It’s Friday morning, so it’s okay to bring you some weird news.
While most people cuddle up to dogs and cats, a 27-year-old Chinese woman, Zhu Chou, has become an internet sensation for sharing her life with her pet pig, Five flowers.
This Chinese woman has raised this pet since it was a piglet and the porker has now grown to a whopping 187lbs (13st).
But that has not weakened the bond between the two, with Zhu proudly posting pictures of them snuggled up in bed together, as reported by People’s Daily Online.
Her husband is understood to be ‘tolerant’ of the relationship.
Zhu has nicknamed her pet Zhu Diandian or ‘crazy pig’ in English.
The owner’s surname, Zhu, sounds exactly like ‘pig’ in Mandarin and that may be the reason for her love of this rather unusual pet.
