I am like a puddle on the floor after seeing this picture of a fireman giving some water to a parched koala bear. Look at the koala’s little tongue! And the koala’s paw on the fireman’s hand! The koala is so polite and so thankful! Like a little person! This makes me want to truckjack a Sparklett’s water truck and drive through the ocean to Australia.
The koala friend was rescued by firefighters after it was found roaming a burned up forest 90 miles from Melbourne. The koala friend had burnt paws, but she’s doing better now and will hopefully be released back into the wild in about 5 months. I wish it would be released into my arms in 5 months instead. But wait. Do they scratch at human faces? If so, I’ll just “awww” from afar.
Also, friends and other have been sending me links on where to donate whatever you can to the victims and animal friends of the Victoria bushfires, so I’m passing that info on to you. Here’s where you can drop some cash to help:
