||Four years old|
||Denver, Colorado, USA|
is a survivor! She was rescued from a family who had too many
pets, and has been living a life of luxury ever since. Although she's
mostly white with a little brown and black, her name came about because
of the cowlick of black hair that usually hangs in front of her eyes.
She eats green beans, parsley, and snap peas, all grown in the garden
just for her. And woe betide anyone who doesn't give her a morning treat
as soon as the lights come on; she squeaks her demands until they are
met! She also survived a stroke last Halloween, with no ill effects
except that she now tilts to starboard and startles a bit easier when
you approach her cage. So, we're a little more careful about how we
handle her. Her food preferences also changed after the stroke - before,
she liked green peppers, now she prefers carrots. She's a good piglet,
who has it made.
