Many people think that a cat is more exotic and fancy but I am here to inform you that you shouldn’t believe a word those crazy cat lovers say because dogs make the world go round here are 10 reasons why dogs are better then cats.

1.  You can train a dog better than a cat. Have you ever seen a cat sit on command? Roll over on command? Stay? Neither have I.

2.  Dogs are smarter. Have you ever seen a dog fall into a fish tank? I haven’t either.

3.  A dog can protect your home much better than a cat.

4.   Dogs are better suited to lead you to a more active lifestyle. Have you ever seen anyone walk their cat?

5. There are a lot of things cats will jump up on that dogs won’t. The cat I had for a month would NOT get off my computer keyboard. Dogs won’t do that. I’ve also seen cats up on kitchen counters. Your dog also won’t climb a tree.

6. Dogs are much more fun to play with than cats.

7. A dog knows when you’re sad. And he’ll try to comfort you. Cats don’t care how you feel, as long as you remember where the can opener is.

8. Dogs will wake you up if the house is on fire. Cats will quietly sneak out the back door.

9. Dogs are Happy. Dogs think your the best person in the world even if you are grumpy, when you come home from school or work your Dogs will be there licking your face and jumping around and they cant wait to see you, while cats don’t notice if you are there or not as long as they get their food.

10. Dogs Listen. When you talk to dogs they will make faces and tilt there head and try to work out what your saying while cats just meow and walk away.

Years ago, I read a newspaper comic strip—I think it was Rick O’Shay—in which a cat watched in horror as a dog owner issued a series of commands to his pet. He ordered him to “sit,” “beg,” “roll over,” “heel,” etc.—and the dog obeyed without question.

“Poor dog,” thought the kitty. “He’ll never make it as a cat.”

Seriously my wife did train two cats to Sit and speak. When she fed the dog he had to do that and he got fed first. After a month of watching him they caught on.

Ten reasons cats are better than dogs:

#1: No barking at all hours of the day and night for no apparent reason.

#2: Keep to our own schedule. Just put the food down and leave for a few days. No worries.

#3: Don't need to be walked. What is this with walks, anyway? Why do dogs need permission to take a walk, and have to have a human along?

#4: No fancy toys. Ever seen a cat with a ball launcher? No way, it would be an insult to our dignity!

#5: Cleanliness This is a big one for us cats. We are fastidious groomers. We clean our own ears, coats, paws, and private parts.

#6: Are friends with our humans Speaking of self-respect, when is the last time you saw a cat bow to a human? We don't slobber all over them, cater to their every whim, or rely on them to give us everything we need socially.

#7: Can live just about anywhere We all know dogs, even the smaller varieties, need places to run around, their own yard preferably, and parks or walking areas nearby, as well as places to do their business. Cats are much more compact.

#8: Don't destroy the house Ok, so we scratch. So, get us a scratching post and keep our nails trimmed. At least we don't go through the trash, shred papers, take your dirty laundry and tear it up, or make messes on the nicely-made bed if we stay inside all day.

#9: Can do tricks So, you think that a plus to having dogs is that they do tricks? We cats can do tricks for humans, too. Aunt Tabby puts her paw up to ask to be petted, and we all come, sit and lie down on command. You have to be patient, but we can learn all the tricks any dog can do. We just might not do them all the time for you.

#10: Cats are cuter I know this is subjective, but aren't we just the cutest things? Our humans certainly think so! Much better than those slobbery, smelly, whiney, dog things.

(ps - I own both a cat and a dog, a border collie)

Your dog also won’t climb a tree.

My Treeing Walker Hound begs to differ. If there's a coon or possum up there, she's going to try to climb the tree, and sometimes succeeds a short way. But, never over head high, she's not stupid. Just very intensely into it, lol.

No. Cats are MUCH Better then dogs....there is no comparison....cats don’t smell, are quiet, clean, don’t drool...are dainty with their food, poop in one place AND COVER IT, intelligent, kill rodents, don’t need to be let in and out 10 times a day...I could go on and on.

Well, this poster certainly stirred up the beehive!

We had two adorable dogs (Norwegian Elkhounds) who unfortunately passed away several years ago.

We have now three cats. One is (jokingly) our “illegal Canadian immigrant”.

(When my step daughter got married, she found out her Canadian husband was allergic to cats... thus, we inherited the cat.)

The other two were born under our house. The sister was a good-looking tabby, so I went out, caught the cat, and brought it inside.

Her brother was a street cat, who was not part of all this.

Anyway, a year or so later I would be sitting on the front porch and I saw the brother circling around the porch... closer and closer every night.
One night, he came up on the porch, sat down, looked up at me, and “said”:
“OK, what do we do now”?

I guess we adopted the sister, and the brother adopted us!

I walked inside, and he followed me and has been here ever since.

Yes, they most certainly are independent (as we know from breaking up “cat fights” from time to time).

I still like to point out to people that:

“Dogs have masters...
Cats have staff”

Rudyard Kipling has a fun short story about this.

The *only* reason necessary for “why dogs are better than cats”:

They’re NOT cats.

However, dogs don’t get shot for climbing on cars and scratching the paint in the process.

Or “marking” anything and every thing, indoors and outdoors.

(Ahem) Folks who think cats don’t welcome you home never owned one. They will wait for you at the door, and almost rub the skin off your legs welcoming you back. And the purring...pure love.

As far as training, my last cat was such a good boy. If he looked like he was scrunching his butt down to jump on the counter, all I had to do was make eye contact and say “no” firmly. He would argue a bit with me, LOL, and I might have to say it a few more times. But he listened.

However....I DO love dogs, too.

For a five mile stretch on RT 40 this past Friday, *everybody* had their cars broken into and a lot of stuff stolen, even when the cars were parked near houses with lights on.

The neighbor just a hundred yards away at the end of my lane got hit.

Our unlocked vehicles were untouched, with iPads, GPS units and iPhones in them.

Why?

A big ass EuroDobe watches out the window, 24/7.

And he did bark but I never bothered to get up and see why.

Out of the dozens of people hit, we’ve still got our stuff.

Thank God dogs BARK.

"Your dog also won’t climb a tree."

When growing up we had a German Shepard that would climb a tree on to the limbs of a tree to go after cats. She would jump up on top of a 6 foot block wall and walk along the top of the wall daily. She would climbed a ladder to get to the roof. She hated cats which is another story.

She would look both ways before crossing the street which was interesting to watch in itself because she didn't stay in the backyard she just roamed the neighborhood. Friends seen her avoid dogcatchers like it was no problem.

Some cats do smell, they can be noisy, they can make a mess of their food (ever seen a cat "kill" kibble?), poop on the comforter (or rug), look at rodents in disgust ("Eww...what's that? You expect *me* to take care of that?), meow to be let out ten times a day.

Also, a cat won't bury the evidence, unless *you* are the evidence. :-)

Am sure you will get a laugh from this one:

Why Some Men Have a Dog And No Wife:

1. The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you.

2. Dogs don’t notice if you call them by another dog’s name.

3. Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.

4. A dog’s parents never visit.

5. Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across.

6. Dogs find you amusing when you’re drunk..

7. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.

8. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, “If I died, would you get another dog?”

9. If a dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper and give them away.

10. A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.

11. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don’t get mad. They just think it’s interesting.

And last, but not least:

12. If a dog leaves, it won’t take half of your stuff.

To test this theory:
Lock your wife and your dog in the garage for an hour.
Then open it and see who’s happy to see you.
