If Ryan Phillips hears his window rattling at night, it's not burglars.

Rather, his particularly tall girlfriend expects attention.

When a shake and bang pulls Ryan Phillips awake, his thoughts don't leap to burglars and thieves.

No, the founder of "Life With Pigs - Farm Animal Sanctuary" knows this sound only too well: his girlfriend Jenna wants to cuddle - a cow!

Pure enjoyment: When Ryan starts crawling, there is nothing else for Jenna the cow.

Cow Jenna regularly requests hugs

"Jenna knocks every day, several times a day," Ryan writes on

Facebook

, where he regularly updates his followers about everyday life at his sanctuary in Virginia, USA.

She has plenty of space, as befits species-appropriate husbandry, but: "She likes to come to the window and see if we're eating or hanging out to let us know she's there."

Jenna likes to pop in to see what her favorite people are up to - and maybe what's on TV too?

Jenna came to the farm when she was only a few weeks old.

She was born on a dairy farm, where she was supposed to be taken to the slaughterhouse.

And that's only because she was sterile and therefore unsuitable for milk production.

Ryan raised her on the bottle: "The first bottle was the beginning of a friendship.

I think she considered me her surrogate mother.

She would bang her head in my stomach trying to get the milk out when the bottles were empty, just like calves do with their mothers.

She's definitely my baby.”

Cow Jenna has found a new home full of love

Cows, pigs and chickens still live next to Jenna on the farm – but Ryan is definitely her reference person, from whom she regularly gets her cuddling units and even drops in for the reading hour.

Many of the windows of the residential building are easy to see and reach from Jenna's meadow.

And with full intention: Jenna is loved.

She is part of the family, is spoiled and will never see a butcher.

She can spend her whole life here.

That's at least 18-25 years.

In contrast, she should have lived a much sadder - and shorter - life on the dairy farm.

Ryan is just happy: "I can't imagine a world without her.

I'm so lucky to have a 1400 pound best friend."

The other animals are also loved and cared for by the family.

Cow Jenna: The web loves her!

Comments are piling up under Ryan's Facebook posts, his followers love the black and white heavyweight with the brown eyes:

  • "I love this picture ❤"

  • "She's too funny!

    I needed that very much today 🤣🥰”

  • "Aaawww Jenna is just so cute 🥰"

  • “I pray daily that all animals will be recognized as living beings, not products.

    This breaks my heart 💔"

  • "Jenna is a precious treasure - I'll give her a hug from afar"

By the way, you can also cuddle with cows in many regions of Germany.

And some, for example in America, are also used for therapeutic purposes.
