Mags Z. sent us this bootaful story via  The Telegraph of Maisie the Goat at Maria’s Animal Shelter in Probus, Cornwall. Maisie suffers from arthritis and has to wear wellington boots to help her condition. Recent downpours have left 12-year-old Maisie constantly squelching around in puddles and mud. So her keepers have provided pink wellies to protect her from foot rot – the animal equivalent of trench foot.

“Here is a pic of the big otter pile. It was like a feeding frenzy, then we walked away for a few minutes and next thing you know… Boom! Giant, napping otter pile!
