What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? I thought she looked like Santa! It was December and they came to visit me and she was wearing a red coat! She said to me that she was going to be my new Mummy, I liked her although I was quite wary at first. I thought he had a nice kind face but I wasn’t sure if they would love me though, I need to explain. At that time I was staying at a horse sanctuary, I had been taken there so I’d be safe. Thing is my old parents weren’t very nice to me, I don’t know why I tried to be good. I don’t remember a lot because I was only little but I ended up running around on a road with scary cars that were going really fast and one hit me and it made me go to sleep for a bit.
I was told later that a nice man tried to put me in his boot to take me to the police station but he couldn’t lift me so he rang the police man and they said they would come but by the time they did I had woken up and was running again. It was so cold and I was so hungry so I just kept wandering and I found a nice garden so I went in there and tried to sleep. In the morning the lady that lived in the house opened her curtains and we looked at each other a bit shocked. She was nice but I was very scared of people but she rang the police man again and they came and he took a picture of me, I think they call it a mug shot? So then the horse sanctuary ladies came and with a bit of a struggle they got me into the trailer thingy but I was good I didn’t bite any of them.
It felt so good to be in the stable it was so much warmer as I had some nice straw to snuggle in and they gave me some food, I was so hungry, those ladies were very nice. They told the radio people about me trying to find my parents and my new Mummy heard about me and that’s when they came to see me. My old parents didn’t come for me but I’m glad they didn’t if I’m honest they weren’t nice people.
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? Well the big day came and I was put in a crate, I gave them a bit of a run around of course hehe but I went in there in the end. They lifted me into the big car and we drove for a little while until we got to where I was going to live. They opened the crate and I wandered out and that’s when I saw it! A really smart house! I’d never had a house to myself before well I hadn’t had much of anything really. It might not have been much to some pampered piggies but to me it was a palace. I went straight in and snuggled up in the warm straw it was bliss, I knew that never wanted to leave this place ever.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? Not sure where to start there’s been few hehe! There was the time I escaped and the chase was on again around the street, I did a big poo in the lady over the road’s garden but they managed to guide me back into my house again. Once I was back in the drive I ran straight back into my piggy palace and didn’t go out again for a while I didn’t want to do that again! There was one time that I thought the hose pipe would look good in my house and took it in there thing is I hadn’t considered that it was on and my house got wet oops!
Who do you have wrapped around your trotters more – mom or dad – and why? Both! I have them so well trained. I do a bit of squealing and they will come out and give me some fuss and a snack hehe! I think Daddy sneaks me more biccies that Mum though.
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? Some think that I’m mean, and are scared of me I don’t know why I’m more scared of them! Once they get to know me though they know I’m nice.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
