Apart from stalking our crushes, following our fave celebs, and shopping for anything and everything, Instagram wins as our favorite platform for discovering the cutest, most nakakagigil pets from around the world—from a toy poodle from Japan to a giant cat from Thailand, even an artsy hedgehog from Canada, there's so much adorbz to go around. Here, Chalk rounds up some of the most "aww"-inspiring, must-follow creatures on Instagram to easily brighten up your gloomy day!
If this little bugger right here doesn't make you go "aww," you seriously have to get your heart checked because this female toy poodle is so fluffy we just wanna die. Spreading cuteness to the world from Japan, Ernie looks like a puff of the most delicate clouds sent from the heavens above—and we want to hug her so bad!
2. Bone Bone
One of Instagram's newest pet celebrities, Bone is the ginormous cat that everyone wants to take photos of/with. When he's not being featured on TV, guesting at events, he explores Thailand with his trusty backpack or lounges around the house, just being cute and all.
3. Black Jaguar-White Tiger
If you're a fan of not-so-average "pets", Eduardo Serio's account features lovable rescued jaguars, tigers, and lions housed in his very own sanctuary for these rescued animals. Even the likes of Khloe Kardashian, Paris Hilton, and Kayley Cuoco are part of the cats' 6.3 million fans. While the Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation has been criticized for being "a disaster waiting to happen," Serio's love for his many babies and their love for him can't be denied.
4. Amelia Hedgehog
Meet the artsy little critter from British Columbia! What began as a simple photography series by her photographer owner soon turned into a full-blown project that "produces campaigns, prints, and hedgehog art." Trivia: The African Pygmy hedgehog is named so after fearless female pilot Amelia Earheart and French film heroine Amélie! So cute!
5. Tonkey Bear
"Instagram's living, breathing teddy" is a Shar Pei from Canada that first gained popularity in 2015 when her owner opened up her own account. Since then, the bear-coat dog has grown to make a name for herself and Shar Peis everywhere! Honestly, who could resist that maamo face? D'aww!
Seriously, if we were to become cats in our next lives, we'd totally want to be this "British Shorthair with big blue eyes and an even bigger personality." Dubbed by Buzzfeed as "The Most Beautiful Cat on Instagram," he truly is a stunner with fur as white as snow and eyes as bright as gems. (Even his cat eyeliner is on fleek!) He's a pro at posing for the camera, too! Get 'em, Coby!
