Pets

Total Quotes : 97
Love Boston

The number one mistake is giving pets table scraps. I made the mistake thinking I was showing my dog love by giving her food and treats. You see a tiny 4 oz. piece of cheese, but for a Boston Terrier like mine, that's like one and a half hamburgers. That's unhealthy.

- Alison Sweeney

Own Appropriate

Our pets rely on us entirely for their nutrition. So if you're making your own judgments, that could lead to a mistake. At the same time, we have more control over our pet's diet than we do with our children or with ourselves, so your vet can tell you what is appropriate for your dog and you can assign them that.

- Alison Sweeney

Good Different Places

I am a pet person. My dog actually lives in Georgia now. But I work with animal trainers and pets quite often. I also volunteer at different places like animal shelters. It's good to be around pets. They kind of put things into perspective. They're easygoing, loyal, and they seem to get it, even when humans don't.

- Alyson Stoner

Big Mum

My mum loves cats so I took her to see the lion cubs which at about a year old are actually quite big. She wasn't scared at all and went straight over and kissed one on the mouth! She thought they were just like her pets at home.

- Amanda Holden

Love Big

I love my pets, and I'm a big animal lover. I also enjoy the nature and countryside.

- Amy Jackson

Chicken Some

You don't have to live on a farm to have chickens; in some places, you just need a little bit of green space and a tidy chicken coop. To me, they're nearly ideal pets. They feed us more often than we feed them! We have 2 chickens, Goldie and Paprika, and they each produce 1 egg a day, sometimes more.

- Amy Robach

Next Nearly

'You have chickens?' That's what nearly everyone asks next, after they find out about our family pets. They just need to make sure they heard me correctly. Perhaps it's because I don't come across to most as a rural-loving farm girl.

- Amy Robach

Pet Here

Ever consider what pets must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul - chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!

- Anne Tyler

Love Deep

I think human self-hatred may be the great untold story of the millennium. It's the common thread linking deep ecology and animal rights, the love and money we lavish on pets, the uneasy longing for extraterrestrials to be meddling with us.

- Annie Gottlieb

Think I Think

Owning pets is as close to a universal phenomenon as, I think, anything.

- Chris Meledandri

Love Other

I do think we're in a period of time culturally where there is just this extraordinary connection that we have to our pets, and in many ways, they are displacing kids. They're so much simpler than dealing with a kid because of this unconditional love that does not get complicated by adolescence or any other manipulation.

- Chris Meledandri

Civilization Ultimate

No phone. No pool. No pets. No cigarettes. Ultimate freedom... No longer to be poisoned by civilization, he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become Lost in the Wild.

- Christopher McCandless

Birds Dogs

I have dogs and birds as pets.

- Coco Martin

Always Could

I am from Brooklyn, NY, so we could not have many pets, but I always had at least two dogs.

- Connie Stevens

Door Baggage

I like people who are still actively creating in their life, who aren't set, I don't feel like I'm set. And I don't have any baggage, for better or worse. I don't have any plants or pets or kids. I can lock the door and go. I need to be with somebody for whom that's okay.

- Dana Delany

Country Betterment

What I want is the general betterment of pets. No-kill is a part of that. I'd like to see that policy enacted at all SPCA-type organizations around the country.

- David Duffield

Best Buy

One of my obsession is animals. I'm into dog rescues. It drives me crazy when people go to pet stores and buy dogs. There are so many dogs that need a good home. And this sounds crazy, but I really believe they know what is happening and are appreciative, and I just think they make for the best pets.

- Jim O'Heir

Very Affluent

One thing lots of Christians do have in common is that they can't help coming across as smug. This winds lots of people up, particularly because famous Christians pronounce on the life of the poor from their very lovely affluent homes filled with their very lovely families and attractive pets.

- Jo Brand

Death Purpose

Sometimes it seems the whole purpose of pets is to bring death into the house.

- John Updike

Why Very

It's important to remember that the animals are not grieving with us. They're very accepting. They're not lying there thinking 'How could you do this to me? Why aren't you keeping me going?' Pets don't do the human things of guilt and anger and recrimination that we do. They come and go with great acceptance.

