Pets were added in the 2019.6.12 update. Pets follow their owner around until they die or if the game ends. They react to their owner being killed during the kill animation. Due to the exclusion of the shop on the Nintendo Switch edition of Among Us, all pets are currently unobtainable on the system.
When a Crewmate enters the UI of a task and has a pet, it will move toward them. However, this does not display on other players' screens.
Pets of a dead Crewmate are no longer seen by living players, but can be seen by ghosts sitting at the player's location of death. If the player was ejected, their pet will sit at the player's spawn location, visible only on ghosts' screens.
When a ghost player with a pet leaves the game, their pet will also vanish.
When the player is killed, the pet will vanish for living players. The pet's reaction to the death of its owner can be seen for a single frame.
In older versions, this was not the case. The pet of a dead Crewmate was visible to all players.
