There’s nothing we love more than a good holiday, and today marks just about the greatest one of all (sorry, Christmas): National Pet Day.

Choosing to stay away from the ongoing dog vs. cat debate, we here at PEOPLE Pets are celebrating by sharing our favorite photos of camaraderie; the rare moments when dogs and cats play nice.

Below, you’ll find five of our favorites, and the perfect dose of cuteness to kick off your weekend.

You promise after I tickle your belly you’ll tickle mine?
