Cats So Cute, You Won’t Believe They’re Real

by Laurie Henzel

Let’s face it– The Internet is probably destroying our attention spans and making us all slightly dumber. But on the plus side, without it, we’d never be exposed to so many amazing cat photos from around the world.

I’ve compiled a short list of some of the cutest cats on Instagram and the Internet, so get them in your feed, stat–they’re guaranteed to make you smile.

Snoopybabe (pictured above) is perhaps my favorite cat on Instagram. He (or she?) is an Exotic Shorthair from China who looks so much like a cartoon, it’s almost alarming. INSANE. See many, many more Snoopybabe photos here



Lil Bub or @bublog on Instagram, is very active on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. Lil Bub, hailing from Indiana, is “special.” She was a runt, so she has some deformities–luckily, they only enhance her cuteness. Lil Bub is so big right now. Get your fix here and buy her merch here.



Mong2002 on Instagram is an excellent place for assorted kitteh photos.



Nala_cat, on Instagram here, is a 2 year-old Siamese/Tabby mix with INTENSE eyes.



Maru is a Japanese superstar cat who loves to get into boxes. He loves being in boxes more than you love almost anything in the world. There is a massive Maru website, as well as some stellar YouTube videos which you need to watch immediately (such as the below).





@nekopic_bot is a Japanese Twitter feed that delivers a stream of toothache-inducing cat photos.



Cats that look like Ron Swanson.  There’s not much more to be said about this incredible site. We here at BUST are massive Parks and Recreation fans, and this tribute to the feline-esque face of Ron Swanson–the show’s resident grumpy iconoclast–makes us very, very happy.


I know there are probably tons more amazing cat-photo (or video) sites out there that I missed. Which ones are your favorites?
