Maurice Sendak with Herman
"I hate people."
Donna Tart and Pongo
“My dog has a number of acquaintances of his own species — as do I — but it is abundantly clear to both of us that there is little company in all the world which we enjoy so much as each other’s.”
Ernest Hemingway and one of his many cats
“A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings,
but a cat does not.”
“Some people scorn a cat and think it not an essential; but the Clemens tribe are not of these.”
