Showing love to our furry little friends is something we should practice on a daily basis. After all, they're like family! But in the spirit of National Pet Day, we wanted to put the spotlight on these special animals by rounding up the most precious moments celebrities have shared with them!

Though quite a few stars have shown selfies of themselves posing with their pet, it turns out that most of them own as many as eight or nine. And if you think that's a lot, just wait until you hear what Paris Hilton had to say about her many pets!

“I love animals. I have, like, 35 pets. I have seven dogs, three cats, six ferrets, four sugar gliders — those are flying squirrels — a parrot, a pig, a pony… and a partridge in a pear tree,” she joked.

Keeping track of more than one animal can be tough enough, but we can only imagine what it's like to have 35 or more!

One look at these celebrity photos will tell you that we're not the only ones who appreciate our pooches and kittens. They're like having babies of our own — and there's nothing more precious than getting to see our favorite celebrities enjoy bonding moments with these lovable creatures. Check out our gallery of stars hanging out with their adorable pets!
