This little piggy

The latest ‘fad’ amongst people with more money than sense is to buy one of these adorable little micropigs.  With their wrinkled little snouts, tiny trotters and oversized ears, they are irresistibly cute.  But while these micro pigs may be minuscule, their price tag is anything but.  In exchange for up to £700, owners take home a pet which weighs just 9oz at birth and is the size of a tea cup.  Two years later the pigs are fully grown – but still only weigh up to 65lb and stand at around 14in tall.  They can live for up to 18 years and make popular  pets as they are low maintenance, quiet and surprisingly clean.

I would love one but think the idea may be slightly better than the reality – whichever way you look at it, pigs were never meant to be domestic pets!
