This is the text (if you need help).

An English couple could lose their home because of their pets. Clive and Rose Restall live with their 21 pet guinea pigs. The owners of the house say the number of pets is too many. They want the couple to get rid of the guinea pigs. The owners said the number of pets is not allowed in the contract. The couple signed a contract to rent the house. The owners warned Mr and Mrs Restall that they must move out of the house or get rid of the guinea pigs.

Mr Restall said his guinea pigs helped him fight cancer. He bought the guinea pigs to help him forget about it. They made him happy. He said the guinea pigs are mystic - they have special powers to help people. The guinea pigs have also helped his neighbours with personal problems. He said: "The local community love them just as much as I do. I sometimes loan them out to people if they need someone to talk to."
