Yeah, one of my piggies was like that. When she was a baby she
wheeked really loudly all the time: so much that we called her Siren!
Anyway, we couldn't keep all the babies and when she was old enough
Siren went to live with a friend of ours. We didn't see her for ages,
and then one day our friend said he was going on holiday and would we
like to look after Siren while he was away? We said yes of course,
and Siren duly came to stay. We were amazed to find that Siren hardly
made a sound, even when our guinea pigs broke into their breakfast
time chorus, Siren remained silent. However, Siren had changed from
being a cute little bundle of fluff into a beautiful shapely guinea
pig with a wonderful glossy coat. Sirens are also beautiful mermaids
that lured sailors off course at sea, so our little Siren changed
from being one type of siren to another.
