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."
When Ahern had to work inside of the house, she put a baby diaper on Fifi and took her with her. While Fifi could have wandered into any room she wanted, she chose to stay right next to Ahern. "I was working about a foot away from her when the photo was taken," Ahern explains. "It was hard not to get distracted by a cute little lamb sleeping nonchalantly in a cat bed."
