The Three Little Pigs of Chiang Mai, Thailand

Oink if you love happy, fairy tale endings.

Mindy P., from Save Elephant Foundation, wrote to tell us, “Just before Christmas, a mother pig went into labor and sadly passed away with a number of stillborn piglets. The foundation I work with rescued the only survivors… three little pigs.”

“The road ahead for these little ones is a tough one, but we’re doing all that we can.

Is Eight Enough?

Kyle B. of Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary sent these our way. It seems they rescued three runaway pigs.

Or…so they thought.

They brought in Wonder Woman and her two off-spring, Captain Courageous and Super Girl.

Surprise- Wonder Woman AKA Mumma Pig..was pregnant.

Piglets-23
She gave birth to eight happy and healthy Bebeh Hoofsters!

I guess Bebeh McSnortersons would also work.

Piglets-22
Is there anything Cuter than a batch o’ snoozin’ Snorters? Nah.

“Peeg ‘tocks, from Dropstone Farms, Orting, Washington. He’s certainly having a good time wallowing in his mud soup! ” -Susan H.
“Taciturn pachyderm at Woodland Zoo, Seattle, WA. Despite much coaxing and cajoling from onlookers, (s)he was having nothing to do with any of us.”  -Addicted follower, Margaret M.
“This lovely okapi lives at the London Zoo. A shy creature that originates from the Congo , was discovered in 1901.” -Helen  O. “PS Your site is my happiest addiction! Thank you for the overload of cute you share!!!”

Do Cats Drive You Crazy?

Don’t worry. They drive Manuka; the rather annoyed, possibly offended, oinking piggalette slightly in need of rescuing, a lot more crazy!
