I was in the process of moving my guinea pig and her pups downstairs for playtime, and one of them started wiggling around and making it hard to carry him. You’re supposed to talk quietly to them and pet them when they do this, but I was drawing a blank on what to say, so my first thought. was to sing. red and black.
(It worked either way, he calmed down fairly quickly. I’ve been calling him Marius ever since)
