Meet Bell the cat
She has a fluffy tail
Just like a squirrel
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.
We’d love to see how soft it is
Bell lives in Japan
Bell is a Minuet cat
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.
Minuet cats are also known as Napoleon cats
They’re bred from Persians and Munchkins
The Minuet breed is known for its amazing coat…
Minuet cats are known for their short legs, round faces, and dense fur coats. An interesting fact is that despite its short legs, a Minuet is able to jump, run, and play just as agilely as any other breed of cat.
…as well as short legs
We’d love to have a cat like Bell in our office
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.
