About Us
Wilbur, the Pet of the Day
Name: Wilbur
Age: Three months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Pot-bellied Pig
Home: Athboy, County Meath, Ireland
   Wilbur came to us at one day old, his mammy wasn't able to cope and rolled on all his brothers and sisters, so we made the big decision to take him. We bottle fed him on goat's milk every two hours for the first two weeks. He's two weeks old in the top photo - that's him on the left. He was very demanding, and became part of our family. We introduced him slowly to our two dogs, one being a bulldog Elvis, and the other a lurcher named Peppa. Wilbur is better behaved than they are and was toilet trained to newspaper at three day old! He is six weeks old in the second photo.

    He is now three months old, he sleeps in a sleeping bag in the kitchen and will do anything for a plum - his favorite food. He sits when told, and spins around the floor and rolls over, he loves his belly being rubbed. He has an old pram which he rides in on days out and is a local attraction in Athboy County Meath Ireland. He appeared in the Saint Patrick's Day parade in a costume! He loves a cuddle at night and manages to jump on the sofa now.

   We can't remember life without him...
