Managing to find time off from her various acting projects, including her voicing Eleanor in the upcoming Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip, Kaley Cuoco went to Mexico this year to celebrate an important milestone in her life: turning 30.
The Big Bang Theory star went all the way to a Mexican wildlife sanctuary maintained by the Black Jaguar White Tiger foundation.
Kaley let her fans in on the experience with a succession of adorable Instagram pictures showing her playing with the lions and tigers.
The star had this to say about the festivities:
starting off my 30th year with a roar.
surrounded by my best friends and all the lions and tigers I can count.
Although Cuoco was all smiles for her birthday, she has had a very difficult year, splitting up from her tennis star beau Ryan Sweeting.
However, it definitely seems like things are looking up for Kaley:
Today was the best birthday I have ever had ... Thank you for all the love and best wishes … My heart is overwhelmed with joy and complete contentment. There have been a few bumps along the way, but thank you God, nothing I can't handle.
Cuoco, who is quite the animal lover, also said that her dogs have been instrumental in helping her through such a tough year.
Here's to an amazing decade, Kaley!
