This baby fur seal snuck through a cat flap into a New Zealand home and snuggled up on the sofa. Awwww who's a good little home invader? Who? Who? Look, he's even got a pillow!

Okay, so the killjoy New Zealand Department of Conservation, which took the above photo, wants you to know that fur seals are actually dangerous and can bite you. Also, the little dude must have had something wrong with him to be wandering around a human neighborhood and sneaking into human houses. (On this point, I disagree. Sitting on couches is fun for man and beast.) But Annette Swoffer, the pup's temporary landlady, said he was "really friendly"! Also, who are you going to believe, some official Department of Conservation or those widdle flippers?
