You may wonder what the name Camphor Chins means. As a child, I fell in love with the movie "My Neighbor Totoro". In the movie, there are two small children, Mei and Satsuki, who run into a mythical creature living in the woods near their house. This creature is called O Totoro. He also has friends named Chu Totoro and Chibi Totoro. These Totoros all live underneath the gigantic Camphor tree in the woods. Often times during the day, Totoro can be found sleeping within his Camphor tree, and during the night, he comes out and plays with the girls.
In my opinion, the Totoros all resemble chinchillas. I knew that when I got a chinchilla, I would name it after Totoro. But since I have all girls, I have gone with girly names like Chibi and Mei. Chibi for the small white Chibi totoro, and Mei for the little girl. Because of my love for Totoro and my interest in the Japanese culture, I have decided to name my small group of chins in honor of him.
I try to provide chinchillas with supplies that they just can't live without and to help their owners spoil them. But I also try and provide only safe and healthy food and treats for the chinchillas.
I am located in the Twin Cities of MN and I do provide local delivery. So if you are in the Twin Cities Area, feel free to email me to see if I'll be in your area for delivery.
Since starting to provide supplies for chinchilla owners, I've expanded into providing items for cats, dogs, and other pets like ferrets and rats. Making things for pets is what I love to do, so thanks for shopping with me!
