“A family friend had a litter, and as soon as I got hold of it, I knew exactly what his name was,” Waldron said. “I always wanted to be a pig. I always asked my parents for one because they are so cute. When I got it, it was really nice.”
Waldron said that Petunia had her own room and a litter box – Waldron boasted that he had trained the pig to use it in two days.
“I’m in love with him. “He’s in bed with me a couple of nights a week,” Waldron said. “People think I’m crazy, and especially crazy for having her in my bed.”

According to Waldron, the feeling of sleeping with a pig was strange and I had to get used to it. It turns out that Petunia likes to curl up on the bed and snuggle up close.
“At first I had to get used to it. He likes to steal my pillow and be so close to me that I can’t move so I have to push him away. “It’s much warmer than a human body,” Waldron said of his 36-pound pig.
“He loves to cuddle. He likes spikes and food and to graze outside. Pigs aren’t like dogs, they’re tough.”
Waldron says pig farming is nothing more than pig farming.
“He gets into everything, everything he can get into. He eats everything, – jokes the 23-year-old girl.
“He’s very noisy. If he’s quiet, I know he’s up to something. He ate a bag of pancake mix, some flour, jammed in the kitchen and ate an entire loaf of bread, a bag of crackers. He trashed the living room and knocked over the trash can.”
According to Waldron, Petunia, despite being a generally “good” pig, can feel bad.
“He gets really aggressive sometimes when I do something he doesn’t like, but he’s fine,” Waldron said. “If he’s outside and I call him, he comes running. If I hold out my hand, he’ll put his nose on my hand and I’ll tell him to dance and he’ll turn in a circle.”
