We all love our pets. And we try to do everything that we possibly can to ensure they lead a happy and comfortable existence no matter how short it may be. What we are able to provide is not only based on our pet’s requirements but also on the affordability. All pets deserve to be treated like royalty the standard for which is set by their respective owners. But there are certain lucky ones that live life truly king size. These belong to the rich and famous people of the world. One could even say that the kind of treatment that these pets receive is probably better than most humans do. Their standard of living is significantly higher than their relatively less blessed peers.
These dogs get their own houses to live in. and not just the typical doghouse. These fully fledged dog houses can come with fully functional temperature controlled swimming pools.

Paris Hilton for example is particularly partial towards her Chihuahua. She has been seen carrying it around everywhere she goes in its own custom designed Louis Vuitton purse. Decked in branded sunglasses or clothes often coordinated with her own, she sure knows how to pamper her lovable pooch. This dog lives the high life. It gets to visit some of the most exotic places in the world, travelling in style and living in utmost comfort. Hollywood celebrities live with their pets in eloquence. The food is fresh of the highest standards. They are also dressed in clothes custom made by designers like Dolce and Gabbana.
Some stars go to extreme lengths to keep their pets in close vicinity, living with just as many as comforts as they themselves do. A famous Bollywood actor was reported to buy an entire plot adjacent to his own home, exclusively for his pets. They would live, play and peacefully co-exist right next to the actor in question. They were provided with a 24 hour help who would be expected to take complete care in his absence. This proximity made sure that the actor could go and visit his beloved pets whenever he could and rejuvenate himself by playing with them when he felt it necessary.
Michael Jackson is another example of celebrities with a special bond with his pets. He was a step ahead of other celebrities. This is because he not only had typical animals like dogs, etc. as pets, but his favorite pet was a chimpanzee. He kept all his pets in his grand mansion equipped with its very own zoo and amusement park, he liked to call Neverland. He was one of the richest, most popular musicians of all time. With the resources at his disposal, he made sure this reflected in the kind of life his pets lived too. They would oftentimes accompany him in his private jet on his music tours all around the world. Their living arrangements were at par with his own in fully serviced suites.
There have been several instances across the world where a rich person has left all their inheritance and property to their pet’s well-being instead of their family members or friends. Their legal will clearly states that the millions of dollars in their name are now in the hands of their beloved pet. This is not restricted to dogs but cats too. After the pet’s death, the remaining inheritance is then utilized as donation to charities or further transferred to the pet’s off springs. Or it could be used in the upkeep of the residence. This not surprisingly does not bode well with the relatives of the person in question.
Sometimes burglars find it a good alternative to kidnap a rich person’s pet. This is because the net worth of the pet or the amount of money in the pet’s account is high enough to compensate for other materialistic gains. The pet is so dear to the owner, that they are willing to pay abnormally high amount of ransom money, just to get their beloved pet back. There are cases where the pet is much dearer to the owner than his own offspring. Many a movies have been made along these lines, where the kidnappers find it cumbersome to provide the pet with the same kind of lifestyle that it is comfortable with.
Some might call it a futile waste of money. Such affluent people should take the responsibility of not only providing their pets with such an extravagant lifestyle, but at the same time try to adopt stray, abandoned or sick animals as pets, those that genuinely need special care and attention. They must also invest in the setting up of establishments catering to care of animals.
