The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco has adopted a tiny rescue rooster named Mini Cooper and it might just be the cutest thing ever.
Kaley is a renowned animal lover, having worked with horses since she was a teenager, been involved with PETA campaigns, and recently adopting a senior dog named Larry.
The actress has now welcomed a new family member to the roost – an unbelievably tiny rooster named Mini Cooper.
Taking to Instagram stories this weekend, she shared a picture of the adorable bird and wrote: ‘Welcome to your new life Mini Coop!’
Kaley adopted the baby rooster from local animal shelter Lancaster Animal Care Centre and, judging by a post from one of the workers, Mini Cooper will be sorely missed from the centre.
Volunteer Rita Earl Blackwell shared a video of the rooster to her Instagram page, showing him hanging out with staff members, chilling in the office and being cuddled by Kaley after she adopted him, as I’m Coming Out by Diana Ross blared in the background.
Rita wrote: ‘Thank you @kaleycuoco for adopting the teeniest, tiniest little rooster there ever was!’
She said Mini Cooper was ‘adored’ at the shelter ‘and would often spend time in the offices with staff while they worked’.
‘Everyone came out to say goodbye and send him on his way – they even packed up his favorite toy to go home with,’ she wrote.
Rita wished Mini Cooper a ‘happy new life, cherished and adored’ with Kaley and her other pets.
Animal lovers flooded the comments with praise for The Flight Attendant star, with one person writing Mini Cooper was ‘living the Hollywood dream’ and another agreeing ‘he hit the jackpot’.
‘What an incredible story!!’, one added. ‘Rooting for that rooster!!’
Kaley has since been updating her seven million Instagram followers on life with the little rooster as he settles into her home, and yesterday shared a sweet snap of Mini Cooper snuggled into her jacket.
‘Nothing to see here,’ she wrote. ‘Just my baby rooster hanging in my vest. Totally normal.’
Kaley is currently filming season two of her gripping new series The Flight Attendant, and has been sharing some behind-the-scenes snaps with fans.
She recently posted a series of images with comedian Mae Martin, who has been cast as a guest star in the upcoming series following the success of her comedy-drama Feel Good.
