There’s no denying an explosion in the internet popularity of these lil critters this year. There was even an explosion of interest in Hedgie-con.
2. Celebrity Cats
From Lil Bub to Colonel Meow, the internet obsessed over famous felines of every size, shape, and signature accoutrement. Some of them are so popular, they’ve even seeped into traditional media. Grumpy Cat won a lifetime achievement award this year!
5. The Pug
Others might argue it was the year of the pug. Really, Vine owes a lot of its success to these guys.
6. Yelling Goat
Goat was the breakout musical animal star of 2013, being featured in no less than a dozen remixes, including this famous guest verse on Taylor Swift’s “Trouble.”
7. Baby Goats
Not to be outdone by their louder elders, baby goats aimed to make everyone’s year a little bit cuter.
9. Micro Pigs
Micro animals also had a big year, but none so adorably large as these tiny porcines. Make sure you see them all before you do anything else today.
