Few things are cuter than puppies and kittens -- few including the raccoon -- DOING HUMAN THINGS.

Introducing Melanie from Great Britain, famous on Instagram (she has 21, 000 loyal followers) for doing regular, mundane acts like riding a bike or eating porridge -- her account has fast become the go-to place for afternoon LOLs.

Not only is her fashion on point -- she showcases some of the best bowties, trench coats and neck scarfs on the ‘gram -- she also isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty helping her owner, affectionately known as “mum” with regular chores like vacuuming and ensuring toilet paper thickness is just right.