- Jon Katz

Die Some

Some people say that their pets will tell them when it's time to go. I don't believe that. No animal of mine has ever told me he was ready to die. I wish it were that simple. Dogs can communicate, but they cannot talk, nor do they think in our language or on our terms.

- Jon Katz

Through Charities

I've teamed up with PetSmart Charities to celebrate the five million homeless pets who've found homes through their in-store adoption centers, and to spread the word about how we can work together to save millions more pets' lives and, ultimately, end pet homelessness.

- Josh Duhamel

Deserve Been

Adopted pets are the best pets you can have. Most adoptable pets come from loving homes that simply cannot care for them anymore. Or, they are strays who've been on their own without the loving care they deserve.

- Josh Duhamel

Shelter Drop

Puerto Ricans who find they can no longer afford to keep their pets often choose to drop their dogs, sometimes even whole litters of puppies, at a beach - sometimes under cover of night, in secret - rather than surrender the animal to a city or state-run shelter where the animals will face grim conditions and almost certain death by euthanasia.

- Juliana Hatfield

Love I Love

I love pets, especially dogs.

- Jurgen Klopp

Treat Workman

I put myself on the same level as everyone else around me - from the directrice to the workman, everyone. Except my pets - they are the Kings; you must treat them like royalty.

- Azzedine Alaia

Growing Up Growing

I didn't have any pets growing up.

- Ben Barnes

Fact Year

It's a little known fact that one in three family pets gets lost during its lifetime, and approximately 9 million pets enter shelters each year. That's why it's a wonderful thing to get your pet microchipped and registered with your contact information because then they can be located and the owners can track where their pets are.

- Betty White

Critics Never

My critics are pretty tough. I've never been one of the music industry's pets.

Peeves do not make very good pets.

- Carrie Ann Inaba

Always Very

I had mice that I kept as pets when I was very young, and I've always liked the way they look. Even rats. I'm not scared of them.

- Catherine Deneuve

Pet Responsibility

Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life.

- James Cromwell

Factory Opposed

The attitude we have towards our personal pets as opposed to the animals that suffer under the factory farm is hypocritical and delusional.

- James Cromwell

Financial Allowed

People's financial situation has changed, and they surrender their cats all the time, because they're downsizing or moving to a property where they are not allowed to have pets.

- Celia Hammond

Love Pet

Owners lavish love on their pets, which is why so many go from non-aggressive pups to being out of control when they're older. People just don't realise their dog must respect them as leader of the pack.

- Cesar Millan

Boston Gardens

Because we can't escape our ancient hunger to live close to nature, we encircle the house with lawns and gardens, install picture windows, adopt pets and Boston ferns, and scent everything that touches our lives.

- Diane Ackerman

I Am Couple

I do have a couple of pets, but I am determined to keep them out of the media spotlight.

- Jason Gann

Hollywood Burn

So many young pets burn out in Hollywood, it's crazy.

- Jason Gann

Some Very

What I'm attempting to do is to show people that if I can spend some time with very dangerous spiders and snakes and scorpions, then maybe they'll feel different about the spiders and snakes they find around their areas. I don't need people to keep them as pets. I just like them to be respectful and see that everything in nature has its place.

- Dominic Monaghan

Love Like

I really love pets. They're like children. They know if you really love them or not. You can't fool them.

- Donna Douglas

Love Fraught

Humans have a fraught relationship with beasts. They are our companions and our chattel, our family members and our laborers, our household pets and our household pests. We love them and cage them, admire them and abuse them. And, of course, we cook and eat them.

- Jeffrey Kluger

Feed Almost

There was a point when I almost gave up. I couldn't feed myself. I couldn't feed my pets.

- Eleanor Mondale

Small Could

I travel way too much to have any pets. But if I could have one, I'd want a quokka. They're basically small kangaroos native to Western Australia.

- Justine Larbalestier

Living Sounds

I hate a word like 'pets': it sounds so much Like something with no living of its own.

- Elizabeth Jennings

My Own Guard

I don't have pets, I have two guard dogs; and I don't do my own shopping; it's a security thing.

- Enya

Always Give

My job was to give 'The Secret Life of Pets' production team lots of options when it came to Duke. So that's what I always tried to do.

