The 2-week-old calf was malnourished and ill. She need a new home after being confiscated during an inquiry into animal abuse.

Carly Henry thought she sounded wonderful when she first heard about her. Henry said to The Dodo, “I was prepared to adopt her.” “A cow was all I truly wanted! I’ve heard it said that the greatest thing ever is a cow’s love.

Henry runs Carly’s Critter Camp, an animal sanctuary outside of Austin, Texas. She has rescued all sorts of animals who live on her farm, but this calf, being so young, would require constant care.

She would need to live in Henry’s home next to the sanctuary, with Henry’s dogs, cats and … her husband.

So that part meant a little convincing. What’s one more four-legged creature in need, right?

“I said to my husband, ‘Hey, look at this baby,’” Henry said. “I showed him a picture of the calf all covered up in blankets at the foster’s house. I said, ‘I really want to take her and bottle-feed her!’”

You’re insane, but well, let’s proceed!

She was giddy with excitement. In January, Henry made all of the adoption arrangements after getting in touch with the foster who had assisted in saving the calf.

As soon as she came, Henry’s husband was sold; he gave her the name Tulip. Henry responded, “He adored her. “Within 30 seconds, we were all in love. She was giving us hugs and kisses. She enjoyed receiving massages behind her ears.

Tulip fit in perfectly with all the other animals in Henry’s home, and Tulip made herself right at home — in the dogs’ beds.

“From the very start she’d come right inside, explore, and she would put herself to sleep right with us in our room,” Henry said.

Tulip experimented with every dog bed Henry had, but she frequently settled down and cuddled up with the dogs instead.

Henry’s husband was quite entertained with the calf’s instant adjustment to home life and their family. He shot a video of Tulip cuddling in one of the beds and you can hear the amusement in his voice: “Just a baby calf in our bedroom …”

“Oh my gosh, it’s true,” Henry said. “I love her too much, too, too much. She’s bigger, she’s healthy. I was so worried about her when she first came. I love her more than words can say.”
