There's a foxy lady burning up the Internet, and (surprise!) her last name isn't Kardashian.
Rylai, a pet white marble red fox, is fanning a viral forest fire with her cuteness – clocking more than 63,000 followers on Instagram so far.
The young pet – whose name is pronounced Rye-Lie – comes from generations of pet lines, according to her Facebook page, and would never survive in the wild. Her account includes adorable images of her yawns, cuddly naps and yummy meals, but as she grows, she will be more difficult to keep as an indoor pet and may require an outdoor enclosure.

Meet Mrs. T. She pities the fool who doesn't believe in second chances.
This 90-year-old tortoise from Pembroke, West Wales, was recently the victim of a savage rat attack, but now she is back on her feet, or wheels in this case, reports The Telegraph.
Mrs. T lost her front feet during hibernation, when a rat chewed them off, leaving the reptile immobile. Mrs. T's owner, Jude Ryder, rushed the tortoise to the vet as soon she discovered what happened. Doctors stressed to Ryder that the animal need to get moving again to stay alive.

Atchoum the cat now has tens of thousands of Instagram followers, and his owner, Nathalie Côté, had a feeling he'd be an Internet sensation.
Atchoum's rise to fame began with a dare from Côté's kids to post a photo of the unusually hairy Persian kitty on Facebook. The kids thought that no more than 100 people would like the snap, but mom knew he would make a splash.
"Atchoum was so cute!" Côté tells PEOPLE. She received the feline as a gift last July from a coworker at the Quebec veterinary hospital where she works as a groomer. "Differences are beautiful in living things."
Atchoum, who was born with hypertrichosis (a rare condition that causes excess hair), is otherwise healthy, says Côté – but he requires a lot of care, including regular brushing to prevent matting of his hirsute coat.
