I guess im not alone in thinking pets are the ones who are always there for us! I used to have a chinchilla also and i could see everything u guys described! i hav a huge weakness for pets, i cannot even go to a shelter anymore, and a pet store is just torture tome, i want to take them all home! needless to say.... all my pets are extremely spoiled! we have two guinea pigs, one who thinks he is just the best thing ever- but in a cute way (who is also gay....) and one who is extremely shy and loving! they r an odd couple if i ever say one, but so adorable.... we also have a toothless hamster and a degu who was abused :( we also have 3 cats, twins and a tabby that weighs 30 pounds!!! she is on a diet but, well its not working too well.... but the twins are hysterical, they are so in tune with each other its scary! but, one is my mom's baby (jack) and one is mine(ciera), and both are VERY protective!
Anyway.... they are always there for u and happy to see u and love u no matter what! they understand a lot more and a lot better than most people- even my friends and family do... i dont know what i'd do without them!
it was great to hear all ur stories and they made me smile too!
