I thought it would be fun to share some of the pet instagram accounts you follow. I’m a total nerd and probably 75% of the accounts I follow are either pets or other animal accounts. One in particular who’s very photogenic is this guy, Kirk the cat in Edinburgh Scotland. He’s a blue British shorthair with intense copper eyes. So who do you follow?
I don’t follow any pet Instagram accounts but do on X (ex Twitter). One favourite is Uncle Ralph
His owner posts a video of him, most days, getting a treat - amazing the variety of treats. Sadly he had one of his legs amputated a few months ago but it hasn’t stopped him.
There’s also a cat called Tiggy who sometimes makes an appearance!
I also dip in and out of Olive and Mabel on YouTube. Here’s one example:
I had to stop following pet accounts because there were a few occasions where I followed accounts (Pot Roast, Annie the Cat and Tater Tot RIP) and the pet sadly passed away. It was a bit too emotional for me!
I do check in on a few accounts from time to time!
One of my faves, and a dog i knew from photographing him with his Mom passed away a few month’s ago, and it really left a hole in my heart. I miss seeing his posts , but occasionally she posts on his acount mostly about his human baby sister and how she has some of his habits.
Oh and one of my hometown absolute faves, Coconut Rice Bear. I met her with her parents at of all things Norcal Corgi Con a few years back, I guess she was a Corgi wannabe anyway, I started following her adventures soon after. Her Dad is very creative with her posts and she’s quite the charming advocate.
