Full disclosure: I don't follow any pets on Instagram. I prefer them in the flesh—most of the time.
That being said, scrolling through images of dressed-up pups, cuddly-looking cats and clans of pretty little rabbits does, at times, prove to be a therapeutic activity.
Take JiffPom, the Pomeranian that, with over 7 million followers, topped Instagram's list of most followed pets on the app in 2017:
A three-time Guinness World Record holder, JiffPom also has his very own website, where his fans can buy branded hoodies, shirts and phone cases. So is the life of a famous pet in 2017.
Not a fan of JiffPom? Worry not! You might want to follow the other pets that made Instagram's Year in Review report.
