guinea pig toes!

I recently signed up to our local Takoma Park listserve, primarily to keep abreast of town meetings, local crime, stuff like that.

There was little I could have done to prepare for the onslaught of insane-o emails about everything from missing mouthguards to deer eating people’s vegetable gardens. The best part is that some of these emails actually get responses. Sometimes, I think I’d rather not be aware of my neighbors’ more peculiar banks of knowledge. Or, in this case, their youtube-watching habits.

does anyone in the hood know how to clip our new guinea pig’s toenails, or know a place nearby where we could get it done? We understand there is very much a right way and wrong way, so we need someone with more experience…

I happen to know there is an informative video on youtube re: proper guinea pig toenail clipping procedures. Don’t have the site, but I’m sure you could find it by searching.

(No, we don’t have a guinea pig.)

  1. Um so there’s Petsmart and then there’s the local vet. I have no patience for stupid people with pets.

  2. Sorry for the piqued post. The world is making me moody.

  3. I would have found it very difficult to resist providing a mischievous response to that e-mail. Very difficult.
