These adventure cats named Bolt and Keel — with 29,000 Instagram followers — soak up the great outdoors with their owners Kayleen VanderRee and Danielle Gumbley, who've taken them camping, canoeing, kayaking, snowshoeing and more.

Over 400,000 Instagram followers can't be wrong — Juniper has been dubbed the happiest fox on Instagram. But not everything about this cutie is smile-inducing, “Foxes smell. Bad,” her owner told BoredPanda. Thankfully, her pictures do not.

Christopher Cline's Instagram page has become a big hit thanks to the Photoshopped pics he posts of himself hanging out with his larger-than-life Goldendoodle, Juji. Portraits of the pair hiking, watching TV, sightseeing and chopping down trees are the mid-day escape everybody needs.

Pumpkin the raccoon thinks she's a dog and her dog friends are totally okay with it (that's love!). Photos of the Bahamian pet raccoon — who was rescued when she fell out of a tree at 1-month-old — are as yummy as a pumpkin spiced latte.
