While you may be going a little stir-crazy at home after weeks of abiding by shelter-in-place orders to help squash the coronavirus, there are some members of the family who are glad you've been around so much lately: our pets.

They're always around to make things a little better, whether we're sad, lonely or just plain bored during this global pandemic. And it's the same for musicians.

See how artists are spending time at home with their furry buddies below.


Alex Gaskarth

The All Time Low frontman is trying to work from home during the pandemic, but his baby goats Milk, Poe and Gryff aren't making it easy. In one Instagram video, the musician is trying to promote his record, but the goats are intent on snuggling and climbing all over him. In another photo, he's napping as the three snuggle up on top of him.

Megan Thee Stallion, who was already mom to adorable Frenchie 4oe, got another sweet lil pup named Dos in May 2020. (The rapper also gave her grandma Dos' littermate as a birthday gift.) She added to her family again in September, this time with a gray pup named X who has stunning blue eyes.

Miley Cyrus

To tease Demi Lovato as one of her guests on Bright Minded -- Cyrus' Instagram Live show aimed at keeping people connected during the pandemic -- the "Don't Call Me Angel" showed off her dogs Mary Jane, Bean and Emu in a video. "Like all of you watching, they cannot believe that Demi Lovato is going to be on the show," she gushed.

Two months after Mary Jane's death, Cyrus revealed that as much as she missed her late dog, a new pit bull had come into her life to bring some love. "I feel her here with me blessing this new member to my family who’s name is 'Angel' because she was delivered to me by one... My Mary," the star wrote on social media. "It breaks my heart to know Angel was sleeping on concrete in a shelter for 3 months before finally making it home."

Miranda Lambert

Besides buying a new trailer to safely travel the country and still maintain social distancing, the country star has been cooking and enjoying time with her furry and feathered family members (and husband Brendan McLoughlin) -- and one Instagram gallery showed it all.
