The chinchilla

They told me when I took him home
The cuddly little fella

That he was tamed and all house trained

My new friend the chinchilla

The first few days were full of praise

He made us oh so happy

But oh! My God was I amazed

He became all grumpy, snappy

He would not let me touch him

To cuddle or caress him

He would bite my hand 

And chew my slippers

He became oh so aggressive

We purchased many toys for him

He became all that more expensive

We decided to offload him

For a pet that was more passive
