Animal
 
  Animals are such agreeable friends; they ask no questions, pass no criticisms.
George Eliot.

  If ’t were not for my cat and dog, I think I could not live.
Ebenezer Elliott.

  They rejoice each with their kind, lion with lioness, so fitly them in pairs thou hast combined.
Milton.

                    Let cavillers deny
That brutes have reason; sure ’tis something more,
’Tis heaven directs, and stratagems inspires
Beyond the short extent of human thought.
Somerville.

Ruskin.
