Sure, today may be International Dog Day – but for the cat lovers out there, our feline friends are the real stars of the show! And new website PetsRadar is sharing the love, by flagging up the best cat accounts to follow on Instagram.
PetsRadar (opens in new tab) is the latest brand launched by media specialist Future Plc, parent of sites like Digital Camera World and TechRadar, and is dedicated to helping pets live happier, healthier, longer lives.
In addition to providing trusted advice, expert guides and detailed reviews written by a team of qualified vets, veterinary professionals and long-term pet owners and carers, the site also posts entertaining articles and daily doses of cuteness – like its breakdown of the 10 hottest Instagram cat accounts (opens in new tab).
It may come as little surprise to Insta heads that Sukii the Adventure Cat is top of the hairball heap. The stunning, globetrotting Bengal has over 1.9 million followers on the platform and it's not just down to how dang cute she is – the photography by her owner is simply stunning, showing both Sukii and her surroundings off in spectacular fashion.
As well as this kind of kitty cat cutesyness, PetsRadar gives regular recommendations on diet and healthcare, buying advice on accessories and smart technology (like trackers, feeders and the best pet cameras (opens in new tab)), plus how-to guides and pet care tips.
The COVID-19 situation saw a surge in pet ownership, with people turning to animal friends for comfort and companionship. According to The Dogs Trust, there was a 25% increase in adoptions at the start of the pandemic – and PetsRadar pledges to help first-time owners of all kinds of pets get the advice they need to make their new relationships happy and enduring.
“We live in extraordinary times and the companionship and comfort our animal friends provide has never been more important," says PetsRadar's managing director, Paul Newman. "PetsRadar.com is about equipping owners with the information they need to ensure their cat, dog, rabbit or reptile lives the best life they possibly can."
