The world is not kind to animals and often we hear tragic stories of how these beings are treated badly. Cecelia the goat was also in such a tragic state when a miracle saved her life. This adorable soul has gone through her share of tragedy before reaching her haven. Caitlin—who goes by @boochaces on TikTok—uploaded a video sharing her story, revealing how she ended up at the rescue from a farm. She shared that she came across Cecelia who had a hard life because of genetic complications.

She shares in the caption, "While assisting our friends at Happy Compromise at a local farm with an orphaned lamb rescue, I met Cecilia. It was clear to me that she had a wry nose and a few other congenital issues. I immediately thought she was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen." The footage features Cecelia getting shy at the showering of compliments by Caitlin. Her happiness upon receiving love from Caitlin is evident throughout the clip.

Caitlin was so besotted by her that she continued saying, "I just love you so much. I love you so much," At one point, it seems as if the compliments are making her smile. The farmer was going to send her to auction because she looked "messed up." He thought she was inbred, as all her children were coming out with some defects. In the overlay text, Caitlin shared what the farmer said: "She needs to go. I'm sending her down the road next week. She's been crying for her baby all day."

Cecelia's baby was taken away from her and given to one of the farm's workers as payment. The goat was impacted by the parting so much that she was crying day in and day out. Seeing her condition, the rescue team could not leave her behind. They had come to rescue a lamb and were in no way prepared to take a goat. However, they couldn't leave her behind. Moreover, sending her to auction opened her up to the possibility of another toxic home. The video ends with a promise on Caitlin's side: "Her name is Cecelia and she will never have another baby taken from her."

In the caption, she asked for donations to improve Caitlin's life. She wrote, "We would appreciate it if you could make a tax-deductible donation toward this very unexpected intake. Cecilia needed bloodwork, antibiotics and more. She has a follow-up vet appointment today. We can’t do this without all of you." In the follow-up video, Caitlin revealed that Cecelia has finally cleared her medical tests. She stated in the caption, "The moment you have all been waiting for! Cecilia was finally medically cleared to move in with her new girlfriends—Grandma Ruth and Robin."

The comment section was touched by Cecelia's story. @nani.the.babushka shared her opinion about the whole thing and wrote, "Humans can be the worst and the best in this world. You’re one of the best. Thank you for saving her." @taryn__9 applauded Caitlin's actions and commented, "So glad you gave her a chance, no mother deserves her babies being taken from her."
