Hamlet the Mini Pig

6 Jun

If this video doesn’t kill you with cuteness, you’re a cold hearted asshole. Seriously though, this video has been making the social media rounds all week. Hamlet is one popular piggie.

I love that everyone loves Hamlet. If you liked the video, commented on it or even re-posted it, think of this little cutie next time you eat bacon. I hate to ruin your favorite food for you, but your bacon started out as cute, little and timid as the one in that video.

That’s all I’m going to say about that.

Changing the topic, how cute is this video?!  I near died when he fell in the bowl at the end.

    Oh. my. gosh.
    This little pig makes it all the way down the stairs, snorting as he goes. As I watched this, my little guinea pigs both perked up their heads, like, is that one of us? No, boys, it’s a real pig! But he’s not much bigger than you!

      Oh my cuteness – so glad I gave up meat (well everything but the fishies) this year!

        Congrats on your move to going meat free! My husband is going through the same exact transition as you (pescetarian) and hopes to be fully vegan very soon.

        thanks! just checking out your vegan section…what in the name of sanity is ‘fake turkey substitute’??! is it quorn fashioned into a poultry shaped ensemble? I’m almost afraid to ask! I dropped out on the meat after some truly horrendous footage on ABC of Australian cattle being slaughtered in Indonesia – it was barbaric – plus cattle are very water intensive to rear and Oz is usually in a drought! I went off poultry soon after and piggies are as intelligent as our dog so that was a no brainer (pardon the pun!) – might be some time before I make to a vegan though.

        There’s a lot of really great mock meats nowadays. Gardein is my favorite and makes beef and chicken. I also love to stock up on frozen mock meats from May Wah in NYC’s Chinatown (they supply all the veg restaurants in the city). May Wah has a website and will ship anywhere. I used to love Quorn but it’s not vegan, they use egg whites.

        In general I don’t cook a lot using fake meats. I prefer natural foods which includes a lot of grains and legumes. My current favorite cookbook is Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moshkovitch. The recipes are amazing and low-cal/healthy.

        If you have any other questions on going vegan, feel free to ask!
