I also recently cared for a chinchilla in my home when a couple went away on vacation for a few weeks.
Currently I own one cockatiel (Ukume), one Yorkie-mix which I recently adopted (India), and one Husky (Blanca). I am also caring for my friend's cockatiel.
I clean my bird's cage every month and feed and give him water every day. I take him out of his cage five times a week and have taught him several commands.
I walk my Blanca and jog with her every day even sometimes take her on a bicycle run. Of course, I change her water every day and give her food every day. I brush her hair twice a week. She knows various commands and gets along well with dogs and people.
I have house-trained my India. She knows a few commands. I walk her four or five times a week. I brush her hair once a week. I change her water and food twice a day. She gets along well with dogs and people. I give her a bath once a week and wash her bed once a week.
