Meet Abigail, the kangaroo who loves to hug the woman who rescued her. When Abigail arrived at the Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs, she was just a 5-month-old baby. Fast forward 10 years and she has unofficially become ‘hugging ambassador of the sanctuary’.
But this isn’t an isolated instance, animals never forget any kindness you show them. Histories are replete with such anecdotes, remember the lion who recognized his humans?

This brings back memories of the summer of 2015 when a photograph of a woman embracing a kangaroo after the devastating Australian bush fires went viral.
We hope this cuddling ritual goes on for the decades to come. This world, for sure, can do better with more hugs!