- Eric Stonestreet

Country Been

I'm used to riding horses. My father used to breed horses when I was a child. I grew up in Tipperary, in the country, and lots of people have horses there. If my parents hadn't been in the business, we would have them anyway, as pets. And my cousin Richard is a jockey.

- Kerry Condon

Understand Shelter

Shelter dogs are the most loving, wonderful, sweet pets in the world. They understand being rescued, loved, and protected. The hubs and I have 2 rescued 11-yr-old Pomeranians, who adore us.

- Faith Hunter

Treasure Things

I don't treasure things much - just people. And pets.

- Felicity Kendal

Hollywood Became

Both Kennedy and Obama exuded a dash of glamour in their roles as commander-in-chief and became the darlings of Hollywood. As president, each brought to the White House a fashionable and accomplished First Lady, two adorable young children and scene-stealing pets.

- Kitty Kelley

Love Germany

I wrote a techno song about the four things I love in Germany to make myself happy, which are my grandfather, my two poodle pets, bread, and a strange but delicious Turkish dish called Doener Kebab.

- Flula Borg

Christmas Over

Pets, like their owners, tend to expand a little over the Christmas period.

- Frances Wright

Love Sharply

The intuitive connection children feel with animals can be a tremendous source of joy. The unconditional love received from pets, and the lack of artifice in the relationship, contrast sharply with the much trickier dealings with members of their own species.

- Frans de Waal

Education Treatment

Learning about factory farms and their horrendous treatment of animals is what made me become vegetarian in the first place. I also support the education of the public on adopting pets from animal shelters or saving homeless animals off the street in lieu of buying them from pet shops.

- Laura Mennell

Pet Mankind

It's difficult to understand why people don't realize that pets are gifts to mankind.

- Linda Blair

Through Like

I'm also interested in pets with alopecia. And design. I'm surprised I haven't gone through with a homeware brand. The bedding, the comforters, the candles, the this and that. I would like to design everything.

- Lisa Vanderpump

Extended Family Part

The charity work is just a part of what I do. Like... I make time to clean my house, to care for my pets, to visit my extended family, because those things are important to me. Same with helping others.

- Lori Foster

Independent I Write

The men I write can be intense, quiet, outspoken and outrageous, deadly or fun... but I would never waste time on a hero who wasn't honorable, who didn't protect those who couldn't protect themselves, who didn't value children and pets, who wasn't independent and unselfish.

- Lori Foster

Blind Injustice

Now, and in the future, my focus is entirely on pets and children. I'm not a person who can turn a blind eye to injustice against them.

- Lori Foster

About Felt

Funnily enough, the most danger I felt was when I did a story about exotic animals kept as pets in America.

- Louis Theroux

Reason Providing

When I was a child and teenager I read whenever I had the opportunity, but since then I've found it hard to read as much as I'd like, children, work, and pets all providing powerful incentives to escape into a book and a practical reason why I rarely do so.

- Louise Brown

Big Very

I have taxidermy pets that are very close to me. I have a little lizard with a head that comes on and off that I call Nicolas Cage because his face is long. And I have a big diamondback rattlesnake called Rufus, and I have some rats in jars and stuff.

- Mackenzie Davis

Away About

Muscles. We're talking about muscles? They're like pets, basically, and they're not worth it. They're just not worth it. You have to feed them all the time and take care of them, and if you don't, they just go away. They run away.

- Ryan Gosling

Been Mostly

I'd been writing stories since I was a child. I wrote little books for my mom and bound them myself with needle and thread. Mostly, they were about my pets.

- Tess Gerritsen

Protection Very

Ageing is very rare. We only see it in humans and laboratory animals and in zoo animals and in our pets. Basically, organisms that are protected from the external world. Once you create that protection, you live long enough to see ageing.

- S. Jay Olshansky

Yellow Very

I have pets, but they're the really ordinary sort - yellow Labrador, tabby cat, white rabbit, a few goldfish - that kind of stuff. Nothing very... extravagant or unusual or exotic, but I find, in terms of inspiration, Mother Nature is just it.

- Graeme Base

Love I Love

I love cats. I've had cats as pets.

- Sam Raimi

Very Great Way

My campaign is about getting pets to be more active, and exercise with your animal is a great way for people to exercise. When you're out with your pet, it becomes fun. You don't think of it as a chore. For me, taking my dog out for a walk is very relaxing.

