Oscar, a blonde Yorkie, was a Christmas present in 2018—and he has been the gift that keeps on giving ever since, even for fans on Instagram. Justin and Hailey Bieber also have two exotic cats, Sushi and Tuna, but Oscar is their closest companion. If you want to feel bad about yourself: Oscar’s Instagram account has nearly one million followers.
Benjamin Button Swift, Olivia Benson Swift, and Meredith Grey Swift
If you’re a Swiftie, you know about Taylor Swift’s three cats. Even if you aren’t a Swiftie, you probably know about the cats. First came Meredith Grey in 2014, then Olivia Benson followed the same year. Both kitties are Scottish Folds. Most recently, the 11-time Grammy winner met Benjamin Button on the set of her 2019 “Me!” music video and adopted him right away. Swift isn’t ashamed of her love for cats, including it in the lyrics to 2017 single “Gorgeous”: “There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have and / Guess I’ll just stumble on home to my cats, alone.”
Emmy-winning Euphoria actress Zendaya has a black miniature schnauzer named Noon, who was a 2015 Christmas gift and was reminiscent of her deceased pup, Midnight. The 24-year-old often mentions Noon in her interviews. In January, for GQ, she called him her “emotional support dog. I try to take him everywhere. He usually comes to work with me.”
Lord Chesterfield Aniston
Jennifer Aniston announced the adoption of Lord Chesterfield from the Wagmor Pet Hotel & Spa in October 2020, to the tune of over 13 million views. (Casual.) The Friends icon—and just icon in general—also has a schnauzer mix named Clyde and a pit bull named Sophie.
Mandy Moore and her husband, Taylor Goldsmith, recently welcomed their first child—a son named Gus—but the couple had plenty of practice before then from a dog (Jackson) and three cats (Figaro, Peanut, and Olivia). On The Ellen DeGeneres Show last March, This Is Us explained how Figaro harmonizes with her and Goldsmith. Moore’s beloved dog Joni passed away last December, and Goldsmith made a stuffed animal version of her for Gus to snuggle with.
Hilary Duff and her husband, Matthew Coma, recently became dog parents to St. Bernard’s puppy Winnie. The Lizzie McGuire and Younger actress appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this month and called Wendy “the size of a dinosaur” and explained that Coma thinks he resembles her.
Gustav and Koji Germanotta
Tragedy struck in late February when Lady Gaga tweeted that her “beloved” French bulldogs, Gustav and Koji, had been stolen in Hollywood after armed robbers shot her dog walker, Ryan Fischer. The 12-time Grammy winner and A Star is Born starlet offered $500,000 for their safe return, and it was reported Gustav and Koji were returned soon after.
It’s only right that Kendall Jenner’s Doberman pinscher, Pyro, is a natural model. During an Instagram Live session with the Biebers during the lockdown, where Oscar also made an appearance, the 25-year-old gushed over Pyro and her other Doberman named Six.
The ‘K’ tradition lives on. Kylie Jenner introduced her newest addition in February: Kevin. Kylie has (or has had) upwards of nine dogs, including Italian greyhounds Bambi and Norman.
Silver and Steel Mahomes
Patrick Mahomes and his fiancee, Brittany Matthews, welcomed a daughter named Sterling Skye Mahomes in late February. The one-month-old has predictably stolen their hearts, but there will always be room for cane Corso Silver and pitbull Steel. The snuggly duo has their own Instagram , promoted proudly in the Kansas City Chiefs MVP quarterback’s bio.
