"We have many wallabies that live around our house but this was the first time one wandered inside!" she wrote online.

"It was really sweet to see her there but I was worried she was going to poop so just wanted to usher her back outside without freaking her out."

"We've known this wallaby since she was a joey in her mum's pouch and her name is baby," she added.
