Adorable goat named Cowboy Bebop

All photos: Ruth O'Leary

When Sydney-based photographer Ruth O'Leary learned that a friend had taken in a 3-week-old foster goat, she jumped at the chance to capture his promotional adoption photos.

"How often do you get to photograph an indoor goat that wears nappies and a different outfit every day?!" O'Leary explains on her website, Ruthless Photos.

So what's the skinny on this dark brown baby goat, you ask? Well, first off, his name is Cowboy Bebop, which might ring a bell if you happen to be a fan of neo-noir anime space westerns. Bebop's hobbies include chewing on glass coffee tables, nibbling on throw pillows, head butting his fellow foster pups, and modeling the latest in Hawaiian shirt fashions.

Despite his adorably destructive goat-like proclivities, you'll be happy to know that it didn't take long for him to find his forever home! As O'Leary explains, "Bebop has since been adopted and has gone to live on a hobby farm with a rescue pig and dogs and a family who adore him."
