An Open Letter To My Guinea Pigs On The Subject Of Packing

My dearest darling boys,

You know how much I love you. Despite your naughtiness and trouble making but there’s something we need to talk about.


When I said you could help with the packing, I didn’t mean flinging poops into every box in a five foot radius of your cage. I didn’t mean, chew on the boxes so three now have large areas of them missing. I didn’t mean, be uncooperative and messy and kick poops and food everywhere.

I meant being calm and quiet. Not chattering your teeth at the removal men. Not squeaking at full volume every time a bag rustles. Not kicking mess everywhere in excitement when you hear someone at the door.

Not rumbling when bubblewrap pops, or distracting the little hoomans or stealing things like newspapers when given the chance.

You, my sweethearts, need to learn to behave for five minutes and give us a chance to get you to the new hutch!

All my love and cuddles

Your Mummy
