There are so many fun pets in the many fictional universes of pop culture. I’m sure there are some I’ll think of later and kick myself over. For now, here are the five fictional pets I’d like to adopt.
Waddles the Pig (Gravity Falls)
Just look at that adorable piggy face! I want to squeeze his cheeks and cuddle him so hard! Waddles is pretty much the cutest (full-size) pig ever. He would be my trusty sidekick and I’d feed him scraps from the dinner table. It would be even more amazing if I could adopt the super-genius Waddles from Season 2 after he eats that magic mushroom paste. Then we could save the world together and he’d be the first pig to win a Noble Prize.
Hedwig the Snowy Owl (Harry Potter)
Hedwig is super smart and protective of Harry. She even gives her own life to save him! I would love to have a beautiful, intelligent owl like Hedwig to keep me company and deliver my mail. I’ve always liked the idea of an owl post. Seems to me it would be more effective than our current postal service.
Adipose (Doctor Who)
Ok, I know the Adipose are made up of fat and other biological tissue, but they’re just so damn adorable! They’ve got one little tooth like a baby. I bet they would be super squishy to hug. I seem to have a thing for fat, cuddly, squishy things. 😀
Rajah the Tiger (Aladdin)
Who wouldn’t want a ferocious bengal tiger as their pet? Especially because that probably means you’re royalty like Princess Jasmine. I always wanted to be like her when I was little. She’s the prettiest Disney princess in my opinion (and the one I look the most like thank you very much). Rajah is super sweet with her like a tamed house cat, but very protective as you can see from this photo from when he bit Jafar in the ass.
Pascal the Chameleon (Tangled)
Pascal is hilarious. He would always keep me entertained. Just look at the expression on his face; he’s got to be the most expressive chameleon in existence. I’m not normally into lizards, but I do adore chameleons. Their color changing super powers are pretty rad too.
I have a feeling I may have more favorites after Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes out! What are some of your favorite fictional pets?
