revelinginraw #fbf Eric getting belly rubs from me at #farmsanctuary, fall 2013.
He is one of the reasons I don't eat pigs (you may say pork, bacon, ham, but that pork, bacon, ham once had a face, a mother, and a sweet, gentle heart just like Eric.
Some of you may remember Eric (then the tiniest piggy) because when he was rescued, a picture of him spooning with a stuffed toy piglet went viral. Vegans and carnists alike cooed over how adorable the baby pig was. I saw some people commenting that they "want one." Didn't they see the difference between the toy and the living animal? Thus is the disconnect in our society, and in fact both of them existed at first as things solely for human entertainment. Eric was rescued from a farmer's petting zoo where he was nothing but a commodity, a thing for people to touch, prod, play with. His injuries were never tended to (because he was just a thing) and he developed a bad joint infection because of a leg injury.
Now, he lives at Farm Sanctuary. He is seen as a living being, his desires are respected. I knew here that I was in Eric's space, and he has a say in whether or not I could enter it. There are pigs there who don't want to be touched, too, and it isn't forced upon them. It's their house, they make the rules!

If pictures of baby animals make you all giddy but you also eat meat (and feel no connection with the beings that those babies become), I suggest you visit an animal sanctuary to feel the bliss and love that I and many others experience at them.
