“I got a surprise when I arrived at the property and saw a badger having a nap,” O’Neil said in a press release. “He had gotten in through the cat flap and had eaten all the cat food before going for a sleep on the cat bed.”
After eating all of the cat’s food and exploring for a bit, the full, sleepy badger passed out, unaware that he was a bit of an unwelcome guest until the family came home and found him — kind of like a real-life "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." O’Neil immediately set about trying to get the badger out of the house, which he was NOT at all a fan of.
“He didn’t seem too happy when I tried to move him but I was able to slide the cat bed round and it was then that the badger noticed the back door was open so he made a run for it,” O’Neil said.
