GoatSpawn is Here!

After a long, long wait, I, GoatSpawn, have finally arrived!

I'm a tiny little girl and just 10 days old today, but my proud parents, Foodgoat and Ladygoat, think I absolutely overflow with cuteness. And they're getting even more infatuated with each passing day.

Me, I have been excited to be introduced to this whole "eating" thing. Previous to my official arrival, I used an automatic nutrient supply system, but now I use this fascinating two-tap system. I have found that if it magically makes itself available if I furiously twist my head from side to side with my mouth wide open. Alternatively, a high pitched wail suffused with epic suffering also seems to work.

Unfortunately for the rest of the Goats, the three-a-day meal schedule just isn't doing it for me. I have a tiny stomach and it can't hold much, so in that long stretch of nighttime when they like to sleep soundly and contentedly, I like to have a couple of meals. Maybe a snack or two. It's around these times when it really helps that I'm adorable.
