May 8, 2009, Newsletter Issue #16: Interesting Pet Facts for Small Pet Owners

Tip of the Week

Small pets can give their owners years of enjoyment. These little creatures can be personable, cuddly and downright amazing. It should be no surprise that there are many interesting pet facts about your little friends.

For example, did you know that the adorable Chinchilla takes all of its baths with dust instead of with water? These little guys will roll around in a box of dust each day to get the excess oils out of their soft, plushy coats. When they are finished with their dust baths, they will look as well groomed as if they had taken a nice, long shower.

Another fun fact is that most small pets are nocturnal, which means they sleep during the day and are active at night.
