This Baby Wombat Is All of Us After Surgery

Rescued baby wombat, Frankie, just underwent an intense surgery that saved her foot and front leg.

If you've ever had surgery, you know the super uncomfortable feeling that comes afterward.

Feeling totally drained is inevitable, and it's safe to say you probably want to do nothing but snuggle and sleep until you start feeling better. In fact, in your post-surgery stupor, you've most likely mimicked the behavior of this adorable baby wombat — with the exception of nibbling your toes, we hope!

Nicknamed Frankie, this sleepy wombat joey just came out of an intense surgery that saved her foot and other front leg. She was attacked by another animal in the wild, but luckily she was rescued by the Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary — a self-funded volunteer organization in New South Wales, Australia — that is dedicated to rescuing and caring for injured or orphaned wombats until they can be safely released into the wild once again.
