Super cute vid
I have a rescue cat (raised in a purse) who loves Cheetos and Mexican food and scared by songbirds. Not a great choice for barncat. We treated him like a cat, stalk'n'pounce play and introducing him to his prey. He is pretty much self fed now.
I have a rescue dog, food and play insecure with people and lover of everything else animal (you should see him play with his Pomeranian buddy and snakes). Not a great choice for guardiandog. We treated him like dog, dom/sub relations, follow the leader etiquette. A fast n nimble mutt (besenji/lab) Chase's away critters and returns on command.

I am a 'rastler with my pets as well, as a matter of training, taking it to the point were they get overwhelmed (humans are #1) and maybe pissy (don't worry PETA). I believe this has helped these "Boys named Sue" to thrive in my environment. I have seen my #10 cat F up some varmints that can easily be fatal and my dog play ragdoll with those species and not be runoff by them playing nasty.

You'll have to search far n wide to find pets better mannered more loving and with the controlled ferocity of metro police.

Play prepares for when 'S' gets real. I've heard of goats having and not having problems with predators. As a laissez faire aspiring farmer I can only prepare the youth for the situations they may face and hope their rearing has given them the toolbox to thrive. I don't desire a petting zoo and this goat exhibiting goatness is good to see encouraged.
Always look on the bright side of life. At least this ad is really tiny:
