PetMugging, It's the New Thing!


Social media has brought some super funny things to our lives. We get to share our everyday, our kids, and come up with creative and fun ways to make our photos stand out. When it comes to our pets — they’ve become pretty famous thanks to photo sharing social media like Instagram.

Inspired by the hilarious viral images of #BabyMugging which was created by fellow Babble blogger and super funny friend Ilana from Mommy Shorts, we thought it was time for some of that spotlight to be taken off the adorable babies for one moment and given to our fuzzy, loved pets. Basics of it — you take an image of your pet that makes it look like they’re sitting inside a cup or a mug and let the hilarious ensue.

With the help of Ilana, we asked fellow Instragram users to share images of their dogs and cats sitting in mugs (#PetMugging) and the images are just as cute as could be. I’ve even got my own cat participating and like everything else with my cat Ariel, she’s thrilled to be included.

Check out some of the images shared of pets, petmugging it out like it’s the new thing:
