Miley Cyrus celebrated her 20th birthday earlier in the week and among the gifts she received was a new pet pig. While most other 20 year old are gifted computers or, if they’re really lucky, maybe even cars, Miley seemed extremely happy with her animal gift from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. In honor of Miley‘s work for animal rights, PETA decided to save a pig named Nora from being turned into bacon (and other delicious pig products for consumption) and “give” it to Miley for her birthday.
Miley Cyrus has been given a pig to celebrate her 20th birthday. Nora the pig was sponsored by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to thank the Hannah Montana actress for her generous support of animal charities. Cyrus tweeted: “Thank you so much for saving Nora in honor of my bday :) please send photos of the little cutie.” When she received the picture of the pig, she replied: “Oh my pigggggyyyyy! She is so cute I can hardly stand ittttttt!!!!” The 20-year-old added: “She looks so happy yay.” PETA announced that it had sponsored the pig “as a birthday gift to Miley Cyrus in recognition of her compassion for all animals as well as the kindness she inspires”. The singer and actress, who is engaged to The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, encouraged her fans to support animal charities for her birthday. She tweeted: “Thank you to all my fans who donated to @starkeyhearing @SpotRescueDogs for my birthday :) y’all topped it again best bday present by far!”
LOL! Well, I guess it makes sense that the girl who has everything she could possibly want would be perfectly happy getting a pig for her birthday. Because she will likely not actually “get” the pig and therefore won’t have to care for the animal, I’m sure Miley was very happy to express her joy and gratitude without having to really do anything with the pig. I think the real winner here is Nora. Altho she will likely not get to live in the lap of luxury with Miley Cyrus, she gets to live … period. I’d say that’s about the best news that Nora could ever get.
