A homeowner and his family were forced to flee when the enormous cat simply walked in the front door.
The incident, which occurred in the Indian state of Assam, followed a period of heavy flooding that killed dozens of animals at Kaziranga National Park while enabling several others to escape.

According to reports, the female tiger had been spotted near a highway before jumping over the wall of a scrap garage, entering the building and laying down to sleep on the owner's bed.

Fortunately animal handlers from the Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) were able to cordon off the area so that when the big cat finally awoke, she was able to safely leave the premises.

"She was very exhausted and had a nice day-long nap," said Rathin Barman who lead the operation.

So now we know what tigers would do, if they had houses, with beds in them. Exactly the same we do!

Cats can analytically determine the purrfect place to sleep that will cause the most inconvenience. Hmmm ... there is no way one can talk about cats without coming off as somewhat nuts.

Was it a king size bed? Did the cat snore? Who was the brave soul who informed the tiger that it was time to get up.†
