Fifi the lamb is a 1-month-old Damara cross who was rescued by Edgar's Mission, an animal sanctuary in Victoria, Australia. Fifi's mother had gotten fatally tangled inside a fence, which left Fifi an orphan when she was only a few days old.
Pam Ahern, the founder of Edgar's Mission, knew that Fifi would need lots of love and attention to survive without her mother. "Fifi was so small and young when she came to us, so it was important to keep her spirits up," Ahern tells The Dodo. "Just like a human baby yearns for contact and company, so do baby lambs."
