i get really annoyed when i tell people that i have pet guinea pigs and then their immediate response is “lol why?”
why do you keep that raggedy cat that doesn’t even like you? why do you own that yappy lil’ dog that your entire apartment complex has written complaints about? why do you have that snake? bird? gecko? fish? hamster? turtle? horse? why do any humans have any pets ever???
like just because my pet is not a cat or dog doesn’t make it any less of a pet? so ‘why’ you gotta be condescending about it? get outta here with that.
Anyone had this happen to them? Anytime I hold or touch or pet my guinea pigs, I get a rash where their claws have been. It starts really itchy. It doesn’t last long and I don’t have breathing issues though I do sneeze afterwards. I’ve tried changing their bedding, but that doesn’t seem to do anything.
So I just finished rewatching The Hobbit Battle of the Five Armies and I decided to sit with my guinea pig. So the part where Bilbo is trying to explain what Thorin was to him to Balin comes on, and I just shout at my tv admit you’re gay. Oopsie kinda just gave me this look of like what the hell is wrong with you. So then I’m thinking to myself that I’m such bagginshield trash.
