    Lost Exotic Pet?

    Hello! On my next door neighbor app, I came across this post. I kind of laughed at the description but then I wondered, could the animal shes describing be a skinny pig? If not, any other ideas? Its just such a weird animal that shes describing.

    Sure sounds like it's a skinny pig, or a Baldwin. I would send her a picture and ask if it's similar. If it is, ask her to take it in and call a shelter or SPCA. It won't last long under her deck.

    I sent her a picture of a skinny pig. I also told her to call an animal shelter if it is.

    Yes I got an answer. Apparently it’s definitely not a skinny pig. Some people are saying naked mole rat? In the middle of Virginia?

    Im thinking a cat with severe mange. Anyway I told her to call animal control.

    Could be a hairless cat too. Glad it's not a piggie, as it wouldn't last long.

    Naked mole rats are blind and have VERY long teeth.

    yeah, I’ve seen them at the zoo. I’m pretty sure that naked mole rats don’t live in Virginia. But anyways, they creep me out a bit.

    This is such an interesting post. I've been racking my brain trying to figure out what she is seeing. If she ever posts on the next door app and lets people know what this chubby creature turns out to be can you let us know?
