"We believe at this point that she could live as a house pet as she is pretty much house trained," Amanda said. "She knows to go to the door when she has to go out. She thinks she is a family member."
Giraffey is extremely affectionate, acknowledges all her family members and acts like one of the family dogs, according to Amanda. "She visits Barley when he's on the couch and gives him kisses. She loves to go into the kitchen and drink out of the dog water bowl."
The calf also has a sense of humor as she approaches the big screen television, especially to watch "The Golden Girls." Classical music is her favorite and she perks up when listening to "The Nutcracker Suite." She lifts up her head when the Christmas tree lights are turned on. "It makes her happy," Amanda said.
The little calf who was so sick just days ago, now moos contentedly. "She came to my door to wake me up to go get her bottle," Amanda said of the calf who gets up every two hours and who has formed a strong bond with her. "I'm pretty much not getting any sleep. It's like having an infant."
Giraffey has Cody in her corner as well.
"I wasn't happy when I found a baby calf in my living room, but after a while, she won me over," Cody said.
Eventually Giraffey will go outside, "but it will be hard. We'll probably put her with Moobles so he can be her guardian and show her the ropes."
Giraffey is on the mend and doing much better. She is very affectionate and loves to snuggle at home with Amanda.Amanda Sorvino
