How long is it okay to leave a chinchilla alone for?
We'll I have two chinchillas and we left at home for a week! As long as they have lots of food and water they will be fine! :D
maybe get 2 of the same sex.
Good for you for thinking about this. I have never had a chinchilla but do have a bunny. I don't see a problem leaving your pet alone for the day while your gone. Obviously make sure the chinchilla has adequate food, water and a few toys to occupy himself. If a chinchilla is anything like a bunny, they sort of enjoy being left alone.
