Miley Cyrus is mourning the loss of her beloved pet Pig Pig.

The 26-year-old star announced the sad news to her fans via her Instagram account, thanking the late animal for ‘so many laughs and good times’.

Very sad to say… my dear friend Pig Pig has passed away…. I will miss u always thnak you for so many laughs and good times girls

Thankfully, husband Liam Hemsworth acted as her hero, rescuing her home menagerie – dogs, cats and pigs – from the blaze.

Speaking to radio host Howard Stern at the time Miley shared: ‘He was so incredible. He got all the animals out in his truck. He put two pigs in crates, which is so hard. He chased them with a hose! It was genius.

‘My cats are so stupid, one of them started running away… they’ve never been outside. He rescued them! He’s a decent guy.

‘He got a lot of action for saving the animals. We had to make sure he knew I was very, very grateful!’
