had a scare tonight

Ok i had decided to take the chinchillas out to play for a bit now that the dogs are gone.
Frost and Milo have lived separate for about 2 years after milo chased frost around the big cage and frost ended up breaking his toe and I had ot put Frost in my small travel cage.
I figured I would have the both of them in the same space get them re-acquainted cus i would like them to live together again.
Milo was of course proving he's the dominant male and was making it known there was a bit of fur flying but there was no blood or anything like that I would break it up and each would go to their side of the bathroom.
Well after awhile i had scooped Frost up and was holding him. It wasn't long after that i decided to put them back in their respective cages.
Milo was fine I Put him in his cage and he was bouncing all over the place.
I put Frost in and he was all laying and not moving i put his dust bath in the cage and he hopped in but looked like he was going to sleep rather than take a bath.
I took him out of the dust bath i had to physically take him out of the dust house.
I put the dust bath in milo's cage and he went to town taking  a bath..
Frost was all lethargic looking. I picked him up and he was limp like a rag doll. Ok he was really starting to scare me I thought maybe i'll see if he wants a treat. I grabbed a raisin and those are normally like chinchilla crack. he ate it but he didn't grab it like he normally would and i tried giving him a second and he didn't even eat it.
now he was really freakin me out. he seemed to get more lethargic after that and seriously he was like a doll i could pretty much do anything i wanted with him.
so now i am listening for his heartbeat i am seeing if he's still breathing i even took him outside in the cold air to see if that might get him moving.
Nothing seemed to work. I laid him down on my comforter on my bed and laid next to him i was stroking his fur and talking to him. I noticed that when i was touching his back feet that he moved them so i kept touching his feet. then he peed on my comforter and seemed to be much better. I had to put him in his cage to clean the mess then i decided to strip the cover off and by the time i came back from the basement he was moved from the ledge that i placed him on eating.
man i was freakin out though.
I am sure he was just bummed that milo was proving his dominance or something but OMG i was so scared.

but now i figured since i had to wash the duvet cover i'd wash my down comforter and sheets which will probably take all night since  once the comforter is in the wash i will have to dry it on low til it's completely dry.
I also have a fiber fill mattress cover that i am washing which will take some time to dry as well.
