An Oklahoma family is working to change a city ordinance so they can keep Raisin, their four-legged, hoofed family member.
Raisin is just like any other family pet to them, but a city ordinance banning pigs is leaving Raisin unwelcome in his own city.
Raisin's owners say the miniature pig takes baths, does tricks, paints pictures and poses as an Instagram sensation with more than 9,000 followers.
Last night went very well! Nothing is in writing yet so I'm not at liberty to say a whole lot but everything seems like it's going to work out in our favor!

More than 100,000 people have signed a Change.org petition for updated ordinances to distinguish between farm swine and miniature pigs that are kept as pets.
Raisin's owners say the city has been very supportive, but if they have to, they will move in order to keep Raisin.
