An adorable Chinchilla looks incredibly happy whenever she is brushed by her owner in series of heart-warming videos.

Omochi, which means rice cake in Japanese, is a tiny two-year-old chinchilla who lives out her carefree lifestyle in Tokyo, Japan, with her owner, Kaori Mochizuki, 25.

When Kaori returns home from work, her next duty is to make sure Omochi receives a good thorough brush on her pied coloured belly.

Whenever Kaori strokes Omochi with a brush, the tiny chinchilla looks completely at ease and incredibly happy throughout the grooming process.

Kaori said: “Omochi has loved to be stroked since she was a baby.

“Chinchilla’s have very dense hair that needs to be brushed.

“Some chinchillas don’t like brushing, but Omochi always feels good.

“I want people all over the world to know the cuteness of chinchillas.”
