Ever wonder if celebrity pets know they're owned by celebrities?

Surely, these animals must know their lives are a little different than the regular house cat. Whether wearing fabulous designer clothes or enjoying delicious treats, many four-legged friends in and around Hollywood are treated to a lavish life some could only dream of.

After all, not everyone can brunch at the Chateau Marmutt and snack on caviar. Sounds purrfect, right?  

With The Secret Life of Pets 2 hitting theatres everywhere on June 7, there's no better time to think about all the famous stars who are excellent pet owners. At the same time, not every famous face opts to raise a dog or cat. Oh no, they go much bigger!  

Miley Cyrus's pet pig Bubba Sue has a pretty sweet life. Cara Delevingne's bunny Cecil has also been known to have a great selfie game on Instagram.

And one can only imagine what it's like to be a wallaroo owned by Vanilla Ice.

Ultimately, the secret life of most celeb pets will probably never be revealed, but that won't stop us from fawning over the most adorable, unusual animals collected by some of our favorite stars.

Check out our gallery below to see which celebs have the most unusual pets ever!

Reese Witherspoon

"Honky the donkey #ojaidays," the actress wrote on her Instagram about the adorable creature. "They're really cute," Reese later shared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. We had a friend who had a donkey and we thought it was really cute so we got a donkey. 

Vanilla Ice

The rapper's pet wallaroo, Bucky, once escaped with his pet goat, but both were fortunately found roaming a week later and returned home. 

Audrey Hepburn

The silver screen legend first met her pet fawn Pippin while filming Green Mansions. After the animal trainer encouraged her to bring the deer home to bond, the two became inseparable friends and even slept together. 

Mike Tyson

The infamous boxer was briefly the owner of three rare white Bengal tigers, but the cost of daily upkeep—including thousands for pounds and pounds of meat to feed them each day—and their sheer size caused the athlete to part ways with his furry friends. 

Michael Jackson

The "Thriller" star famously purchased his pet chimpanzee Bubbles from a Texas research facility and raised him at the Neverland Ranch like a human baby, letting him sleep in a crib in his bedroom and wear a diaper. 

After he grew too large and strong to be managed inside the house, the animal was ultimately moved to the Center for Great Apes, where he lives today. 

Tippi Hedren

The Birds star adopted Neil the lion with her then-husband Noel Marshall while preparing to make their 1981 drama, Roar. The wild animal roamed freely throughout their family home, played with their kids and even hopped into bed with them. She later founded the Roar Foundation and Shambala Preserve to protect endangered exotic big cats. 

Cara Delevingne

The British model and actress is the proud mom of a pet bunny rabbit named Cecil Bunny Delevingne. Cecil even has his own Instagram account with 10,000 followers. 

Miley Cyrus

The "Wrecking Ball" singer is a bonafide animal lover with many dogs and cats in her pet history, but no animal was more unique to Cyrus' clan than her pet pig, Pig. 

Kaley Cuoco

The Big Bang Theory star is an avid equestrian with several of her own horses, including one named Poker Face.

Justin Bieber

The "Sorry" singer's pet capuchin monkey, OG Mally, shot to international fame in 2013 when he was confiscated in Munich after Bieber failed to provide the proper travel paperwork for the animal. Mally now lives at a national park in Copenhagen.
