So, I met a sweet little chinchilla and fell and love. I am considering adopting a chinchilla from a rescue. I haven't made the final decision yet. I have had lullabelle for 5 years now (shes a 11lb californian). She's been strickly solo. She gets along with cats and dogs alike, but for the most part it's just been me and her She's free roam. Her cage is just her litter box and intact to hold her water bottle. So I am considering bringing a chinchilla home and was wondering if anyone has any experience with rabbits and chinchillas together. I have scanned over some of the chinchilla books that i've come across and they seem to be okay with rabbits. However, when I googled about it I've found mixed reviews on the matter. Somewhere i read that rabbits carry a bacteria or virus or something of the sort that can harm chinchillas (though i'm sure I can have lullabelle checked for this before bringing a chinchilla into the family), and that some rabbits may be aggressive and harm them (lullabelle just wants to play with everything). Do any of you have experience with mixing the two and what are your honest opinions on the matter?
