I’ve read many quotes about cats and dogs or animals in general. It is really difficult to just pick a few. When this web site was fairly new, I posted a few and added my thoughts about some of them.  I think I like this batch even more. I scoured the web for any quotes that mentioned animals, dogs, or cats. Some of these quotes hit the nail on the head and some are down right funny. I think that no truer words were spoken.   I feel these quotes are profound, thought provoking, or just plain witty.
