Chinchilla hiding out in little hole under cabinet… how do I convince him to come out?

Posted: March 1st, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , , , , , | 4 Comments »

Basically there is a hole under the cabinetry in the kitchen beside the dish washer. I looked around and there is no way for me to get where he is. I’m pretty sure he is up there because we searched everywhere else and it happens that in that corner that is poop and dust, like he got flustered from his dustbath. I’m just afraid he is going to die up there and my mom will not be very happy about that.
