This is Bettina, an orphaned brushtail possum joey.

Taronga Zoo

And this is her favourite kangaroo toy, EVER.

She was brought to Taronga Wildlife Hospital in Sydney last month after she was found alone and dehydrated.

Taronga Wildlife Hospital says she's made a remarkable recovery, "is feeding really well," and "is quite a vocal little thing."

Baby Bettina clings onto her kangaroo while feeding and sleeping because she loves it. 😭😭😭

But also because the soft toy gives her something to cuddle for comfort, like she would do with a mother in the wild.

Just look at her LITTLE HANDS.

And how she admires this leaf like an ANGEL.
