Dick Dale

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!

Perhaps it is because cats do not live by human patterns, do not fit themselves into prescribed behavior, that they are so united to creative people.

Andre Norton

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

People always joke that ‘dog’ spells ‘god’ backwards. They should consider that it might be the higher power coming down to see just how well they do, what kind of people they are. The animals are right here, right in front of us. And how we treat these companions is a test.

Karl Pilkington

My roommate got a pet elephant. Then it got lost. It’s in the apartment somewhere.

A few years ago, the city council of Monza, Italy, barred pet owners from keeping goldfish in curved bowls… saying that it is cruel to keep a fish in a bowl with curved sides because, gazing out, the fish would have a distorted view of reality. But how do we know we have the true, undistorted picture of reality?

Stephen Hawking

For many people who are so lost in their minds, so much involved in their thought processes, the only moments they have when they are not trapped in that is when they are relating to their animal, their pet.

Ron White

Maybe humans are just the pet alligators that God flushed down the toilet.

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

For me, it’s always been one of my pet peeves to keep people engaged and talking, and just always being interested in what I have going on. To keep the level of creativity always turned up to the max.

Future

I’m scared to death of being poor. It’s like a fat girl who loses 500 pounds but is always fat inside. I grew up poor and will always feel poor inside. It’s my pet paranoia.

Cher

I had a PET scan, and it was cleared. Not one cell of cancer after three rounds of chemo. But I still had seven more just for safety, which was stupid. I should have just worked on therapy.

Abby Lee Miller

I’m always gonna do my own thing. I wanna be something – whether I’m 19 years old working at a pet store, or I’m 19 years old with a No. 1 record – I wanna be the biggest I can be to my crowd, no matter what my crowd is.

Danielle Bregoli

Humor and laughter – not necessarily derogatory derision – are my pet tools. This may come from my general philosophy of never taking the world too seriously – for fear of dying of boredom.

Marcel Duchamp

My parents used to take me to the pet department and tell me it was a zoo.

Billy Connolly

Who indeed, after pulling off the coloured glasses of prejudice and thrusting out of sight his pet projects, can help seeing the folly of these endeavours to protect men against themselves? A sad population of imbeciles would our schemers fill the world with, could their plans last.

Herbert Spencer

I used to have this little mouse. I buy birds from the pet store and I let them go.

Ziggy Marley

It is a good morning exercise for a research scientist to discard a pet hypothesis every day before breakfast. It keeps him young.

I have a pet goat.

Ryan Holiday

My favorite type of pet has always been a dog. They’re loyal, kind, and offer endless affection. My friend Eric says, ‘The more people I meet, the more I like my dog.’ Funny thought.

Brendon Urie

I believe giving pets ‘people food,’ while tempting, is generally frowned upon. As a pet owner you want to prioritize your animal’s health over the entertainment value in watching your little guy bat around a small piece of chicken.

Aesop Rock

Where I go, rap goes. Rap is like my dog; it’s like my little pet. And where I go, I lead my little pet with me.

KRS-One

Like most people, I have several pet subjects – that may or may not be interesting to other people. Don’t get me started on happiness, or habits, or children’s literature, or Winston Churchill, unless you really want to talk about it.

Gretchen Rubin

Growing up in Kansas City, I was always neat, the teacher’s pet, know-it-all type.

Gretchen Rubin

Some men over-tweeze their eyebrows, and it’s just too perfect. Men are meant to have kind of a bushy brow. Too much aftershave is also off-putting; it’s one of my pet hates.

David Beckham

Laziness in my biggest pet peeve of all time. Get up, make a plan, do the work, and love yourself, people!

Dove Cameron

When a guy tells me I’m cute, it’s not something desirable. Cute is more like what you want your pet to be.

Natalie Portman

I have a chip on my shoulder I pet every morning, a constant feeling like I have something to prove. Hearing that the canon can’t be diversified, there’s no room for more brown faces – that fueled my fire.

Jason Reynolds

One of my biggest pet peeves is when a guy’s wearing flip-flop sandals, which I don’t understand. Men’s feet are disgusting to begin with, but now they’re on display when I try to go out for a nice steak at a restaurant, and I have to sit there and look at some guy’s hoof? I don’t get it. I don’t understand it.

Sebastian Maniscalco

My biggest pet peeve is when you go to a fine restaurant, and it’s like a mausoleum inside. Good food should be joyful. There should be laughter and chatter, not people sitting there like they’re in a funeral-parlor waiting room.

Jim Harrison

To me, a cat is an easy pet, they don’t need any spoiling or looking after.

Karl Pilkington

I love pigs. I think they’re very cute. I really want a pet pig, but those micro pigs, they don’t stay micro.

Nicole Byer

Just like hair frames our face, brows frame our eyes. I see so much potential in harmonized beauty whenever I see a woman who’s not filling in her brows, and I just want to go in with my brow pencil and just be like, ‘Filling in eyebrows, OK, done – look in the mirror and be inspired.’ That’s one of my pet peeves, but beauty is subjective.

Michelle Phan

I think there’s something great and generic about goldfish. They’re everybody’s first pet.

