As a guinea pig, I must say that patio season in our small neighbourhood is quite the spectacle. Humans seem to flock to the outdoor seating areas of restaurants and bars as soon as the weather turns even slightly warm. They bask in the sunshine with their frosty beverages, completely oblivious to the fact that they are not the only creatures who call these patios home.
You see, we guinea pigs have been living in these outdoor spaces long before the humans ever set foot on them. We’ve made cozy little burrows under the tables and chairs and we’ve become quite adept at dodging clumsy human feet as they stumble around in their drunken stupors.
But despite our long-standing residency, the humans seem to think that they are the only ones entitled to enjoy the patios. They shoo us away, as if we are nothing more than pests to be eradicated. It’s quite insulting, really. After all, we are a crucial part of the ecosystem. Without us, who knows what kind of havoc would be wrought upon these outdoor spaces?
And let’s not forget about the food. Oh, the food! It’s a veritable smorgasbord of delicious treats that we guinea pigs can’t resist. From stray French fries to fallen crumbs of bread, we dine like kings on the scraps left behind by the humans. Of course, we have to be careful not to get caught in the act, lest we incur the wrath of the restaurant staff.
All in all, patio season is a mixed bag for us guinea pigs. On one hand, we get to enjoy the sunshine and feast on delicious scraps of food. On the other hand, we have to deal with the constant threat of eviction by the human patrons. But we’re a resilient bunch and we’ll continue to make our homes in these outdoor spaces, no matter how much the humans try to push us out. After all, we were here first.
