    OMG, the adorable hiney in the upper left corner! The cuteness is almost hurting my brain!

  2. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    If you really care, you won’t eat them! Go vegan.

  3. What made me turn almost pure vegan were 1) CuteOverload overloaded with the cuteness of piglets, and 2) the fact that for the last two years I’ve been giving lectures on bioethics for biotechnology students (and when preparing for these lectures, I had to confront myself with the fact that the foundations of modern medicine, biosciences, industry etc. had been built on unbelievable loads of animal suffering. So, YAY piglets! Long live all creatures big and small!

  4. Guess I don’t “really” care, then. Yup, they’re cute. Yup, they’re smart. If I gave up any meat, it’d be pork. But, bacon is just so darn delicious….

  5. You said it. Besides, we don’t eat them until they’re grown up, and they aren’t anywhere near as cute or friendly then.

  6. Yeah, you never see these cute little guys at the state fair. The piggies at the fair always kind of scare me (even the littler ones!).

    Pigs are friends, not food. ^_^

  8. The thing that has most pushed me toward being almost pure vegan, is having a bunny. That rabbit eats better than I do! And, just try living with the disapproval of non-veg food!

    Wrinkly noses!!! Squeeeeee!!!

  10. Let those other little piggies go to market, we’re staying home…

    *performs the Triple Lindy into the piglet pile*

    Ahhhh, nice and warm and cozy!

  12. Well we’d have to be talkin’ about one charming mother[bleep]in’ pig. I mean he’d have to be ten times more charmin’ than that Arnold on Green Acres, you know what I’m sayin’?

  13. Fird Birfle says:

    YAY Arnold

    *swishing pompoms for Arnold*

    “I just don’t dig on swine” was what popped immediately into my head :)

  15. flashbacks to Tocktober and Nosevember! Leetle Peegehs!

  16. Ques John Denver’s “grandmas Feather Bed”…
    Ahhh opiggies!

    For the youngsters in the crowd.

    When I was a little bitty boy
    Just up off-a floor
    We used to go down to Grandma’s house
    Every month end or so
    We had chicken pie and country ham
    And homemade butter on the bread
    But the best darn thing about Grandma’s house
    Was her great big feather bed

    It was nine feet high and six feet wide
    Soft as a downy chick
    It was made from the feathers of forty ‘leven geese
    Took a whole bolt of cloth for the tick
    It’d hold eight kids, four hound dogs
    And a piggy we stole from the shed
    We didn’t get much sleep but we had a lot of fun
    On Grandma’s feather bed

  17. Aaahhh! I had forgotten about that song. Thank you for the memories!

    Noooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will not look at these lyrics! Will NOT!!! If I get this song stuck in my head I will have no choice but to do myself in, and then who would take care of my kitties?

  20. I don’t remember that song…Skippymom would you hum a few bars for me? ;-)

  21. skippymom says:


  22. Fird Birfle says:

    skippymom is so much better at debonaire & suave disregard, than moi !!!

  23. victoreia says:

    But….but….skippymom….what’s wrong with “Grandma’s Featherbed”? I loff that song!!! Sing it with me, now….. :P

  24. skippymom says:

    OK, listen. Long ago, my father and I were John Denver fans, and we listened to him all the time on eight-track tapes. But I could never stand THAT song. It’s cheesy and annoying–in my opinion. So if you all want to wander around singing it, knock yourselves out. Just please don’t do it anywhere near me.

    p.s. Skippy hates that song too.

  25. Just be glad I did not link in Video! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    *sound of gunshot*

    Only problem with sleeping with piglets is they are always hogging the covers.

  28. SlaveToCat says:

    And Oinking you while you try to sleep.

  29. *golf clap*

  30. Happy Pig Day!. We remember nuzzling in our litters like this as babies. We love to cuddle.

  31. Hooray for pigs! Happy Pig Day! I’m glad to be a vegan, I must say!

  32. “But please don’t call us now…” Lol!

    You are crazy silly, “Crazy Pants.”

  33. Katherine says:

    So adorable! Glad I don’t eat them!