Paul Rudd

I didn’t get a lot of attention from my dad when I was young. That’s a big part of it for girls. Because your dad is the first love of your life. If he doesn’t put you on his lap and give you a pet, you do end up not really liking yourself that much.

Dolores O’Riordan

My pet peeves are people touching me a lot. Random dudes grabbing me and slapping me across the back. They’re not doing it on purpose, but it’s like they forget I’m a person. But you can’t do anything about it. What are you going to do?

Rob Gronkowski

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

I don’t have pet peeves; I have whole kennels of irritation.

Whoopi Goldberg

It might seem strange to feast on Guinea pig, but Ecuadorians love to eat cuy. Personally, I think it’s a phenomenal alternative to pork or chicken. High in protein, low in fat, cheap and easy to raise. Oh, and cuy tastes great, much like roast pig. You might call it a pet, but I prefer to call it dinner.

Andrew Zimmern

We have a habit of turning to scientists when we want factual answers and artists when we want entertainment, but where are the facts about the nature of the self? Neurologists peering at PET scans and fMRIs know they aren’t seeing the soul in there.

James Gleick

I have some road rage inside of me. Traffic, especially in L.A., is a pet peeve of mine.

Katie Holmes

My pet hate, with customers, is those that think it’s all about wallets.

Marco Pierre White

My big pet peeve with people posting food – and I love it when people post food – but my number one thing is when you’re posting at a restaurant, and it’s dark, like a date night, food never looks good. Flash looks horrible, no flash looks horrible. It’s important to only do food photos during daylight – and it’s all about color with Instagram.

Chrissy Teigen

One of my pet peeves about biblical epics was that the characters’ costumes always looked like they’re just out of the dry cleaners.

Roma Downey

There is something very independent about French balloons – you feel you couldn’t make a pet of one.

Elizabeth Bibesco

One of my pet peeves is that sometimes the talents of my band get overlooked because, and it was the same problem that Frank Zappa had, with a lot of groups that use humor, people don’t realize there’s a lot of craft behind the comedy.

Al Yankovic

A pet store is a celebration of dogs’ existence and an explosion of options. About cats, a pet store seems to say, ‘Here, we couldn’t think of anything else.’ Cats are the Hanukkah of the animal world in this way. They are feted quietly and happily by a minority, but there’s only so much hoopla applicable to them.

Sloane Crosley

I need to be able to be at a gig and just put my bag on the floor and not worry about it being stood on or getting ruined. You want a bag that can go through anything. And a little bit of softness is always lovely. If I don’t have a dog, I can just pet my bag!

Cara Delevingne

It doesn’t work if the bad guys kill his mother’s uncle’s friend’s neighbor’s pet dog. You’ve got to make the stakes high.

Steven Seagal

Most women have jobs that require them to leave the house. A cat is actually a perfect pet. You get the love and companionship of a creature covered in fur, and you don’t have to take it for a walk, and it can feed itself. Less maintenance. Surely any man can appreciate the practicality of this choice.

Iliza Shlesinger

Women are often scrutinized when they have pets that men wouldn’t have. We are immediately faulted for having the wrong kind of pet rather than anyone first think, ‘Wow, she rescued an animal that would have been otherwise killed and gave them a great home – how sweet!’

Iliza Shlesinger

One of the joys of writing historical fiction is the chance to read as much as you like on a pet subject – so much that you could easily bore your friends senseless on the topic.

Deanna Raybourn

Veterans report that service dogs help break their isolation. People will often avert their eyes when they see a wounded veteran. But when the veteran has a dog, the same people will come up and say, ‘Hi’ to pet the dog and then strike up a conversation.

Al Franken

I’m a dog person, but I don’t have a pet.

Timothy Simons

When you’re fighting for social justice, one of my biggest pet peeves is speaking out of ignorance.

Eva Longoria

It is one of my pet hates when I see players who have agents who do everything for them. They don’t know how to set up their own bank accounts, they don’t know what they are spending their money on and they can’t make their own decisions.

Gary Neville

Definitely, when I have a place and I’m going to be there for any significant amount of time, I want to have dogs. I like a pet you can have some fun with and who does everything you do.

Nick Lachey

I am an enthusiast, but not a crank in the sense that I have some pet theories as to the proper construction of a flying machine. I wish to avail myself of all that is already known and then, if possible, add my mite to help on the future worker who will attain final success.

Wilbur Wright

I remember when I was about 15 and still listened to Pet Shop Boys and Chas And Dave, some lad at school lent me a Blur tape, and it had on it a song called ‘Bank Holiday.’ I said, ‘What’s this? I liked that tape, but that one song is a bit fast’. He said, ‘Yeah, it’s punk. It depends what mood you’re in.’ And then something sort of clicked in me.

Pete Doherty

I grew up with a pet iguana named Willy. We had a very contentious relationship. It turns out that iguanas are not meant to live in suburban homes.

Kate McKinnon

Even in a culture where people are well meaning, there are sometimes ‘microaggressions.’ People who will just cut you off. You’ll be talking, and someone will interrupt you. That’s become a big pet peeve of mine.

Susan Wojcicki

When we adopt a dog or any pet, we know it is going to end with us having to say goodbye, but we still do it. And we do it for a very good reason: They bring so much joy and optimism and happiness. They attack every moment of every day with that attitude.

W. Bruce Cameron

Every time I decide I want a child I get another pet. I have 3 dogs, 13 birds and 3 horses, what does that tell you?

Alyssa Milano

I really liked the snake that breaks out of the cage in the beginning of the movie. I saw it in real life, and it was really cool. Really big and fat. The owls are cool as well, but you can’t really pet them.

Tom Felton

Vinyl is the real deal. I’ve always felt like, until you buy the vinyl record, you don’t really own the album. And it’s not just me or a little pet thing or some kind of retro romantic thing from the past. It is still alive.

Jack White

I could probably give you a list of a dozen pet peeves I have about my own physicality and why I couldn’t get a second date.

Zachary Levi

What happens when you take a lion out of the safari and try to take him to your place of residence and make him a house pet? It ain’t going to happen. That’s the type of person that I am. I’m that lion.

Cam Newton

Packing is my pet hate.

Seal

We all know the stories about the Human Rights Act… about the illegal immigrant who cannot be deported because, and I am not making this up, he had a pet cat.

Theresa May

Apart from ‘VIP’ being a blockbuster movie, the various characters such as mine, the Luna bike I use in the movie, the lovable amma and appa, a pet dog named Harry Potter, the innocent brother, etc., had a huge reach among the audiences.

Dhanush

I hate when people don’t keep their word or they are late. Tardiness is a big pet peeve of mine.

Tim Hudson

I have a lot of plants and fish and a pet lizard and Venus flytraps. I have a whole ecosystem in my room, like a running waterfall and different lights and sensors set on digital timers.

Chris Pratt

I have a pet lizard named Puff, five goldfish – named Pinky, Brain, Jowels, Pearl and Sandy, an oscar fish named Chef, two pacus, an albino African frog named Whitey, a bonsai tree, four Venus flytraps, a fruit fly farm and sea monkeys.

Chris Pratt

Disrespect is my biggest pet peeve.

Bill Goldberg

I have a lot of trouble understanding how people see me as a celebrity. I work 14 hours a day, and then I just want to talk to my family, see the people I love, pet my dog, and go to bed. I’m not looking to be best friends with or emulate a celebrity.

America Ferrera

That’s one of my pet peeves. People always want to put something into a category – this one or that one. You know, a great song is a great song.

Darius Rucker

I really want a pet, and I really love animals.

Aurora

We used to have quirky weird bands that made dance music like the Pet Shop Boys and Depeche Mode and I think people have still got an appetite for that type of music-melody and darkness.

Olly Alexander

I want to be a lawyer, a dancer, an actress, a mother, a wife, a children’s author, a distance runner, a poet, a pianist, a pet store owner, an astronaut, an environmental and humanitarian activist, a psychiatrist, a ballet teacher, and the first woman president.

Rachel Corrie

If you have time to get your pet rabbit its own Instagram account, you have time to at least tweet about something important.

Jameela Jamil

I hate rats. I had a pet rat to try and overcome it. I even gave him mouth-to mouth resuscitation when he had a heart attack. But I couldn’t conquer it.

Sam Taylor-Johnson

Environmentalists hate sprawl – except when it comes to the size of their expansive pet legislation on Capitol Hill.

Michelle Malkin

One of my pet peeves about Nashville is that it tends to be copycatted. I don’t want to do that. I’ve got to be different.

Blake Shelton

Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals ‘love’ them. But those who respect their natures and wish to let them live normal lives, love them more.

Edwin Way Teale

Because I travel so much, my biggest pet peeve is dealing with travelers – the travelers who can’t figure things out. My pet peeve is people who just have no idea how to travel.

Brie Bella

Gypsy was the name my brother gave a pet turtle he had. I always thought it was so peculiar.

Joel Hodgson

I liked animals better than people. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to be a vet – then I found out that every pet had a person that owned ’em.

Ted Yoho

Having an animal that you fix, knowing that you saved its life or you saved a pet – Like on a dog, these little kids will come, and their dog is just ready to die, and you do something, and they leave happy. The kids are happy, and the little puppy is licking your hand. Those are kind of neat feelings.

Ted Yoho

Learning from wolves to interact with pet dogs makes about as much sense as, ‘I want to improve my parenting – let’s see how the chimps do it!’

Ian Dunbar

One of my big pet peeves is single-use plastic bags. I think it’s one of the stupidest ideas in the world.

Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

I fed my yak on my spare Cadbury chocolate 21,0000ft up Everest. It was a blonde, very sweet female yak. I made it my pet after that.

Brian Blessed

We created a line of pet food called Nutrish that’s made to human standards, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to animal rescue. One of our top-tier donors is the ASPCA, and they help us challenge animal shelters all across the country to get more animals placed in homes.

Rachael Ray

My pet peeve and my goal in life is to somehow get an adjective for ‘integrity’ in the dictionary. ‘Truthful’ doesn’t really cover it, or ‘genuine.’ It should be like ‘integritus.’

Rashida Jones

Whales are killed today to supply the limited demand for whale meat or to be used in pet foods or as fodder for fur-bearing animals used in the fur trade.

Paul Watson

One of my pet peeves, one of my obsessions, is litter.

Amy Wax

I don’t mind being called Maddy at all, but I mind the closeness that you assume you get by calling me by my pet name. So merely by calling me Maddy, I don’t give you the authority to come and put your hand around my shoulder.

R. Madhavan

I heard that Jesus had a pet dinosaur. Evolution must be a myth then.

John Bacon

I love pet animals, but I don’t have any.

Asin

My dream pet? I like a couple of them, man: monkey, I love dogs. See, tigers, I don’t know – I can’t be playing with something like that. A monkey, I can handle it. A dog, yeah; I would get a monkey.

French Montana

That’s not the way the government works. You can’t just take $1 billion from this program, $1 billion from over here, and then put it toward your pet project.

Lisa Kennedy Montgomery

The first pet I remember was a cat called Baby. She would sleep with me, and I could call her from anywhere, and she would come running.

Ashton Eaton

In truth, I’m not really a cat person. Seamus, the wonder dog, still deeply mourned by all who knew him, was just about the only pet I’ve ever really loved.

Michael Dirda

I’m not a big pet fan. I remember the school used to have a hamster, and you used to take it home for a week at a time. I did that. I probably got bored of it within a day.

George Ezra

Don’t buy furs: that’s No. 1. You can start with that. Then spay and neuter your pets. We destroy millions of them a year. Go to an animal shelter for a cat or dog. And read a book about how to care properly for your particular pet.

Loretta Swit

Adopting a pet is like taking the responsibility of a baby.

Farah Khan

I love animals and feel very strongly that people should not be allowed to buy a pet if they are not able to look after it.

Kirsty Gallacher

Taking responsibility and having faith in your own judgment will help you make good choices and decisions at the end of your pet’s life.

Jon Katz

I have the same pet peeve as Anderson Cooper, which is bare feet in public. I hate it. It so grosses me out, especially in New York. Oh my God, New York in the summer with people and their feet in their sandals and their flip-flops, like get it away!

Busy Philipps

You know what I hate? I hate people who give me plants. The whole giving someone plants – it’s like giving someone a pet. I’m giving you responsibility, I’m giving you a thing that you now have to take care of for, like, a year until it dies, and then I’m giving you sadness and guilt.

Chelsea Cain

My college friends call me Karu, which is the worst. Only in our country can we make a short form for a short name. But otherwise, I’ve never had a pet name all my life. But now, in official meetings, someone will call me KJo. And I’ll judge that person in my head. Just call me Karan.

Karan Johar

If you’re trying to cut down the distance travelled from the farm to your plate, it makes sense to do the same for your pet. If we all shifted our bias towards sustainable pet food, we would be helping more than just our faithful friends.

Sheherazade Goldsmith

I have a Lab, it’s fun to hang out and hike with the dog, people come up to him, and pet him, it’s fun.

George Eads

I have a real pet peeve for women who play damaged characters but don’t look damaged.

Patty Jenkins

Being successful is about professionalism, and chewing gum is unprofessional. Its also a huge pet peeve of mine.

Tabatha Coffey

Legislators are interested in their pet projects, getting re-elected, and popularity contests.

Bud Grant

One of my pet peeves in athleisure today is clothes that make a woman feel square and one-dimensional.

Anna Kaiser

I don’t read good books anymore, it seems; I just buy them and put them on the shelf and every now and then walk over and pet them. I’m like the optimistic dieter who fills her closet with clothes two sizes too small and dreams of the day she can wear them. I know just what I want to do when I retire.

Mary Roach

Pet foods come in a variety of flavors because that’s what humans like, and we assume our pets like what we like. We’re wrong.

Mary Roach

I don’t micromanage, but I do care deeply about every product we make. Every one goes through me, and I try most of our products before they go to market, including our John Paul Pet flea and tick shampoo. If I don’t like it, it’s not coming out.

John Paul DeJoria

Pet me, touch me, love me, that’s what I get when I perform. That’s when I’m really getting what I want.

Connie Stevens

I love animals. I just don’t want to have a pet. That’s OK, right? I would take a dog over a cat, at least to interact with you. I feel like cats just stare you down all the time. Cats have, like, bad attitudes.

Erin Foster

No one ever pretended that shopping for anything is a rational experience. If it were, would there be Fluffernutter? Laceless sneakers? Porkpie hats? Would the Chia Pet even exist?

Jeffrey Kluger

I had a Super Beetle that I restored and painted deep purple in honor of Jimi Hendrix that was stolen. After that, I got a Ford Falcon that had no windshield wipers, so whenever it rained – which, thankfully, in L.A. it doesn’t do very much – I’d have to lean out my driver’s side window like ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.’

Tamara Taylor

It’s just so nice when your pet isn’t all needy. I need a lot of space, so dogs suffocate me.

Kerli

In summation, like your beloved pet rock, Twitter is useful only in your imagination.

David Harsanyi

I have a pet peeve about bands that don’t play their hits. I think it’s kind of selfish.

Art Alexakis

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

Pet stores just sell their animals.

Booboo Stewart

My pet hate is being beaten by a team who works harder than you do.

Mark Noble

Why would you want to do anything else but rescue a pet?

Paul Shaffer

I love the ubiquitous idly-dosa combination. In fact, that was my pet name as a kid! In school, I would bug the canteen boys to get me my daily quota of idly!

