Getting To Know You – A First Date Story

Well, if you follow us on twitter you will have seen the very exciting tweet whee gave earlier today. Nutty has a new little furfriend. The lucky fella is eight wheek old Nacho so please give him a big blogosphere welcome!


Whee were very nervous during their first meet up as they had to work out who was boss and Nacho is no push over. This little guy has a BIG personality. Now whee couldn’t keep this first date all to ourselves so Mummy filmed it for us to share with you and whee made a little video for you to enjoy!


Making himself at home!

Nutty is already a lot happier and eating and drinking for himself! As his weight is still down, Mummy is going to keep feeding him till he gets his strength up but the improvement is incredible. If anyone is in any doubt over whether or not their single piggy needs a friend they need to see this. Nutty is a new piggy! Nacho will never replace Nibbles but he has a big personality and is worming his way into efurryones hearts.

Hope you are all having a great wheekend, whee certainly are.

Nutty, Nacho, Buddy & Basil

  1. we like Nacho!!!!!
    we have new friends too!

  2. Me and Nellie are pleased to hear that you have a new friend. Friends are very important. Love Nellie and Jasper, who are the best of friends.

  3. I am so happy for your family! Welcome Nacho!

  4. It’s never the same. It’s always different. It’s better than being alone and I don’t play favo(u)rites with Kaci and Kenzie. I went through this in October and Kaci has really helped.

  5. Congratulations, everybody! Nacho is a beauty. Best of luck. Yay, Nutty.

    Love and licks,

  6. Nutty is doing a good job in the video of showing Nacho he is in charge!! We are so glad to hear that Nutty has a friend and is eating again. Welcome Nacho!!

  7. Welcome, Nacho! It is nice to meet you!

  8. Welcome Nacho! what a lovely video…us humans are silly..i have now got leaky eyes!! looks like a beautiful friendship and a great start for all …yay 🙂
    Big hugs Fozziemum x

  9. Nacho is so adorable! Looks like a beautiful friendship for sure!

  10. Oh my goodness. How adorable. I look forward to hearing from sir nacho. What a cutie!! Glad to hear nutty is getting better.

  11. Frederick, Sophie, Harville, and Benwick want to know when little Nacho’s birthday is, because they are all about the same age. They send their greetings to your baby pig friend and to the big pigs too.

    Wentworth says: “Hello!”

    Annie wants to know where you keep the veggies (ignore Annie).

    • My birthday is the 17th May and I am so excited to meet you. I’m sure whee will be great furfriends! I am settling in really fast.


      • Ah, my set’s the 8th, so slightly older. I still can’t get over how you look like a missing brother to my set, but silver. Sophie says that’s just silly, she doesn’t need more brothers, but that you seem like a nice pig just the same.

      • My hoomans say I am the oddest shade of agouti they’ve ever seen. Basil is grey agouti and Nutty is cinnamon but I’m a silver brown shade which looks almost sandy but very pretty!


      • I think it’s because you also have the dilution gene for blonde. I’d be interested to see your siblings, sir. HILARIOUSLY, Annie’s babies’ coloring turned out to be the textbook diagram of dominant/recessive with exactly 25% agouti, just like you’d expect. What I’m wondering is if you have two copies of the agouti dilution gene (silver agoutis like Basil do) or one copy (like golden agoutis Nutty, Annie, and Harville). You also look like you have a crested rosette in your family but didn’t get it (Benwick is the only boy in our herd without a hairdo, but he has so much white he looks like he’s wearing a powdered wig).

      • My Father is a silver agouti and white and my mother is a sandy self coloured piggy. My siblings are all sandy selfs except for one sister like me but with pink eyes, more white and a crest which makes her look like she is permanently frowning!

        It’s very interesting how whee have turned out as I know some piggies look nothing like their parents!


      • My sister had one litter where she got four golden agouti abbys (daddy was silver agouti American Short-hair) with various degrees of colorful (as mama was a black/cinnamon/white abby)…except for one sister who was an American Satin black self.

        Eleanor, her son Wentworth, and grandson Harville all have a face shape that makes them look like they are permanently smiling (well Eleanor used to look like that anyway…when she was alive).

        Your sibs sound cute little dude. Sorry it’s so hot.

      • I don’t mind it as much as the others. I’m still popcorning around and dismantling my cage while they are taking siestas!


      • Well SOMEBODY has to do it! You, like my boys, are in the “Look what I can do!” stage. I’m only sorry I don’t have my niece’s foam blocks to build cities and castles for pigs to destroy like Pigzilla.

  12. Nice to meet you, Nacho! I’m sure you & Nutty will be best furriends!
    Purrs, Sundae

  13. Oh Nacho is so adorable and it really does look like Nutty likes him just fine! They’ll be good buddies in no time and we’re happy to hear Nutty’s eating again and MUCH happier. Nacho is a grand addition to the Hutch Boys!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  14. Welcome Nacho – what a gorgeous boy you are 😀 We are so pleased that Nutty has a new friend. Looking forward to getting to know you better!

  15. Hello Nacho – I like your tasty name and you are a cute piggy!

  16. Nice to meet you Nacho!

  17. That’s great! It is not good being alone and I am sure he was still sad, so this brings life back to that cage!

  18. Whee are cheering on your friendship!!! Wheeee!!!!
    -the collies and chuck 🙂

  19. Hi Nacho! Welcome to the club! Can’t wait to find out more about you!

  20. Awwww HI NACHO!! He seems to be exploring hehe.

  21. Glad to know Nuts is doing better. Nacho is a cute guy!

  22. Welcome, Nacho! Looking forward to reading about your adventures. Much love, The Scottie Mom.

  23. Glad Nutty has a new buddy! I’m sure they’ll have lots of fun.

  24. Oh welcome Nacho! Love his name 🙂 I hope that Nacho and Nutty become great friends! Looks like they will though.

  25. WELCOME NACHO!!! We were just thrilled to hear of your arrival! We hope you and Nutty become the bestest of furends…like Sammy & I are

  26. Hello Nacho,

    Lovely to meet you and welcome to the group – I am sure you are going to have lots of fun!! And I am sure you and nutty will soon become great friends!

  27. Sorry, we’ve been AWOL again so have only just caught up on your exciting news. Nacho (love the name) looks a very handsome piggy and I so identify with Nutty needing a friend.

  28. Nacho, you are absolutely adorable and you are going to provide such wonderful friendship for Nutty. Mom says you two did a much better job of accepting each other than we would if she brought in a new kitty for us. She wouldn’t bring in a new kitty, would she??? That new kitty would take our toys and our food. Wait, we were supposed to be talking about you and how happy we are that you found each other. 🙂

  29. Hurrah for Nutty & Nacho!!! I think the worst is over for Nutty & he will flourish with Nacho by his side!!! I love a story with a ‘happy ending’…or in this case a new beginning 😉
    Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue

  30. Welcome Nacho! It’s lovely to meet you.

  31. Hi Nacho! I loved the video, so cute 🙂

Squeak to us!!!
