Is it a cat? Is it a dog? No, it’s Gerald!!!

Spied by the side of the road by a kind-hearted motorist, the quizzically moving creature was at first thought to be a tiny tri-coloured kitten. But they were wrong. The hapless lost critter was a pint-sized piggy soon to be christened Gerald. With species no barrier to the motorist’s kindness, and fearing the worst for Gerald (after all, the side of a busy road late at night is no place for a tiny baby), he was quickly bundled up and taken to an emergency veterinary clinic where a chain of lost/abandoned animal procedures and red tape saw him ultimately surrendered to Edgar’s Mission. If only animals could talk, we are sure Gerald would have one tale to tell—if only he stopped nuzzling the ground long enough.

Clearly with no fear of humans, and so at home in our laps, Gerald’s past is as big a mystery as to why our society treats his kind the way it does. Although different in looks to the much-loved cats and dogs who share our hearts and homes, Gerald is only too keen to do so as well. He is as much at home sitting on the couch as he is sitting when requested (if only all pooches and pussies would be so obliging): a true testament to the smarts of pigs. He is affectionate, funny, inquisitive (although a little too so on more than one occasion) and oh-so-clean. Stay tuned to have to have your heart sent into cuteness overload as you learn of his many exploits in the world according to Gerald.