Hansika Motwani

My parents were very permissive when it came to animals. As long as we earned the money to buy them and built whatever structure it was they were going to live in, we could have any kind of pet we wanted. They would have let us have a rhinoceros if we could have afforded it.

Maggie Stiefvater

When you want a break from dogs, and you take them to the kennel to the stars, no one thinks you’re a bad pet owner. But when you have kids, you can’t drop them off for three weeks without someone calling Child Protective Services!

Gabrielle Union

Maybe I was unpopular a bit because I was a teacher’s pet. But even the teachers complained about me. They would say to my parents, ‘For every one question any pupil asks, Walter asks 10.’

Walter O’Brien

Truth be told, ginormous portions have become a pet peeve of mine.

Hal Sparks

I’ve never written a ‘Revolver’ or a ‘Pet Sounds.’

Richard Ashcroft

You can scroll through my iTunes and I’ve got everything. I’ve got Ace Hood, Alt-J, Annie Lennox, Arctic Monkeys, Beanie Sigel, the Beatles, Beth Hart, Big Sean, Bob Dylan, Bon Iver, Chief Keef, Coldplay, the Flaming Lips, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, OutKast, Pet Shop Boys, Peter Gabriel, the Smiths, and the list goes on from there.

Mike Will Made It

I like to listen to the Police, Sting, Queen, Pet Shop Boys.

Mike Will Made It

Every time someone buys a cat or a dog from a breeder or a pet shop, a cat on the streets or in an animal shelter loses his or her chance at finding a good home.

Amy Jackson

We can stop the cycle of animal homelessness and save lives by opening our hearts and homes to a loving cat or dog from an animal shelter instead of buying animals from breeders or pet shops.

Amy Jackson

I do feel like by buying rats from a pet store, you are saving them because if not, they would get fed to a snake or something.

Nikki Reed

The same regions of the brain light up when someone touches their smartphone as when they touch a family member or a pet.

Matt Cohler

There are people all over the world who like to write fan letters in the voice of their pet: ‘Hello, my name is Fifi and I’m a labrador and I think you’re great. Paw paw!’

Rebecca Hall

In their heyday, the Pet Shop Boys were the Interpol of the Eighties, dressing up to sing really weird pop songs about lust and loneliness in the big city. They’re low-pro now, not retro-worshipped in the manner of Depeche Mode, New Order, or The Cure, but you can hear the reason why – these guys are too sad.

Rob Sheffield

People imagine that Netflix sprang fully formed into a global streaming giant, but Netflix might have been personalised sporting goods – or customised shampoo – or even pet food, since these were all ideas that I pitched Reed Hastings in those first months.

Marc Randolph

On ‘Death In Paradise,’ I had a CGI pet lizard and had to react to nothing, which was hideously embarrassing.

Ben Miller

I already have a pet project called Project Shakti and it aims on educating women on menstruation cycle.

Manushi Chhillar

I went to a party when I was a student and they had a mynah bird up in the bedroom where people put their coats. I was completely captivated – I just sat there all night talking to it. The next day I passed a pet shop and they had a conure – it’s a little parakeet – in the window. I bought it, not knowing what it was or how to look after it.

Derren Brown

I hate those articles – this is a pet peeve of mine – like move over X, here’s the new Y. And it’s just like, X didn’t become obsolete because there’s a person doing a similar thing. You also don’t have to be like the new old-thing, you’re just the current you-thing.

Julien Baker

My biggest pet peeve are just girls who go to sports bars who have no intention on caring what teams are playing, like they’re looking for just a night out. That drives me more crazy than anything else. Like, don’t pretend to be a sports fan.

Jerry Ferrara

It is a pet peeve of mine when people throw around arguments citing ‘Fair Use’ and yet fail to actually explain what a fair use argument actually is.

Rachel Sklar

I try not to wear anything I have to fidget with – there’s nothing worse than wearing something and pulling down the hem and re-adjusting the top. My pet hate is when girls wear those strapless dresses and spend the whole night yanking them up.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor

One of our biggest pet peeves is listening to bands that use harmony guitars for the sake of it. If you can’t figure out how do something different than Maiden, UFO, or even Boston, then what’s the point?

Zacky Vengeance

I read very one-note. Teacher’s pet, Goody Two-shoes. I’d hate to be annoying. Who wants to see movies with someone annoying in them? But it’s hard for me to paint myself as anything but whatever it is I come across as – which is pretty together.

Allison Williams

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

Millions of animals are euthanized every year because shelters can’t find homes for them. Buying animals from pet stores also tends to support puppy and cat mills, many of which have deplorable conditions for animals, which shouldn’t be tolerated.

Laura Mennell

I think you can totally be a totally normal kid from the suburbs of Chicago and go off and play shows. It’s one of those things that when you go home, you’re still the nerd you were when you left, and your parents still get to yell at you about cleaning up your room, and your girlfriend still drags you to the pet store.

Patrick Stump

I was ridiculed in public school for being smart. A teacher’s pet.

Julia Glass

Getting onto ‘Jeopardy!’ was a pet project my whole life, so it was something I was willing to work really hard on.

James Holzhauer

Growing up, I had an insane crush on Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys.

