Celebs love gushing about their pets, and um, we don’t blame them. After all, it’s probably safer to talk about their favorite cuddly friend than, achem, who they’re cuddling with.
Still, it’s kind of nice to see that even with their super fab lifestyles, the stars are just normal people when it comes to Fifi and Fido. Here are a few of our favorite quotes. We dare you to read and not want to get a pet of your own!
Carrie Underwood to Good Housekeeping on her rat terrier, Ace:
“He goes everywhere with me, and I’ve been accused in different dating situations of loving my dog more than I love the person I’m with. He’s really, really cute.”
Kristen Stewart to People magazine on her cat:
“I’m obsessed with my cat. We have a really strong, really weird codependent, almost Bella/Edward relationship. I’m going to be a crazy cat lady one day, I’m sure.”
Taylor Swift to Us Weekly on her kitten Meredith:
“Her name is Meredith — Meredith Grey because she’s a gray cat, and because I love Grey’s Anatomy! She’s awesome. She’s like one of those cats that give cats a good name. She doesn’t hide under furniture and get weird around people. She’s really friendly and fun and she’s perfect for the road because she doesn’t ever get freaked out. So I’m really glad that she has a cool personality.”
Jordin Sparks to People magazine on her lab, Noni, and three schauzer-bichon-poodle mixes, Maggie, Miles and Minnie:
“My dogs are amazing! If something’s wrong [with me], they kind of shift their mood, too. They can sense it. It’s really nice to have that. It’s a piece of home that I can take with me.”
Julianne Hough to Modern Dog on her dog Lexi:
“I’ve had dogs my entire life. I love them so much, but I never took one on as my own until I got Lexi. When I got Lexi, she became everything to me. She is like my daughter. We are identical. Her birthday is a day after mine. She is loving, caring, and independent. She will only come to you when she wants to. She loves you and wants to be with you, but only on her terms. She’s a tomboy—she loves to run and is very athletic. But she is also a priss… just like me!”
