dogs are the best

im an animal lover and adore them all.
ive had both as pets and have had both nasty cats and dumb dogs.
ive also had sweet, loving cats and amazingly bright, affectionate and wonderful dogs.
personally, if i had to choose having one over the other i'd take dogs, because im what you'd call a dog person. i do enjoy them more, i like to play with my pets and watch them run around and be stupid.
but i still think cats can offer a lot and if you get a good one, can be a very rewarding friend

I have 4 cats and 2 dogs. I love them all, but one of my kitties (Whiskers) has been my best friend for the past 12 years (we found her in our yard when I was 8 years old). She is a little best friend.

I'm defintely not a cat person... I dont HATE them, just not a fan. I've never had one, but also never had a good interaction with them really either. I do admit that my brother's girlfriend's cat is pretty cool. I think there's just something about them doing their business in a box inside that grosses me out.

I am on the other hand a huge dog person. I havent been able to have a dog since I moved out on my own 5 years or so ago... since it's hard finding apts that allow them etc. I cant WAIT until the day that I am able to get another one.

Dogs and Cats are both cool

I have one cat and two dogs and I love them both

That is the great thing about both is that they give unconditional love.

I am a cat person.

If dogs behave, I like them too.

I think God put Cat and Dogs on the Earth to see
their owners would get along..
Right now God is pulling his/her hair out over our performance.

ok, generally speaking, people are either cat people or dog people. my observations:
the animals:
cats are are sneaky, unfriendly, unplayful pains in the ass. and their litter smells like shit.
dogs, so what if you have to walk them and feed them from the table when they beg? they rule: playful, obiedient, loyal, protectful, and damn fun to just play around with.
Sometimes I feel alone in my siding with dogs!
You hit the nail on the head with that description!

cats are rarely happy to see you when you walk in the door
They just don't exude the love and loyalty dogs do!

my two beagles back home are the BEST!! Even after being away from home for months and coming home for a breif visit they're STILL happy to see me, they remember me! it makes me happy. they cheer me up when I am sad

Now like anything there are exceptions...some cats are nice. But this is as rare as dodo's

I've never owned a cat, but my friends always have cats. they are not friendly, the litter box stinks, and I can't hang out in they're apartment for longer than 10 minutes before my eyes start to itch, my nose runs, and my chest begins to close up from the cat dander.
I've owned 3 dogs, and they always rule, because I had COOL ones; run around, lick your face, chase the ball, bark at strangers, and they always fall for the fake throw the ball gag.

I guess it depends on what kind you get.
for example, sicy looks like she got hers from satan.

I have a whole theory on this subject.

Cats are like humans as humans are naturally. Dogs are like humans as humans wish to view themselves.

Cats are completely independent, aloof if they choose to be, and totally self-centered...and they're not ashamed of it. They will come when you call only because THEY have decided to do so. Everything revolves around them. And quite frankly, that is how humans would behave if given the option and if they weren't socialized to consider others.

Dogs on the other hand are seen as being "loyal" and faithful and are willing to submit their personalities and wishes to the desires and whims of their owners. We would like to claim that this makes them more "human"'s best friend and all that. But in actuality, we are not like that naturally.

So in summation, you hate the thing that mirrors your true self the closest. Thus more people cannot stand cats because they cannot stand to see their "bad" qualities of selfishness reflected back at them. Truly enlightened people of course can look beyond this and appreciate these animals for their independence and individuality.

And that is my theory.

I think there are a lot of popular misconceptions about cats that people who have never owned a cat entertain.

I have had 5 cats in total, 3 of which live with me now. Their litter box doesn't stink, partly because the two big ones go outside, but most importantly because I use good litter and keep it clean. When people come into my house, they can't smell that I have a cat, let alone three of them.

As for behaviour, all three are sweet, loving cats, as were my two previous cats. All three greet me at the door when I come home, and one of them faithfully follows me to the bus stop and comes to meet me there again when I come home from work. She will also come running to say hello when she sees me on my bike, or when my boyfriend arrives in his car.

Also, all three of them love to follow me around the house when I'm cleaning, doing the laundry etc.

Now are you going to tell me that 5 out of 5 cats is a fluke? Rare as a dodo indeed.

Asstrap, everytime my cat hears my car pull up she comes running to greet me.

And JOFO no wonder you hate them, you're allergic.
And those arent my cats.. although they look like they would be mine dont they.

This is my cat sasha. She'll still kick your ass though.

I prefer cats to dogs.

Small, barking dogs annoy me.
