Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a function.
Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.
I really liked the snake that breaks out of the cage in the beginning of the movie. I saw it in real life, and it was really cool. Really big and fat. The owls are cool as well, but you can't really pet them.
No one ever pretended that shopping for anything is a rational experience. If it were, would there be Fluffernutter? Laceless sneakers? Porkpie hats? Would the Chia Pet even exist?
Way down deep, we're all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.
Alfred A. Montapert
Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.
I live alone, with cats, books, pictures, fresh vegetables to cook, the garden, the hens to feed.
I love cats because I enjoy my home and little by little, they become its visible soul.
As anyone who has ever been around a cat for any length of time well knows, cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human kind.

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.
I never married because there was no need. I have three pets at home which answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog which growls every morning, a parrot which swears all afternoon, and a cat that comes home late at night.
Our pets rely on us entirely for their nutrition. So if you're making your own judgments, that could lead to a mistake. At the same time, we have more control over our pet's diet than we do with our children or with ourselves, so your vet can tell you what is appropriate for your dog and you can assign them that.
I looked up my family tree and found three dogs using it.
W. L. George
Cats know how to obtain food without labor, shelter without confinement, and love without penalties.
Charles de Gaulle
The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.
Cats don't like change without their consent.
One of my pet peeves is that sometimes the talents of my band get overlooked because, and it was the same problem that Frank Zappa had, with a lot of groups that use humor, people don't realize there's a lot of craft behind the comedy.
I'm scared to death of being poor. It's like a fat girl who loses 500 pounds but is always fat inside. I grew up poor and will always feel poor inside. It's my pet paranoia.
We created a line of pet food called Nutrish that's made to human standards, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to animal rescue. One of our top-tier donors is the ASPCA, and they help us challenge animal shelters all across the country to get more animals placed in homes.
