Posted by

A new breed of animal megastars are taking social media by storm with some boasting bigger followings than major news and sports networks. These animals have amassed millions of followers and they are now reaping the rewards of stardom. Social media has given everyone a chance to have a minute of fame but these early adopters have millions of followers including many pet accounts. If you’ve got less than a million followers (and who doesn’t) watch out as these animals are more famous than you.

The Cats


Sockamillion aka Sockington is a fairly normal domestic cat who has shot to stardom after his owner, Jason Scott started posting on Twitter in late 2007. As of March 2017, Sockington has over 1.4 million followers on Twitter and was named by Parade magazine as a Pet Power Player. Not bad for a cat who started life as a stray outside Boston Sunway Station in 2014.

Maru, born in May 2007 has become a You Tube mega star amassing an impressive 300 million views as at January 2016. He has more subscribers than CNN and Fox News put together but then when you check out his videos we have to admit that this little Japanese cat certainly has the cute factor.

Nala was an unwanted rescue cat whose luck changed when she was adopted by Varisiri Mathachittiphan. Her owner set up an Instagram account to share her experience and now Nala has 3.3 million followers. Nala is a fan of dressing up and often posts pictures of herself on her birthday wearing a party hat, wearing wigs and even a Santa costume when she wished all her followers a ‘Happy Friskmas’. Nala has sponsorship deals with Persil, Friskies and appeared in the latest Google Pixel smartphone ads. We love the facial expressions.
