If your Instagram feed needs some extra cuteness, look no further.

Sure, you can follow celebs like Ariana Grande or Kim Kardashian, but why not brighten up your feed with some really adorable animals?

Check out some of these top pet influencers on Instagram!

This adorable raccoon got a rough start in life, falling from a tree when she was only 1 month old. But these days, she’s doing just fine and living life to the fullest with her human mom and two rescue dog siblings.


This Chihuahua-dachshund mix certainly has a unique look! His adopted mom fell in love with him, and when she started his Instagram account in 2012, so did everyone else. She now uses Tuna’s popularity to raise money for animal rescue groups.


Jill was given temporary shelter from Hurricane Isaac after she fell from her nest, but needless to say, her human decided to make things a little more permanent! Now, this 7-year-old squirrel is living her best life, and according to her Instagram, she’s a parkour expert.


Supposedly, this Scottish Fold kitty was deemed “ugly” and had trouble finding home as a kitten. These days, this box-loving kitty has plenty of internet friends and was even named a Forbes Top 10 Pet Influencer!
