A video posted on Facebook by The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, Australia shows Scarlett the kangaroo with her caretaker, Chris Barnes.

While Barnes walks around a kitchen mixing a milk formula for the joey, the young animal hops around, clinging to her caretaker’s leg and looking up at him longingly.

The sanctuary's photo caption is the perfect imagination of what Scarlett would say if she could talk: "But mum! I want my milk now!"

The video has been viewed on Facebook more than 200,000 times.
