This woman’s love for meerkats has become so strong that she now has two with their own wardrobes.

Veterinary student Apollinariya Urzhumova, 25, from Perm, Russia, used to work in a zoo where she came into regular contact with meerkats.

Despite leaving the zoo, she still had a love for meerkats and wanted her own.

Now, Apollinariya has three-year-old Igor and two-year-old Margot.

She loves dressing her two meerkats up in adorable outfits and sharing the pictures with her Instagram followers.

Apollinariya said: “Since my husband and I are big lovers of animals, we decided that it was time for us to get a new member of the family.

“Now we have two meerkats, a female and a male.

“They already became happy parents and have offspring.

“We have been living side by side with them for three years now. For them, we are a complete family.”
