While one of Ripa's furry pets sweetly laid in its bed, the other was captured on the floor, looking towards the camera. The post is presumed to have been taken in the actress' $27 million Manhattan home.

Ripa's recent post comes after a long absence from social media and hosting duties on the ABC daytime talk show "Live! With Kelly & Ryan," which she co-hosts alongside Ryan Seacrest.

Amid the pandemic last year, the duo continued hosting their show from home. Adorably, all of Ripa's three kids with her husband Mark Consuelos made cameo appearances.
