9 Pets with Unusual Favorite Objects

Does your pet have an unusual affinity? If so, they are not alone! After collecting photos of your pets with their favorite things, we came up with these nine pets that are a little out of the ordinary! They include:

1. This dog that loves a severed arm prop

"Frankie is a huge fan of the TV show "The Walking Dead" he dug up an old Halloween decoration in the garage and now he thinks he's a zombie killer. Every Sunday night, he'll jump up on the couch with me and watches the show while munching on the zombie arm" -Louie R.

5. This cat that chases inanimate lizards

"Our niece bought my husband a rubber lizard. We kept it upstairs in the spare bedroom. Once we made Brinkley a part of our family, we started finding the rubber lizard in random places throughout our home. Turns out, our Brinkley loves to play with them! We find them everywhere, and if we shake the lizard he will appear, no matter where he is in the house! We retired the first lizard, named: Baby. But since have replenished his supply. Pictured: Brinkley and his lizards, Cocoa and Spots" -Jennifer S.
