Pet owners would argue that every day is "love your pet day."
Monday, however, is a day that officially recognizes that special bond between people and their beloved pets.
According to NationalDayCalendar.com, Feb. 20 is "National Love Your Pet Day."
The site called the day a holiday "set aside to give extra attention to and pamper your pets."

The site also said that most households in the country have at least one pet.
Dogs are more popular than cats, but not by much.
Birds, reptiles, fish and rats have also found their way into people's hearts.
