As pet owners, we all love a good quote about cats or dogs. Here at Bob Martin, we’ve put together our 10 favourite quotes about pets that couldn’t be more true. Read on and share your favourite quotes with us on social media!
“The average dog is nicer than the average person.” – Andy Rooney
There’s probably more truth to this one than we care to admit. Dogs are inherently sweet and pure and they’re a true gift to mankind. Ignore anyone that says anything different!
“Cats have a scam going – you buy the food, they eat the food, they go away; that’s the deal.” – Eddie Izzard
Cats sure know how to get what they want from us. They also know how to make sure we’re left feeling like the lucky ones.
“Scratch a dog and you’ll find a permanent job.” – Franklin P. Jones
More of a warning than anything else. If you give a dog some nice scratches, chances are, they won’t forget about them and likely keep returning for more.
“I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It’s not. Mine had me trained in two days.” – Bill Dana
Keeping owners in line is a kitty speciality. They might not be easy to train, but who cares really when they’re so adorable.
“There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.” – Bernard Williams
We already know that dogs can work wonders when it comes to our mental health. Dogs bring joy to owners across the world on a daily basis and we couldn’t be more grateful. It’s no wonder that the number of people seeking therapy dogs is on the rise.
“Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.” – James Herriot
If you ever need a lesson on how to kick back and relax, look to your cat. Cats know exactly how to get comfortable and enjoy nothing more than a leisurely snooze by the fire. Who can blame them really?
“Many who have spent a lifetime in it can tell us less of love than the child that lost a dog yesterday.” – Thornton Wilder
It’s true that there’s no bond quite like that between a child and their furry friend. There are countless benefits for kids that grow up with pets and here at Bob Martin, we’re all for it!
“If cats were double the size they are now, they’d probably be illegal.” – Douglas Coupland
With their sharp claws and pointed fangs, there’s no doubt that if cats were a bit bigger, they definitely wouldn’t be allowed! As cat owners though, we love them for their ferocity and it’s seriously cute that their larger than life personalities come in such a small package.
“Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love can make them wag their tail.” – Kinky Friedman
You can spend thousands on a designer dog (especially these days), but only love will seal the bond between the two of you. Whether you buy your dog from a breeder or rescue them from a shelter, if you give your pooch your heart, they’re sure to give you theirs.
“I wish people would realise that animals are totally dependent on us, helpless, like children, a trust that is put upon us.” – James Herriot
Ultimately, having a pet is a huge responsibility and not one that should be undertaken lightly. Cats and dogs come with a lot of commitment; you have to be prepared to meet their needs and love them as if they were a child. Let’s appreciate them for the true blessing that they are!
