A woman was shocked after finding a furry companion in one of her household appliances. Natasha Prayag had just arrived back at her Streatham home after visiting her partner’s parents – but, unknown to her and her boyfriend, Adam, a cheeky visitor had managed to sneak through the open front door.

After getting bags from the car, the couple turned around and were surprised to see a fox chilling in their hallway. However, upon seeing Natasha and Adam, the animal bolted off inside. Natasha explains that she thinks the small, dark space offered the creature a sense of security.

After taking a few snaps, the 32-year-old tried to tempt him out with some food. She added: ‘You can see it looks quite relaxed from the pictures we took – almost quite happy.

‘We tried to coax him out first by whistling, then banging around a bit but he held steady.

‘I eventually got some food from the fridge – my little one’s pea pasta – put in a Tupperware box and placed it outside to lure him out.

‘After a few minutes he slowly creeped out and towards the pasta that was placed in the garden. However, he smelled the pasta then ran off out the back gate into the street.

‘He stopped, came back, sniffed pasta again then ran off. At this point, we closed the kitchen/garden doors in case he wanted to return.’

A spokesperson from the RSPCA told MailOnline: 'This would definitely be a surprise for anyone to find!

'If anyone finds a wild animal in their home, we recommend keeping a safe distance and to call us or a local wildlife centre for advice.

'Please don't try to remove a wild animal yourself as they can get easily frightened, we recommend leaving it to experts like our team of frontline animal rescuers who are able to safely remove wild animals from situations like this.'
