a pig - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing

The pig wakes with a sense of soft joy, for she feels the sunshine upon her skin. With a snuffle and wiggle she is on her feet, trotting about to greet the day. She is so puppy-like in her movements and there is an intelligence about her. I feel a smile grow as I watch her ears, they move with each step as Disney characters do, full of an expression that appeals to my heart.
Inside that piglet is a brain and nervous system so similar to our own. One can sense the emotions within, that way of thoughts without words. Yet if they had hands or a vocal box capable of more, what then? Even a human would never learn to speak if they lacked the opportunity to learn in the right developmental window.

Danny loves computer games and he’s a bit of a slouch. He can use mirrors to help him find food. He’s capable of using deception to throw off a competitor for food. He has relationships with his family members. He can do a whole circus worth of tricks. Large parts of Danny’s genome is identical to yours, he also tastes a lot like you would if we spit roasted you, not that we would. That would be barbaric!
