What a strange world we live in, where people turn their pets into not only social media personalities but legitimate money-makers! Not that we’re complaining – we’re totally here for it! Check out our Top 5 famous furry four-legged friends to follow.

1. @marniethedog, like, invented insta-famous pets. With 2.1 million followers, her own book and a few famous (human) friends, this 16-year-old rescue Shih Tzu certainly doesn’t stick her tongue out at Instagram fame.


2. @dougthepug is the self-proclaimed ‘King of Pop Culture’, and with a 3.4 million-strong following, we’re inclined to believe him. A star-studded Instagram feed, his own merch and candid snaps of him demolishing pizza after pizza are just some reasons to give him a follow.


3. @juniperfoxx is out to prove that you don’t have to be a cat or a dog to be Insta-famous. Ever wondered what life with pet foxes is like? Follow the adventures of Juniper and her adopted brother, Fig, to find out.


4. @iamlilbub is truly one of a kind. The runt of her litter, this wide-eyed, slightly wonky kitty is living proof that size, strength and the ability to keep your tongue in your mouth are no barrier.


5. @ludwik_guinea_pig is a rescue pet with a difference. A hairless guinea pig with a flair for costumes and inspirational quotes, Ludwik’s posts will brighten your day and have you wondering where his owners find so many tiny sweater vests.
