The koala, a female named Sam, was rescued and is being treated for second-degree burns on her paws. But while in the animal shelter, she met and fell in love with another kola, named Bob, rescued a few days earlier; Reuters reports.

Sam’s tale of pain, survival and romance, has attracted adoring fans worldwide. She’s even got her own Wikipedia and FaceBook pages. You go girl!
