Don’t Snuggle the Help

One of my best friends was sick on Mothers Day and was going to spend the day alone. I couldn’t allow her to do this, so after church I decided to take Becca over to see her. She had never seen one of my goats up close and she was surprised at how friendly Becca was. I had to put Becca in a nappy for the car ride, my friend though it was so cute. When I got home Becca somehow managed to follow me into the house. Mocha and Chai do a great job of keeping our house free of insects and other varmints, but the sight of a goat in the house was a bit of a surprise to them.

Chai decides to size Becca up for a possible dinner invitation.

A wise woman (OFG) I know warned me against “Snuggling the Help”, I think I may have failed.

    Thank goodness for wood floors eh? Love the pics! I can't even imagine what my cats would do if they came face to face with our goat or one of our chickens… but I can imagine a big thought-bubble with "WTF?!?"

    How can you not snuggle the help when they are as cute as Becca??

    Who was more startled, goatie or kitty? Picture # 2 they both look curious, but we have a definite flush of victory look in #3! Cute pics!Cat

    Frugal Mom – WTF is about right.Cat – Becca was definitely more startled, the cats were just trying to figure out if goat tasted better than spider!

    Ooooh….of *course* she belongs in the house! And if we lived closer to each other, she'd be invited into mine, too! 🙂

    I read your blog, Pete and Reggie only get to look into the front windows and door, and you have to sweep up afterword.

    Well, yeah, but that's now…now that they're insolent, incorrigible teenagers who don't mind their manners, they have to stay outside. But when they were tiny and cute and carry-able, like Becca, they got to come inside sometimes. And if I had a sweet little girl goat, well, sigh, she'd get to come in all the time. That's not sexist, is it? 😉

    The problem with letting cute little girl goats in the house is that the stinky boy goats (or misbehaving used to be boy goats) try to follow them in!
