    My brother called me yesterday asking me if I could keep his pot belly piglet whilst he goes off to work for two months and being the push over that I am I agreed. Only one problem though, I haven't a clue about pigs. So pretty please help.

    If his PBP lives inside, I'd expect its potty trained (litter box, signals to go outside). If that's the case, your job will probably be pretty easy and very enjoyable. They're smart, personable little critters. Feed it and give it attention.
    If its an outside piggy, I hope you have a secure run to keep it in. Because, again, they're smart little critters and excellent escape artists!
    Best of luck!
