This is the sweetest pillow! Did you know: cows are as diverse as cats, dogs, and humans. Some are bright, while others are slow learners. Some are bold and adventurous, while others are shy and timid. Some are friendly and considerate, while others are bossy and devious. These gentle giants mourn the separation from and deaths of those they love, even shedding tears over their loss, but on factory farms, calves are generally torn away from their mothers within a day of their birth. This adorable pillow, illustrated by Portland, Oregon–based artist Kara Burke, depicts a mother cow with her baby calf and is the perfect way to remember that “babies belong with their mothers.” All proceed benefit PETA.
