A cheeky seal roamed around a family's home for three hours after it managed to break in through the doggy door.

Phil Ross's family in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand, were stunned to see the adorable intruder who'd waddled 150metres up from the shore into their hallway on Wednesday morning.

The fur seal had gone through two pet doors to get inside the house and after terrorising the family's cat and checking out the spare room, it jumped up onto a couch in the living room.

Mr Ross, a marine biologist, was the only member of the family not home at the time of the encounter, and joked he had 'missed my time to shine'.

'The big joke is that this is really the only family emergency where it would be useful to have a marine biologist in the house,' he told The Guardian.

His wife Jenn had gone to the gym around 6am on Wednesday, and heard a barking sound near her car but didn't think much of it.

However, upon walking through the door about an hour later, she was met by the little seal in the hallway.

'It got a bit of a fright and humped its way down the hallway into the spare room,' Mr Ross said.

The marine biologist said he thought the seal had likely been inside the house while his wife was away after meeting the family cat, Coco.

'The cat would have gone to defend its territory and obviously the seal wasn't as intimidated as some dogs are, so Coco must have bolted around the side of the house, into the catflap, and the seal must have followed her,' he said.

Without the Heroic WWII Frogmen There Would Be No Navy SEALs .
At 9 a.m. on June 14, eight days after the Normandy invasion, Lieutenant Commander Draper Kauffman and his team of frogmen motored in four landing craft toward the calm, turquoise, saltwater lagoon of Saipan. The men wore swimming trunks and were covered from head to toe in blue paint to provide camouflage in Saipan’s lagoon. Some wore knee pads and baby blue canvas shoes for crawling over the sharp coral reef. Lashed to their belts were sheave knives, as well as small charges of rubber-cased explosives for detonating mines.
