Mum tries to get her daughter’s attention by texting pictures… of alpacas

That's one way to do it.

That’s one way to do it.

A mum tried to reach her her daughter by sending her narrated alpaca pictures… and the exchange is quite brilliant.

Sarah Scott, from Glasgow, forgot to tell her mum that she broke her phone, and after her mum, Anne, didn’t hear from her in four days, she tried a very… unique way of trying to contact her.

Sending Sarah multiple pictures of the animal with captions like “Larry says hi,” “Steve says Whats app” and “Alan wasn’t saying anything” it made for a very funny WhatsApp conversation.

“I imagine she sent them because she thought I just forgot to reply, and she figured pictures of alpacas might make me reply,” said Sarah.

However, the funny thing is, Anne actually owns an alpaca. Jacob wasn’t wanted by his owners anymore, so Anne took him on board, and he sometimes stays in the house with them.

In June, Sarah tweeted about Jacob staying in the house because it was raining outside, and the tweet went viral, gaining more than 100,000 likes on Twitter.

We have to say, we like the way this family operates – and it’s certainly one way of getting attention from your daughter.
