PetMOJI-fy Your Furry Friend With “The Secret Lives of Pets”

Ever wondered what your pet would look like as a cartoon character? The PetMOJI Creator helps you reimagine your pet for the silver screen.


If you have a dog or cat, you’re probably just as obsessed with them as the rest of us crazy pet parents are with ours. And if you’re like us, you’re also going get a nerdy thrill out PetMOJI-ing up your favorite furry friend!


That’s where the new and super-fun PetMOJI app comes into play. A tie-in for the new film “The Secret Life of Pets”, the app allows you to create an adorably silly animated version of your dog or cat that you can save and share across social media.

With all kinds of customization options, you’re sure to come up with a creation that resembles your pet in both looks AND personality.


Watch us create our very own PetMOJI below, and then head on over to MyPetMOJI or download the iPhone app to make one of your own!


First things first. Is your pet of choice a dog or a cat?

Now, choose a body type and color for your pet! (This PetMOJI will be modelled after the author’s Border Collie-Lab mix, Matilda.)

You can also pick a pattern and color for your pet’s fur — most of our pets are not all one color, of course!

Now choose the set of eyes that most represent your pet’s personality! Goofy, worried, serious, curmudgeonly… which will it be?

Then, pick the right ears! You can change the ear color, too.

Finally, pick a tail, any tail! After this you’ll be all set.

And, TA-DA!!! We have the finished product!

The Secret Life of Pets is in theaters July 8. Happy creating!
