We have a new family member!

Yesterday we welcomed a new member to our family.  Let me introduce you to "Greeny" the Bilby.
I first saw Greeny's adoption photo on Isabella's Instagram feed and immediately it was love at first sight!  After verifying that I would be a suitable adoptive Mum, Isabella carefully packed Greeny into his shipping container and sent him off to his new forever home.
Yesterday morning I heard a faint knock at my front door and opened it to find Greeny sitting there.   
"Hello.  Is this my new forever home?"
 It had been a long journey for Greeny and just as well that Auntie Isabella had told me what food bilbies eat so I had plenty of chocolate and nutella on hand to feed him.  The bananas hadn't held up too well in the heat so I will make Greeny a special banana cake with them instead.
Greeny was very happy to be offered so much food after his long journey.
Happy with a full belly.

Greeny meets Gemma the cat & gets kisses.

Deep in conversation, Gemma fills Greeny in on the house rules.

Greeny gets to know the lions.

Greeny makes friends with Kenya & Kozi

    1. I know that Isabella has recently produced a new batch of bilbies and she will take orders. If you have a look on her instagram feed you can view them all

  2. Thank you so much for making the Bilbies famous, Fiona! I hope the Save The Bilby Fund is as excited as I was to read this!!
