Orphaned kangaroo and his animal friend
You might find it hard to believe, yet study has shown that friendships can have a big impact on our health and happiness.
Everyone needs companionship as a result, and animals are no different.
Even if the friendship is provided by a stuffed animal, it can help someone feel at peace and overcome any difficulties.
It is undoubtedly something to cherish and admire.
Introducing Doodlebug, a juvenile orphan kangaroo from Australia’s Northern Rivers region.
He is cared for by wildlife physician Gillian Abbott.
Since he was a newborn discovered orphaned in the wild, Doodlebug has been looked after by her and her son Tim Beshara, an assistant to Greens senator for Tasmania Peter Whish-Wilson.
Doodlebug is an Eastern grey kangaroo, not a wallaby.
But regardless matter what species he is, after Tim posted pictures of him with a teddy bear, he went viral and won over hearts everywhere.
In these images, we can sense the value of a kind embrace, especially for an orphaned wallaby.
Despite the fact that Doodlebug is big and healthy enough to go back outside, he still needs a little help from Abbott and her gang to survive in the wild.
Like other babies, Abbott thought Doodlebug needed a friend to comfort him and ensure his well-being.
She gave him a soft teddy to cuddle with as a result.
It is understandable that Doodlebug would want to embrace his favourite bear given that he has lost both his mother and his home.
He will recover quickly thanks to his bear.
