5 Super Cute Celebrity Pets
When it comes to exotic pets, Michael Jackson’s chimps come to mind; other celebrities have even had pets like kinkajous and tigers.
Of all the celebrity pets out there, though, the cutest ones have our hearts.
Here are five of the most adorable celebrity pets:
1. Hilary Swank’s Parrot
Actress Hilary Swank is the owner of an African gray parrot. These birds are known to be incredibly sociable and love to engage in repetition.
Like its cousins, parrotlets, African gray birds are extremely affectionate and intelligent. This species is one of the oldest species known to cohabitate with humans. These birds are so smart that it is believed that they even recognize the meaning of words.
2. Miley Cyrus’ Pig
Miley Cyrus is a huge animal lover; she has quite a few pets. One of the cutest, though, is her pet pig named Pig (originally, Bubba Sue).
Cyrus debuted the pig on Instagram and posts photos of the pink pig, who has gone from little to huge over the years — it currently weighs over 50 pounds. Cyrus loves to doll her up by painting her “toes” red.
3. Taylor Swift’s Cat
Singer Taylor Swift has a beautiful white cat named Olivia Benson, which she got in 2014. Olivia was named after the detective on famous show Law and Order.
Swift is known to post photos of the white feline on her Instagram, and fans love her. The cat has also made appearances in Swift’s promos for Diet Coke.

4. Leonardo DiCaprio’s Turtle
In 2010, Leonardo DiCaprio shocked the world when he bought a Sulcata tortoise. These giant animals can weigh up to 200 pounds and live for as long as 80 years.
These amazing animals grow rapidly in their first few years of life, and then their growth slows down as they age. These animals like to live outside where they can roam freely.
5. Audrey Hepburn’s Deer
One of the most famous celebrity pets ever is a deer named Pippa, owned by Audrey Hepburn. Hepburn got the deer while filming Green Mansions in 1959; production suggested she take it home so it would learn to follow her around, and Hepburn loved the deer so much she decided to keep it post production. The two were known to run errands in Beverly Hills together.
From birds to pigs, celebrities are notorious for having interesting pets. Overall, though, they are some of the most adorable pets out there.
