Cape Town - It seems celebrities these days just aren’t satisfied with having their own social media accounts – their pets must have them too!
Katy Perry, the Beckhams, Taylor Swift and Ricky Gervais are just some of the stars who share the spotlight with their beloved four-legged friends on social media. Let’s take a look.
Taylor Swift’s cats: @meredithswift @oliviabswift
The singer’s much-loved cats, Meredith and Olivia, both boast their own Instagram accounts. Meredith is named after Dr Meredith Grey from Grey’s Anatomy and Olivia after Detective Olivia Benson from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Beckham family pooch: @olivebeckham23
Olive the cocker spaniel is a much-loved part of this famous family and while she hasn’t updated her Insta account in a while, you can still look at super-cute pics of her and the Beckham clan.
Trey Songz's dog: @kanesongz
The R&B singer had better look out – his pooch is gaining a huge fan base! When he went on tour recently his fans ended up making posters dedicated to his black and white Frenchton, a cross between a French bulldog and a Boston terrier!
Lady Gaga's dog: @missasiaxoxo
Can we just say we’d love to swop places with this Frenchie for a day! Thanks to his jet-set owner he gets to visit many exotic places and he sometimes spends time with his "dad", Gaga’s ex-fiancé actor Taylor Kinney.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' dogs: @diariesofdiana @ginothegerman
Check out the adventures of this cute pooch who follows her beautiful actress mama and new papa, Nick Jonas, around.
The couple also recently got a new doggo, Gino.
Ricky Gervais’ cat: @myleftfang
Ollie, the UK comedian’s Siamese cross feline, is a bona fide Twitter star with more than 58 000 followers thanks to his sharp – or snarky – comments depending on his mood.
Katy Perry: @missnuggetperry
The pop star is a self-admitted slave to her adorable little pooch, who’s so spoilt he even has his own personal groomer for public appearances, which includes featuring in some of his sassy owner’s music vids!
Kylie Jenner’s dogs: @normieandbambijenner
The reality star’s love for her Italian greyhounds, Norman and Bambi, is so big it even led to her skipping the 2016 American Music Awards when they had puppies. These days the pair boast more than 400 000 followers on Instagram!
