Two hippo stories.
I received this as a forwarded email, so I’m keeping personal details unpublished but will pass the email details of anyone genuinely interested along to the original author, who has to move overseas and cannot take them along. Cookie and Coco are just 3 years old and deeply attached to each other, so they desperately want to place them together. They are also accustomed to small children.
If you’re in the bushfire zone looking for something to do to help and you’ve already donated to the Red Cross and the CFA, your local wildlife rescue service could probably do with a hand – ring them and ask them if they need some eucalyptus leaves from your garden trees, or some help filling water containers in the shelters, or just a cash donation.
