If your Instagram feed is being filled with selfies and pics of not-so-appetising food, there’s a simple solution — follow more Instagram pets! Some people have incredibly photogenic and unbelievably adorable pets, and we aren’t just talking about cats and dogs. Get following!
1. Doug The Pug
It’s hard to find a cooler canine than Doug The Pug. He hits up music festivals, rocks amazing costumes such as Harry Potter and Spiderpug, and has many famous friends like Joe Jonas. Having dubbed himself the “King of Pop Culture,” the pug has his own book which was a New York Times bestseller.
2. Lil Bub
Bub is a magical one-of a kind cat. The wide-eyed kitty was born with an array of genetic abnormalities, such as a case of dwarfism and a lack of teeth, which makes her tongue constantly visible. Despite her physical challenges, Bub is a healthy and cute feline with a positive attitude.
3. Mr. Bagel the Chinchilla
Mr. Bagel is a fluffy white chinchilla from southern California with an obsession for tiny hats and furniture, grocery shopping and sprinting up the stairs. Looking at his big ears, and super silky fur on your Instagram feed would definitely cheer you up any day.
4. Pumpkin the Raccoon
This Bahamian raccoon was rescued when she was just a baby. Pumpkin the Raccoon grew up thinking she was a dog, thanks to her best friends, Toffee and Oreo, and she even has her own coffee table book.
Juniper is a sassy domestic fox who isn’t afraid to show her emotions. She’s happiest when spending time with her canine BFF, Moose. She likes belly rubs and chin scratches, and considers socks to be snacks.
6. Exempel The Bunny
This mini lop rabbit is definitely one of the fluffiest pets to follow on Instagram. Exempel loves to hop around to music and give high-fives for treats, and is fascinated by bubbles (who isn’t).
Venus the “Two Face Cat” has gained plenty of attention since she came on to Instagram a few years back, thanks to her unusual half-black, half-orange face split right down the center. With one green eye and one blue, the famous feline knows how to work her striking angles for a close-up — and she does it well.
8. Lil Pickles
This little fawn pug princess is from Toronto, Canada, and loves cheese more than anything. When she isn’t nibbling on her favourite treat, you can find her dressing up or playing with her toys on her Instagram feed.
9. Diddy & Yeti Kong
Diddy and Yeti Kong are a seriously entertaining and tiny monkey duo. Diddy is a common Marmoset while his younger sibling Yeti, is a hybrid Marmoset. The pair never fails to impress us with their cuteness.
Lionel the hedgehog has definitely won our hearts. This spiky little guy loves to celebrate Tongue Out Tuesday (yes that’s a thing) and is an excellent selfie poser whether he’s curled up in his owner’s hand or lounging in a tiny water floater. See below for proof:
