Thinking of getting a new pet, but tired of that whole dog and cat thing? Look to Hollywood's most glamorous stars for inspiration! Here's a list of the most unusual and wonderful celebrity-animal pairings.
Amazingly, Neil the lion was the first of several live-in lions for the Hollywood family. The world was dumbfounded when Life published a photo spread of Neil just hanging around the house with Griffith and her mother, actress Tippi Hedren.

"And then, the lion and the mouse lived happily ever after. Goodnight, Melanie!"
Hedren now runs a big cat sanctuary and admits that letting the lion live in the house was probably a bad idea.
Clooney lived with Max, the 300 lb. pot-bellied pig, for 18 years. They even shared a bed together.

"I cuddle with a giant pet pig every night and I'm STILL the sexiest man alive!"
The old rumor was that the "sexiest man alive" had no room for a wife, as long as he had his pig. Max passed away in 2006 and Clooney wed Amal Alamuddin in September 2014.
Lots of people raise chickens. But how many of those people dress them up and carry them around like they're tiny dogs? Coco Chanel, a Silkie Bantam chicken, sleeps in a dog bed and travels in Spelling's purse.

"Black is very slimming. Even for chickens."
Spelling also makes all of Coco's clothing. Which makes total sense, since chickens normally wear clothes.
