We are guilty of going on Instagram to make a post, only to find an hour has passed and we’re all caught up with cats on Instagram. In our opinion, cat pictures are one of the best ways to get a good laugh, to cheer us up, or to get great ideas. We may be a little biased, but Grumpy Cat IS one of the most famous felines on the planet! Here are some of our favorite cats of social media.
Ok, we have to start with some of the best cat memes. We mentioned Grumpy Cat, her real name is Tardar Sauce, and she has made Monday’s funny again. Her best quote is arguable “I had fun once, it was awful.” Her not-so-sweet face has nothing to do with her sweet disposition; she has an underbite and feline dwarfism. Gives you a different perspective the next time you see a grumpy looking postal worker…
LOL Cats is one of the best sources of purely cat memes. Kittens sleeping on beds made of napkins, kittens in bow ties, the cuteness never ends.
Famous Cats on Instagram
The namesake account, Cats of Instagram, has 9.3 million followers. That’s 2 million more than residents in New York City. We love watching the unsuspecting humans getting outsmarted by their feline companions.
Nala the cat was a shelter rescue, who now has 3.6 million followers. She’s pretty darn cute and curious, and really knows how to rock some spectacles and can stick out her tongue better than most teenagers.
Hamilton the Hipster Cat even comes with his own very cool handlebar mustache, in addition to his 800,000 followers. Once a feral kitty, his owners use his social media fame to bring awareness to rescues, #adoptdontshop.
Cats That Made it Big on YouTube
Keyboard Cat has to be the penultimate YouTube cat-sation with over 51 million views (that’s more than the population of Canada). The video wasn’t even uploaded until 10 years after Fatso had passed. The musical stylings of this famous feline show you that even a critter with claws can tickle the ivories.
Nyan Cat isn’t a real cat, but a cartoony pixelated cat head on a Pop Tart body. There’s quite a lengthy history on Nyan Cat, whose likeness was actually based on a real cat.
