Are You Looking for a Bunch of Cute Cats on Instagram!?
CBWP’s “101 Best Instagram Cats to Follow 2015” is the BIGGEST list of the best Instagram cats in 2015.
User-Nominated IG Cats in 2015
This year we had over 50 nominations by Instagram users – and a good number of them made it.
We’ve also hand selected a variety of interesting-looking cats, cats with stories to tell, disabled cats and rescue cats with few followers. No specific criteria was used, but we did want to have a lot of variety. This is what we came up with, thanks to nominations and a bit of Instagram-surfing.
We hope the less healthy cats on this list inspires one of you to adopt and save a cat’s life.
- There is no “order” or “rank” to these selected cat IG’s.
- Be aware not all IG accounts will have good language, so please review the captions in case your youngsters want to view these accounts on your tablet or phone.
- Use the Report/Flag feature in Instagram and send us an email if we missed anything that shouldn’t be in a caption, tag or if a user is being inappropriate
- If we missed any cat you think should have been included this year, leave a comment.
- Nominations for next year’s Best IG Cats to Follow will be announced at a later date.
