Steve is an eight-month-old ginger cat who is the leader of his own flock of lambs. He started out as an indoor cat, owned by Amanda Whitlock in Waitotara, New Zealand. During the cold winter months, Amanda would bring her lambs inside the home to keep them warm and something unusual happened. He developed an unusual (and adorable!) relationship with his lambs! Amanda told the NZ Herald:
“He’d just sort of get used to them and spend time with them inside and then the lambs move outside and we started noticing Steve wasn’t inside any more and we’re like ‘where’s Steve?’
And they’d look out the window to find Steve outside interacting with the lambs. He’s become their “leader” and the lambs follow him around the garden.
