Jenna Lyons "Cannot Handle the Cuteness" in Her Adorable Family Photo

The Real Housewife posted the sweetest photo of her son with their family pets, though one of them had been up to no good.

The Real Housewives of New York City’s Jenna Lyons is letting the dogs out, and she’s sharing all the cuteness on Instagram.

How to Watch

The fashionista took to her social media on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, to post a series of photos of her “menace” cat and her coffee-drinking dog, letting RHONY fans into her pet-friendly home. Even her fellow Housewives couldn’t help but comment about Jenna’s furry little friends.

Here’s why we can’t get enough:

Jenna Lyons Shares Family Photo

Jenna began with a cute and cuddly photo of her young, orange tabby, and it seems the kitty likes a little drama (unlike Jenna). The series of pics included an overturned and broken flowerpot, with soil spilled all over the floor.

The cat, seen sleeping in the photo, didn’t appear to mind.

“This is what a menace looks like,” Jenna’s caption began. “After he annihilated this plant, he knocked over the vase next to my bed with flowers, and yes, disgusting flower water, on my head at 5:00 a.m. ’cause that’s party time to him.”

Jessel Taank chimed in, commenting, “Things that cats and my twins have in common,” adding an emoji of a smiling face with tears. Erin Lichy also commented with the same emoji.

Jenna went on to write about how the orange cat came into the family, and it turns out he was once a stray from the Lower East Side.

“Everyone is asking about the cat — kitten, really,” wrote Jenna. “He was abandoned outside a deli on the LES. We brought him home and cleaned him up, took him to the vet, and he has taken up residence.”

Jenna included eye-roll and heart emojis after stating, “It was way cuter when he was small.”

Jenna also posted a couple of video clips of the cat to her Instagram Stories. First, Jenna showed the cat purring “like a jet engine” while it cleaned itself in Jenna’s bathroom sink. In another clip, the kitty finds calm by watching the faucet’s running water.

“He’s everywhere,” Jenna said. “Everywhere I am is the cat.”

Opposite the cat’s vase-breaking antics, Jenna’s dog seems a bit tamer, as she alluded to in a follow-up series of photos on Instagram. The mini pup — introduced in the RHONY Season 14 premiere as “Popeye” — looked all ears on Jenna’s living red room couch.

“THIS is what an angel looks like,” Jenna captioned after her cat-related posts. “Except he begs for food, which is totally my fault, and he drinks my coffee, but LOOK AT HIM.”

At the height of RHONY’s CheeseGate debacle, Jenna and friends tried feeding Popeye cheese at Jenna’s intimate get-together. There, Popeye became “excited” about the cheese fondue and curious about Ubah Hassan’s lemongrass and ginger drink

Of course, it isn’t the first time Jenna posted about Popeye. In January 2021, Popeye took Britain by storm when “posing” with Jenna for Elle UK. In February 2021, Jenna explained how the pup loves losing his collars “just like his mama.”

In December 2022, Jenna’s teenage son, Beckett, was pictured with Popeye in a post that read: “The family that slays together stays together.”

In a final Instagram post in her recent series, Jenna published a darling photo of Beckett comfortably slouching (possibly napping) on the sofa with the pets. All was cozy with the teenager, who wore a white t-shirt and dark gray sweatpants.

The cat was curled and sleeping at Beckett’s side as Popeye rested on his lap in a no-pull dog harness.

“And then there’s this situation which I cannot handle the cuteness,” Jenna captioned.

Neither can we.
