The 201 biggest – most popular and famous – Instagram Cat accounts

You probably know the top ten most famous cats of Instagram very well, but there are so many other big cat accounts with fantastic content on Instagram that are less known.

Many film stars, pop artist celebrities have grown a large following on Instagram. But instagram fame is now achievable for pets too. Especially cats are popular on Instagram. Some of them have even more than a million followers.

What does it take to make your cat famous on Instagram?

For my research about what makes certain cat accounts popular on Instagram, I made a list of the Instagram cat accounts with the highest following.

I started to go through all large cat accounts on Instagram to see what exactly the best practices are to make your cat famous on Instagram.

Nala_cat is at this moment the most famous kitty of us all with 3,5 million followers. Her feed consists of funny, playful pictures and videos of Nala with her big, cute, round eyes.

It is clear that having a cute cat, great pictures and witty captions all help to grow your account. But surely there must be other reasons why certain cat accounts grow faster and are more successful than others.

I want to find out what makes a cat account successful. That is why I will study all the accounts of my list and I will test all possible strategies with Casper’s account to see what makes the biggest impact on follower’s growth.
