Rufus The Rescued Kangaroo Insists On Daily Couch Cuddles With Dad – Dog

This lazy kangaroo was rescued when he was just an eight-month-old joey. Rufus’s adoptive mom, Kym Haywood, runs the Patch Kangaroo Sanctuary in Boston. Even though Rufus is all grown up now, his obsession with the couch hasn’t ended. The kangaroo even has his favorite spot on the couch.

This adorable kangaroo comes through the back door every evening just so he could have a chill-out session on the couch in front of the television. It is no easy task for Kym to get the kangaroo to bed since Rufus loves staying in his favorite position. Every single evening, Rufus would come through the back door so he can chill out on the couch in front of the TV.

Even though the human owners try to bribe him with grapes to get him out of the couch, the clever kangaroo accepts the grapes but flops back down onto the sofa. His owners don’t even fight for space on the couch anymore. They just move further away on the couch as the kangaroo grows. Apparently, that spot is all Rufus’s. When people come over to their house, they tell them that no one can sit in Rufus’s spot since it is reserved for him.

But they don’t mind, they adore Rufus and are happy to let him into their home every day to hang around with them.

“When he started doing it we thought it was the cutest thing ever and we could see that Rufus was very different from the others and how much he loved the couch and how safe he felt there,” says Kim. “He goes into the deepest sleep as he knows he is very safe there and doesn’t mind watching a bit of TV.”

He even watches a bit of television on the couch and falls into a deep sleep on his safe spot. His adoptive mom and dad go along with whatever makes him happy. Rufus does get cranky at times when he doesn’t want the two humans sitting next to him. He then pushes them off the couch very gently.
