    Default Alphie the piglet abandoned by his mother, then adopted by Jinx the cat

    As the sole survivor of the litter, things looked bleak for Alphie the piglet after his mother abandoned him.
    Realising that intervention would be the only chance he had of survival, owner Claire De Beer decided to bottle feed Alphie herself.

    Time for a cat nap: Alphie takes a snooze alongside one of his new brothers

    Will anyone notice? Alphie gets in on the act as Jinx nurses her kittens

    But as her own demanding schedule started to take it's toll, Claire began to wonder if her cat Jinx, who had recently become a mum herself at their home in Cape Town, South Africa, might shoulder some of the responsibility.
    And within hours of bringing them together Jinx had bonded with her new 'kitten' and Alphie found himself snuggling up with his brand new family.

    This little piggy ... was abandoned by his mother but his owner refused to give up on him

    One of the family: Jinx allows her new 'kitten' to snuggle up

    Too cute. If Alphie is a livestock pig, he looks a little deformed to me. Livestock pigs should have a squared head, but this little one seems to have a very rounded/domed head instead. Maybe that is why his mother rejected him.
