ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Sunday was National Pet Day. We had to celebrate our cuddly companions and show appreciation for all the pets out there.

We asked viewers on Facebook to share some pictures of their pets and picked out a few to highlight.

We received more than 1,000 comments on our Facebook post tonight. We certainly wish that we could feature all of our viewers pets, but here’s a few. People sent us photos of their cats, dogs and birds.

National Pet Day actually started in 2006 as a way to celebrate the joy pets bring us. The National Institutes of Health said not only do pets warm our hearts but also can calm many people which they say can help lower blood pressure levels.
