If My Cat Had an Instagram Account...

May 22, 2015

I know I’m late to the party, but I recently joined Instagram (follow me here—and if you’re on Instagram, let me know so I can follow you!). I finally have a smartphone that takes decent pictures, and I’ve always thought Instagram sounded like a fun way to record simple pleasures and everyday adventures. I’m still figuring out how to use the features, making mistakes and bumbling around. I was lying in bed contemplating what I might post, when it crossed my mind that it would be amusing to see what my pets would share if they had their own Instagram accounts. I decided to take some pictures from their points of view and share them here.

First up, if Prudy had an Instagram account, this is what she would post (FYI, the following pictures were taken with my phone, but not actually posted to Instagram.):

First things first—a selfie.

My favorite: the ’nip.

I like to knock this in the pool every day—it doesn’t seem to know how to swim.

My nemesis.

Where I hone my razor-sharp, tree-climbing claws.

This is dinner. Where is the parsley garnish? Cretins.

I’m sure this is exactly what the inventors of Instagram had in mind…

Stay tuned for life as seen through Scout’s and Tank’s eyes. (I know you can hardly wait.)

  1. Cute post. I don't have an Instagram account either. I wonder if it's similar to Flickr? Probably easier to post. I may have to check it out. And yes, I'm looking forward to seeing the world through Scout's and Tank's eyes.

  2. I forgot to ask what phone you got?

  3. Thanks, Cheryl. Instagram is easy to post to, and it looks like you can do fancy things with your photos if you want to. I have Moto G phone and I like it very much. So far it's done everything I've wanted it to do.

  4. I don't even have a smart phone, but I love this Instagram portrait of your dear cat!
