Meet Bell! She’s a delightful female whose tail is so fluffy that it looks more like a squirrel’s than a cat’s.


Bell is what’s known as a Minuet cat, which is basically a cross between a Munchkin and a Persian breed.


With her squirrel-like bushy tail, short legs and round face, she attracts thousands of fans to her Instagram page.


A Minuet cat is also known as the Napoleon cat.


Napoleon cats are wonderfully healthy little companions. They’ve been specially bred to sidestep many of the health issues common in Persian cats.

Their fur is less prone to matting, making them not just adorable but also low-maintenance and happy pets.


This breed is regarded as one of the cutest cat breeds because of their short legs, fluffy fur, and rounded face.


And of course their bushy, bushy tails.


Minuet is able to jump, run, and play just like any other breed of cat.

However, Bell’s tail is larger than the average minuet cat.


Bell’s owner has more than 230,000 people following Bell and her friends on Instagram.
