With millions of loyal fans, these furry little ones have amassed some extraordinary international attention. So we’ve rounded up 10 of the world’s most famous animals that are “pawsibly” some of the cutest things you’ll see all day!
1. Jiff Pom
Jiff Pom isn’t just an Internet celebrity, but he’s also a talented movie actor and model. You may have seen the acclaimed Pomeranian make a guest appearance in Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” music video, on the Disney Channel or in commercials.
It’s a bittersweet moment when it hits you that your best 4-legged friend is getting older.
But you don’t have to sit by helplessly as aging takes its toll. Discover the single nutrient that can help bring out the tail-wagging or purring “”youngster”” in your pet again.
Jiff Pom has even been inducted into Guinness World Records for impressively completing the fastest 10-meter run on hind legs and the fastest 5-meter run on front paws. Check out how Jiff Pom won the renowned title of “The Fastest Dog on Two Paws” in the video below. You’ll surely give him a round of “appaws!”
2. Nala Cat
Nala Cat is arguably the most adorable kitten online. Her loving owner initially started her Instagram account as a way to share her life and stories with family and loved ones back home at the shelter she was adopted from.
Now the account has over 3 million devoted followers who turn to Nala for their daily dose of cuteness. To learn more about Nala’s story, check out the video below.
3. Digby and Aloysius Van Winkle
My personal favorites, Digby and Aloysius Van Winkle are a pair of witty, well-seasoned brothers living in Wellington, New Zealand.
These two love travelling, dressing up and will never cease to make you laugh. Digby has even earned the well-deserved title of Instagram’s Coolest Dog.
4. Hamlet the Pig
Hamlet is an endearing female micro pig living the dream in Los Angeles, California with a heartwarming story to tell. Hamlet’s owner, Melanie, was diagnosed with epilepsy in college, and her husband (who’s allergic to dogs and cats) wanted her to have a companion.
Melanie says that Hamlet saved her. She hopes Hamlet’s photos bring the world as much joy and bliss as Hamlet’s brought into her life.
5. Pumpkin the Raccoon
When you think of raccoons, you probably imagine a wild nuisance sifting through trash cans late at night in a dark alley somewhere. Well, don’t let your preconceptions fool you! Pumpkin is a rescued raccoon who thinks she’s a dog.
She lives in the Bahamas with her doggy siblings, Toffee and Oreo. Pumpkin enjoys playtime, snuggling with the pups and munching on watermelon.
6. Lil BUB
Lil BUB is a feline sensation – she’s a published author, talk show host and movie star.
Despite being born with many “deformities,” BUB is a happy cat who doesn’t let her defects prevent her from living life to the fullest every day.
7. Doug the Pug
With more than seven million fans across his social media platforms, Doug the Pug is proclaimed the king of pop culture – check out his New York Times Bestseller Doug the Pug: The King of Pop Culture.
Doug is friends with A-list celebrities (think: Justin Bieber, John Legend and Ed Sheeran) and even made a guest appearance in a Fall Out Boy music video. It’s only a matter of time before the “paparazzi” are on his tail!
8. Mr. Bagel the Chinchilla
Not your typical pet, Mr. Bagel has used his Internet stardom (and cuteness) as a platform to campaign against fur clothing. I mean, just look at those soulful eyes – how could you not sympathize with him?
When he’s not working, Mr. Bagel enjoys napping, snacking and watching TV with his loyal owner.
9. Marnie The Dog
Marnie the Dog is so famous she even has her own Wikipedia page. The Shih Tzu was placed in an animal shelter after living on the streets in Connecticut. Shortly after, she was adopted and transferred to New York City.
Due to suffering from vestibular disease, Marnie wasn’t expected to live much longer, but with a little love from her devoted owner, she’s now 15-year-old!
Always on another adventure, Marnie truly lives each day like it’s her last.
10. Garfi the Angry Cat
Garfi the Persian cat is living proof you can’t judge a book by it’s cover! That’s right – he may look like a mega-evil scheming villain, but Garfi is actually a super gentle, loving feline despite his ferocious appearance.
Garfi, who lives in Turkey with his big family (including other cat siblings), is so popular that he even has his own merchandise.
