Miss Gremlin has a new best friend…Buddy the baby kangaroo. He’s my brother’s pet and is very cute. He thinks he’s a dog though. We spent an afternoon with my family and buddy entertained the kids for ages.
Even in Australia it’s a novelty to have a kangaroo as a pet. Glenn got him while out shooting and killed his mother without knowing she had a joey in the pouch, so he brought him home as a pet.
When he gets big, and he will, they are going to give him to a wildlife sanctuary place that’s close by. But in the meantime, all the kids love him and he’s quite the talking point.
