Jiffpom is a Pomeranian dog who is probably cuter than the cutest teddy who was specially designed to be super cute. There’s not much to say except he’s just too cute!

In every post Jiffpom is either dressed up in a cute little outfit or performing some cute little task – or more likely a combination of both.

Grumpy Cat – 2.4m followers

We’ve arrived at the Inspiralist favourite Instagram pet! Meet Tardar Sauce, ‘the world’s grumpiest cat’. Her permanent scowl is caused by an underbite and feline dwarfism.

We think her sardonic expression is just fantastic and makes us smile every time – even if she never will! If you love her as much as we do she has socks, books, and more merchandise in her cartoon image available to buy!

Juniper – 2.4m followers

Here’s the ‘odd one out’ on the list. Meet Juniper the pet fox! So cute! She is a North American Red Fox and was adopted when she was only five-weeks-old.

Her owner claims she is the “happiest fox” and no wonder with fame and ratings like these! She’s the only non cat or dog to breakthrough into the top ten. Impressive stuff!
