The fact that having a pet sometimes means spending a lot of time, energy and expenses on their well-being is harsh reality. In return, though, pets give us love, joy and friendship for life. But have you ever imagined that your four-legged friend could become a world star?
If you're tired of your Instagram being full of commercial posts from all kinds of celebrities, athletes or models, try focusing on animal influencers. What, you haven't heard of them yet? That can't be right! You must have seen at least one of them in an advertisement, a music video, or unwittingly stumbled upon their photos in a magazine. We bring you the five most prominent animal stars, whose number of followers puts even Ben Cristova to shame, which is saying a lot.
The first place has long been held by a dog called Jiff Pomm. This furry Pomeranian holds two Guienness world records thanks to its speed on two of its four tiny legs. On social networks, he often poses with various fashion accessories and makes appearances at concerts or other performances of many well-known “human” personalities. You could also see him in Katy Perry's music video for the song Dark Horse.
The second most prominent dog is the pug Doug the Pug, who managed to charm his fans with a great number of posts. Compared to regular mortals, this four-legged cuddler can boast plenty of awards and prizes as well as a huge amount of selfie with famous personalities. His huge puppy eyes could can be seen bulging alongside Shakira, Billie Eilish, Demi Lovato or the boy group Jonas Brothers. Honestly, which of us "ordinary people" get this lucky?
So as not to show favoritism to dogs, let's look into the cat's media world. Nala is undoubtedly its queen. This Siamese cat makes over 4 million fans smile, mainly thanks to its adorable expressions and clothes.
Another favorite you can follow is not a cat or a dog, but a domestic fox called Juniper, located in North America. He lives in his masters' house together with another fox friend Fig and a dog called Moose. The trio playing together was one of the things that helped this cute fox gain so much attention on Instagram.
The world of the Internet doesn't always have to be all about cute and gorgeous animals with an innocent looking expression. Take the dog named Tuna, a chihuahua and dachshund mix, as example. He has his appearance to thank for his stellar career. Tuna' journey to becoming a top influencer, however, was not easy at all. An unknown owner left him by the road near San Diego, he was found by a good person and brought to the farmers' market, where his current owner adopted him. She immediately took a liking to him without knowing that after publishing a few photos on Instagram in 2012, the dog would cause a huge boom. In the Czech Republic, Tuna is known as "Stefan" or "Ftefan" thanks to a Kofola add he starred in.
