Love your pet? You’ll definitely relate to these heartwarming quotes
Having a pet can be so life-changing. In the age of a worldwide pandemic, millions of people decided to adopt, rescue, or buy pets to assuage feelings of loneliness & isolation. Even before the pandemic, humanity has always known how wonderful it can be to have a pet to love. Some people prefer to spend their time with a loyal, affectionate, loving dog. Others prefer the quiet, aloof independence of a cat.
Some people enjoy low-maintenance pets like fish or gerbils. Others enjoy pets that are considered exotic like snakes, birds, and spiders. Regardless of the pet you choose to have, you already know how positively your pet has impacted your life.
Reliable animals full of love
Alfred A. Montapert was a philosopher from the early 1900s. He talked about pets many decades ago saying, “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.” Pets are grateful to be fed, to be given a home, and to be taken care of. It doesn’t take much to please a pet, whereas it takes a lot to please a human being.
Pets have more love & compassion than humans
Robert Wagner is an American actor from shows like NCIS and movies like Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. His opinion on animals is quite similar to the one coming from Alfred A. Montapert. Wagner said: “Pets have more love and compassion in them than most humans.”
Pets love unconditionally. Nothing gets in the way of their love for the humans who care for them. With human beings, love can, unfortunately, be conditional at times in many circumstances.
Pets are a gift
Linda Blair is an actress who sees the benefit of having pets clear as day. It simply makes sense to her to own animals. She said, “It’s difficult to understand why people don’t realize that pets are gifts to mankind.” Some of her biggest movies include Repossessed, The Exorcist, and Hell Night which are all known for fitting into the horror genre. Her movies definitely don’t match her peaceful & loving opinion on precious animals.
Loving an animal awakens the soul
Anatole France was a French poet born in the 1800s. These days, people can still totally relate to his view on animals. He once said, “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” The gentle love of a pet really does open your heart right up. Taking care of a pet and filling it up with love is such a beautiful experience for human beings to explore.
Pets are humanizing
James Cromwell starred in the movie Babe in 1995 as well as its sequel Babe: Pig in the City in 1998. The movies focus on the life of an adorable pig who is very intelligent & sweet. It isn’t surprising at all that Cromwell is an animal lover who respects pets deeply. He said, “Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve, nurture, and care for all life.” He’s absolutely right.
Pets never judge
British author George Eliot once said, “Animals are such agreeable friends—they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.” This is one of the truest statements anyone could ever make about pets. They are there through it all. They witness their owners making mistakes, doing bad things, and messing up all the time. They still love their owners regardless. In a pet’s eyes, their owner can do no wrong.
Animals improve humans
Rachael Ray is one of the most famous professional chefs ever. She rose to fame after appearing on an episode of Oprah’s talk show and she’s now built an entire empire. She isn’t just focused on cooking up delicious dishes all the time though . . . she also loves animals. She said, “I think having an animal in your life makes you a better human.” Caring for an innocent creature like a pet helps people become more thoughtful.
