Tatty and Pet are the piglets of Mama and Papa Meagles.
Like their parents, they are miniature pigs. They arrived at Far From with Mama and Papa after being born at a rescue centre.
Pet is just like her mother – very laid back and loves cuddles in bed. Activity isn’t her favourite thing; in fact she tends to need a treat ball to get her moving. Due to overbreeding that makes miniature pigs so small, many are born with problems. Sadly, this is the case for Pet. Her front legs are deformed and her movement is laboured. She’s not in discomfort but it does slow her down – she’s on pain relief daily, and will be until she no longer enjoys life.
Tatty is one of the most active animals on the farm. She loves mud and, on rainy days, she’ll be playing in it nearly all day. She is a happy, friendly little pig who loves exercise – an unusual quality for a pig. She is one-of-a-kind.
Mama, Papa, Pet and Tatty all thrive on human contact. If it’s not dinner time and they hear you coming, they’ll call for you to come and join them in bed. All of them love cuddles and tummy rubs,
Fun fact: all our pigs are named after characters in Charles Dickens’ classic novel Little Dorrit.
