The Definitive Guide To Making Your Pet Famous On The Internet

Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub, two felines with no concept of wealth or celebrity, have already reached a level of success more lofty than the rest of us will probably ever see. Because the world has never been -- nor ever will be -- fair, each cat nets its owner six-to-seven figures of real American dollars, all in exchange for living, breathing and doing cat stuff.

But they didn't make it on their own! They had a lot of help (duh, because they're cats) from their owners -- the real heroes of this story. They're the ones devoting an unfathomable number of hours to bravely documenting the inspirational lives of their pets, armed only with smartphones and a deep sense of purpose. They're the ones who keep their pets' schedules. They're the ones who sacrifice real jobs for their furry friends who don't actually give a damn. This life could be yours!

Admittedly, it is much easier to achieve supreme secondhand Internet fame when your animal friend was born with some unique quirk, like Grumpy's perma-scowl or Bub's goofy tongue. But there are plenty of average-looking pets enjoying the thrill of Internet fame, as well. So, after making profiles for your pet on Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Vine, Ello, Emojli and Yo, ready your smartphone. Here's all you need to do to make him or her a star.

For those with average Internet connections like us, these happy corgis will keep you entertained as the photos load below.
