Jeanette: Have you ever looked into your cats eyes, and felt that
incredible connection, like he was trying to tell you something? Felt
the love pour out of your heart and connect with his eyes. It's the
most incredible feeling ... I believe cats are from heaven, sent by God
as little 4 legged angles, to love and guard us. I believe my cats
guard me all the times. Especially at food time!

a dull moment since. I complain about her a lot, but she's the best
partner in crime a dog could have. Happy Lucy Day!!!

Teagan -

Lesley: Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so
love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones that don't.
Believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take
it, if it changes your life, let it!!. No body said that it'd be easy,
they just promised that it would be worth it!!"

Rita: My dog is happy to see me when I get home from work BEFORE asking
for dinner and happily eats whatever I feed her. Why can't husbands be
that way?
You just can't tell me the world isn't getting better and better every
day!!! More and more of you are out there saving the animals and
making planet earth a more compassionate place.

Humphrey: next time you go to a restaurant and ask for a Coke, and they
say "is Pepsi OK?", you should reply "is Monopoly money OK?"

The cat's point of view: I can't decide whether to stay in or go out....
Better get the human to keep opening the door so I can check both sides.
