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.

My big white boxer fell into my koi pond and sat down. Then he just looked at the fish.

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.

Might as well have posted an article about why “Hammers are better than a cold beer on a hot day”. Talk about an apples to flashlight comparison.

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.
