We all have our fears. Acrophobia (fear of heights), arachnophobia (fear of spiders), and spectrophobia (fear of ghosts), are just a few common fears that people have.

Some fears may be a bit more odd, serious, or even incompatible! While one may think that mysophobia (fear of dirt), would be likened towards someone perhaps more uppity or pristine, for our latest Cute Find, it’s one pig’s incongruent oohs and aahs that made him a stylish attraction. Cinders, a proper British pig, is apparently a mysophobic! In order to allow Cinders to explore and dig like the rest of the piglets, her owner fashioned her a pair of boots! Stylish and functional! Who’s afraid of a little mud?
