It’s no secret that we are very fond of the menagerie we have here around us.
Recently our darling pet pig Cilla has seemed depressed.
She’s used to lots of company when visitors and family come to call, loves being the centre of attention.
It occurred to us that she might be feeling sad and lonely during these times of social isolation, so we are trying to spend more time with her.
Conversation with a pig is tough going at times, so Robert now reads to her each day. She absolutely loves it.
That, plus lots of cuddles and tummy rubs (by her special request), she is now a much happier girl.
