Windy Hill or Muddy Hill?

It is still raining here - not that we are complaining.
It is very muddy, very wet, very soggy - but we are NOT complaining.
Ok just a little bit!

We have had a couple of new arrivals this week.

Firstly we had this little fellow who was chased by cats and got himself caught up in between a door and a fly wire door. He was only with us for a few hours, had no injuries so we released him back into his area.
He is a Sugar Glider and they have a velvety soft coat and the most fascinating flaps that they glide with.
We had another Brushtail Possum come in. His Mum was hit by a car. He is the same size as April. We have housed them together and hope to release them as a pair - although April is being a little reluctant to accept him.
We have called him Leo.

Unfortunately we had to make the decision to have our littlest Wombat, Tessa euthanased - she just didn't have enough energy to put up the good fight.
It's not all nicey nice in the wildlife care world.
But I still wouldn't change a thing.

and Leroy??? He's doing well!
Cheers from here!

I think that if we didn't live on the other side of the world, I would have to offer to foster Leroy!!!
