In September 2009 Buttercup (formerly Julie) was surrendered to the Nantucket MSPCA because her owners felt they had no time for her. Less than two months later her new mom, Sarah, met her and took her home:
I adopted Buttercup from the MSPCA in November 2009. Someone had surrendered her and she had been there for a month or two with no inquiries, and I just fell in love with her. The squeaking when I fed her veggies in the morning was just adorable. She was a great little piglet and I couldn't have asked for a better pet.
