TikTok’s #ClingyPets Challenge Is the Cutest Social Media Craze

Are you fighting off your dog or cat’s need for cuddles as you read this? You might want to record them because the #ClingyPet challenge is taking off on social media!

TikTok content creator, Scott Tavlin, posted a quick video asking people to show him how clingy their pets are. What ensued was millions (yes, millions according to the TikTok tag) of videos of proud pet owners showcasing just how much their animals love them.

In many of the videos, the audio from Tavlin’s original request plays while pets paw, nudge, and otherwise bother their owners until they receive some attention. That’s the entire premise of the hashtag, but sometimes, we just need a little something to make us smile, and nothing sparks joy like animals being cute.

If you need a reason to grin, we’ve included five of the best #clingypets videos on TikTok below.

This adorable pooch just wants to be as close as physically possible to its human, is that so wrong?

This person can’t even go to the bathroom in peace, but would you really mind when your dog is this cute?
