Yes, Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez have over 150 million followers on Instagram, and that is great for them. But, personally, we would prefer to see precious animals way more on our feed than celebrities. 

Why not fill your news feed with adorable animals across the world? 

Pets spark joy for their owners, strangers and even other animals every single day. 

These animals’ Instagram accounts make us smile daily and hope they spark a little joy in your life too. 

Below are the 16 best animals to start following on Instagram right now. 

Mr. Pokee

Mr. Pokee is a tiny little hedgehog that goes on grand adventures with his kitty sister, Audrey. 

From the Eiffel Tower to Austrian mountain tops, these two cover a lot of ground together. Plus, it’s hard to find something cuter than a smiling hedgehog. We want to squeeze you even though we know you are rather spikey!

Real Diddy Kong 

Did you grow up playing Donkey Kong? 

If so, you are going to want to give these monkeys a follow. Diddy and Yeti Kong are cute little monkeys that get into trouble in Miami, Florida. 

They like açaí bowls, bath time, hanging out and, of course, monkeying around. This duo looks like a handful, but they sure are cute. 

Black Jaguar White Tiger

Big cats are pretty neat. And the felines on this Instagram are all rescued from the wild and now live in Mexico. 

The Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation works towards ending animal cruelty and actively tries to rescue as many animals as they can. 

They have rescued over 400 big felines and 300 other animals working towards a legal reform in Mexico to start selling animals and give them the happy and safe life they deserve. 

Venus Two Face Cat 

Venus is the most purrfectly symmetrical cat we’ve ever seen. 

We are mesmerized by your beauty. You can find Venus playing with her siblings throughout the day. She has 3 cat siblings and one dog sister. She is never bored. 

Hopefully, she doesn’t have a split personality! 

Moochi the Mini Cow 

You can’t help but smile when you see Moochi. Moochi is a miniature Scottish Highland White Park mix with extra fluff. 

This cow has so much character we would love to hang out with him for a day. Moochi lives in California with 3 horses and a whole lot of chickens. 

Moochi eats lots of hay and occasionally some twigs and branches, as most cows do. 

Blizzard and Lulu

Blizzard and Lulu are a duo that undoubtedly turn some heads when you pass them in Washington. 

They are outdoor adventurers. You can find them kayaking, playing in the snow, hiking throughout the year. But, rest assured, these two take a lot of naps! 

And when Lulu gets tired you might see her riding Blizzard. 

Pumpkin the Raccoon 

So apparently domesticated raccoons are a thing. And Pumpkin was as adorable as they come. 

Pumpkin actually passed away a few months ago, but this rescued Bahamian raccoon lived a great full life. She loved to try new foods, play with her sibling rescue pups and lounge on the couch.  

She was loved by so many, Pumpkin; you are missed dearly. 

Boysie the Beardie

Boysie is a Bearded Collie hails from Bergen, Norway, and boy does he live a picturesque dream life! 

You can catch his hair blowing in the wind all across the country. 

He is quite possibly one of the most photogenic dogs on Instagram, in our opinion. 

He has his tongue out in 90% of his photos and is truly living his best life. 

Bunny Melv

Melvin and Bianca are two fluffy bunnies hopping along in Sweden. 

They look so much like stuffed animals. It’s hard to believe they are real pets! They are cage-free bunnies and their owners swear they are litter trained. 

Follow along to watch them explore in the snow, navigate cardboard mazes and snack on some watermelon.


Do you remember Boo

Jiffpom is Boo, Jr. Cute and is as cute as a button. He’s up for anything and probably weighs at most 7 pounds.

This tiny Pomeranian can do handstands, ride skateboards and fit in your purse. 

The miniature dog also has almost 10 million followers, which probably makes him a pet influencer. 

Not to mention, he’s well known in Hollywood. He’s been in a Katy Perry music video and a Covergirl commercial. 

What’s not to love?

Prissy Pig

Real-life Miss Piggy has found her pig soul mate. 

Prissy and Pop, the pigs, are very pink and always up to something. 

Most of the time they are dressed in some sort of costume and appear to be unphased. They also frequent the classroom where their mom teaches. 

We can’t think of better classroom pets!

Henry the Colorado Dog

This dog and cat combo are so photogenic it was hard to narrow it down to what post to feature. 

They are continually exploring and the Colorado landscape, which makes for some pretty amazing backdrops. 

Henry, the dog, and Baloo, the cat, are always along for the ride. 

From canoeing to hanging in the hammock, these two are inseparable. 

Baloo even rides on Henry’s back from time to time and you can always find them snuggled together at nap time.  

Goats of Anarchy

Goats of Anarchy is a sanctuary for goats with special needs. 

There are nonprofit who helps baby goats live a long and healthy life. They give all their goats extra attention and even help some of them get prosthetic limbs. 

The work this nonprofit does is pretty amazing and we think they deserve all the follows in the world.  

Hamilton the Hipster Cat 

The mustache says it all. Hamilton, you are the definition of a hipster cat. 

This hip kitty lives in San Francisco, go figure. 

Hamilton is a fluff ball and like all cats, he embraces lounge time like the best of them. 

Teddy the Shetland 

Teddy lives in the UK and has been melting hearts since 2015. 

He’s full of spunk. Whatever he does is cute. Whether he is swimming, rolling around in the snow or posing for the camera it’s adorable. 

We want to spend a day hanging with Teddy. 

Adventures with Walt & Rufuss The Doodle

Last but not least is Walter and Rufuss. Full disclosure, Walter are Rufuss are some of the many dogs of ChatterSource.  

Walter’s been told countless times he looks like a human in a dog suit. He loves attention and is not afraid to embrace it from anyone willing to give it to him. He might be the easiest dog in the world to steal. 

Rufuss is a fellow Goldendoodle and is as cute as they come. Just check out those little paws!

Now you have some following to do on Instagram.
