In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened.
You cannot share your life with a dog, as I had done in Bournemouth, or a cat, and not know perfectly well that animals have personalities and minds and feelings.
The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.
Charles de Gaulle
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.
Alfred A. Montapert
