Some of the famous pets even have their own Instagram accounts with thousands of followers. HELLO! have gathered some photos of celebrities who are besotted with their canine and feline friends, have a look at the cute snaps below…
Taylor Swift is pictured here in New York holding her cat, Olivia Benson, as she strolls through the city. The 29-year-old explained to Access Hollywood shortly after the photograph was taken in 2014, that "the kitten freaks out about being put in the cat carrier. So, I was just like, 'Ok, all right, we're gonna do this!'" The You Need To Calm Down singer has three cats, after recently expanding her feline family and they all have pretty purrrrfect names; Dr. Meredith Grey, Olivia Benson and Benjamin Button.
The Strictly Come Dancing professional has two beloved pet pooches, Betty and Marley. The TV star shares Betty with her estranged husband Kevin Clifton but she decided to adopt Marley last summer, a few months after the couple split.
Before she met Prince Harry, Meghan adopted Guy – a rescue dog – when she was living in Toronto, Canada. It seems this pooch has well and truly been accepted into the family, having been spotted in May 2018 riding in a car with the Queen ahead of the royal wedding. Unfortunately, the former Suits actress had to leave behind her other beloved dog Bogart when she relocated to the UK.
However, once Meghan and Harry had settled in together in the UK, they added another dog, a black lab, who remains unnamed. Meghan references both Guy and this new dog in her September guest edit of Vogue, stating: "Sitting on my sofa at home, two dogs nestled across me, I quietly celebrated when the words appeared on my screen".
KEEP SCROLLING FOR MORE PHOTOS

Following his divorce, it was revealed Ant and new girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett, 42, became proud owners of two MaltiPoos, Milo and Bumble, in February 2019.

Dec posted a picture of himself and his Dachshund dog Rocky outside Noel Fitzpatrick's vet thanking The Supervet for helping cure Rocky. Best friend and presenting partner Ant has previously spoken about the friendship the pair's dogs also share, saying: "It's funny because mine's a chocolate lab… and his is a Dachshund called Rocky. The size difference is ridiculous. Your dog could walk under my dog and not get wet. They are best friends. God aye, they love each other. I can't walk past his house now without Hurley pulling me off to try and go in."
In 2016, the presenter welcomed two adorable kittens, Teddy and Bluebell, following the death of her pet cat Roxy. The feline duo's names were chosen by her children with Holly joking on This Morning that the names could have been much worse.

Lorraine's dog Angus is a Border terrier, who is a relatively new addition to their family, becoming the television host's pet in December 2018. The cute canine friend followed Rocky, the former Border Terrier of the family who sadly died five years ago at the age of 12. The new pup famously chewed his passport whilst on a trip to Costa del Sol with the 59-year-old; luckily Angus was given a Spanish passport to allow him back home to the UK, meaning he has dual nationality.

The Obama family's first pet dog is called Bo, a male Portuguese Water Dog who was given to the family as a gift. The choice of breed was due to Malia's allergies and Bo was later joined by Sunny, a female Portuguese Water Dog.
Gemma has two dogs called Norman and Ollie; the duo appeared on ITV's Britain's Top 100 Dogs Live 2019. Speaking to K9 Magazine, the mum-to-be explained: "Ollie's my mum's dog really. I got Norman on my own but they're always together since they've been puppies really. I mean there have been times when I've been going through difficult times and I've just come home and sat on the couch and had a little cry and it's like they know what you need to cheer up." The 34-year-old enlisted the help of her pooches to share her pregnancy news on Instagram.
