Do dogs and cats go to heaven?

I have heard people claim both. My question is if there is actual holy texts that conclusively state something like this in any religion.

My thoughts are if there is nothing explicitly against it then if heaven is a perfect world and your pets help complete you as a person then they would probably be there yes?

As far as I know, the Bible says no.

If you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and you're not ashamed, put this in your signature.

If I can't play with Nestor or Duchess after I die, it's not a heaven I want to go to.

It's easy to claim that a thing is self-evident when you've already convinced yourself that it is.

I have it on good authority that all dogs go to heaven.

Do you have anything flashier? I want something that says "I own this room. I own you."

Pirates are forbidden here, unless you are of the Church of the FSM.

And I sure as hell know you ain't, Googa.

Indeed, most cats I've come into contact with absolutely hate Jews.

In response to the thread, I doubt that most people who you've heard "claim" that dogs and cats go to heaven actually believe that to be true. Generally, in my experience, it's said in order to console children (or I guess sometimes adults) when they have lost a pet.

They're not to fond of tall, Japanese high school girls, either.
