PEAVINE, Okla. (KFOR) — Her backyard is a convalescent home this summer.
Genia Kay Meyer brings a bottle every morning for her one patient, a downed calf named Cupcake.
“She was my cousin’s,” Meyer says. “They had worked with her. We got her at five-weeks-old.”
“She was born with her front legs [crooked] like that. Her back legs were crooked too but they straightened up,” she added.
Genia’s husband, Tim, helps out too.
But the nurse spending the most time with Cupcake, virtually every minute, is Bo, a puppy not even a year old himself, but a true friend in the making.
“The very first day we took her home and started her on the bottle, he just took up with her and started licking up all the milk off her face, and wouldn’t leave her,” Meyer said.
