She has since opened a business, the Wind in Wings Gallery Café, and bought a home on Kangaroo Island's north coast. "I was here for seven years and then thought, 'Hey, I should probably look at committing.' Two days later, the farmer up the road found me on the beach and said, 'Come have a look at my property.' A month later, there I was in a little farmhouse overlooking the ocean," says Kate. Her view: "Beautiful sugar gum trees, spiky yacca grass trees, rolling hills going straight out into the ocean." Kate shares her home with kangaroos, wallabies, several different types of possums, cockatoos, magpies, and any other wild critters in need of rescue or rehabilitation. "I have children," Kate says. "But they either have fur or feathers."
