We’ve had our piggies about 6 weeks now, and they can be quite shy. I read the bonding and piggy whispering tips, which were great, and sat in the room with them chatting when I could. When I ran out of things to say, I started to read my book out loud to them. They seem to love it! They both do zoomies and popcorn round. I got my kids to read to them last night whilst they were having floor time (bonus: getting my kids to read to me is nigh on impossible!), and they were super interested and climbed on their knees, which is a big step forward. Slight negative, they also ate the kids’ school books, but hey...

So, if you have skittish piggies, try reading them a story! An an unexpected plus point is they can now squeak a 300 word book review on White Teeth by Zadie Smith.
