Wildlife in Care

At HideAway Haven we rescue, rehabilitate and release our precious wildlife.  Follow the story of our kids in care.


I have been out and about enjoying the great outdoors and hanging with some new friends. Sunday afternoon I saw Joslyn and Mum traipsing through the paddocks, jumping over creeks, negotiating electric and barb wire fences and avoiding snakes.  I was with my new friends, so it was kinda embarrassing.  They got scared and took off into the distance and I followed them, hoping Mummy didn't know I was part of the mob.  We all look the same so it it a bit hard to tell. If you are a human reading this imagine having fun with your mates at the night club and your parents show up to take you home? Not sure if I will ever live this down.

The next morning I was enjoying my breakfast when I heard Mummy calling.  I was all by myself this morning and it was a bit lonely.  I waited for Mummy to come close and it felt so nice to hear her voice again.  She asked me if I wanted to come home and have a bottle.  The magic word 'bottle ' I would do almost anything for that.  I followed Mum for awhile but after getting through the last fence I raced on ahead making sure Mummy was following me.  

I enjoyed my bottle and fresh fruit scraps, some kangaroo muesli and got a long cuddle from Mummy.  We Skyped with Doug, Johnnie, Sam and Pa (Pa hadn't met me before.  You know he is the only Granddad in America with a kangaroo grand daughter?) Josie is so happy to have me around as well.  She has this big smile on her face.  

I had a great day yesterday and answered the call of the wild again at 5pm but was back again this morning.  After all how do I face my new wild friends when they know Mummy comes and looks for me and I give in for a bottle??  Not sure if I can ever live that one down.
