My guinea pig Mucki lost fingers.

I don't know how it happened.

One morning, when I went

to feed her, they were gone.

The wounds could not heal by


It is given that the bone

was exposed.

There was not enough tissue

to suture the wound,

said the vet.

So they had to amputate

the whole leg.

I asked that they only

amputated to the knee,

but the vet said it was not

a good idea,

because he would not be able

to walk on the stump.

Many veterinarians avoid doing

this kind of operation,

because guinea pigs don't

heal easily.

But the wound is healed...

And Mucki lives well even

with only three legs.

Near Potsdamer Platz,

a man killed and dismembered his wife

in front of her six children.

Police found the body of a woman of

about 30 years, on the 5th floor...

of a building inhabited mostly by

Turkish and Arab families.

The neighbors called the police at 13:15

when they heard a loud quarrel.

Angry, Hakan 32, attacked his wife, Zeynep,

on the roof terrace, where they were arguing

before decapitating her and

throwing her head in the garden.

Then he cut her right breast,

while shouting "Allahu Akbar",

God is great.

According to a police spokesman,

the man was immediately arrested

although he resisted.

The police did not release information

about his religion.

The man of Turkish origin was

declared mentally ill...

and he was interned in a

psychiatric clinic

"I thought I was Jesus and she

was the devil," he said in court.

Now his children, two girls

and four boys,

receive psychological care

in an orphanage.

The children, aged between 1 and 13 years,

were physically unharmed.

According to neighbors, the man

met often with his mistress...

who lived in the same house

with her two children.

His wife threatened him with divorce

which then it turned into quarrel

and murder.

The man had been under investigation

for tax evasion,

and various traffic violations.

However it has a history of violent

crimes, police said.

Now we change the subject...

The castration of a male guinea pig

is the eradication of the testicles.

The surgery under anesthesia is

practiced by a veterinarian.

This is very stressful for

the animals,

therefore it must be done

very carefully.

After surgery, the wound can be

sutured or left open.

Open wounds heal much faster,

but there is a greater risk of infection.

The operation takes only 20 minutes,

but then it must be supervised

by a veterinarian...

Not all apply anesthesia, as

some guinea pigs die from it,

and they may even die after surgery.

It can also form an abscess...

and it should be treated with antibiotics.

But they can weaken the animal.

After castration, the animal

often loses it's appetite...

and it undergoes some changes

in behavior.

I am Jesus and you are the devil.

Many animals don't like to be touched.

When I stroke my guinea pig, he looks up...

because he wants to be left alone.

It's a warning.

Guinea pigs don't like the caresses.

Often we misunderstand this behavior.

Before, when I took her to bed with me,

he wrapped himself around my neck.

I thought he liked to be hugged.

But it remained still only...

to be disturbed as little as possible.

Actually only he wanted to

get back in his cage.

My guinea pig is easy to take care of,

now he realized that he can not escape.

He is resigned to his inevitable fate...

He knows that I don't care whether

he is in pain or not.

Wait, you fool.

Let me catch my breath.

- You look like a savage.

- You don't need air, you have me!

Let's explore.
