We have some really adorable catches for you this morning. Hope you enjoy!

A Goat That Suffers From Anxiety Is Only Calm When She Is In Her Duck Costume – (

Yes, you read that headline correct. This little goat has separation anxiety that is only relieved when it’s dressed as a baby duck… We’re not certain we’ve ever seen a goat in a diaper but this is still pretty cute. (Pix in the link)

Meet Polly, a 6-month-old baby goat who suffers from separation anxiety and neurological issues and is partially blind. Luckily, she was taken in and given lots of love and care by a goat rescue, Goats of Anarchy. Founder of the rescue centre Leanne Lauricella told BuzzFeed News Polly is only calm when she is in her duck costume.

When This Commercial Came On The TV, Their Dog Had An Adorable Reaction – (

Do you think pets understand what they’re seeing when they happen to watch television with us? Well this one does, he sees the bulldog jumping from the cute commercial and jumps right along with it! Thank goodness dogs can’t use a phone, because they would be very susceptible to infomercials. (video in link)

When his baby sister starts to cry, this little guy jumps up on the bed and soothes her in a sing song voice until she’s calm. This is so sweet!
