This Pig Loves Ice Cream More Than You Do (PHOTOS)

We scream, you scream and, apparently, even piglets scream for ice cream.

Missy, an adorable four-month-old pig, was completely delighted to enjoy an ice cream with 13-year-old Bethany Agnew during the Dalriada Festival in Northern Ireland this past weekend. The UK has been hit with a massive heat wave for the past few days that's expected to continue into this week, so we really do think it's alright for the pair to, you know, pig out with a little bit of frozen goodness.

Piglets may be cute, but mini pigs, their slightly more pet-friendly relatives, have caused quite the craze lately. Unfortunately, the teacup animals don't stay mini for very long and the Best Friends Animal Society warns that thousands of them could end up at shelters when they outgrow their homes.

Also, while some human food can be suitable for pets, some common items in our diet can be toxic to animals. Be sure to take a look at the ASPCA's toxic and non-toxic plant database before treating your four-legged friends.
