Friar Bigoton even has a tiny Franciscan habit to wear now. How adorable is that?
"His life is all about playing and running," fellow friar Jorge Fernandez told The Dodo. "Here, all of the brothers love him very much. He is a creature of God."
Besides running and playing, Friar Bigoton also has more serious duties to attend to.
"Brother Carmelo preaching to the fish," says the caption on this delightful photograph, which was posted by Franciscan Kasper Mariusz Kapron.
One version of the album, shared by Proyecto Narices Frias, has collected over 15,000 likes and 37,000 further shares. Proyecto Narices Frias is the local animal rescue group that facilitated Carmelo's adoption. It hopes that other monasteries are inspired by this story to adopt strays too.
