A Pig Given a Chance at Life: Meet Fella

Posted by 2 years ago | Permalink | Comments (5)

The Amazing Fella could have ended up as a bacon butty or sausage roll – but instead, he’s living the high life in Cambridgeshire, where he shares his home with his guardians, Emily and Dustin, and their three dogs. Fella the Pig! Just like his doggie flatmates, cheeky Fella loves to cuddle on the sofa and go out for walks. And he’s quite the activist, too. When he’s out and about, he wears a bright harness with the message “Don’t eat pork!” to encourage others to spare a thought for his cousins who never get to breathe fresh air or feel the sunlight on their back because they’re forced to spend their lives in filthy cages on factory farms. Fella as a piglet Lucky Fella Nap time for Fella the pig Napping Fella the Pig Going vegan is the easy answer to help pigs who haven’t been as lucky as Fella. If we can choose to live full, happy lives without having to inflict pain on or kill others, why wouldn’t we?

    i am so pleased this little chap is safe and is also being put to work as an advocate for his kind by going out walking wearing a don’t eat pork tee shirt. This is all good and makes people think.

    On the downside tho I do have concerns for his welfare. At the moment all is fine in the flat where he lives as he fits in nicely. There will be a time when he doesn’t and is too big and I mean too big to be able to live in a flat, sleep on the sofa etc. it will be a culture shock for him when he finds himself turned out. His new home may be really lovely with all home comforts but he will no longer be with his people all the time and he will need company and familiar surroundings. I hope this has all been thought through for him.

      Hi Susan!

      Thanks for your comment! Fella the Pig lives in our 3 bedroom house with a garden and he has two walks everyday with his three brothers (3 terrier dogs). They all sleep in their own bedroom on a single bed but also have beds to sleep on under the bed and in the wardrobe so have plenty of sleeping area choice! I work from home so they are never alone.

      If Fella grows very big- we are not sure how big he will get yet- then he will NEVER be turfed out into the garden, our home is his home forever.

      You can follow Fellas life here: http://www.facebook.com/theamazingfella and see what he gets up to every day 🙂 x

    I love this story. If I won the lottery I would have lots of animals all living the good life and being loved too.
