A to Z Challenge and Wordless Wednesday April 27, 2016

 
 
 
W is for Wednesday!
And for Wallaby!
(Photos and story thanks to the internet)
 
It has often been said that “elephants never forget,” but they are not the only animals who have that unique ability. In fact, most, if not all, animals have the ability to remember us and that also includes any kindness that we may have shown them. That fact is clearly demonstrated in what took place with this grateful wallaby.
When you look at the following pictures, provided by someone who has helped raise wallabies for over six years in Australia, you can really get a feeling for what this lovely animal was thinking. This kind woman helped to raise this orphaned wallaby, who has now come back to see her with a baby. Her name is Mirabooka and she was orphaned at only five months old after her mother was killed by an automobile. This inspirational woman raised the wallaby along with some foster brothers until she could care for herself.
 
 
Even now, the wallaby comes back to visit quite frequently and when she arrives, she even knocks on the door! Obviously, this wallaby is not only kind, she has manners as well. There came a time, however, when Mirabooka did not come back for a few weeks but soon she arrived with a new boyfriend and then, with a baby!
 
 
You can read more of her story at this LINK.
Enjoy your day and I'll see you tomorrow!

Precious! Cats remember things, too. All of my family's cats remember that i am the dispenser of medicines and don't like me much!

My husband once was asked by a girlfriend to go look at a Wallaby out on a farm somewhere. It hopped right over him. He said, "This isn't going to work." No way could they have built a fence high enough!

How cool! All living creatures respond to kindness, all are endowed with spirit!
