National Love Your Pet Day falls on Feb. 20 to appreciate house pets that shower unconditional love on their owners. This holiday is much about giving them some extra attention so that they feel loved.

Pets come with infinite benefits. They connect with their owners on a deeper emotional level and their dedication is unrivaled. When cuddling with the pets after spending a bulk of time at work, the owner is relieved from his stress.

Pets are typically selfless when it comes to love and they are so easy to please. Even a distracted pat from its owner would cheer them up when they are craving attention.
