K-man taking care of a friend

In the guinea pig house on wednesday afternoon, Kornelius was carefully watching Samson give cuddles and feed a little furry friend called 'Possum'. Samson was intent on each little blade of gras,s holding it steady and Kornelius watching as the guinea pig munched it's way through it to almost the end.

Kornelius and I had been walking out to get the fresh grass as all the other children snuggled in for cuddles. All of a sudden he asked, 'Ah-nella, can I get g'ubs for Samson's guinea pig?' Not sure I'd heard right, I asked him, 'What's that you want to get Kornelius?'

'G'ubs for Samson's guinea pig,' came the reply.

I explained, 'Kornelius guinea pigs dont' eat grubs, they like grass and carrots and apples ... things like that ... fruit and veges, not little creatures.'

Kornelius listened to all I said and replied a little dismayed, 'No, I want g'ubs for Samson's hands so da guinea pig can't bite his fingers.'

How he loves his friend Samson.
