5 Popular Social Media Cats Reveal their Secrets to Success

What self respecting cat wouldn’t want to be famous? Having a luxurious life of being totally spoiled, being admired by famous and cat-mad humans as well as being envied by other cats, the list goes on! Sounds purrfect doesn’t it?

Well to become famous on Instagram or Twitter (or any social media platform you purrfer) is just not something you set yourself out to do – or is it?

Instagram is one of the hottest social media platforms out there. A lot of marketeers say that Instagram is the best place to engage with your audience. That being said there is still fame to be had over on Twitter especially with some well-chosen, cute photos, witty remarks and aggressive self-promotion, which will get you very far!

However, we never said amassing followers and creating new opportunities to be showered with treats was an easy task. On the contrary, doing so requires your human to craft a captivating profile, follow others and engage with followers, and constantly post tweets that are actually worthwhile.

So in order you help you out, we asked five popular and up and coming cats on Instagram and Twitter for the advice they would give to other cats wanting to become a successful social media cat.

  1. Very cool kitties indeed! I have 13K followers on twitter but I don’t spend a lot of time there. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. After reading this I am now frustrated that these cats have more followers than us! 🙂 These are adorable cats and I love that their humans work social media for them. Another crazy aspect of this social media world.

  3. I’ve not heard of any of these cats but they are all pretty cute! I have a hard time keeping up with my own IG and my photography page, I don’t think I would want to manage one for my cat as well but I admire those who do keep up one for their pets.

  4. This is awesome! What a great idea! Of course, cats would get all the traffic! 😀 Now I need to figure out how my dog can help my following. Dogs are cute, too… Right?

  5. Thank you for sharing all those tips. But I think I’ll have a hard time explaining that I learned them from a Cat.

  6. Benny!! That is the most adorable little kitty I’ve ever seen! I loved this post, what is it about cats (even better, famous cats) that just makes you smile and want to get lost in a Instagram post cat vortex! I could seriously scroll videos and pics of kitties all day!

    1. He certainly is cute and we just love his cattitude! 😸

  7. These cats are gorgeous! We are getting a cat soon, and have been struggling to decide what type – Pickley may have just made my mind up for me!

    1. Awww that’s amazing, Pickley will be pleased! 👍

  8. Seeing how cute these cats are, together with the clever shots and use of words – there’s little wonder they are as popular as they are! Love the tips even if I don’t have a cat at the moment, they may come in real handy at some point in the future. In the meanwhile, I can get a lot of enjoyment out of following these accounts.

  9. Such adorable cats! I’m so jellie of their IG following, though. Note to self: “Get a cute cat to manage”

    1. For really long time I have been wanting to get a cat…. anyways I gotta checkout Pickley’s instagram account 😃

  10. I can’t stop staring at Benny. He looks like a stuffed toy, waiting to be cuddled. Look at those eyes? Well, I agree with Scott. IG-wise, they are tough competition.

    1. They are pawsome – and make the best pets!

  11. The internet is quite a magical place! There’s a place for everyone…and every cat!

  12. Every time I put a picture of my cat in my blog or on Instagram, I make the joke that he’ll be famous! Lol. Cat pics and videos are awesome to see, and the stories behind them.

  13. Thank you for sharing the secrets of Instacat Stardom. Panic and Disco are ready for their five minutes of fame 🙂

  14. Benny for me is the cutest cat- influencer! His hair and cattitude are both adorable.
