2 Honorable Mentions in the Famous Pets Department
I cannot end this list of famous pets and famous animals on social media without two honorable mentions. You may already be familiar with these superstars, but in case you are not, you can thank me later for brightening your day.
1. Lizzy, A.K.A OwlKitty
You know Owl Kitty from those quirky YouTube videos where she stars thanks to her human, Thibault Charroppin, a talented video editor who blends in his black cat into famous TV and movie scenes.
Lizzy also has an Instagram account and over half a million followers. However, in her case, my heart goes to her YouTube channel, where she is the goddess of 360.000 subscribers. It is an insanely high number of followers, so for sure she is worth a mention for this famous pets category.
2. Jill the Squirrel
With 738K followers on Instagram, you can easily include Jill the Squirrel among the most famous pets on social media and one of the most adorable famous animals of all time. Jill is a “parkour expert whose only fear is the vacuum” as per her human description.
Rescued during Hurricane Isaac, 7 years old Jill now enjoys her Instagram celebrity and living the life of a true queen. You can follow her on this girl is a squirrel Instagram, obviously, but also take a look at her YouTube channel. If you meet her in person, don’t forget she loves some Starbucks napkins!
Do you follow any of these famous pets on Instagram and other channels? If not, then you’re missing out. These famous pets have reached these peaks of fame for a reason. It is not only that they are famous pets, but they also have some good caretakers that are investing in their image and health. So, tag along on their stardom journey!

I would love to hear of any other famous animals that have a social media account (you can never follow too many) if you have other suggestions. Leave me a comment!
