Cracked.com ^ | 3/15/11 | Christina H

Posted on 03/14/2012 8:26:12 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

It seems like there's been a never-ending argument between certain "dog people" and "cat people," which seems pretty crazy considering how most of us can agree that dogs and cats are both cute and both make good image macros.

A lot of people just seem really invested in proving for whatever reason that one group is better than the other, which is plain silly for a number of reasons.

I’ve had both in my house. I love both dogs and cats. I don’t like picking up after dogs, and Mrs. Henkster is not fond of the litterbox. But otherwise they are both fine.

Ha! Debating whether a dog or cat is the best pet is like debating whether a carrot or cabbage is the best cut of beef.

I have 8 cats, 2 dogs, and 1 nephew. The kid is much messier than the ‘other’ animals, hands down.

I don’t like picking up after dogs,

Dogs are great, until it's 3 A.M., there's a few feet of snow & still falling, the wind is gusting 50 MPH, the temp is -10F, and the dog is howling to go for a walk. Your wife should be happy cats use a litter-box!

There is no argument or debate.

Cats are like rodents compared to loyal dogs like the German Shepherd.

Okay, I’ll be serious. We have 6 dogs, 4 cats, a bird, a horse and a mule. Oh, and a bunch of rabbits. The rabbits are furry protein, not pets.

Oh my goodness that is the cutest picture!

Very amusing thread.

I am enjoying seeing Cee Lo Green with his kitteh on The Voice, it is one mushy kitty, it probably cost a mint and clearly it knows it was worth every penny.

I had a little 4# Chihuahua-poodle mix that would not respond to any name I called her. Until the day I said, “Well, you silly dog: Maybe you think you’re a cat!” Then I said, “Here kitty!” And she came running.

She was a really sweet little dog.

The war between dog people and cat people will end when the war between dogs and cats ends.
