Since I could remember, I have always wanted to have a pig for my pet. I grew up with dogs and cats, rabbits and hamsters around me at various times in my childhood, but forever wished for a pig. I still want one and hope that one day, I can get my cute pig named Otis and add him to my family. It’s not your typical dog or cat, but come on, they are adorable and under-rated!
Turns out, I am not the only one who seeks animals outside the ‘normal’ and some people keep pets that I would never even think you could — let alone actually call them ‘family’. Who am I to judge though, you love who you love, right?
