Long shot, but I'm posting wherever I might find some help before I forge into looking on my own. I do NOT have a chinchilla, first off!!!
But the wildlife rehab I worked with in Michigan just had one dropped off. Poor baby was tossed out, a woman found them near a pond in the reeds, soaking wet. Rehabber doesn't know anything about them & emailed asking for help & a caresheet. So I'm off to research like the wind! If anyone has any info or websites that are good, I'd appreciate whatever help!! I'm hoping to send her some basics in the next few hours so they can care for the little one for now, at least.
Edit: Oh duh, I completely forgot about Chins & Hedgies forum! Starting there for now.
