If you live in or around any wooded area, chances are that you have had your fair share of run-ins with deer.

They roam in herds all over the country. In some regions, they can be hazardous to your vegetable garden. Some people even consider them pests.

However, the sight of a baby deer will melt even the coldest of hearts and make any angry gardener forget about all the bad-deer behavior they’ve experienced.

After all, if you’ve seen Bambi, or are acquainted with this baby deer who uses a family’s pool to cool down, you probably have a soft spot for these pretty woodland creatures.

The reality is, a spotted fawn is one of the cutest critters around. But what’s sweeter than a baby deer? Three!

That’s exactly what one woman discovered in her living room, after leaving her back door open while battening down the hatches for an oncoming storm.

An Imgur user who goes by Amscolie shared her story after accidentally leaving her back door open as a storm brewed outside.

She went outside to check on the deer she typically cares for, but couldn’t find them anywhere.

Turns out, they may have been one or two steps ahead of her.

Animals have been known to have superior weather-detecting capabilities — far better than humans, according to AccuWeather.

We don’t know exactly how they do it, but they may sense changes in air pressure, or hear sounds at a frequency beyond what human ears are capable of.

That’s why dogs, horses, and birds tend to kick up a fuss before a big thunderstorm or other major weather event; they know something is happening.

Amscolie’s deer are no exception.

Three fawns snuck into her house without her noticing, thanks to the ajar back door.

Humans aren’t the only ones who try to seek shelter from a storm, and these baby deer seem to be wise beyond their years.

While she was out looking to bring them somewhere safe, the deer had already come up with a pretty solid game plan.

Amscolie explains,

I raise orphaned wildlife. Recently, the back door was open as a storm was coming. The deer were nowhere to be found. Went inside, was heading to the front door, only to see them next to an end table in the living room. Told them they could sleep in the house for the night because it was going to be nasty.

Any pet owner or animal mom would be worried if she couldn’t locate her animals before bad weather, but luckily, these deer knew exactly what they needed to do.

It was a happy ending to a scary situation. Instead of worrying that the babies were lost, out in a storm by themselves, they got to snuggle in and have a cozy night away from the bad weather.

According to Amsoclie, deer show their gratitude just like dogs, with lots of exuberant kisses to show their appreciation!

Besides, Amscolie is 100% right when she writes, “But how could you ever say no to a face like this?”

Answer? You simply can’t. These little babies are too cute to turn away!
