Something small and fast moved behind my car. “Kitty,” I said, and it poked its head out. It was a guinea pig! From two sides, the neighborhood cats converged.
I stamped my foot – and all three of them took off. I followed the guinea from yard to yard, corner to corner, across the street and back. The two cats moved in again. “Fssst.” I said to them, and again all three animals fled. The guinea ran into my garden. I moved close, talking softly. I put my hand out, and she crawled into it.
I don’t know what made me go outside that night, but I’m glad I did. Bad tempered as she can be, kicking and bucking like a tiny steer, bludgeoning my hands with her back legs and head, she is sometimes sweet and loving, coming to the door of her cage and nudging my nose with her own.

Over four million animals are put to death each year in the U.S. alone because they are abandoned and unwanted.
