Our Favorite Pet Influencers on Social Media
 

Is there such thing as a dog influencer or cat influencer? Well, as it turns out, it isn’t just the Kardashians of the world who are Internet famous. Now, even our furry friends are milking this trend for all it’s worth. Many pet bloggers have followings in the millions, and all this attention is making their owners rich from brand deals, licensing, TV appearances and more. In fact, there are so many interesting pet influencers on Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook, we had a really hard time choosing only 15.  We easily could have 20 dogs alone, but we wanted variety, so we threw in some cats, pigs, reptiles and even a hedgehog for you to follow (only on social media of course – not in real life). Our favorite has to be the lizard with a whopping 350K followers – that’s one cool animal influencer.

1. Grumpy Cat (over 12 million combined followers) cat influencer on social media - Grumpy Cat
 .
Grumpy Cat (real name – “Tardar Sauce”) is arguably the most popular feline on the planet – a meme legend indeed. This cat is immortalized in internet history due to her signature pouty face (which amazingly is how she naturally looks.) Her owner has built upon her huge following with multiple TV appearances, a book deal, and a merchandising empire.  She’s also the ambassador for Friskie’s Pet Food and the star of her very own film on Lifetime – Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever – not too shabby for a cat. (When was the last time your pet was a guest on Good Morning America?) But she hasn’t let stardom go to her head – she still has to poop in the litter box. #TeamGrumpy

Also an animal actor, he was featured in the music video for the 2014 Katy Perry song “Dark Horse,” which has been viewed over 2 billion times on YouTube. He is arguably the biggest dog influencer in the game now. Cuteness is indeed real.

8. MacGyver the Lizard (over 350,000 followers combined)

Our personal favorite – here he is. Everyone, meet MacGyver. And yes, he’s a lizard that is about as big as an average-sized dog. Reptiles are actually more interesting than you think, and MacGyver and his mom are a good example of that. They’ve gained so much popularity on the Internet, that followers constantly submit their own fan art creations of MacGyver. His YouTube page is slowly growing as well, nearing 50,000 subscribers, and all the videos are really quirky and funny. MacGyver is one of the more interesting and unique pet influencers you’ll see today.

pet influencer on social media - quincy patrick barnes

15. Patrick Barnes and Quincy (over 2 million combined followers)

Ahhh. What is a pet without a pet owner? We had to include one profile on this list which explores this special relationship. Meet Patrick and Quincy – you may recognize them from the Vine days with those hilarious videos, but now they’ve focused on other great stuff such as building their YouTube page with new vlogs being posted almost every day. One funny post involved Patrick challenging Quincy to be a good guard dog, so he had his friend dress up as a burglar and pretend to rob his house. Of course, Quincy did nothing to protect his owner or his belongings – too funny.

sweet sidecar dudeRUNNER UP: Sweet Sidecar Dude – OK, so we admit it – the owner of Sweet Sidecar Dude is the brother of Boomopolis’ founder, but a little nepotism never hurt anyone. The dog in question – Mijo. You can find him riding in a sidecar around Venice with his owner, Spencer. Mijo may not have a ton of followers on social media yet, but he certainly draws a big crowd in Venice beach.  You can even rent both the sidecar (and Mijo) for a cool party or photo shoot.

Honorable Mention: We’d like to extend our congratulations to WeRateDogs for recently winning a Shorty Award for the animal category, as it was well-deserved. They’ve done a ton of notable work over the past few months that included a book release, a mobile app, and continuously helping to raise funds for many pups in need all over the world.
