The answer was ... kind of a lot. Okay, really a lot.
And I decided to save them all and wait to post them some day when folks needed some cheer. So today I picked a set that might amuse thingswithwings since she is sick today, and then threw in some more picked by a randomizer to make a giant post of famous people and animals.
So! Under the cut you will such seminal works of artistic genius as "Adele (and a dog)," "Alison Bechdel (and a cat)," "Bettie Davis (and a cat)," "Billie Holiday (and a dog)," "Gloria Estefan (and a box full of puppies)," "Esha Deol (and two puppies)," "Gertrude Stein and Alice B Toklas (and a dog)," "Ian McKellen (and a dog)," "Jessica Hsuan (and some dogs)," "Sigourney Weaver (and a cat)," and more. A lot more. Including playing the game "how many Doctor Who actors can eruthros find pictures of holding animals?"
This is just a random(ish) selection of pics - I'll post another swath some other time when I'm bored or need an emergency kitten infusion.
I don't actually know most of these people (except by name) and I'm bad at faces even for people I know, so I am basically taking the internet's word on all of these pictures and wikipedia's word on what names people go by. If I've got the wrong name for someone, please let me know!
I am also up for iconing any of these - just drop a comment if there are a couple you want icons of.
