Whatever Floats Your Goat

Friends, in farms everywhere, a silent tragedy unfolds: baby goats born with legs too short to reach the ground. For the innocents burdened with this mysterious affliction, life is an everyday struggle. Moving from place to place, even the joyful act of leaping in the air, are impossible dreams. But there is hope. With research, we can bring them down to earth and into normal lives. Please send your contribution, no matter how large, to: The I’ll Believe Anything Foundation, Box 57, Cayman Islands.

ResQte Of The Week (Part 2) (Pucker Up, Buttercup!)

“Buttercup is a baby goat, just a few days old. She lives at Soledad Goat Farm in Mojave, California —a rescue farm where all the animals get to live out their happy lives, and one of the very few goat farm dairies that does not take babies away from mom. Buttercup needed an extra helping hand from the humans today and decided that was a pretty good spot for a nap. Such a happy place!” -KB.

Ukraine Goats Really Knock Me Out

“I wanted to say thanks for doing what you do. I have been living in Ukraine since September, and there’s been a political revolution followed by an invasion. It’s great to come home and look at Cute Animuhls every evening, just to be reminded there’s still love and goodness in the world! In ‘Tocktober you published my goat-tock photo from my friend’s dacha. It turns out the goat had bebehs! They are sweet and soft and totally adorable!” -Emily C.
