When it comes to the rich and famous, the desire to keep up with the Joneses is a strong one. This inkling to own all things top-of-the-line extends not only to the luxury homes and automobiles, but to the animals they keep as pets, too.

Even still, while most settle for a designer dog, The Birds actress Tippi Hedren went in a different direction. Her exotic choice of pet actually lived with her and her children in their Sherman Oaks, California, home during the 1970s.

When you see how massively unique her pet truly was, your jaw might just hit the floor…

Whether it’s a multi-million dollar mansion or the latest luxury vehicle, practically nothing is off-limits. This lavish lifestyle obviously doesn’t end with fancy homes and cars…
