The story is eerily similar to that of Goldilocks: a curious cutie breaks into someone's house, eats their food, then takes a nap.
The difference here: the intruder is a pine marten.
What's a pine marten? While pine martens don't have the cascading curls of a certain blonde, the adorable creatures are a cousin of the weasel with the face of a miniature bear (in our opinion).

You're looking at one of the most hated people on the Internet right now.
On Tuesday morning, a Minnesota dentist named Walter Palmer woke up a relative unknown – until it came to light that he had killed one of Zimbabwe's most beloved lions, Cecil. The animal was allegedly illegally lured from the Hwange National Park in July and killed by Palmer's gun. (In a statement, Palmer said that to his knowledge, everything about his hunt had been legal.)
Throughout the Twitterverse and beyond, his name evoked wrath – from celebrities to animal lovers and beyond. As the news spread, Palmer, 55, spoke with regret for "my pursuit of an activity I love and practice responsibly and legally resulted in the taking of this lion."
Palmer said he "relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt." The Associated Press reported that two Zimbabweans, Theo Bronkhorst and Honest Trymore Ndlovu, were arrested for illegally hunting a lion and appeared in court on Wednesday.
But who is Walter Palmer? Here's what we know.