- Misty May-Treanor

Think A Good Thing

I think pets are a good thing, especially if you get them out of a shelter.

- Mitchel Musso

Thought Always

I've always had a fascination for animals. I loved watching them, and even then I thought of them as beings rather than pets. I call it a birth affect!

- Tippi Hedren

Too Much Too

I do not have any pets. We travel too much.

- Nancy Kerrigan

Big Some

I used to have some fish, some nice little carp, but they got too big for the tank. I don't have any pets now.

- Tom Felton

Love Bed

I've learned from my pets that it's okay to sit around, and people don't love you any less if you sit around all the time. In fact they might love you more, 'cos they always know where you're always going to be: you're always going to be laying in bed.

- Maria Bamford

Pet Purpose

I never married because there was no need. I have three pets at home which answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog which growls every morning, a parrot which swears all afternoon, and a cat that comes home late at night.

- Marie Corelli

Mind Always

As long as I can remember, I've always had pets. Something about the connection you share with this entirely different species just blows my mind.

- Reid Scott

Small Very

As a very small boy, my passion was nature, and I had pets - cats, a dog and a bunny rabbit - and I wrote a very small book called 'My Pets,' filled with their photographs and a discussion about my pets and how much I loved them... That was my first book.

- Tony Buzan

Always Been

For myself, I've kind of always been interested in pets because they're not human.

- Shaun Tan

Mostly Types

Pets inspire many different types of behaviour in their owners, mostly ranging from adoration to ridiculous obsessiveness, in my experience.

- Sheherazade Goldsmith

Loved Dad

My father loved people, children and pets.

- Tony Visconti

Parent Imposed

Disney features, especially the early ones, were horror movies with cute critters: Greek tragedies with a hummable chorus. Forcing children to confront the loss of home, parent, friends and fondest pets, these films imposed shock therapy on four-year-olds.

- Richard Corliss

Scorpions Predators

I have snakes, three sharks, moray eels, piranhas, five scorpions and a bird spider. All of them are predators. They are dangerous but it's cool to have strong and powerful pets.

- Tracy Morgan

Grow Might

I didn't grow up with pets, but I live alone and figured a dog might be good for me. His name is Drexl, and he's a shih-tzu.

- Marsha Thomason

Notes Been

Kind 'Guardian' readers have been forwarding me round robin Christmas newsletters for years now: lengthy missives full of perfect children, exotic holidays, talented pets and endless, tedious detail. The notes that accompanied them revealed they had inspired in the original recipients everything from mild irritation to absolute rage.

- Simon Hoggart

Money Lot

People really do spend a lot of money on their pets - sometimes more then themselves.

- Oksana Baiul

Lazy Became

If anything, the bailouts actually hindered lending, as banks became more like house pets that grow fat and lazy on two guaranteed meals a day than wild animals that have to go out into the jungle and hunt for opportunities in order to eat.

- Matt Taibbi

Find Like

I stuff animals I find; I do roadkill. They're strangely fun to have. They're like easy-to-control pets.

- Padgett Powell

Woman Bed

Every woman should have four pets in her life. A mink in her closet, a jaguar in her garage, a tiger in her bed, and a jackass who pays for everything.

- Paris Hilton

Love Pet

Pets have more love and compassion in them than most humans.

- Robert Wagner

Genetic Weight

People say their weight is genetic. But it turns out that people who are overweight don't just have overweight kids. They also have overweight pets. That's not genetic.

- Mehmet Oz

Parenting Litter

The interesting thing about being a mother is that everyone wants pets, but no one but me cleans the kitty litter.

- Meryl Streep

I Think Hang

I think people are obsessed with their pets because pets don't speak. It's that simple. After you hang up the phone, you never hear a dog say, 'You're a liar, and you are making the same self-sabotaging mistakes that have kept you single for far too long.'

- Taylor Negron

Been Experiments

Of the seven experiments, the ones that have been most investigated so far have been the pets. The dogs who know when their masters for coming home, and the sense of being stared at.

- Rupert Sheldrake

My Life Shy People

I have had strange animals as pets all my life. I was shy growing up, and shy people tend to interact better with animals than people. Animals are direct, not duplicitous.

- Yvonne Craig
