I hope you don’t mind me calling you ‘Auntie Laura‘? I just feel that I can call you Auntie because you’ve given me my name! And I do so love it, I think it quite suits me really.
It’s a cuddly kind of name – which I am. Some humans might not think so, but I am, really I am.
When are you coming to visit?
Did my humans tell you that I had babies last week? Eleven of them. I am rather proud of them. They are quite a handsome bunch. They are white with grey stripes, and ginger with grey stripes. Here are some of the first photographs taken of them.
Do you think you could help me with names for them?
Eleven names is an awful lot of names! I heard the humans say that 11 is the number you need for a football team…. BUT, excuse me, pigs don’t play football.
I’ve heard say that we’d probably be quite good at rugby though. We are very good at ducking, diving, and side-stepping, so I guess that is what they mean. How many are on a rugby team? Would 11 be enough?
The babies are growing up so, so fast. They come outdoors with me every day, and have started on solids already. Some of them are already starting to get picky about what they eat! Do you have the same problem with humans?
I’ve had so many visitors since the babies were born. A nice human called Mona took these photographs when she visited last week (I believe she’s actually quite famous!). She had some small humans with her. I liked them an awful lot. They brought me extra nice things to eat – apples, oranges and bananas. I hope they come visit again.
Well, that’s all the news from me for this week. I am quite busy.
I hope you’ll come visit me soon, before the babies get all grown up.
