SPOTS SPOTTED: Potbelly Pig on a Leash

I was on my way to the vet today…

I was on my way to the vet today and I looked out the window and there was this big pig… walking around on a leash!

I asked if maybe we could get one but apparently, potbellied pigs (pot belly pigs) grow to 125 pounds to over 200 pounds and 16 to 26 inches tall. Wow – that’s big and heavy!

Also, pigs really like their food and are very, very smart. They can learn to open the fridge and cupboards in their never-ending quest for food.

Pigs are omnivores, not herbivores. They do not make their own protein. In the wild, the protein would come from dead animals, worms, bugs… A pig fed nothing but fruits and veggies will have problems.  That kind of sounds like it might get very expensive.

This piggy looks very loved and looked after. PLEASE do your homework before getting a pig for a pet. The abandoned 350lbs potbelly pig below was luckily accepted into a feral cat colony and eventually rescued from a harsh winter.

The spotty cute potbelly pig had gone by the time we left the vet’s so he’s probably home now having a second lunch.  It was my first proper vet visit and you can see the video later this week.
