Step aside human celebrity influencers because the hottest Instagram cat accounts and hashtags are about to give you a serious run for your money, fur real. From globe-trotting feline nomads to those spreading messages aimed to inspire and empower, there’s a cat account out there just waiting to be followed. 

And if you’re in need of a laugh or a daily dose of cuteness? We’ve got you covered there too, with hashtags that will quickly turn even the deepest frown upside down.


We’re completely head over heels in love with this little intrepid traveler. When she’s not living her best life at her home base in the Canadian Rocky Meowntains, this outgoing three-year old Bengal enjoys basking on the beaches of Mexico, chasing autumn leaves in Slovenia, and soaking up the culture from some of Italy’s most epic lookout locations. 

An avid hiker, water baby and snow lover, Suki is single and ready to mingle. But if you think you have the perfect four-legged Mr Darcy for this free-spirited feline you better get in quick because with 1.9 million followers, we reckon she’ll be paw-tnered up pretty quickly.

Dubbed the world’s most photogenic cat in 2016, this Netherlands-based British Longhair is one pretty kitty. With her gorgeous green eyes and cream and caramel coat, Smoothie bares a striking resemblance to the movie character Puss in Boots. 

While you might expect this photogenic poser with well over two million followers to have let all the attention go to her head, it turns out she’s more darling than diva with cuddles topping the list of her most favorite things.

If food, cats and laughter sound like a trifecta made in heaven, then this account that features cats superimposed onto food is bound to make you laugh out loud. And do you know what’s even better? You can request your cat be digitally-repurposed to sit atop your favourite foodstuff too.

Even if you’re not keen on seeing little Wilbur looking up at you from atop a plate of waffles, it’s still a hoot waiting to see what this crew will come up with next.
