My Not of my Species Special Friends!

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 & Patrick the goats!

I have always loved 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.

Daisy, goats are very interesting. Until I saw your blog I had never seen a goat but I think they do look a bit like clippy cloppy horses and vishus deer (except smaller). FAZ

Hi Daisy, Thanks for introducing us to your goat friends. They are very nice goats and they were cute when they were babies. Maybe you could teach them not to be scairt of cats.

David E Maeda said...

Excellent interview Daisy. You've made me want to me Bob and Patrick. I've never really met a goat but from what you've written they seem like decent folks.

Hoo ha ectomy. Hee hee.

Mosaic Cats said...

Today we remembered to come here before we are fully awake so that we wake up happy. And we did. And we are!
What a wonderful interview, Daisy, and the baby photos are amazing. Who knew they would be so grown up at 3 days?
We learned a lot from this. Thanks!

The Cat Realm said...

Thank you, Daisy, so much for accepting the Dare and your wonderful post!
These goats are adorable, I will have to come back again and again to look at their baby pictures! I had never seen a baby goat before - how cute they are!
And the interview was just awesome! I think we all learned a lot and that was exactly what I had in mind with this second dare - you captured it beautifully!
Thank you, Daisy!
Your friend Karl

Dobby said...

Daisy,
Those goats look really interesting. My GrandpaDave has a goat that I like to chase around because he's so scairt of EVERYTHING. I wish he had a blog but he does not. Bob and Patrick look like fun friends. Good choice.

Jimmy Joe said...

Baby goats sure are cute, Daisy! Another great thing about goats is that they make cheese, too!!! (at least lady goats, I think). Goat's cheese is super yummy.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

karen said...

Those are a couple of adorable goats. When I was little my Grandpa had goats who had curved horns. My sister was bent over the stream that ran through the farm picking some flowers, and the little male with the horns actually put his little head down and charged! He hit her right in the bottom and knocked her into the stream. After Mom made sure she wasn't hurt, it was really funny. Thank you for reminding me of such a happy memory Daisy!

Icon Baxter Bentley said...

I do like Bob and Patrick and considered them for my friends, but I thought I had to meet NEW species folks... I've talked to a pig and even thought of approaching a supposed not so vishus deer.

Snoskred said...

Your blog is wonderful Daisy, it always makes me LOL. My kitties have been wishing that Tuna would fall inside their home too, and as yet no luck. But they think if we move closer to the sea.. maybe that is the secret, because Tuna do not swim in the sky. ;)

We like yer new furrends Daisy. They look like furry nice goats. Mum sez there yoosed to be a big Billy goat at the next farm to us, but he wuz mean. He would chase efurryone and butt them wiv the big horns on his head. Sometimes he would go into the village and git on the bus, then he wouldn't let anyone else git on, and he wouldn't let anyone git him off. The busdriver yoosed to haf to run to the farm to git the lady to take him home.

Henry Helton said...

Daisy, you accepted the challenge quick. Definitely didn't waste any time. I am having a difficult time picking who I want to interview. I worry they will say no! I hope not!

Daisy said...

Oh Henry, I am sure they will not say no to you!

Poppy said...

Hi Daisy! I just found you through Dobby's Not of My Species challenge. I'm a dog, but it's okay because I like kitties. Come visit! (I love your stroller, by the way. I'm trying to convince my mom to get me one.)

Karen Jo said...

You did a great interview with Bob and Patrick. They sound like very nice goats.

Monica said...

Well, they sound nice in the interview. but aren't they just a little bit scary looking?

Pricilla said...

Daisy!
I am a Nigerian dwarf goat too! My name is Pricilla. I live on a small farm with three other goats; Abigail, Michael and Luke. Michael and Luke are not "wethered" so they get to have goat girlfriends. I also live with three cats; Fred, Stinky (don't ask) and Pumpkin. I really enjoy looking at your pictures even if I do occasionally butt my cats....I can be a baaaaaaad goat.
