17 Adorable Animal Pots For Displaying Your Plants

A plant’s best friend is the planter it lives in, so why not showcase your favorite greenery in adorable animal pots? The pots we picked are smaller in size, making them great to use as succulent pots or for smaller-sized plants. These would also make great gifts for the green thumb friends or family members in your life.

From this list of animal pots for plants, we included pig pots, cat pots, dog pots, rabbit pots, and more. There’s something here for every animal lover!

Because the size of these pots is on the small side, we recommend watering with this squeeze water bottle or a watering can with a long narrow spout. That way, you make sure you’re targeting the soil and not the side of the pot.
