Grampa Bender couldn’t run the Bed and Biscuit animal boardinghouse without the help of Ernest the mini-pig, Gabby the Vietnamese mynah bird, and his young cat, Milly. These three animals think of themselves as Grampa’s family, and they have always assumed he felt the same way. But when Grampa brings home a mysterious bundle and stops paying attention to his faithful friends, they start to worry. Will an earnest, loyal pig be able to soothe Milly’s injured feelings, calm Gabby’s ruffled feathers, and bring the family back together?

“Ernest the pig is particularly fetching.” -EW.com

    " I liked it because it was about animals. My favorite part was when Milly the cat got jealous when a new visitor, a wee scottie dog, came to the Bed and Biscuit. "

    " I purchased the series for the library. "Bed & biscuit" is a good idea but only offers a bland background setting. Not really relevant to the character interaction. It's farm animals with human problems. "
