Mr. Bagel is the name of an adorable chinchilla who has stolen the hearts of over 70,000 people. An Instagram celebrity, he (with the help of his owners, of course), shows the world just how much he wishes he could be human. Posing with dollhouse furniture and other tiny props including current books and Starbucks drinks, Mr. Bagel is quite the model.

Six years old and living in the San Francisco area, " Mr. Bagel lives for treats, especially dried rose hips and plain oatmeal. Oh, and he's against fur clothing since as many as 150 chinchillas are skinned alive to produce a single coat," writes Refinery29. He also advocates adoption for his fellow animals.