Erin O’Connor

This is always one of my big pet peeves is that 65% of NBA players, three years out of the NBA, are broke. I mean, so, maybe maturing a little more on the front end and getting an education might serve you well down the road.

Ben Howland

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with different planets in the solar system, and I used to create, for every single planet, a different alien race with a certain kind of pet, a certain kind of house, a certain kind of water system, and everything. I would draw these pictures. I had hundreds of these pictures in a box.

James Gunn

I’m not about to go out and buy a snake for a pet. I mean, I may have faced a few fears but I’m not insane.

Kristin Davis

I adopted a pet because I have been wanting one for the longest time. In fact, I am really close to Ravi Dubey’s dog Moyo.

Rithvik Dhanjani

We are deeply sorry for the loss of anything – from your luggage to, of course, a loved pet.

Oscar Munoz

Me going out 25 minutes early onto the training ground to practise wasn’t me being teacher’s pet. That is what I have done throughout my career.

Phil Neville

I am so honest that at times people get offended by what I say. In our industry, truth is not really appreciated. I love to be of my own. I try spending quality time with my family, my two very close friends and my pet Liam.

Neeru Bajwa

I’m very into Taylor Swift. From her music to her wardrobe, she is absolutely killing it. Also, she has adorable cats that I would love to pet.

Connor Franta

There is nothing in a name. My husband, Santhosh Menon, called me Navya at first, which I did not like as it was my screen name. He knew me as Navya and found calling me Dhanya strange, so he came up with a pet name.

Navya Nair

The reason I want to be able to teleport is that I don’t like waiting around. It’s one of my pet peeves. I also don’t like traveling, because I don’t like sitting on a plane for six hours, doing nothing, essentially wasting time. You know what would be awesome? Bam, I’m in New York.

Alan Schaaf

There are conventions for people with serious, boring inventions, but fad inventors need help. You need someone to talk to. You just can’t tell your friends you’re going to invent a pet rock and mortgage your house to pay for it. It’s embarrassing… risky mentally. Your friends think you’re crazy.

Ken Hakuta

A true fad has little utility beyond its entertainment value. Think of the Mood Ring, the Pet Rock, the Slinky, Silly Putty.

Ken Hakuta

Speed is vital. You got to strike fast. Fads have short lives, and you got to get what you can – like the case of the Pet Rock.

Ken Hakuta

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

Humans should always exercise and watch what they eat. So with your pet, make sure they get enough exercise, make sure they’re getting fed at the same time every day and getting the nutrition they need. And make sure they get a lot of love and attention you both need. That’s why you have them!

Alison Sweeney

All writers have their own pet commandments.

Darin Strauss

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

I have realized that when you rescue your pet from a shelter, it is the most amazing feeling in the world how this animal changes your life by giving it a better one.

Zak Bagans

My first pet at home in Edinburgh was a dog my dad had called Glen. He was a small sheepdog and went with my dad every day to work as manager of a cooking centre, which made the children’s lunches for schools.

Ronnie Corbett

A lizard is a perfect pet for a model. They only need feeding once a fortnight. And I’m always travelling, so it’s perfect. If I had a dog, it would drop dead of starvation.

Abbey Lee Kershaw

I have more pet peeves than anybody: people talking in the movie theater, people eating in the movie theater loudly, people being rude, people making noise when you’re supposed to be asleep, like drilling noises outside. I could be here all day.

Kate Beckinsale

It’s true, you can never eat a pet you name. And anyway, it would be like a ventriloquist eating his dummy.

Alexander Theroux

My pet peeve is when people criticize things when they’re just trying to have a conversation.

Jeff Baena

Pet Sematary’ is one of my favorite books of Stephen King and I have a deep love relationship with it.

Andy Muschietti

My pet peeve is when people come over to my house, and there are coasters, but they don’t use a coaster.

Chord Overstreet

The kinds of roles dogs fill can be hard to come by in human relationships. We touch the dog or the pet at whim. There is a lack of self-consciousness and a fluidity to it that is absent from most human relationships. If someone acted that way to you, you’d feel claustrophobic pretty quickly. It’s a boundary violation.

Caroline Knapp

People didn’t think animals thought or remembered or had minds! They most certainly do: any pet owner knows more than a lot of scientists about animals.

Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

I saw myself as a teacher’s pet but with a little of Ed Haskell mixed in. I was the teacher’s pet, but that didn’t mean that I was trying to pull one over.

Damon Lindelof

I do have the most adorable little Chihuahua mix. I adopted him about 3 1/2 years ago from Much Love pet adoption, and he has been the love of my life ever since. His name is Beau, or as my sister and I like to call him ‘ mushy mush’ because he truly is just a pile of loving mush that just melts in your arms.

Torrey DeVitto

I brought a Border Collie back home to Vancouver from Wales – where some of my ancestors are from – and needed to challenge him in other ways than just being my pet. So I investigated sheep herding and took a few lessons, and decided I was probably learning more than my dog!

Jane Siberry

We wanted a pet food based on sound scientific principles and truth, not marketing hype.

Dick Van Patten

If I was good each week, my father would take me to a different pet store each Saturday. I had a snake, horny toads, turtles, lizards, rabbits, guinea pigs… I kept my alligator in the bathtub until it got too big.

