Wildlife in Care

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


Had a visit from both my Mummies.  It was so good to see them.  I came out of my enclosure and showed Mummy how well I was doing my kangaroo hopping now.  She was so very proud of me.  I got an extra bottle, some strawberries and my favourite woolly bush.  Mummy always brings extras so I can share with my new sisters and Rocket and Straya.  I got to say goodbye to Phoebe (my ring tail possum sister) as she is going back to be released at HideAway Haven. 

I am getting stronger and come out of my enclosure every day for exercise.  Auntie Pauline really looks after me making sure I don't get over excited and hurt myself again.  I like spending time with Rocket, he is going to protect me when he gets bigger.  He is such a gentle little man.  One of my sisters KayDee has a joey in her pouch.  She is coming out of the pouch sometimes and is so cute.  The joey really looks much too big to still be in the pouch.  Not sure how KayDee gets around and still manages to jump over fences.

Mummy and Joslyn came to visit me.  My new role at Dreamers Dream is to be a Mummy to the babies.  Holly takes it a little too far though by wanting to get into my pouch.  Foster and Rocket are fun to be around.  I just love watching them play.  The other day it was raining and the ground was muddy, what fun.  I got out of my enclosure and raced around throwing mud up at Auntie Pauline then Rocket joined me and we had fun playing with the white washing on the washing line.  It wasn't white anymore when we were finished playing.

Because only the little ones were in the enclosure when Mummy was here I cuddled up on her lap for big cuddles while she fed me Woolly Bush and Blackberries.  It reminded me of home.  I am still very lethargic and not real keen on long runs, because I get tired.  But I am not in any pain and am alive and now I have a role to play in the lives of other joey's who have lost their Mummy.  I know Mummy really misses me and I love it when she comes to visit.
