My favourite animals on Instagram

I follow lots of people on Instagram and I love looking at what they’ve been getting up to. My favourite pictures are the ones of people’s adorable pets so I’ve put together a list of my favourite animals on Instagram. @white_coffee_cat Coffee is a British shorthair from Los Angeles with huge adorable blue eyes. His owners usually share pictures of him lounging around and playing with his sister Luna. @walterwhitethesamoyed Walter White is a Samoyed puppy named after Water White from Breaking Bad.
