“Kumquat, Patch, and Wicket are all so cute! Wicket (the one yawning) passed away a few months ago, sadly, so we’re glad we were able to catch this adorable shot to keep and remember him by. He was always such a happy piggy, and loved getting attention from anyone. I hope you find him as cute as we do!” -Lauri S.

It’s Awesome Being Twins!

“We’re gonna have so much fun growing up together! We can braid each other’s hair, play pranks on boys, it’ll be sweet. And we’ll always look out for each other too — if the cat tries to get us, I’ve got your back, you’ve got mine… Right?”


Josh K. says: “The pet is Fats (full name: Mr. Monkey ‘Fats’ Parker, but we mostly call him Fats or Fatty). The baby is Phoebe.”

Time To Hit The Hay

Remember that old expression? Does anyone say that anymore? I have no idea why it popped into my head just now.
