It’s Monday, it’s raining and I feel like there’s not enough hours in my day, wishing I had one day without responsibilities where I could curl up on the sofa and browse Instagram for hours on end. Know that feeling? Well, then you might like this blog series about the world’s most famous pets on Instagram! Next time you need a break from it all, check out these profiles. Also, are you following @madpawsau on Instagram yet?!
In today’s blog I share the five most Instafamous cats I could find. Did you think Grumpy Cat was queen of the Insta crowd? Think again - the most popular kitty I could find has almost three times more followers!
So who are these famous felines? In reverse order, let me introduce to you:
Pudge is a girl who isn’t shy about flaunting her moustache. According to her website “she’s a regular ol’ lazy cat that doesn’t like any cat treats, catnip or cat toys.” She’s usually lounging in her pictures. But don’t be fooled: she’s secretly very busy! She has a website with Pudge products, and she donates a portion of the proceedings to charity too. Good on ya, Pudge!
4. Roku (via http://instagram.com/rokuhecat)
Flat-eared Roku lives with his kitty wife Hachi, their kids and Italian Greyhound pup Phoenix – oh and two humans. He likes sitting on the couch and laying on a chair. Until his kids or that bouncy pup Phoenix disturb him! Roku has perfected the art of cat napping, and he looks good doing it!!
3. Tadar Sauce (a.k.a. Grumpy Cat) (via http://instagram.com/realgrumpycat)
Even when she recently graced the cover of Lucky Magazine, Tarder Sauce wasn’t impressed. In fact, this fierce feline has a permanent frown on her face and is better known as ‘Grumpy Cat’. The hysterical memes about her never get old, because no matter how bad you feel, she always looks more miserable. But she’s working her frown! With books, coffee, clothes, toys and even apps in her name, she’s raking in the big bucks.
2. Lil Bub (via http://instagram.com/iamlilbub)
Forget about Miley Cyrus, it was Lil Bub who started the whole ‘stick out your tongue’ craze! As a famous member of the Insta-community, Bub has raised over $200,000 for animals in need since 2012. Her adorable face can be found on all sorts of merchandise you can purchase through her website. She’s currently writing a book with Norbert the Dog.
1. Nala (via http://instagram.com/nala_cat)
To top off our list, I present to you: Nala, Instagram’s instant hit. Four years ago, Nala was adopted at just five months old. Since then, her owner Pookie has showered her with love and made her Insta-famous. Nala posts selfies of her life in LA, occasionally showing off her #OOTD. And of course, she too has a merchandise website. Nala donates to three shelters on a monthly basis and posts adoption ads to help the less fortunate cats find a forever home. Could she BE any more loveable?!?
