What are the pets in Among Us?

Among Us pets are cute and collectable critters that follow you around, sit atop your head, or just vibe with you as you both explore the ship and try not to die. If you do kick the bucket, your pet pal will mourn your unfortunate passing. Goodness me, is someone chopping onions in here?

How do I get a pet in Among Us?

You can purchase Among Us pets via the in-game store. There are currently five pet bundles available, each for $2.99/£2.79. They include the Bedcrab bundle, Brainslug bundle, Hamster bundle, Mini Crewmate bundle, and Stickmin bundle. The Glitch Pet is the only Among Us pet you cannot purchase with your hard-earned cash. Instead, you need to watch at least half an hour of a participating Twitch stream.
