"I hope to make people realize how totally helpless animals are, how
dependent on us, trusting as a child must that we will be kind and take
care of their needs....[They] are an obligation put on us, a
responsibility we have no right to neglect, nor to violate by cruelty."
"If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and
gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."
"I have felt cats rubbing their faces against mine and touching my
cheek with claws carefully sheathed. These things, to me, are
expressions of love."
