It is a common idea that everyone is a dog person or a cat person.
You’re either drawn to dogs or drawn to cats,….there is no in-between.
In early modern Europe pets were portrayed in art as faithful and loving companions. Artists also used cats and dogs as metaphors in religious and allegorical scenes. Typically, dogs symbolized loyalty while cats represented deceit; together, these foils embodied good versus evil. Yet due to the layering of iconographic meaning onto each creature over many centuries, we find cats and dogs variously represented as friend or foe, sacred or sinful, regal or scrappy. It was for the artist to choose from a bevy of specific, diverse meanings what applied to the pets they portrayed.
Leonardo da Vinci, keen observer of the natural world and a major cat lover said, “The smallest feline is a masterpiece.”
