Even movie stars need a best friend who will give them unconditional love. Sometimes Fridays are hard to deal with; Mondays, when your film's weekend performance is totaled up, even worse. On such days, a warm ball of fur is a welcome companion, as many of us can relate to. But make no mistake, celeb pets aren't like Fluffy from next door - for one, some of their human's fame rubs off on them by way of social media visibility. From Priyanka Chopra to Alia Bhatt, many stars regularly update their Instagram accounts with posts featuring their pets. We've collated some of these for you. You're welcome.
Salman Khan with his pets Myson and Myjaan
Salman's two French Mastiffs are named Myson and Myjaan. He also has a Labrador Retriever called Mowgli, a Saint Bernard called Saint, a Napolean Mastiff called Mylove and another French Mastiff called Veer.
Priyanka Chopra with Diana
The 'Quantico' star, who lives and works in New York now, adopted the pup about four months ago and named her Diana. The actress revealed that she fell in love the first she saw Diana. Wherever Priyanka, Diana does too. One glance at this pup and anybody will fall in love with her.
Anushka Sharma and Dude
Anushka Sharma and her Labrador Dude are too cute to miss. Anushka's Instagram is flooded with posts of her pooch and she champions animal welfare to boot. It's cuddle time, everybody.
Athiya Shetty with Brody
Athiya Shetty is an avid animal lover. She often posts pictures of herself with dogs and cats.
Twinkle Khanna with Cleo
We all know both Twinkle and Akshay Kumar are proud owners of Cleo. Their son Aarav was heartbroken after their dog Oakey died at the age of 12. Cleo has filled that void. Twinkle captioned one post: "Today for the first time I saw Cleo befriending one of our stray entrants."
Alia Bhatt and Eddie
Alia Bhatt got a kitten for her birthday earlier this year and named him Edward Bhatt, Eddie for short. Now, we aren't cat people ourselves but we have to admit that Eddie is pretty darn cute. Did you ever see a furball more adorable?
Kriti Sanon and Disco
Kriti Sanon often posts pictures of her pet Disco, a Bichon Frise her sister gave her as a birthday gift last year. Disco recently turned one and Kriti plainly cannot get enough of her pooch.
Yes, we know there are many celeb pets who aren't on this list - the Bachchans' dogs, for instance. Look out for another list coming up. Meantime, tell us about your pets using the comments section.
