My Mini Pet Pig . . . and Pals!

Mini pig protests and pass around

Mamma is desperate. She doesn’t want me unhappy or unsatisfied because she knows what that means in mini pig language: manipulative potty “accidents” all over, sometimes in clumps and sometimes as trails, as a clear sign of my frustration.

I have it down to a science. If she leaves me in my room at times when I know I can finish off the cats’ or kids’ leftovers, I protest. If she leaves me in my room at times that I know are devoted to cuddling, I protest.

It’s messy business but it sure keeps Mamma on top of my schedule. Sometimes I just go in the corner of my room. Other times I go outside but then purposely come back in mid-potty to leave a nice yellow trail, much like the yellow brick road, all the way to the kitchen.

Mamma does anything to avoid me being unhappy because she will do anything to avoid my mini pig cunning and manipulative ways. I am so sweet, I just need to drive a point home and boy does it work.

So to prevent me from missing out on cuddle time because she has been extra busy lately, she stuck me on her bed with Pizzico. She stood me on there (pigs will happily stand for a while) and then covered me up, hoping I could keep Pizzi warm.



I tried to get comfortable, I really did. But Pizzico wouldn’t hold me. He wouldn’t get close enough to make me lie down and fall asleep.




Yup, doesn’t take long for Mamma to arrive. SQUEEEEALLLLL! One more time for emphasis.


She’s walking a fine line thinking that Pizzico “cuddle time” will count as part of my daily cuddle time. A real fine line.

On a separate note, please all send Nylablue lots of love. I’m sending her many piggy kisses and virtual cuddles. She hasn’t been doing too well the past couple days.

Excuse me now, I’m off to squeal until Mamma picks me up.

    Oh Cocco I wish I had my mom under control like you do! My mom keeps talking about piggy boot camp. She always makes me move from my favorite spots for no reason (I protest everytime), she always chases me back to my house when I leave a golden trail, she won’t let me on the couch when I want, it’s terrible! I do love it when she starts scratching me with a knitting needle though…ahhh I’m in heaven when she does that! I do think I’ll eventually have her completely under my command soon…we shall see. ~ Hitchens

    Oh Cocco how could your Mama resist those big eyes?!?! Squeeeeealllllls would be tough to ignore too! Well, it was a good idea she had leaving you on the bed and hoping you’d cuddle with the cat BUT it’s not the same is it…..Mommy cuddles are SPECIAL. I know!

    Hugs, Sammy

    Cocco, sure looks like a great snuggle place for you. You really should try to do a little better in the potty department. Hope the Mom came and held you. Have a great day.

    Snorts. You do have mommy wrapped around your little hooves my little friend. Bravo. But then again looking at your sweet little face, I can’t say that I myself wouldn’t be wrapped either. I still say we need to live closer so we can have play dates to give the humans a break. You know what they say about separation makes the heart grow fonder – ๐Ÿ™‚ Love you little guy. Try to give mommy a break from time to time. XOXO – Bacon

    Way to go Coco! I have my momma trained pretty well too! I don’t potty in the house though, I squeal/scream as loudly as I can! We do have cuddle time after dinner, and after cuddles she usually gives me a treat. And if Momma is busy I can cuddle with Dad, my brother, or my big sister Badger (Boston terrier); but Momma almost always takes time out to spend with me to make sure I am a happy pig, because anyone else just isn’t the same and I let her know it!
