Run of the mill household pets like cats, dogs and gold fish are so 2016, right? Who wants a kitty when you can opt for their cooler, older cousin the tiger, instead!?
That was Disney star Dove Cameron's thought process, anyway as she has just taken to Twitter to announce that she has adopted a tiger.
Okay okay, it's not what it sounds like.
The Descendants actress has symbolically adopted a tiger through the World Wide Fund for Nature to protect it from the harshness of the wild.
"i just adopted a tiger! did you know that their bones are being used for our medicine and that there are approximately less than 3,200 tigers left in the wild?," she wrote via Twitter.
She added, “I am legitimately sitting in bed crying about the tigers. please donate.”
So while the tiger might not be hanging in her bedroom like a cat would, the actress has done her bit to ensure that her furry friend is looked after by the wildlife conservationists.
