Cats and dogs are cool enough on their own, but just in case you weren’t convinced about this verified fact, here are some famous people with their pets to convince you. Given how most of the pet owners on this list are larger-than-life celebrities, it’s nice to know that even they enjoyed the company of pets just like we do.

It’s hard to compete for attention in a world dominated by cats and dogs. However, a little hedgehog named Darcy is giving them a run for their money. Her climb to sensational popularity began almost three years ago when her loving owner Shota Tsukamoto first put a photo of his adorable pet on Instagram.

Stuff On Scout’s Head is a blog run by Jen Gillen, a woman of patience, and her dog Scout, who could blow any circus poodle off the stage with his master balancing skills. On Stuff On Scout’s Head, Gillen posts pictures of, you guessed it, Scout balancing things on his head. Not only can he hold a roll of toilet paper on his head (which is how it all started), but he can hold a laptop, a bucket of paint or even a vase as well. Scout is so well-trained that not even a slice of pizza or a pyramid of burgers can distract him.

Don’t worry, though – not a single doggy was harmed during this photoshoot.
