20 Animals Who Visited People’s Homes And Stole Their Hearts

If you’re ever in need of a quick pick-me-up, you might want to consider moving to wherever any of these folks live. After all, it seems that in some places in the world, you can’t move without running into some adorable animal or cute critter. And when they show up at your home? Well, it’ll absolutely make your day.

Recognize this little cutie? Unless you’re Australian, you might not know that it’s called a quokka, and it’s basically the most adorable thing we’ve ever seen. It’s no wonder that this family were more than happy to have it join them for breakfast.

Imagine walking out of your house to find something as sweet as this sat in front of you. We’re pretty sure this is what it’s really like to live in paradise. Interestingly, fawns such as this one are often left in safe places while mom gathers food, so whoever lives here must have felt honored that this lil’ fella picked their home.

This adorable bundle of fur was discovered on a doorstep one May morning in 2014. We can’t think of a better way to start the day, to be honest. Sure, raccoons aren’t always the most hygienic of creatures, but does it really matter when they’re this cute?

This curious fox didn’t just steal the hearts of the people whose home it visited; it also attempted to scram with their dog’s ball. Somehow, though, we don’t think they’ll have minded much, and nor will they have cared about being woken up at 1:00 a.m. After all, you can’t stay angry at something as delightful as this.

When the people who lived at this house kept hearing their doorbell ring, they presumed it was just some kids playing a prank. Until they took a closer look, that is. Then they found this little critter just trying to politely say hello. If this was us, we’d definitely have invited it in for lunch.

Certain animals don’t just come to say hello. No, some, like this raccoon, just make themselves at home. And when they’re as cute as this portly guy, we can’t say we’d be quick to evict them. That chair’s all yours, buddy.

While many people find raccoons or foxes scampering along outside their houses, these folks came home one day to the world’s happiest sea lion pup on their doorstep. It’s yet another advantage of living near a beach. Excuse us while we go call our realtor…

This is apparently what happens when you leave your car door open for a few minutes in whichever fantastical paradise this vehicle’s owner lives. Seriously, the only things we find on our car floor are mud and the occasional dime. Not fair!

Some animals don’t only show up once to say hello. This guy, for instance, ended up paying regular visits to the backyard of these humans, until eventually he became part of the furniture. Still, we wouldn’t mind; after all, he seems like a pretty laid-back house guest.

Inter-species friendships are the best kind. In fact, we’re at severe risk of being discombobulated from a cuteness overload here. Who’d have thought a cat and a deer would make such an adorable pair? Well, in theory, lots of people, maybe, but in practice, it’s even better.

Moving into a new neighborhood can be scary. So it’s always great when your neighbors come to say hello – which is exactly what these friendly little critters did. We think they’re going to get along in their new home just fine.

Sometimes, animals don’t just rock up outside your home to say hello. For instance, this adorable guy sauntered right on in to a family’s boat and made himself comfortable. Not that they’ll have been complaining, of course. Who would?

Usually, the sight of a massive bear would give most anyone cause for concern. But it’s hard to be scared of this curious creature. After all, it’s clearly just trying to say hello. Or perhaps it’s popping by to borrow a cup of sugar…

This is probably the first time we’ve ever seen a cat actually using beds bought for it rather than just sitting next to them. Clearly, it has taken inspiration from this wonderful deer, who’s even got its own massive pillow. Well, that’s one way to teach your cat to use its bed…

Is this the most adorable little bunny you’ve ever seen? We bet it’s right up there. Apparently, it was seen lounging around near someone’s workplace, although we can’t imagine why, given the massive helping of freshly sliced carrot waiting for it. Yep, no idea.

Even squirrels get hot. So, it’s no wonder that this overheated little critter has collapsed over a bowl of ice. In fact, whoever left the ice out has almost performed a service to the animal kingdom. And in return, Mother Nature has gifted them a visit from an adorable new friend.

According to the poster version of this image, this is a common sight in Arkansas. We’ve already booked our flight. After all, who wouldn’t want to switch on their porch light to be greeted by this sight? You’d have a new friend for life.

This slippery snake apparently just popped up to say hello. Yes, he’s peering through a window here, clearly just desperate to join in with whatever’s going on inside. Everyone needs a friend sometimes, right?

A fox cub in a chicken coop might usually spell disaster for the feathered creatures within. But, as it turns out, all this cute little critter wanted was a place for it to rest its head. In fact, not a single chicken fell fowl (sorry) of its natural predatory instincts.

It turns out that it’s not just birds who like bird feeders. Yes, this hungry little squirrel decided to help itself to as much as it could stomach… before falling asleep right there. It’d probably be annoying if it weren’t so adorable.
