warm fuzzy story

The guinea pig and the iPod

They have met their goal. I just think it's a sweet story.

Take care of your pets, folks. Don't let them suffer needlessly. If you can't, you should pass them on to someone who can.

You're welcome, I read about it on chaoticsilly's lj, and just had to post a link.

When I first looked at the story I only skimmed it VERY quickly, and my first impression was that the funds were being raised to get an ipod FOR Cocoa -- which was reinforced by the name of the website being "guinea pig ipod". Also, the first sentence at the top of the page is, "She is getting her ipod!", which I took to mean, "The guinea pig is getting her ipod!". I assumed, from my skimming, that the poor little sick guinea pig was suffering from some kind of trauma, and the doctor had recommended that it might be calmed and soothed if it had an ipod to listen to, with teeny little rodent-sized headphones and perhaps classical music loaded in... But the family couldn't afford electronics for their pet, and so you were fundraising to get Cocoa her ipod.

I'm just the smallest bit bummed to discover that this is, in fact, NOT the correct version of the story. Maybe now that Cocoa's owner has her ipod, we can get one for Cocoa. She'd probably only need a shuffle...

She could probably have my shuffle, if she really wanted it. But I don't think most guinea pigs need ipods. It made me laugh, though.
