Did you ever see a cuter animal than this? It’s a pet chinchilla.
When I was a boy there was a fad for raising chinchillas at home, with the idea of getting rich by selling their pelts. I knew people who did this, but none of them got rich; and I’m glad that fad has petered out. People cheated themselves out of knowing and loving, and being loved by, some mighty appealing little critters.