Dick Van Patten

I used to have a pet crawfish, so my friend made a mold of its claws and bronzed a key chain for me out of it.

Betsy Brandt

If you have a deep-seated need to be loved and admired every day, you shouldn’t be in politics. You should go work at a pet store.

Michael Nutter

I have a little bit of a pet peeve about how the middle class is depicted in movies. I feel like they tend to be either depicted in a very sentimental way, where everybody has a heart of gold except for the villains you’re supposed to hiss at, or there’s a sort of indie-style version… When it’s done well, it’s brilliant, it’s ‘Blue Velvet.’

Greg Mottola

I guess you could say I’m a closeted animal person, because a lot of my life I did it in secrecy. I was always fascinated with exotic animals, particularly reptiles, from the age of 6 when I got a pet tortoise.

Eric Goode

Animal rights can be as extreme as not riding a horse, or not wearing leather, not having a pet at all. Animal welfare advocates are preventing the suffering of animals. And then there’s conservation and species conservation and what conservation biologists do.

Eric Goode

For every book that I write… I develop a history for each person and make sure they are well rounded and flawed. You have to know everything about them from their shoe size, to where they went to school, to what their first pet was, to what they like to eat, to what they want out of life.

Jojo Moyes

We write in ways that, we generally hope, reflect real life, or at least look familiar to humans. And in life, recurring themes are a recurring theme. We never quite conquer a pet vice or a relationship pattern or a communication habit. We’re haunted by our particular demons.

Sara Zarr

I had a big Akita, Yoshi, who was fabulous. I loved him. We lost him when he was 12, and I’ve never been able to replace him. Normally, most people lose a pet and get another and keep going on. But it just felt wrong to me; it felt disloyal.

Robert Crais

Ill-fitted T-shirts stretched over a gut are my pet hate. And if the colour’s faded – ugh.

Joanne Froggatt

I’m such an impulse buyer. I once went into a pet store for dog food and left with a fish tank and five fish. And yes, of course I forgot to buy dog food.

Colton Underwood

I do not believe that I will ever write an adult novel from an animal’s point of view unless someday it becomes suddenly appealing to me to make a narrator a mentally ill pet. Never say never.

Andrea Seigel

My best time to write is right after coffee and breakfast – four eggs – because, full disclosure, I’m really a komodo dragon – and that’s because then I’m energized but not so awake that the critical voice clicks on, the voice that sometimes says, ‘Don’t write that,’ or, ‘Man, that sentence is terrible – you should give up and go pet the cats.’

Jeff Vandermeer

I’ve been lucky. I’ve made films that I really like. It’s been a combination of what comes to me and what I choose. I’ve gone after lots of things that I didn’t get, pet projects that everybody ends up chasing after. Really, you’re lucky if you get anything.

Hope Davis

My mom didn’t believe in putting chemicals in hair. But when I got to college, we didn’t have A/C in our dorms freshman year. So after several days of waking up looking like a Chia Pet, I was like ‘OK, I’m gonna get a perm.’ And then my hair revolted and fell out. I was over that quick, fast and in a hurry.

Keshia Knight Pulliam

Once they become AKC registered, the newspapers will become flooded with ads for them. And you’ll see Border collies in pet stores and animal shelters.

Donald McCaig

Though each trainer believes his or her method is best, I don’t think it matters which method the pet owner adopts so long as that owner finds a capable mentor and sticks with the training. Eventually you will learn to see your dog, and when that happens, the richness of your and your dog’s lives will tell you what to do next.

Donald McCaig

When I was pregnant with my first child, I was 35 years old, and I was working in a pet shop.

Ann Dowd

As a child, the most important people in my life were my pet rabbit and Mary, mother of Jesus.

Sean Scully

I could never date a guy with a pet snake.

Genesis Rodriguez

You can get too bogged down in technology and you can sort of forget what it is you were trying to do. And with the Pet Shop Boys it’s primarily about the songs, it’s about song writing.

Chris Lowe

Children are my pet cause. I have a foster child in El Salvador, and whenever I’m home, I work for the Adam Walsh Foundation, which finds missing children. I also do some hospital visits and other things for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Jane Badler

There are things that I invented – the creaky geriatric robot that is always grumpy, for example, or the little wheelie guy, he’s not in the Hasbro lore. But kids love that stuff – this little guy as a pet on a chain. They gravitate towards it.

Michael Bay

We all have our pet things that we like to get religious about.

Max Cannon

Pet lovers know that animals sometimes understand us better than we do, and the annals of human sin and desire provide plenty of stories to drive the point home.

Tony Snow

I have never been a pet lover or really craved the idea of having dogs.

Kratika Sengar

My idea of a perfect pet is a really, really big dog! Huge!

Emily VanCamp

The government needs to help those in need, but members of Congress shouldn’t take advantage of the situation and use a national tragedy as an opportunity to spend taxpayer dollars on their pet projects.

Chris Chocola

I always want to try to make films feel timeless, because one of my biggest pet peeves is that there’s a movie you love, and then you revisit it twenty years later, you show your kid or something, and it’s like, ‘Oh my God!’ with hairstyles and clothing and all that kind of stuff.

