Dogs and cats (understandably) get loads of attention for being adorable companions, but have you ever seen a pig?

Despite their bad rep for being messy and stinky, these squealing creatures are actually quite adorable, whether they’re still a piglet or weigh 600+ pounds. But don’t just take our word for it – check out some of our favorite piggy pictures down below!

1. “Foster kitten and piglet are the best of friends.”

2. He’s smiling for the camera!

3. And now this human must stay completely still in this position until the piglet is ready to do something else. Those are the rules.

4. No matter if it’s a cat blep, a dog blep, or a pig blep, it’s a scientific fact that all bleps are insanely cute.

5. When Steve Jenkins and his partner, Derek, adopted what they thought was a mini pig, they had no idea she’d grow to 650 lbs. But in any case, Esther is a part of their family now and always will be!

6. She’s the only one who’s allowed to hog the fireplace.

15. That unicorn dress? The pink hooves? What an absolute icon.

As adorable as pigs are, like any other pet, giving them the happy life they deserve takes a lot of time and work. In other words, they’re definitely not for everyone. But that’s okay because thankfully there are plenty of precious pigs for us all to appreciate online!
