Not even a month ago, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy announced their official split after 40 years together. And now, Kermit has reportedly already met a new, lucky lady.

A story in People magazine says Kermit has been spotted around town with a pig named Denise, who works for marketing at ABC.

Kermit took to Twitter to address the rumor of his new relationship, saying it is true that he's dating again. "However, at this time no one woman--pig or otherwise--is my official "new girlfriend". We are simply close friends," he wrote.

Miss Piggy seems to be handling the news just fine, though.

Actor William Shatner tweeted out a link with the news that Kermit was seeing someone new, and asked if Miss Piggy was available.

She responded, "Very much available, mon cher. Gimme a call! I'd love to boldly go where no pig has gone before."

Despite their split, Kermit and Miss Piggy have vowed to remain professional on their new prime-time comedy, "The Muppets," which premiers Sept. 22 on ABC. "The Muppets" is a mockumentary-style look at Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie and the gang as they produce a late-night talk show for Miss Piggy called "Up Late With Miss Piggy."
