A SOGGY KOALA
I sent the pics to my husband (away at the time), and he suggested I try to get help for the koala, because he must be in distress. I called Cleland Wildlife Park, and was advised by the duty officer to leave the animal alone until the next morning, in the hope that he would recover and be able to find his own way to safety. If the koala was still there in the morning the officer assured me that they would rescue him then.
Later that day I passed the tree again, but my little friend was still there. I prayed for his safety, and left him in the hands of the One who said that not a sparrow falls to the ground without the Father knowing [and caring]. Imagine my joy the next morning when there was no koala to be seen!
Here's another pic of Kelvin (my name for him), on a happier day at home in our tree.
