Good Luck.
couple in England could lose their home because they want to live with their pets. Clive and Rose Restall live in their rented home in southwest England with their 21 pet guinea pigs. owners of house, Plymouth Community Homes (PCH), say couple have too many pets in house. PCH want Mr and Mrs Restall to get rid of guinea pigs. spokesperson from PCH said number of animals in couple’s house is unacceptable. spokesperson added that number of pets is not allowed in contract the couple signed to rent house. PCH warned Mr and Mrs Restall that they must move out of house if they do not get rid of guinea pigs.

Mr Restall, 57, said he needs his guinea pigs because they have helped him fight cancer. Doctors told him he had cancer in 2010. Soon after, he bought several guinea pigs to help take his mind off his cancer. He said his new pets made him happy again because they made him forget about his cancer. He told reporters that his guinea pigs are mystic – they have special powers to help people. He said animals have even helped his neighbours with personal problems. Mr Restall spoke about his pets, saying: "They've helped me through my cancer. They've helped me cope." He added: " local community love them just as much as I do. I sometimes loan them out to people if they need someone to talk to."
