I introduced our pet chinchilla, Rigby, in a previous post. I think everyone needs an animal around, someone to talk to, someone happy to see you after a long day. Animals, to me, are God’s gift to us. Some are inspirational (like pandas), some are tasty (like cows… sorry to all the vegetarians out there, I just really love steak), and some are terrific companions (like Rigby). He’s the one who didn’t care when I spent two hours listening to “Some Nights” by Fun on repeat and singing at the top of my lungs. He watches Say Yes to the Dress with me when Sam is at work. He doesn’t judge me when I burn dinner and have to open the windows for a while. He’s a great listener.
A few months ago, Rigby got stuck behind our washing machine and Sam and I went out and bought him an exercise ball. I must say, we were mostly inspired by Rhino the Hamster from the Disney movie, Bolt.
We pulled it out tonight because Rigby has developed a bad habit of chewing on the wires behind our fridge. We haven’t figured out how to block the gap between the fridge and the counter yet, so into the ball he goes.
Please enjoy this video of him having fun in his ball, and hug your pet. :)
