Awwww: The Cutest Author Pets on Instagram, Part 2

Being a reader in the 21st century is awesome for many reasons, like the fact that you can now interact directly with some of your favorite authors on social media. And one of the best parts of an author’s social media account is pictures of their pets, because cute animals pics is why the internet exists!

Brace yourself for gratuitous cuteness: Here are some of my favorite author pets on Instagram. I have a lot of favorites, that’s why this is part 2. You can check out part 1 here! And we’d love to hear about your favorite author pets in the comments.
