1# Maine Coon

One of the biggest little cats on the block, the proud, tough-looking Maine Coon is already dominating the kitty inspired Instagram market. Lotus the Maine Coon is top cat for now with over 240k followers!

2# Siamese

That classic Siamese style never goes out of fashion. Elegant, sophisticated, and with a laid-back cool that you just can't imitate, these guys are the perfect Instagram pussycats!

3# British Shorthair

With those adorable chubby cheeks and their distinct chunky frames, the British Shorthair is guaranteed to build up a huge social media following. Bella the British Shorthair is already on her way - the super cute kitty has over 29k fans that follow her every move.

4# The Scottish Fold

The Scottish Fold gets its name from its distinct ears that bend forward onto the head. This unusual look gives the Fold an almost 'owl-like' appearance that will grab anyone's attention while scrolling through the Gram.

5# Bengal

The Bengal cat is one of our most iconic furry friends. Bred from a hybrid of domestic cats, the Asian leopard cat and the Egyptian Mau, these striped and sported beauties will always clock up the likes or turn that hashtag viral.

6# Persian

The Persian cat numbers speak for themselves. With over 4 million mentions and hashtags, these flat-faced furballs are one of the most popular breeds on the internet.

7# Sphynx

The Sphynx cat is the only hairless breed on our list. Bald and beautiful, these follically challenged kitties are cute enough even without the fur. And with over 4 million mentions on Instagram, it looks like the cat-loving community agrees with us!

9# Russian Blue

The regal-looking Russian Blue is the epitome of feline grace and sophistication. Intelligent, sensitive, and slightly aloof to begin with, the Russian Blue is the thinking persons perfect pet.

10# Munchkin

Munchkin by name, Munchkin by nature. Also referred to as the sausage cat, the Munchkin's short legs and long barrel body are likely to cause a cuteness overload in the brain of any cat lover! Think you can handle it?
