The squirrel cat is right here

By 12/01/2022Cat, Pet

For most of us, autumn is the season of pumpkins, hot beverages, warm sweaters, and watching squirrels merrily playing in the leaves. So obviously when we heard that there’s a cat out there with a tail like a squirrel’s, we were overjoyed.

Meet Bell, a truly majestic cat with a tail so fluffy you probably wish you could touch to see how soft it is. Bell’s owner keeps other pets as well, so she is always surrounded by furry friends, whether they’re feline or canine.

Bell’s owner ricorico_rico has more than 153,000 people following the antics of their pets on Instagram. Not going to lie, folks, Bell’s friends are just as adorable, too. And the videos of them all playing around together made us smile.

Currently, Bell is 3 years old and will turn 4 next May. She is a Minuet (aka the Napoleon cat), which is a mix of Persians and Munchkins (that’s right, there’s a feline breed called that). Or, to put it meowthematically, Persians x Munchkins = the Cat Emperor of France.

.

Napoleon cats are incredibly healthy: they have very few health-related problems. That’s mostly because Minuets were bred to avoid the various health defects that Persian cats have, such as the excessive formation of tears, the blockage of tear ducts, flattened faces, as well as fur coats that tended towards matting.
