Paris Hilton has won numerous awards for being the worst celebrity pet owner in the world. (Britney Spears has also been a winner in this category.)
Why? Because Paris treats her dogs as accessories. Instead of allowing her dogs to be dogs, she seems to be more worried if her dog matches her shoes.
But Paris reassures the public that she is an animal lover. She said her animals make her really happy. Her collection of pets includes eleven dogs, three cats, three ferrets, two rabbits, and two monkeys.
Her dogs, cats, and rabbits are free to roam around the house, while her monkeys and ferrets live at her ranch. And she has someone to take care of all her pets.
Paris told Elle magazine: “I have this guy, Eric, whoâ€™s like a zookeeper, and heâ€™s with them all the time. He loves them, and I love them, too. But since I work a lot Iâ€™m not always home.â€
Well, at least she is making sure her animals are taken care of when she is away.
But Paris has gotten in trouble with animal authorities in the past. The first situation involved when she bought a kinkajou (a rainforest mammal). She had to give up Baby Luv (pictured here) because it is illegal to own one as a pet. In a second incident, she purchased a baby kangaroo in Australia as a pet. Sorry, Paris, no baby kangaroos to add to your collection of pets.
