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


Happy Mother's Day


Thanks for taking care of me and loving me

until I can take care of myself, 

which might be a while from now.

Wishing you all the joy, care and love you all deserve on this special day! Without your love and care I wouldn't be here today.  It might take a long time to become a wild child again and maybe I will never grow big and strong, but with so much love in my life, with so many sisters, a couple of brothers and some babies who need looking after, I am happy and content.

Thank you Mummy for taking care of me and saving me when my Mummy was killed and I was just a tiny baby.  Then when I cut my foot so badly and rescuing me when I suffered myopathy after a dog chased me.  Thank you for taking in Josie and raising her till she decided to go be with other wild kangaroos.

Thank you Auntie Pauline for being a Mummy to so many fur kids.  Without you so many would have died or suffered.  Thank you for being up through the night to feed the babies, who when very small are often in need of being fed every couple of hours. You are an inspiration to us all with your dedication and commitment to help wildlife in need. 

Thank you to my sister Joslyn for being Mummy to Phoebe a ring tail possum who is now living the life of a wild child at night and spending her days safely and warmly in her pouch.

Happy Mother's Day to all the wildlife carers. Without you so many would die after being orphaned or injured. We know you can't save them all but thank you for allowing those that can't be saved, a safe warm heart and home to pass away in.

Here is a photo of me when I was still very little and still living at home with my Mummies.
