Today (October 12th 2016) our eldest chinchilla, Mollie, is having her very first birthday.
Yeah, I know it's gone fast. In Mollie's case, the time between when we brought her home and her birthday has gone quicker than normal anyway, because Mollie was already half way through her first year by the time we brought her home.
Still, it's hard to believe we've already had her home with us for about five and a half months!
She's not quite as reserved with us as she was when we firtst brought her home, and has shown herself to be a sweet little girl who loves attention and nibbles. Mollie does still have some issues with depression, and maybe she always will, but we never hold her bad days against her. After all, everyone's entitled to bad days, right?
Anyway... Happy birthday Mollie!
