People and Other Animals

The relationship between people and the pets amuses me.


As a person who shares a home with two cats, I know that we can never really own a cat and that our friendship is strictly on their terms.

These two look so content in each other’s company.



This lady is so besotted with the cat that she is leaving her very comfortable life behind to be with it.

Sometimes pets look like their owners, sometimes they don’t. This is something that has begun to fascinate me, recently. My morning walk often takes me past people who are walking their dogs, and I can’t help but consider whether a particular pairing is a yes or a no, in my view…

These two are definitely a ‘no’
