Even though I only jumped on the Instagram bandwagon 6 months ago, it has quickly become my favourite social media channel. Unlike other social media outlets (I’m looking at you, Twitter), Instagram is generally a really nice, positive place to hang out. Comments are always cheerful and positive, and guess what?
Instagram is full of cats!
So many cats!
I probably follow more cats on Instagram than I do human. No, scratch that. I totally follow more cats than humans. I’m not even sure what the total number of cat accounts I follow is, I lost counts months ago.
So, being that I am something of an Instagram cat expert at this point I figured I’d take a moment are share with you (in no particular order) 5 of my favourite Instagram cats.
My Cat Kyle
My Cat Kyle is a very unique cat. He’s got 3 teeth, no claws, severe dandruff, hip dysplasia, and a crooked ear. Also, he witnessed a murder. Which is why he campaigns against domestic violence. See, you can be cute and do good at the same time.
Lil BUB is easily one of the most famous cats on the internet, distinguished by her unique looks and perpetual good mood. She even hosted her own chat show. I especially like that she has her own fund to help special needs pets. Way to go, BUB!
Pompous Albert is a hilarious Selkirk Rex with a serious case of resting bitch face. No really, his face is ALWAYS like that. I dunno why, but something about that glare combined with his coarse curly fur makes him extra intimidating. Or is it just me?
Miss Raspberry Kittay
🎶Summer summer summertime🎶 Miss_Raspberry_Kittay's favorite time of the year…long nights, bbq's, fresh caught fish but most of all…my humans are home with me and it's my Adoptiversary in July!!!🌞🌴🍉 #oliveandryemidsummercontest .. @sophielovestuna @1tidus @misspicklescat you should tell @oliveandrye & @furrebee_sweetcat your favorite thing about summer! .. ..
Miss Raspberry Kittay might at first glance look like yet another Princess Monster Truck lookalike, but something about her extra fluffy fur and her propensity for costumes give her a special place in my heart. You can even get leggings with her glorious face on them!
Last, but certainly not least, Atchoum is part Wookie, part Werewolf, and all cat. He suffers from a rare disorder called hypertrichosis, which basically means that his fur never stops growing. Often mistaken for an unkempt puppy, Atchoum is all kitty. And he’s a Habs fan!
