To Steal This Piglet ?

(96 Posts)

I've been on a few bike rides with DD and we pass a small farm with a sow and nine little piglets. We've started to take chopped apples for them etc.
Anyway there is this tiny piggy who is obviously the runt. He's the tiniest and gets bullied by the other piglets; and the sow is rather rough/callous with him.
We have a real connection; I just feel it in my water. He looks me straight in the eye and we have empathy.
Can I nick him, stick him in my back pack and keep him ?

I'd post money to the farm after the escape.

Congratulations on your new arrival. I hope you don't get too many sleepless nights or have to get up to do too many night feeds.

I don't know, I just pop off to work and come back and there you are, set up with your very own laundry folding piglet.

Welcome, Squirt, welcome to MumsNet

Are you going to be doing PLW (Piglet Led Weaning)? And we will need photos of the new addition to the AWA family. You could read Charlotte's Web to it at bedtimes!

Is the piggy one a boy pig? Do we have the possible commencement of a piggy dynasty?

Just got out of my 6pm meeting. Ummmph.Knackered.
He is a little boy pig.
Am slightly overwhelmed with responsibility now. I know nothing about pigs.
DH has just rolled up. I'm waiting for the right moment. He was pretty cross about all the hamsters.

It'd take more than a little squirt to come between us.
But it will have to handled carefully. So I've made him a cup of tea and have volunteered to cook.
He's on edge.
