Look at how happy he is!!
Not only is he urging the church not to alienate children of same-sex couples, but it seems Pope Francis has found himself a new best friend…
An adorable baby goat!!!
His Holiness visited a live nativity scene at the parish of Sant'Alfonso Maria de Liguori in Rome during the Epiphany day yesterday and showed off his
furry soft side when he made friends with an all white baby goat.
While the goat perched upon Pope Francis' shoulders, he thought to himself ___________!

Jose Canseco is a legend for a whole slew of reasons, mainly baseball-related.
He's now going down in the annuls of history for a very different reason: he was pulled over by cops while transporting goats, goats that were wearing diapers.
And then he tweeted a picture of it (above).
And we don't know what to do with our lives anymore.
We understand it was necessary so the goats wouldn't pinch goat-loaves all over the car, but why is he using a car to transport them?? It can't be safe for either Jose OR his goats!
He tweeted this along with the photo:
Health officials in Minnesota are investigating an E. Coli outbreak linked to a pumpkin farm's petting zoo.
We had no idea petting zoos held any danger worse than maybe getting nipped by a goat!
According to the state's Department of Health three kids between the ages of 1 and 7 have gotten the particularly dangerous O157:H7 strain of the infection.
The chairman of prevention at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville said:
In Gobabis, Namibia in Africa there is a delicate balance of nature.
Livestock, like goats, are integral to the economy and society.
But there's always the constant threat of attack because Namibia is home to the world's largest population of wild cheetahs!!
So how do you keep your livestock safe??
These cutie pooches protect their goat buddies against cheetahs but don't kill them.
They just scare most predators away!
So ever since the dogs were introduced into Namibia 19-years ago, the area has seen the largest population of wild cheetahs in 30 years at 4,000!!
That's incredible! The dogs protect the flock, so there's no longer a reason for farmers to have to kill cheetahs!!

Surf's up for these two adorables!
When a Hawaiian hunter named Jake Marote came across a baby goat abandoned by its mother - he took the helpless animal in and raised him as his own.
He named the little guy - Billy!
And that's just where the cuteness begins!
Recently, Jake has decided to try and get some rad photographs of his slick surfing moves, and since he takes his baby goat everywhere - that means the little guy's going on the surfboard!
Now the goat doesn't actually ride with Jake when he's hanging ten, but Billy does saddle up next to Jake when he's out on the water. And the water totally doesn't freak the baby goat out!
Probably because he's too busy showering Jake with his baby goat love!!!
Check out the story here to get the cuteness in FULL detail!!!

Two Pygmy Goat kids at Five Sisters Zoo in the UK are SUPER cute!
They're just like regular goats, except fuzzier and tinier… so they're way better.
The best part??
An older goat is heavily pregnant!
So there's gonna be even more babies soon!!
The zoo keepers are expecting her to give birth any day now.
So we can stare at these young goats for now but once those babies come, we won't know what to do with all the cuteness!
Woo! Can't wait to see the little cuties!

Ha! No way! That baby goat totally thinks her mirror twin is real!
So how do baby goats play??
They smash their heads into each other apparently!
So what does this goat do??
She smashes her head into her mirror self!
Jeez! That doesn't hurt? And how does that mirror not shatter?
Either way, it's super freakin' cute and we can't stop watching!
Check out the video (above) to see a cutie goat playfully attacking herself!
