The best silly made-up holiday to happen this week was definitely National Pet Day. Because who doesn’t love pets? Even Stu Bykofsky loves them.

For most people, whether or not you have furry ones at home, pics of cute animals offer a great break from the daily grind. That’s what we were feeling midweek, so we asked you to show us your adorable loved one on Twitter. And you responded with great creature-filled kindness.

Check out all these great best friends helping brighten the lives of Philadelphians.
