Every time you think you’re done with cute animals on the Internet, someone comes along and changes the rules of the game.

This baby koala, named Imogen, comes to us via the Symbio Wildlife Park in Sydney, Australia, and she is turning one year old this weekend. She seems happy with just some leaves and her stuffed koala friend, but her handlers gave all of us a present with this video.

And if your heart’s not already reduced to a puddle, here’s a picture of Imogen meeting her mom for the first time.

Enjoy her now, mom—she’s going to be a real handful in a few years, when she wants to stay out all night climbing trees and eating eucalyptus with her friends.
