Baby goat adorably asks for ‘head scratches’

When you think of words to describe goats, ‘cuddly’ probably isn’t one of the first words that comes to mind. They’re cool animals that are funny and have big personalities, but they aren’t known for being so affectionate.

But one rescued baby goat is here to show the world just how cute and cuddly goats can be. Along with being adorable, he also makes some adorable sounds.

In a video posted by Barn Sanctuary, a baby goat is featured during a cuddle session. The person filming the video pets the goat, and the goat, named Twitch, loves it. But when this caretaker pulls back their hand, Twitch can’t contain himself.

When the cuddles stop, the goat immediately squeaks. It is almost as if he is demanding more attention and cuddles, and it’s super cute.

This goat is a little too young to make the “baaa” sounds that we associate with goats, and these squeaks sound just like he is asking for more.

As if sounding cute wasn’t enough, he also looks adorable.

This goat adds some action to his demands for pets. In addition to squeaking, he chases after the hand, and even headbutts it a few times.

You can also see his little tail wagging at some angles. It definitely seems like this baby doesn’t just love his cuddles, he is also assertive about it.

This little guy was rescued by Barn Sanctuary.

Barn Sanctuary is a rescue organization based in Michigan that rescues and rehabilitates farm animals.

Through their hard work, they have saved over 100 animals that now live on their barn land. They have a variety of animals at their farm, including ducks, cows, and goats!

These animals are given another chance and get to have a far better quality of life than they experienced at other farms. In addition to rescuing these animals that were neglected or abused, Barn Sanctuary also does educational programs to help the public learn more about rescuing farm animals.

Twitch had a harrowing early life story, but thankfully Barn Sanctuary stepped in.

According to his bio on Barn Sanctuary, Twitch and his twin sister Portia had a rough go of it right after their birth. Only a few hours after their birth, these two baby goats were found facedown and motionless among the hay.

Their farmer gave them up to Barn Sanctuary, who quickly nursed them back to health with a bottle of formula, a warm blanket, and lots of love.

Since that, Twitch had grown up to be a gentle but shy goat. He enjoys spending time with his sister Portia and grazing in the grass.

That being said, he’s become a fan favorite, as the video of him squeaking went viral, and then another video of him meeting a dog also got quite popular.

It’s safe to say that Twitch is living the life now.

People on the internet fell in love quickly with baby Twitch.

The video has over 33 million views. Additionally, there are so many comments fawning over Twitch and how cute he is.

One person adorably wrote:

“I’m trying to picture this goat because it’s literally the size of my cat based on that guy’s hands. What a tiny little critter! 🥰”

It definitely is special to witness something as adorable as this, and it’s all thanks to Barn Sanctuary for rescuing this sweet baby.
