Meet Rufus, the most spoiled joey in the world.
Now over 4-year-old, Rufus’ life wasn’t always like that. Rescued when he was eight-month-old, the kangaroo ended at the Patch Kangaroo Sanctuary in Boston, South Australia. Fortunately, here he found all the love and comfort he ever needed , in Kym Haywood and her husband Neil – the ones who run the sanctuary. Both the caring couple, and the rescued kangaroo, became extremely attached to each other, so Kym and Neil decided to keep Rufus inside their house. Now, he acts like owns the place, or at least the couch.
Rufus loves to spend his days laying on the comfortable sofa, and to cuddle with his dad. But both Neil and Kym, soon realized the sofa might not be big enough for all of them. In fact Rufus wants it all for himself, and for his dad sometimes. Because from time to time he asks him for some belly rubs, and Neil gladly deliver it.
“When he started doing it we thought it was the cutest thing ever and we could see that Rufus was very different to the others and how much he loved the couch and how safe he felt there,” Kym explained. “He goes into the deepest sleep as he knows he is very safe there and doesn’t mind watching a bit of TV, as well.”
However, the Haywoods don’t even mind there’s no more space for them on the couch. The most important for them is to see Rufus if feeling comfortable and happy!
