Karl and Anastasia's current I Dare You All challenge is to make a friend of another species. This challenge turned out to be even more fun and exciting than I ever dreamed! Because I asked some very special other-species animals to be my friends. And they agreed! My NOMSS friends are:
Bob and Patrick because they are very handsome, friendly and nice goats. And I want you to learn all about them, so I did a special interview with Bob and Patrick, the Nigerian Dwarf Goats. Here is what I learned:
Bob and Patrick's favorite treat is vegetables! They especially like carrots. Cutting them into pieces makes it easier for the Boyz to eat them. They also like bread and fruit. There is an apple tree right outside their fence and sometimes the apples fall inside! Bob and Patrick are very lucky. I wish some tuna would fall inside my home. No luck so far.
Bob and Patrick do not have any little toys like I have, but they like to chew on cardboard boxes. They will chew on anything that's around, even the gutter downspout. That is very silly of them, because they get in trouble for taking off the downspout.
My goat friends just turned six years old in May. They came to live with Bobbie when Patrick was just three days old! Here are pictures of baby Patrick and baby Bob. They are very adorable.
Bob and Patrick do not like to get wet, so they get to go inside the basement in very bad weather. When they go inside and see a cat, Bob and Patrick get a little bit scairt. I think this is just because they are not used to seeing many cats. But maybe they are right to be a little scairt, because if I was in the basement with them, I might try to jump on their backs and go for a ride. I would never hurt them, though.
Here is a big surprise: the Boyz do not wear any cute fashions! When they were babies, they got to wear little collars, but they are too big for that now. And if they had fashions, they would just chew them all up.
Bob and Patrick had to get "weathered." I think this is like getting a hoo-ha-ectomy. So, they do not have any girlfriend goats. Any cute girl goats should check out Bob and Patrick! Because they are some mighty handsome goats.
Goats are very fun, and they make good pets. They have great personalities, just like we cats do! And guess what? They do not have any front teeth on the top of their mouths. They do not really eat tin cans, but they like to eat the paper and glue from the cans. This does not sound very delicious to me. Usually they eat Goat Chow.
Thanks for the interview, Bob and Patrick! I salute you, my Not of my Species Special friends!I hope you will visit the Cats, Goats and Quotes blog, or go here to see more about Bob and Patrick.
