Sammie Jo's Diary

Our guests love meeting Sammie Jo and Josie.  They get to cuddle her, some feed her but everyone loves her.  Sammie Jo and Josie would have to be the most photographed joey in Australia. A guest today mentioned she would love to see Sammie Jo's progress over the years so could we put some updates on our webpage ans they are not Facebook users. This is her diary. and now Josie has joined her. Please feel free to like and make comments


I am now 12 months old and weigh about 6kg.  I am getting a bit heavy to be carried around, but I still loves my cuddles.  I enjoy 3 bottles per day and love to graze all day.  I love it when Mummy takes me to the bottom of the hill and lets me race along the fire break.  I get to race like a real kangaroo and kick my heels in the air.

I don't spend any time in my 'pouch' aks a as pillow case any more during the day, but look forward to night times when I get to cuddle up for the night in the office..

Nights get a little long sometimes, so occasionally I will wake my Mummy up at 3:30am and see if I can convince her to give me a bottle.  It doesn't work, so one morning I pretended that I needed to go outside to pee, so Mummy sat outside with me until it was time for my bottle at 4:45.  Don't think I will do that again as she wasn't happy.  Can't anyway because they close the office door and I can't get out.

I love playing Hide and Seek.  I hide and then Mummy seeks but then I usually have to go find her because she gets lost looking for me.
