It isn't just humans that celebrate their birthdays. Pets do it too. And as you can see from these pictures compiled by Bored Panda, sometimes they do it even better than you do.

Some of them prefer the more traditional-style birthday, complete with cake and party-hats. Others however prefer something a little bit more unconventional, like a bouquet of fish for example, or a room filled with tennis balls. But if there's one thing that all of these pets have in common it's that they all know how to throw a party!

Have any of your pets celebrated their birthdays in style? Then send us your pictures, and don't forget to vote for your favorite!
