As you know, piglets are baby pigs. Female pigs give birth to many young piglets at a time : 11 on average !
In a farm setting, this means that they will all grow up together in a specified pen and will probably depend on their mother for an extended period of time. Unfortunately, if there isn't an adequate amount of food for the full grown parent pigs, they will sometimes eat their young.

Despite the fact that adult pigs can be intimidating and not overly lovable, baby piglets are among a farm's cutest creatures, and for those who live on farms, are often treated like pets.
They are very smart, probably smarter than dogs (actually they have been found to be more trainable than dogs or cats !), but since they are destined to eventually become bacon and pork chops, it's probably best not to get too attached to them.
Despite the reputation of pigs, they are a naturally clean animal, although they love to roll in the mud, and a piglet can be easily trained to follow you around, and is as easily housetrained as a puppy. Sometimes farm children keep one as a pet : unfortunately, the baby pigs will eventually grow older !
