Ah, cats: Let us count the ways we love thee. Whether they鈥檙e stealing our hearts in Halloween garb or slaying the great outdoors, there鈥檚 no denying that these strange little creatures have earned an irreplaceable spot in our hearts (and on the internet) forever. Thus, it only seemed fitting that on National Cat Day we鈥檇 pay homage to our feline friends with 10 of the best cat Instagram accounts around, each one unique in his/her own way. But instead of the usual suspects (we ALL love Grumpy Cat and 鈥楲il BUB, after all), you鈥檒l find some rising stars on the list who you need to know before they hit the big time (if they haven鈥檛 already). Read on to see who made the cut below!

Does anyone know what happened last night? 馃樄馃拑馃徑馃帀

1. @winstonsmushface, 20.9K followers: We can鈥檛 even begin to explain all the ways seeing Winston Smushface鈥檚 mug cross our feed brings us joy. Maybe it鈥檚 the completely ungentlemanly way he sits, or that look of complete bewilderment that seems to be permanently etched on his face鈥 or maybe it鈥檚 just that ridiculous haircut. But whatever it is, we can not. get. enough.

2. @goalkitty, 31.7K followers: If you鈥檙e not familiar with Keys, AKA Goal Kitty, allow us to introduce you to your new obsession. Keys likes to raise his arms into the air like a field goal. A lot. For no particular reason. His owner can鈥檛 explain the behavior, but luckily, he documents it for us all and posts it to Instagram, and really, isn鈥檛 that reason enough?

3. @loki颅_the_sphynx, 23.7K followers: Not only is Loki the Sphynx unusual in breed (he鈥檚 hairless, in case you hadn鈥檛 noticed), he鈥檚 also鈥 unusually well dressed? No, but seriously: This cat has a jumper collection like you wouldn鈥檛 believe. Those sweaters paired with those smoldering stares? Pure Instagram gold.

4. @soulpatchkat, 7,229 followers: Soul Patch Kat is a cool little chick 鈥 so cool, in fact, that she even has her own likeness on a pillow. Unique for (what else?!) the black soul patch she sports on her chin, this kitty recently underwent surgery on her hip, so here鈥檚 to wishing her a speedy recovery!

5. @princessmonstertruck, 258K followers: With a face that only a mother (and the rest of the world) could love via Instagram, Princess Monster Truck has earned her right to her Instagram honors 鈥 she was a stray rescued from 鈥渢he mean streets of New York.鈥 Now adored by 258K fans, she鈥檚 got all the reason in the world to grin that quirky, underbitten grin.

Excuse me, can we bring the weekend back please?

A post shared by Sam (@samhaseyebrows) on

6. @samhaseyebrows, 212K followers: Why, yes. Yes he does. And a whole lot of followers because of it. Whereas Grumpy Cat looks perpetually angry, Sam looks鈥 perpetually alarmed, providing hours of entertainment.

7. @studleycat, 46.7k followers: Just TRY to tell us that Studley Cat doesn鈥檛 look like a tiny little grandpa! Though his round, saucer-shaped eyes and his pushed-in nose often makes him look slightly down in the dumps, he鈥檚 simply too cute to look away from.

8. @spicethebengal, 19.5k followers: Not only are these Bengal kitties (Spice + Lele) completely darling in and of themselves, the photography on the part of their owners is top notch. These are no amateurs: Even simple behaviors like sharpening claws become total works of art in the hands of this masterful account. Think National Geographic for cats.

A post shared by Nala Cat 鈩 (@nala_cat) on

9. @nala_cat, 3.1m followers: With 3.1 million followers, Nala聽is a bonafide Instagram STAR, and it鈥檚 not hard to see why: Those wide baby blues paired with a love of鈥 (is that cheese?), sheets and cardboard boxes make her impossible not to love.

10. @tidus03, 2,274 followers: Giving Grumpy Cat a run for his money is Tidus, who, quite frankly, always looks pissed. In all fairness, we鈥檝e got a sneaking suspicion this COULD be due to the frequency with which his owners dress him up (to the amusement of us all).

Bonus: @catwiththeirtonguesout, 99.4k followers: The premise of this account is simple enough: Capture cats with 鈥 you guessed it! 鈥 their tongues out, but it鈥檚 good for a laugh at LEAST twice a week, and, best of all, snaps come from followers, so your own Fluffy pal could get his/her 15 minutes, should you tag the right shot.

Tag your furry (or furless!) feline over @BritandCo.
