Koala’s Bucket

No, it’s not a new computer game, but the cuteness overload while checking out this koala’s bucket was so great that I had to share. I’m unsure this email’s original source, but mom just passed it on to me.

You might want some coffee to go with this sweet…

It has been so hot in South Australia for over a week…40+ degrees Celsius (104 degree Fahrenheit) everyday, very dry also.

A guy at work lives at Maude. His wife sent him these photos of a little Koala which just walked into the back porch looking for a bit of heat relief. She filled up a bucket and this is what happened! (Photos are dated 30 January 2009)



The little koala’s docility seems a bit shocking, but the interaction is precious.


Say it with me now…awwwwww!


Now perhaps we know who stole the Walrus’ bukkit!

Update: Julie just told me she saw this on Cute Overload the other day. I don’t know if that site is the original source or not, but it’s definitely worth checking out if you like seeing things that make you go awwww.

Side note – how wild that I used the phrase “cuteness overload” as a description!  Great site, apt name, now bookmarked. 🙂
