    3. They’re all about family.

    4. Resourceful is their middle name.

    5. They can be a little bit sassy.


    The sass is strong in this one.

    6. Sometimes they just want a hug, like the rest of us, but they also care about nature.

    7. They’re never afraid to accept a helping hand.

    8. They too are affected by bushfires and just want somewhere to live.

    11. They even know the meaning of relax.
