Koala Love.



I saw the photo of this yesterday on Pigtown Design but this video will break your heart (in a good way).

Millions of animals have been killed in the Australian wildfires and many more have been injured. If you are inclined to make a donation, click here.

UPDATE: Uh-oh. I noticed this morning on Yahoo that Koala's a star. Just wait til Fuck You, Penguin gets a hold of him. Oh, no, too late (actually, it's a different koala, but who cares?). If you have no idea what I'm talking about, click here. It's the funniest thing on the internet.

I read this update on the koala earlier:

Sam is being treated at the Southern Ash Wildlife Shelter in Rawson, 100 miles east of Melbourne, where she has attracted the attention of a male koala, nicknamed "Bob," manager Coleen Wood said. The two have been inseparable, with Bob keeping a protective watch over his new friend, she said.

Forever friends!

Oh, my heart goes out to the poor little bear. HG, you were the first to bring us that clip! NBC's Today Show showed it on air this morning and the little bear was a girl btw. The firefighter brought her to a vet and she has bandages on her feet. But the prognosis is good and she will recover!

I was walking the dog this morning and Scott Simon from NPR was interviewing a jounalist from Australia. He was talking about a woman caring for baby koalas and how he saw a bunch of laundry baskets with stuffed toy koalas in them. When he looked more closely, there were baby koalas clinging to the toy mummies because they were missing theirs and they heal better with a mummy. I just had tears streaming down my face listening to this. I gave Connor a huge hug after it.
