Seriously. That actually happened.

Anywayz, she told a story to Craig Ferguson about how she went to a rescue petting zoo for injured animals while in Australia one day.

She saw an injured kangaroo, and she couldn't do anything other than lay down with it and just spoon away!

Bruce Springsteen might be a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, but deep down inside he's a total softie!!!

The Boss was recently doing a string of shows down under in Australia, and he and E Street Band decided to take a quick break from the action and paid a visit to the Featherdale Wildlife Park!

Well Bruce got a chance to meet some of the furriest critters the park had to offer, and there was a super magical moment he got a chance to cuddle with a wombat named Bumble, and from what we can tell it was love at first sight!!

The legendary rocker definitely looked like he enjoyed his time with his furry friend and cradled the marsupial like a newborn baby!!

In a slightly-less adorable scene, The Boss got a chance to hold onto a snake and almost didn't seem to mind that the reptile was slowly wrapping itself around his neck!

Careful, Bruce!!!

His cat doesn't just seem trained to board… he's super into it!

Sure, there's some video editing but this cat really does do a lot of the tricks!

It must take some real huevos to jump over a Rottweiler!

Our favorite part is the reaction on peoples' faces as the kitty skates by! Ha!
