Guinea Pig nail clip – oh, no!

Marvin and Mauve need to clip their toes.

 

So off to the pet store they go.

 

A travel carrier will help keep them safe.

 

The top opens wide.

 

And then they are lowered gently inside.

 

The bottom is lined with a soft bed of pine.

 

Now we know they will be just fine.

 

Carrots and snap peas are given for treats.

 

I remind them too, “you need to be sweet.”

 

Though they feel scared and are uptight.

 

A good nail clip will feel just right.

 

It will all be behind them by tonight.

 

But oh – no.  My poor guinea pigs!!

  1. I’m happy to report my guinea pigs are back in their cage. The nail clip is done…they had to wait a while in the pet store, where I’d bought them, as a large older cat was having her fur shaved! Time for a cup of tea!
