Hamlet The Mini Pig Goes Down The Stairs To Eat Oatmeal (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A mini pig is going down the stairs. REPEAT: A mini pig named "Hamlet" is going down the stairs.

The little guy couldn't be more excited for the bowl of oatmeal that awaits him at the bottom of the stairs. But first, he has to figure out how to get down.

Hamlet oinks uncontrollably as he eyes the delicious feast, but after an attempt at hopping down the steps, the bashful fella scurries back to the top.

"Is the effort worth the treat?" Hamlet probably wonders as he peers over the edge.

But as soon as he's offered a whiff of the snack, there's no doubt about it: He needs to get down those stairs!

Hamlet zig-zags his way down the carpeted steps and practically nose-dives into the bowl of oatmeal.

Totally worth it.

Perhaps not surprisingly, this isn't the first time the adorable Hamlet has risen to viral fame.

Earlier this year, footage of the mini pig "asking" for his bottle resonated with viewers across the Internets.

If you're considering getting one of these cuties, make sure to do your research: Some organizations recommend against keeping pigs as pets. According to Best Friends Animal Society, "The current craze for mythical teacup pigs as pets will result in thousands of these animals ending up at overburdened sanctuaries, shelters and rescue groups when they outgrow their purported small size."

Furthermore, if you are interested in getting a pet, consider adoption by checking out your local shelter, or Petfinder.com.
