Idea Exchange: A Piglet in a pot: Solution for megaesophagus

Because of Piglet's congenital megaesophagus, her owner was holding her upright for 20 minutes after feeding every four hours. My solution to keep Piglet upright was to cut a hole in the top of a lid of a tin container and fit it with a tubular stockinette Piglet could poke her head and shoulders through to remain upright. Piglet has since grown into a laundry detergent container.
