In this ridiculously cute video, New Zealand resident Annette Swoffer comes home to find an unexpected visitor asleep on her couch: a baby seal.
"I thought 'I'm hallucinating, this is just wrong,'" Swoffer told the New Zealand Herald. "Then it looks at me with those huge brown eyes. It was so cute."
The baby fur seal, nicknamed "Lucky," reportedly wandered in from the bay waterfront, through a residential area, across several busy roads, into the house through a cat door and finally up a flight of stairs before coming to rest on Swoffer's couch.
New Zealand Department of ConservationAfter finding the baby seal, Swoffer put in a call to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). "They were giggling away and I'm saying 'I'm not drunk, I'm not lying, there's a seal in my house,' " Swoffer said. After she had convinced SPCA officials of the authenticity of her story, the group contacted the Department of Conservation. Biodiversity program manager Chris Clark told Swoffer he'd been looking for the missing seal pup all afternoon after it had stumbled into a private garden, apparently startling some of the home's elderly residents.Read More »from Baby seal takes a nap on a couch
