A Goat Followed Me Home
A goat followed me home today and it won't leave. It's a little pigmy goat, white with little horns that he likes to butt you with. He is also wearing a collar, but no tags. We don't know where he came from and nobody claims him. The police and sheriff's department did not receive any missing goat reports and animal control doesn't handle goats.
I tried to make him go home, wherever home is, but he cried and cried, very, very loudly. He ran to the garage and tried to get in the house but I can't let a goat in. I picked him up and carried him out to the yard where he met THE CATS! Oooooh, scary!!!
The best I can do is put him in the chicken pen with a dog igloo until morning. Then if no one claims him we will have to take him to the shelter. If they won't take him, well, I just don't know what I can do, but he can't come home with me and eat hundreds of dollars of landscaping, our siding, the camper, etc. I don't want to abandon him either. He has a collar, someone must be missing him!
I want a barn. I'd keep him.
