That grunting day and night would drive me nuts.
Lola, it’s not just the grunting, which is relatively quiet, but the squealing, at the top of their lungs, that shreds my sense of peace! Squealing is not ear-friendly! Almost all critters are cute when babies, but pigs are NOT cute as adults! They are also extremely strong and can and do, dig under or push over fences. They don’t make very good outdoor pets, especially when they “root up” your flower beds and plants, and worse yet, the neighbor’s gardens.
Lots of people have them, love and live with them in their homes, but I saw a story that the people had to widen door, and move walls to keep them in their home, since that cute little pig, got too broad to fit through doors and hallways. They grow to humongous proportions and weight.
I had 2 pigs as a kid. Hamlet and Pork Chop. That’s what they ended up as too! Lends a whole new meaning to “playing with your food”.
I thought the grunting was cute only, like Lola, I bet it would quickly get old.
I don’t understand how anyone could make a pet out of something they knew was going to end up on their plate.
Cute for awhile but I agree, that “oinking” would get on my nerves & I don’t like it they grow up to be BIG!! Cute at an arms length.
sHAME ON U PPL..THAT COULD BE A PIGMY PIG..I’D RATHER HAVE THE PIG THAN A SNAKE..DIDNT U LIKE ARNOLD ON GREEN ACRES??
Hi mary bare! It WAS a full grown pygmy pig that grew up huge, that the owners had to move the walls and widen the doors to accommondate its huge body. “Pygmy” pigs are smaller than regular pigs, but they, too, grow to humongous proportions and weight! All pigs start out small, but they grow and grow and grow, etc.!
