Jack the 4-day-old piglet was found as a stray and taken to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA, he has been a light for everyone that has met him on the farmyard.


Piglets are the cutest little farm animals around, they make cute noises, wiggle their little bottoms and curly tails, and run around like dogs. They are sweet natured and highly intelligent creatures and to be honest, they just make us flipping happy!

So when we saw the adorable video posted on the Cape of Good Hope SPCA Facebook page, we couldn’t help but squeal with excitement. They recently took in a tiny orphaned piglet, just four days old, that had been found as a stray. They named him Jack and started his care programme.

We got in contact with the SPCA and checked in on how Jack is doing.

“He was found as a stray – we are feeding him every 2hrs – he is just 4 days old. He is being babysat by our amazing Horse Care and Farmyard Unit Manager Lindsay Willis.”

He is currently being fed a mixture of cow’s milk, egg yolk, honey and probiotics every 2 hours to make him strong and healthy. As any little piggy would, Jack loves eating.

The Cape of Good Hope SPCA has a specialised farm where they keep all the animals that need healing and care. Our awesome contact at the SPCA let us know they are also looking after an orphaned foal at the moment.

You can watch Jack devouring his meal below. He is just the cutest!
