Spotlight Thursday – Meet Hitchens and Sagan

15 Sep

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

♥ FRIENDS – make sure you leave some messages.  Hitchens and Sagan will be checking in throughout the day and answering comments. ♥

Name:  Hitchens and Sagan Hamilton Pig White

Age:  3 years young and 6 months

Location:  Austin, Texas

Web/Blog Page:  I don’t have a blog anymore, I got way too busy eating grass.  But I will post to Instagram in between grass breaks! Stop on by!! @hitchensandsaganpigs

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I was pretty scared at first but I quickly warmed up after I realized all mom and dad wanted to do was cuddle and I LOVE cuddling!

I was nervous at first but I quickly warmed up to them after Mom gave me a belly rub and dad gave me treats. Now all I want to do is cuddle and chase them around.  I love them so much!

♥ Hitchens grey/black ♥ ♥Sagan black/white ♥

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  When I was allowed to cuddle on the couch like the meowing and barking creatures.  Mom even gave me my own blanket to cuddle with on the couch and she gave me my own castle!!!

When I arrived home for the first time and I saw the giant yard!  I used to live in an apartment with the first family I was with.  I couldn’t run around, but now I do and I LOVE IT!  I love to chase and be chased by my brother Dexter.  I’m trying to be friends with the cats but they aren’t fans of me just yet.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   I can only mention ONE?? The earliest one I can think of was when I was about 3 months old.  I REALLY wanted to cuddle on the couch with mom but she refused.  I even politely (mom says I was screaming) asked my grandma if I could cuddle with her, she said no too.  I got pretty upset so I decided to take a stack of papers that was on the coffee table shelf and carry it across the room.  Mom was upset and chased me away at first but then after a while she laughed and let me cuddle.

What are you talking about?  I’m a perfect angel!! I never EVER pee on the floor, or scream at the top of my piggy lungs in order to get attention.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  I have both of them wrapped around my hoof.  Dad gives me treats throughout the day and mom gives me belly rubs as I’m drifting off to sleep.  There are some times when mom and I will have a fight but at the end of the day she always returns to rub my belly.  My plan is working perfectly.  PLOL!

Psh, everyone caters to my every need…I’m the baby!

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  That pigs are messy.  Yes we roll in mud, but it’s to keep cool as we eat grass.  Yes we like to rip up paper, but that’s to line our beds and to show the paper who’s boss.  Another one is that pigs smell…well I don’t know who doesn’t smell after a burp or fart, and for the record my burps and farts smell like roses.  And as a mini/teacup pig, people think I’ll always fit into a teacup or purse….I am proud to say I have a healthy 50 pound figure.  You can try to put me your purse (please do, so i don’t have to walk) but it will probably break..your back!

Just like my brother said that we will always remain small and that we don’t get attached too our families.  I was abandoned before my new mom and dad brought me home.  I was extremely attached to my first family and when they left me I was extremely depressed because I missed them.  Now I’m so much happier with my new family with lots of brothers to play with.



Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

    These friends are gorgeous, B. And so smart and tricky! It is fun learning about them and their home lives. Their house sounds like a BLAST!

    Abandonment is horrible. My Bailey was abandoned before we found him and it took him a very long time to learn that we would never leave him.

      Yeah mom was really sad when she heard Sagans story. I told her it was ok to give me a little brother because he wad pretty cute. He does seem to have warmed up quickly, but he is so young so it was an easy transition. I’m still warming up to him.

    Fun interview! How sad to be abandoned though – that shouldn’t happen to ANY of us – ever….it takes a while to trust again. We hope your FOREVER is truly FOREVER AND EVER!!!!!!

      Thanks Sammy! I was pretty sad when my old family left me, but then I was taken care of by a nice lady that let me sleep in her bed, then Dr. Karri from Vet Ranch took me in and helped me feel much better (mentally and physically)! Mom and Dad found me from a video she had posted. I love my new home and feel safe to say that I’m here to stay! (PLOL it rhymes) ~Sagan

      Hi Amy! We are pretty adorable aren’t we? Bacon and I have a constant contest of who is the handsomest pig, So far we’re at a tie. Little brother keeps begging to be part of it. I need to talk to Bacon on letting him join one time. Thanks for checking out our interview! ~Hitchens
