"Hi! I have a 19-year old chinchilla and because of his age I'm constantly prepared for him to die in the near future. My male chinchilla used to have a female companion, unfortunately she died this spring 20 years old. My male have this past week been acting strange, in the nights he is constantly digging so that all the bedding is put in a big pile while half of the cage (of where he've moved his bedding from) is empty. Some say that it is because they are too hot but he never lay in the empty spot, instead he's laying in the pile? He is also moving his foodbowl and throwing food out of it, although he also seem to eat much more at the same time. I need to fill the bowl more often than I used to. He has been acting this way the past 1-2 weeks now, according to my family his female companion used to behave the same way her last week before she got sick and just sat in a corner not moving nor eating, should I assume that my chinchilla will die soon because of the new behavior? :( Sure he is 19 years old so he's reaaally old, but he's had his ups and downs and has always gotten better..."
