We all know that there are a ton of influencers out there making bank. YouTubers, TikTokers and the like have found marked success in their fields as social media stars. But one of the highest grossers isn’t even human.With four legs, brilliant blue eyes, and whiskers- meet Nala the cat.
A Siamese/Tabby mix whose net worth is $100 million. And we can’t lie, she’s a purrfect cutie.
Plenty of people know that the internet is great for pet and animal videos. Animal-centric accounts are massively popular. But it makes our head spin to realize just how popular. Nala has a whopping four-and-a-half million followers. That’s a Guinness World Record. On top of massive paid advertising, the fancy feline also has her own cat food line called Love, Nala. She’s an internet sensation.
Of her species, Nala is the highest grosser on Instagram. Apparently, she’s outpaced by a German Shepherd named Gunther VI. He takes the top slot as richest canine in the world with an astounding net worth of $500 million. Though there is a point of contention. Where Nala has earned her money from the ground up, Gunther’s fortune was inherited.
There’s something to be said of some of the richest mammals in the world being pets. After all, they’re the breadwinners of many a cuteness contest. And serotonin boosters for those who need a pick-me-up. It’s not that surprising that our furry friends are so popular. But we forget that there’s money to be earned from such popularity. The rest of us are just happy to see an adorable feline face on our phones.
