A Rescued Calf Becomes The New Companion For A Blind Cow Who Lost Her Pig Best Friend
April 19, 2016
Deborah Devlin runs the Don’t Forget Us Pet Us animal sanctuary in Dartmouth, Mass.
One of her rescues is a blind cow named Baby.
Baby spent the last eight years living with her pig best friend, Lulu. Devlin says Lulu and Baby were inseparable. Lulu would guide baby around the farm, and even though they each had separate sheds, they chose to share one.
But Lulu died Sunday, and Baby was heartbroken. Devlin says Baby was mooing all day and night.
But fortunately, she wasn’t alone for long.
The calf, who has yet to be named, spent several weeks on the loose after escaping a farm with two other cows.
The calf’s owner eventually found her, and she was returned to the farm last week. She had been destined for the slaughterhouse, but Jean Briggs saw stories about its escape and used her tax refund to buy the calf for $450.
Briggs then offered the calf to Don’t Forget Us Pet Us.
Since the new calf was introduced to Baby on Tuesday, the two are doing great together.
“In case you need something to smile about before bed…. these two are doing great!!!!!”
Don’t Forget Us Pet Us currently has over 60 unwanted and neglected animals at the sanctuary with no employees.
