Silly Sunday: Quotes About Dogs and Cats

Sometimes after a long day and annoying commute, I’m happy to come home to my cats. They’ll meow at me for about 20 minutes and then spend the rest of the night napping, purring, and hoping I give in and feed them till they burst. I know several people who have said that their pets are nicer than some people they’ve met.

I also know some people who believe a house is not a home unless there is a four-legged critter running about in it. Considering how much we all care, love, and invest in our pets and how much they give back to us, it seemed natural to find quotes by famous people about pets and their thoughts on them.
