Pig, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pig
Age: Unknown
Gender: Female
Kind: Abyssinian mix
Home: Stoke On Trent, England
   Pig came to us from a home where she hadn't really been handled for the first few months of her life. She was so timid it took us months to gain her confidence, but now she's very bold! As you can see, she will happily pose for the camera. Her official name is Abbey but that's only used on formal occasions, like when she goes to the vets. Pig can't see because of dense cataracts, but she uses her nose to navigate and she has very sharp hearing. She is very verbal in her endless requests for food (especially tomato, which she is nibbling in this picture!) and will dance around with delight if she gets a surprise. We love her little pink feet and the wispy bits of hair behind her ears. She smells lovely and warm when cuddled. She's great!
