IT’S MAYA’S BIRTHDAY 💝🎉🧁 _ I can’t believe that she’s already 3 years old. Time really flies. I got her when she was 11 weeks old. She was so smol and just looked like a little polar bear, that’s why I named this page Mayapolarbear. My heart melted and I almost died from her cuteness the first time I met her. I’ll protect her at any cost!!! 🥺💕 – . FULL Birthday Video (14:01) on YouTube 💖 Link in bio @mayapolarbear
9. Miss Nell, Gilbert & now Nala too
A cat queen takes shape in the form of Miss Nelly. This ragdoll mix kitty was shy at first, but with the addition of ‘servant’ Gilbert to the family, she began to form her own cat kingdom! The two are often found doing shenanigans on their Instagram account and ‘servant’ Gilbert politely tending to the needs of his fluffy highness. Recently, the queen expanded her ranks with a rescue kitten named Nala. The 3 of them partake in activities throughout the day and you can witness it all on her Instagram account.
10. Henry The Colorado Dog & Baloo
Rescue animals make great companions, and this dog and cat pair are the perfect example. Henry, a Husky, German Shepherd, Boxer, Aussie, and Staffordshire Terrier mix and Baloo, a runt of 8 kittens, have become travel buddies to their humans, Cynthia Bennett and Andre Sibilsky. The pair instantly got attached and love the great outdoors.
Serious financial concerns aside, we’re not smiling, you are smiling. Who are we kidding?! No one can resist a happy smile looking at these absolute cuties.
