We can all get a little gaga over our pets. They are, after-all, our little furbabies. We indulge them, buy them gifts and spend more on their food than you do on your own.
Celebrities, however, can take this animal love to the extreme spending thousands of pounds on their pets. They take them round the world on their private jets and even create social media pages in their honour. It can all be a be a little surreal.
