I'm in love....and in tears....

did you see ellen today?
she ran this video from austraila and told the story about how koalas don't usually drink water as they get all their water needs from the leaves in the plants they eat...mostly eucalyptus and how this little guy drank 3 bottles from the fire fighter who saved him ?
Also....this little guy was taken to an animal hospital with his little paws burned and will now make a full recovery....oh yeah, and normally koalas' don't really like people.


  1. oh my gosh, I had seen short clips on the news but not the whole video. That was so sweet. I heard today that it is a female and they are taking care of her at a refuge and there is a male koala that has taken to her and stays by her side. Thanks for posting the video :)

  2. Beth:
    Yes, I saw that on Ellen today.
    Just touches your heart! Wish
    there were more stories like that
    so all people were more kind to the
    animals that live among us.
    God Bless the Beasts & the Children!

  3. I hadn't seen this...so thanks! It's so cute! I'm glad the little koala is going to be better!

  4. Oh I am so glad you posted this! I saw it on the news a few days ago and I can't stop thinking about the little guy.


**I love reading the comments you leave, as they make me feel like we're sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea, discussing life and wondering where all the time has gone ...beth
