Morning Run Down Undah

The Kids at Edgar’s Mission like to work up a good sweat before breakfast! (Or as they say Down Undah, “Brekkie.”)

Snorgles -N- Stuffies

Clipboard01Stuffies serve a real purpose at Edgar’s Mission in Australia. They give companionship to Bebeh ResQtes who are in desperate need of it! Check out more on this story here! Image from the EM FB.

Tilly

tumblr_nrs0q420f91up2b4zo1_1280Prolific Photographer Patrick Jones writes us about Tilly. “She was brought into our shelter suffering from severe head trauma and an untreated ear infection. Thanks to our amazing clinic staff and Tilly’s foster carers, she’s now doing much better.”

“There have been some lasting effects from what Tilly went through; the most obvious of which is that she always tilts her head to the left. This may improve over time, but for now, it definitely doesn’t stop her from enjoying life just as much as any other six-month-old kitten.”

_MG_9971_edited-1Karen A. wrote us yesterday and asked, “Would you be interested in featuring Babs on your site?” Well, let me think on that. OK I did. ABSOLUTELY!

“She is an orphaned baby red kangaroo who lives at the Kangaroo Haven in Kununurra in Western Australia.”

“The lady who runs it does amazing work. Here is an article about the haven.”

“The last photo is a little baby wallaby I have taken on under their adoption program, snuggling with his own pet teddy bear. I took all these photos myself. Thanks for your consideration.”

“(STILL) Need….More…Quolls”

We needed more Quolls back on April 17th. Nothing’s changed—we still need ’em.

Quolls are marsupials, related to the Taz Devil.

The Boing Boing story says few of these live in the wild anymore, and they’re fierce predators. So, bottom line- Cute. But be careful if you find yourself in the Outback with one.

‘Ow Bout A Nom, Sheila?

This Kurious Koala wants some eucalyptus leaves. He’ll take a nom on that hand, too. (Biting the hand that feeds you?)


Alicia A. sent that in and adds, “This koala nommed on my hand today and I’m totally okay with it! I found this wild koala snacking on some dud looking gum leaves, so I got a whole bunch of fresh yummy looking leaves from a healthy tree and presented it to the ‘obviously’ hungry koala. Koalas have real blunt teeth- it felt like my skin was being squashed in between two coffee mugs! This video was taken on a local reserve / playground area in my suburb Greenhill (near Adelaide) South Australia.”

Destination: Rottnest Island!

SONY DSCI’ve never met Quinn C. in person, but I’m sure he’s a fine fellow. Why? BECAUSE HE DID THIS.

“These photos were recently taken on a trip to Western Australia. I was there on business, but your Quokka posts inspired me to take an excursion to Rottnest Island. Being surrounded by these friendly, furry, little fellas: priceless.”

“P.S. While you’re there have a look around at my album of other furry and feathered friend photos (below) – they’re all indicative of the fauna present on this island country, and all humbly at your disposal. I’m especially proud of the Baby Wallaby because, you know….baby wallaby.

Crikey! Happy Fourth, Eh?

IMG_0199 (4)“Our delightful (and patient) office dog Indie, a Shih Tzu/Terrier cross, wishes all her American cousins a Happy 4th of July! (To be honest, she wasn’t that into it until we mentioned…hot dog eating competitions and then her interest was immediately peaked!) Have a wonderful day! -Danielle G., Brisbane Australia.
