I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
Time spent with cats is never wasted.
Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.
Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.
My little dog – a heartbeat at my feet.
In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
Just watching my cats can make me happy.
Before you get a dog, you can’t quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can’t imagine living any other way.
The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.
Cats have it all – admiration, an endless sleep, and company only when they want it.
No matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens.
No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does.
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell.
Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.
Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.
I have felt cats rubbing their faces against mine and touching my cheek with claws carefully sheathed. These things, to me, are expressions of love.
Scratch a dog and you’ll find a permanent job.
I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through.
I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.
