Baby goat lovingly cared for by his new cat friend

Baby goat Iker had the misfortune of being born on a crowded meat farm in Spain. As a result, after only 11 days of life, he had a shattered leg, and a death sentence — his owner simply didn't see the use for him.

However, before that could happen, a family rescued little Iker, and brought him into the loving care of the Leon Vegano Animal Sanctuary. Together with Mino Valley Farm Sanctuary, they saved his life, turning the little goat's unlucky streak right around.

While Iker was recovering, he met another rescued animal, Cody the tabby cat, who immediately took to him, and started sleeping next to him every night. Cody has a knack for nursing animals, and now does so with others who come through the Sanctuary. However, his connection with Iker was particularly special.

Amistad entre un gato y un cabrito

Iker ha hecho un buen amigo, Cody. Desde que le ha conocido procura no separarse de él. Se echa con él, y le da tantos besos que Iker acaba por gritar para que se lo quitemos de encima. Aquí podeis ver a Iker dejándose querer y a Cody, queriéndole con locura. Tal vez se de cuenta de su estado de salud. Ha llegado muy mal, con fiebre, deshidratado, con dolor y lo peor, apenas quiere comer. Estamos haciendo todo lo posible por sacarle adelante. Por favor mandarle mucha fuerza!Iker es un cabrito de 7 días, rescatado con una pierna rota después de que el ganadero decidiera que le iba a matar por no ser rentable. Cody es un gato que nació en la calle y sufre Herpes Virus Felino y la enfermedad de Shunt. Ambos han vuelto a nacer en Leon Vegano Animal Sanctuary. ¿Nos ayudas a difundir el vídeo de su rescate?:údanos a seguir salvando animales:► Hazte socio desde 6€ al mes:► Compra un producto de nuestra tienda solidaria:► Haz Teaming con nosotros y dona 1€ al mes:► Haz un donativo: Banco SantanderIBAN ES95 0049 4388 3028 9001 5697Paypal:¿Quieres ayudarnos a conseguir un nuevo terreno para poder seguir rescatando animales?

I love that Iker's like, "OK, that's enough" toward the end. Cody just likes to be really thorough. After Iker's surgery, he was brought to Mino Valley Farm Sanctuary where he'll live out his days with other rescued animals like Cody. While he may never walk normally again, he's recovering well, and is surrounded by loving people. And Cody knows it was all thanks to him and his miracle tongue bath!
