So I saw a picture of a little boy holding a guinea pig and thought, “I wonder how animals like that really feel about us? ”
Guinea pig 1: What’s up with the human always picking us up and smooshing their lips on us?
Guinea pig 2: I don’t know, it’s weird, but sometimes they give us celery and scratch that spot I can’t reach, so I guess it’s OK.
I bet most people don’t even consider how weird it is.
Then I thought, “Can you imagine if an animal tried to do that with a human?” And then I remembered Harambe. He was probably just like an unsupervised toddler with a kitten. He didn’t mean to hurt that little boy, he was just never taught appropriate handling of a human, and he died for it.
I’m sorry for making you think about this…and for being a freak…..but not sorry enough to change.
