6-month old Polly the goat unfortunately has a plethora of medical issues. She suffers from separation anxiety, neurological issues, and is partially blind. Don’t worry though, because the goat rescue group Goats of Anarchy.

Founder of Goats of Anarchy Leanne Lauricella recently made an amazing discovery: Polly gets wicked relaxed when Lauricella puts her in a little duck costume.

Yeah. It’s as cute as it sounds.

Thundershirts apparently have no effect, but this costumer does the trick, according to Lauricella:

As soon as I put the costume on her, she [will] fall asleep. Later, I tried it again and she relaxed and fell asleep again. I realized that it had some kind of calming effect on her. … I’m thinking it feels like a big hug.”
