“You know that feeling when you do something that you think is a great idea, but then it turns out completely different than you expected? Well, that's what happened to me with guinea pigs.

Guinea pigs

It all started when my daughter begged for a pet for the umpteenth time. She wanted a dog, but I had enough on my mind without a hyperactive four-legged friend. So, in a weak moment, I thought it would be a great idea to gift her two cute little piggies. What could go wrong, right?

And here I was, with noisy guinea pigs and a reeking house that hadn't been cleaned in a month. Next time I will think twice before buying a pet…”
