We Love These 7 Gay Celebrities Almost as Much as We Love Their Adorable Pets

Celebrities — they’re just like us. And like us, they love their pets. And some of our favorite celebrities aren’t shy about giving their pets a little screen time on social media. So we’ve decided to round up some of our favorite gay celebrity pets — hunky guys who are even hunkier when they’re showing love to a furry friend or two.

Our Favorite Gay Celebrity Pets, in no particular order:

1. Kevin McHale’s dog Sophie and cat James

Kevin McHale recently came out as gay (and, uh, buff AF), but we’ve always known he’s an animal lover. Here he is pictured with his dog Sophie, though he’s also got a Siamese cat named James.

2. Andy Cohen’s dog Wacha

If you’re a fan of Andy Cohen, you’re likely also a fan of Wacha, his sweet pup. And if you can’t get enough of Wacha on Andy’s own Instagram feed, Wacha has got his own, full of pictures (mostly without his owner). Though, if the below picture is any indication, Wacha might just have a side piece, and we’re not mad about it:

3. Russell Tovey’s dog Rocky

Though we’ve given Russell Tovey a fair amount of crap in the past for comments that reeked of toxic masculinity, you’ll never find us talking smack about Rocky, his adorable pup. After all, what shade could we throw at someone who can rock a sweater this well:

4. Karl Lagerfeld’s cat Chopette

Karl Lagerfeld may be a fat-shaming jerk, but he thinks Chopette, his red-point Birman cat, is the exact right amount of fluffy. Lagerfeld has said, “I never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat.” And with a cat as beautiful as Chopette, yeah, we get it.

TO MY DAHHHLINGS FOR MY BIRTHDAY At the wise age of 7, I would like to impart some wisdom on you humans: ————————————————————————- – I may be “7” but I don’t look a day over 5. – Since age is just a number, I think Daddy @karllagerfeld should finally start being honest about his. 😹 -My maids still pamper my every need just like they did when I was a kitten. -My first “Daddy” was @baptiste.giabiconi and my cold heart still melts for him like my own Daddy @karllagerfeld. – My hobbies include but are not limited to: sun bathing, pawing at the latest @chanelofficial collections, eating caviar, catnapping on Daddy’s sketches at completely inappropriate times, and stalking @evachen212, @stassischroeder from @pumprules, @therealgracecoddington, @laurabrown99, @lindaandwinks, @ttomasihill, @jxxsy, and @chrissyteigen on Instagram. Dear (fashion) god, please make me as cool as these humans one day. – The private jet I fly on is Daddy’s and not mine contrary to what you’ve read in Page 6. – I started my social media career before “influencers” were a thing. Please refrain from using this term with moi. – My annual salary and net worth are none of your business unless it’s @forbes calling to put me on their next cover. Move over @kyliejenner! – This account was not started by Daddy’s team and was instead created by @choupettesocialgirl in 2012. Please stop DMing moi for free @chanelofficial handbags. I can’t hook you up. – I am not the feline actress in the latest @swiffer commercial for all of you who keep asking. – My eyes are naturally blue and no I don’t wear color contacts. That’s animal cruelty. – Stop trying to slide into my Dm’s and ask if I’ll date your cat. This isn’t @tinder and that’s just weird. – Paparazzi are constantly hounding (unintentional dog pun..yuck!) me for photos. Case in point this candid. – My dream job besides becoming the next @lindaevangelista is to write a satyrical fashion commentary series for @vogue, @elleusa, or @harpersbazaarus. Holler at your girl! 😽 -I wouldn’t be here today if you all weren’t so obsessed with me. So… MERCI to all my dahhhlings and let’s keep this party going! 😻

This year, Lee Pace came out as a member of the queer community, though he was initially hesitant to do so. But he’s always been rather open about his love of animals, be they dogs, cats or pandas.
