Can You Believe This NYC Pet is a LAMB? [video]

“Everyone should own a lamb,” says Maxine Cher, whose boyfriend and chef, adopted him. Instead of putting him on the menu, they kept him as a pet. At first, Smokey was bottle-fed three times a day and burped like a baby on their shoulder. Washing him every day entailed showers with no soap; soap causes his wool to shrink.

“Smokey Da Lamb” was born at Violet Hill Farm in upstate New York. When he arrived to  Manhattan’s Lower East Side, people and dogs weren’t quite sure how to react. Smokey loves playing in the park, but “dogs,” Maxine says, “freak out because they’ve never seen a lamb before.”

Having a lamb in a New York City apartment is illegal, officials have pointed out. As a result, they returned Smokey to the farm and adopted him to prevent him from being butchered. But still, having a lamb for a pet in New York City is incredible.
