About Aaron's Animals

Simply put, Aaron Benitez makes “videos with animals.” From “Emo Dog Jam Sesh” to “Epic Cat House Party,” Aaron features an array of furry star power in his epic, heartwarming, and hilarious videos. A winning combination of After Effects mastery, perfect musical scores, and fur, his AaronsAnimals YouTube channel has rapidly risen to viral fame, accumulating 27M+ views since its 2015 launch. His cat Prince Michael is the true star, with Aaron frequently making cameos in Michael’s adventures and “Iron Cat” superhero quests. Capturing media attention and high profile partnerships, including one with the film #SecretLifeOfPets, @AaronsAnimals has joined @truthorange for their 2016 campaign in prevention of #CATmageddon from second-hand smoke.
