Couple comes home from vacation, finds koala now living there

It’s not every day you find an intruder in your home and actually want that stranger to stay. Unless, of course, that intruder is an adorable little koala.

Australian couple Michele Goodman and Viki Haines recently came back from a vacation when they found that they had an uninvited guest over.

“We walked in and saw this lovely, beautiful, fluffy koala sitting in the lounge. It looked exactly like he was watching TV,” Goodman told radio station KOFM. “He was facing the TV, sitting in front of the heater.”

But instead of running away, the marsupial held his ground. He just sat there seemingly waiting for the owners – the real ones – to leave. On their part, Goodman and Haines realised the weather outside was a bit cold, so they didn’t force it to leave immediately.

They instead decided to take a few selfies, just like what anyone else would do.

“We tried to get photos of ourselves with him, but we were a bit scared to get close,” Haines said. “Michele got this photo of herself as we were standing outside and keeping our distance. He’s sitting on the lounge and we’re out in the wind and the cold trying to get a selfie through the window.”

The Hunter Koala Preservation Society arrived 90 minutes later and took the koala back to its natural habitat. No trespassing charges were filed against the marsupial, but we’re pretty sure the couple will post a KEEP OUT sign on the doggie door next time.
