Sabrina Paige has just about the cutest trio of pets on Instagram, and her avid followers are proof that we all love a good cuddle session among dogs and cats. Located in Washington, D.C, Paige picked up photography as a hobby as she volunteered to photograph adoptable pets at a local animal shelter when she lived in New York City. She received positive and encouraging feedback about her images, and so got more serious about photography. And who better to be models than her adorable brindle dog Skyler, her tabby cat Willie Nelson, and the beautiful grey pit bull Blue. Their cuddle sessions have turned into an Instagram obsession with thousands of people following skylerandsabrina.

Keep that cat well fed and those pit bulls are safe.

I used to have a pit bull, a doberman, and three cats. They all slept together in a pile. We’re down to just one pittie these days and she’s a big baby.

Oh sure, everyone says their cats are safe, but we know they're just bred to kill.

With two buddies like that I’d say he doesn’t have much to fear.

Noticed in most of the pics the cat has at least one eye open. Can’t blame him.
The dogs are merely trying to lull the cat into a relaxed state. Adrenalin toughens the meat. :^)
