Best friends Henry (the dog) and Baloo (the cat) have a lot in common - they have both been rescued and now enjoy long walks in the great outdoors. What makes them special to their many fans is that they are a dog-and-cat travelling duo.
Their unlikely friendship and hiking trips around the beautiful mountainous landscapes of Colorado have gained the pair a cult social media following.
Hundreds of thousands of people follow their adventures on the photo-sharing platform Instagram.
For owners Cynthia Bennett and Andre Sibilsky, their popularity is surreal.
