wheel has been rigged. It does not spin any more, and I can't figure out why. I know Amber did something to it, but I can't figure out what. I tried to look under the wheel and there's nothing there. There's nothing on the top of it either. :Sigh: She promised she has a new wheel on the way, but that it will take a few days for it to get here. I need to exercise!

current mood: frustrated

Amber is trying to deceive me. She gave me a regular yogurt drop treat instead of my usual yogurt covered raisin treat. The nerve!!!

I dropped it in my litter pan. TAKE THAT!

current mood: satisfied

I think there is another rodent in the room. I cannot see the cage and I do not know what kind of rodent. But I was out to play earlier and I heard the gnawing teeth of another animal eating - and it sounded like it does when I eat. I got scared that I couldn't find the source, so I forfeited playtime early and went back into my cage.

I am so confused.

current mood: uncomfortable

Since chilichinchilla wanted to know what else to do for his cage, I thought I would post pictures of my cage so everyone can see where I live.

Amber is home. Did she bring me any souvenirs from her trip? No. Am I bitter? Not at all.

Looks like I won't be updating for awhile.

The puppy chewed up that obnoxious yellow run-about ball and Amber was so mad. I was elated - I would have to be let out to run free. But then, tonight, Amber came home with a new ball - a purple one. Dammit.

Everything I have in this cage is purple. I don't even get to give my consent - she just buys me purple everything. What if I wanted a teal litter pan... or a pink ball... or a YELLOW bath house?! It's a conspiracy.

:Cons the puppy into chewing up the new ball:

Amber put a bunch of my pictures to the Chins & Quills website for chinchilla and hedgehog discussions . I can be admired by other chin lovers! Yay for me being cute!

Amber tried to trick me. She put me in this big plastic ball and made me run around the house that way. I know what she was trying to do, but next time I get to run free around her room, I am chewing on everything I can get my teeth on!!

I did, however, get new stuff! I got this big cardboard tube that I can fit in! It's perfect - another chew toy that I can sleep in! Plus, I got new fruits and treats and nuts and yogurt drops and hay! So, I suppose I can forgive her for the big yellow ball. But just this once.

Here are some pictures from tonight.

And me and mom -

Amber tries so hard to be smart, but she just can't beat me. I think it really bothers her that I find ways around all of her barricades, but she just isn't very creative. She set up her little tv entertainment center so that I couldn't squeeze between it and my cage to get behind the tv. And it was working good for awhile, but then I realized that I can just squeeze underneath it. She didn't realize that I could squeeze into spaces that small, but I can! So I did. And she got mad.

Before I outsmarted her:

The space I slid under:

Me pulling the black sheet off of the entertainment center, just because I wanted to show her how smart I am:

Her "new" barricade...I'm already working around this one. When will she learn?!

current mood: pleased
