This is the text (if you need help).

An English couple could lose their home or their pets. Clive and Rose Restall live with their 21 guinea pigs. The owners of the house say this is too many. They want the couple to get rid of the guinea pigs. The owners warned Mr and Mrs Restall that they must move house or say goodbye to the guinea pigs.

Mr Restall said his guinea pigs helped him forget about his cancer. They make him happy. He said the guinea pigs have special powers to help people. They help his neighbours with personal problems. He said: "I sometimes loan them out to people if they need someone to talk to."