Francis Lawrence

If the Beastie Boys and the Beach Boys and Pet Shop Boys can stay boys, so can we.

Howie Dorough

Having a pet spayed or neutered actually extends its lifespan by a few years and reduces any aggressive traits or tendencies.

Suzy Shuster

I spent a lot of time in the White House in the public areas where reporters are allowed to go, but I spoke to people about the private quarters as well. Some of the things I learned were small, novelistic details. For example, the fact that there were still pet stains on the carpets from the Bush cats when the Obamas moved in.

Jodi Kantor

We are telling veterans they must sacrifice to pay for the pet projects and contracts to campaign donors of powerful members of Congress.

Nick Lampson

One of my biggest pet peeves is well-dressed designers. If you spend that much time thinking about your own clothes, you’re not spending enough time thinking about what you’re designing.

Joseph Altuzarra

People were a little leery when I was doing the press for my last album ‘Rumble Doll,’ yes. It’s always that thing that this is a dilettante or a pet project.

Patti Scialfa

I was very short. Everybody else was two years older in my class, and I had curly hair and was teacher’s pet.

Howard Stringer

My biggest pet peeve is when people don’t admit what they’ve done.

Daniela Bobadilla

I was raised in a strict Southern household in Lexington, South Carolina, and I remember sneaking off to watch ‘Pet Cemetery’ as a kid. After seeing those animals reincarnate, I screamed and couldn’t sleep for weeks, but watched it again and again.

Jessica Stroup

People buy a cat and think, ‘Oh that’s a beautiful collar. I’ll put that on,’ but that doesn’t make them a responsible pet owner.

Celia Hammond

All I want in life is to pet my dog and cat. After that, all I want to do is post photos of them. Mostly because they’re the cutest things ever, but also because I don’t have to worry about how ugly I look in the photo.

Cazzie David

I started keeping track of my pet peeves and so far have counted over 160… but to pick one: muffins. They’re imposters. They think they’re breakfast food, but really, they are just terrible cupcakes.

Aubrey Peeples

I was in New York and I walked into this pet store and came out with a dog.

Beverley Mitchell

I would say I don’t like people who are really into themselves or are very materialistic. Just always talking themselves up. Not being real is the pet peeve. Be true to yourself.

Austin Stowell

Chadron had a water tower, grain elevators, a tanning salon, a video rental store, a small liberal arts college, a Hardee’s, a stoplight, and a curling yellow sign in the pet store window that read, ‘Hamsters and Tarantulas Featured Today.’

Poe Ballantine

I was in three academic clubs, a huge book worm and the teacher’s pet. I was kind of an easy target for bullies.

Nicole Gale Anderson

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

A move to a different town or school gives us new places to explore, new people to meet; a lost pet means we have to organize a careful search; baby-sitting requires looking out for dangers a young child can’t foresee; a car crash or fire demands that we get help immediately.

Jim Murphy

Our cat is kind dove shellfish, and thinks the world is hers, She finds a comfy spot and then we pet turtle sheep purrs.

Brian P. Cleary

I have this pet thing about how global communications are moving so fast now, throwing information at you, making everything available to you, and yet I feel it’s leaving us more and more isolated.

Mike Rutherford

I’m a fan of the old ‘Creature Features’ like ‘Critters,’ and ‘Gremlins’ and ‘Tremors.’ ‘Jaws’ is classic. It’s funny that I still like those films because I remember my mom would tease me about getting a pet Critter to keep under my bed.

Brooke Nevin

I’m a writer who stacks cat food for a living. It’s true: I have a master’s degree in creative writing, I’ve published two critically successful books, and I get paid to replenish the shelves of my local food co-op with pet food, sponges and toilet paper. Nine days out of 10, I do it quite happily.

Ali Liebegott

To this day I don’t ever remember seeing a pet inside Moscow, I never saw anyone carrying a dog, or leading a dog. Err I finally saw a, a pet some years later in Kiev, so I thought that life must have been, different.

Ralph Boston

I don’t have a pet, but I dream of someday getting a pug dog whom I will name Croque Monsieur so that I may alternate between calling him Croque, Monsieur or his full name: Croque Monsieur. I’ll more than likely only use his first and last name most often when he’s been bad.

John Gallagher, Jr.

And I strongly believe people should rescue dogs, or, at the very least, listen to Bob Barker and have your pet spayed or neutered.

Justin Chambers

One of my biggest pet peeves is that I just don’t like it when characters do things that are funny to the writer, but you don’t know why they’re doing it and it doesn’t make any sense.

Glenn Howerton

Teach your children how to behave with animals. Adopt a pet. Don’t go buy one. Please. That’s a sin. Let’s get these puppy mills out of business.

Shelley Morrison

I always pet a dog with my left hand because if he bit me I’d still have my right hand to paint with.

Juan Gris

I’m no one’s pet, and I intend to be an independent voice in the U.S. Senate.

Chris Coons

What is Pet?

A pet, or a companion animal, is an animal that is kept solely for the enjoyment or company of a individual rather than as a working animal, livestock or laboratory animal.

Popular pets are often considered to have attractive appearances, intelligence and relatable personalities, but some pets may be taken in on an altruistic basis (such as a stray animal) and accepted by the owner irrespective of these features.
