There’s only one kind of pet that wouldn’t look out of place in a Star Wars movie and that’s a cat.
Low-maintenance, adaptable and therapeutic, we can totally picture every Star Wars character with their own feline sidekick.

The Walt Disney Animation Studio artists have given us BB-8 with a whole litter of kittens:
Princess Leia with a fluffy white Persian:
R2D2 with a black and white ball of cuteness:
Padmé Amidala and a regal black puss:
