The Dogs, Rats and Cats of Insta

8 January 2021

By Sunny H

I love animals -probably an understatement. I have six beautiful cats and a Staffordshire Terrier mix called Buster, so it is quite the mad-house at times. I love Instagram. So you should know what’s about to go down.

This article is dedicated to the animals of Instagram I have grown to love over the years.

Tuna the Chiweenie

Kicking off this much-needed list with one of my all-time favourite dogs of Instagram. The page @tunameltsmyheart has become a sensation over the years. It captured my OWN heart in 2015 when a picture book was published. I received it as a gift from my mother to make light of my own unfortunate underbite. From Southern California castaway to Hollywood heartbreaker, Tuna the Chiweenie is number one in my heart.

Pigs of all sizes

I absolutely love pigs. Baby ones, big ones and all in between. @pigsoninsta is the page you want if you are like-minded. All the pictures you could want of these cuties compiled into one page. (I especially like the ones in raincoats).

Dogs doing their thing

@weratedogs is filled with some of the most heartwarming stories of dogs doing their thing. And I am here for it when we are living in a time of the news being filled with such depressing scenes. A scroll won’t fix the world, but it can definitely bring a warm feeling in your heart for a little while.

Adventuring Cats

 As a cat owner myself, it would be such a dream for them to go on winter adventures. It would be so much fun. However, if I went near them with a lead and a jumper I assume they would run a mile from me. Follow @bodhi_theadventurecat to see her journeys in the mountains!

And finally the rat family

I know rats aren’t for everyone, but they hold a very special place in my heart. This lovely family @scabbeanandalfie are too cute to not have an honourable mention. Rats are very sociable animals, so it is absolutely lovely to see this family of three on my feed as opposed to being alone. 10/10 for these guys!

If you haven’t already, give them a follow, guaranteed to make your feed a better place!
