Sometimes it is hard to find the right words when dealing with the loss of your beloved pet. We have compiled a list of quotes and poems for horses, dogs and cats that we think are particularly beautiful.


Horse Quotes and Poems

There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
Some paradise where horses go,
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again.

Cat Quotes and Poems

He blinks upon the hearth-rug,
and yawns in deep content,
accepting all the comforts
that Providence has sent.
Louder he purrs, and louder,
in one glad hymn of praise
for all the night’s adventures,
for quiet, restful days.
Life will go on for ever,
with all that cat can wish:
warmth and the glad procession
of fish and milk and fish.
Only-the thought disturbs him-
he’s noticed once or twice,
the times are somehow breeding
a nimbler race of mice.
~Alexander Gray
