Long gone are the days when we, human beings, were content with having dogs, cats and horses as pets. Now we are owning all kinds of exotic pets starting with snakes and lizards and ending with tigers and other inhabitants of the savannah. And it seems the more money you have, the more experimental you get with animals. Why not? If you can afford to keep it and feed it, then even a tiger can become your pet. Celebs have the means (and desire!) to get the most unusual animals and turn them into pets, so we could marvel at their ideas or, maybe, cross some of the animals out of our future-pet list. Here are 10 most unusual animals owned by celebrities.
Miniature Donkey (Reese Witherspoon)
Reese Witherspoon is a fan of animals and never misses a chance to add some to her collection. This cute breed of miniature donkeys is called ‘Donks’ and they are just as lovely as their name! Reese called her two new pets Honky and Tonky and they now live happily with her other pet pigs, goats, chickens and whatnot.
Pot-Bellied Pit (Megan Fox)
It’s hard to imagine Megan Fox as a proud owner of numerous dogs, birds and even a squirrel, but she is definitely all that, and what’s even more unusual is the cute pot-bellied pet-pig she calls Piggy Smalls. Megan is a gorgeous woman and she does know how to pick unique pets!
Chimp (Kim Kardashian)
Kim Kardashian is a real pro when it comes to publicity stunts. Everyone was shocked (well, at least to some extent) when she adopted Suzy, a three-year-old chimp that is now part of the Kardashian clan. Well, the chimp looks happy and we guess that’s all that matters!
Kinkajou (Paris Hilton)
Paris likes all things flashy and her cute Kinkajou pet is no different! The little critter, called Baby Luv, is an integral part of her everyday life and the two of them seem to be really happy. Apart from that one time when Paris received a nasty bite from Baby Luv back in 2006. But other than that? They are really cute together!
