Senior residents love Olive the baby goat

- There's a new "kid" in town at an assisted living facility in Kansas.

Olive the goat is a two-week-old half-pygmy half-fainting goat. She was brought to the Oakview Estates facility by the director and her owner, Desiree Humble, and she's a huge hit with the residents.

Despite Olive's popularity, the Oakview Estates residents have been able to get along while they wait their turn for some one-on-one time with this bright-eyed billy.

"We've not had any fights yet. I've told everybody we've got lots of grandmas here to love her, and hold her, and help take care of her," said Humble.

The residents say they love watching Olive jump around. "We all just love her!" says resident Marie Albertini.

Olive will grow to be about 30 pounds and may not be suitable for visits at that size. That's a decision Humble says she and her staff will have to make down the road, but for now, she's spending time at the facility getting so much love from the residents.
