Tim Beshara’s mother Gillian works for WIRES in New South Wales – earlier this week, she sent him this adorable picture of Doodlebug, a little kangaroo who was abandoned as a newborn.

Beshara told the Daily Mail:

He may have fallen out of his mother’s pouch or his mother may have died. He was a couple of months old when he was passed onto my mother’s wildlife company WIRES.

(Though his initial tweet said Doodlebug was a wallaby, the animal was later confirmed to be a kangaroo.)

Gillian discovered that Doodlebug loved the teddy bears she hung out around the yard, just like a toddler would.

“They treat it as a companion,” Beshara said.

Doodlebug has been nursed back to full health, but occasionally returns to the sanctuary for some food and a cuddle with his teddy bear.

Too, too cute.
