When Will 'The Secret Life of Pets' Be On Netflix? Here's What To Watch While You Wait

Unless you're living under a rock, you've probably heard about and most likely seen The Secret Life of Pets. You know, the Toy Story-esque movie about what happens with your pets after you've left the house? It has a 74% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and grossed a huge amount of money when it was released earlier this year, so needless to say, it's a good time to be had by all viewers. But if, like me, you prefer to take in a film on your couch with a bowl of popcorn and missed the movie when it was in theaters, then have no fear, because sooner or later The Secret Life of Pets will be on Netflix and you'll get to enjoy it for yourself.

Unfortunately, there's no word yet on when exactly The Secret Life of Pets will be on demand or streaming on sites like Netflix and HBOGo. Typically, movies seem to be available to rent about six months after their theater release so I wouldn't be surprised if around October or November 2016, we saw The Secret Life of Pets available for streaming on Netflix and renting elsewhere. And if you really can't wait and need something to hold you over until the furry friends are available on your TV screen, try these six similar movies that are available to stream on Netflix right now.

1. Lilo & Stitch

This oldie but goodie is full of heart but also has a ton of laughs. Not unlike The Secret Life of Pets.

2. Minions

Minions is written by Brian Lynch, who coincidentally also wrote The Secret Life of Pets.

3. The Boxtrolls

This is a movie you won't be sorry you watched.

4. The Little Prince

You can't miss this one. Trust me.

5. How to Train Your Dragon 2

If you haven't seen the first one — what are you waiting for? And if you have, don't miss this equally thrilling sequel.

6. The Land Before Time

Bring tissues.

Like I said, no word on when The Secret Life of Pets will be available on Netflix, but hopefully one of these six movies can tide you over until it eventually arrives.
