The pint-sized, one-year-old critter hails from Poland and has gained over 35,000 followers since joining the platform in October 2015. In his popular pics, Ludwik is seen snacking on vegetables and showing off his unique sense of style (think pearls, oversize sweaters and blankets!).

Ludwik’s owner Agata Nowacka recently told The Dodo that he “seems to enjoy his photo sessions” and that she believes he “feels comfortable.”

In fact, Ludwik is so comfortable during his photo shoots, he’s often snapped sleeping. “He could sleep all the time,” Nowacka said. “He could spend most of his day in his blue polar blanket on my lap."

While Ludwik may be living the life of luxury now, he hasn’t always been such a pampered pet. Nowacka revealed that she rescued the skinny pig from a pet store where he was suffering from pneumonia, a fungal infection and conjunctivitis. After six months of rehab, the recuperated Ludwik found his true calling in life: modeling.
