Cat-Friend vs Dog-Friend

If your friends acted like your pets, you might not keep them around.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I submit this video provides incontrovertible evidence that it is DOGS who do, in fact, rule.

In all fairness, I suppose the KITTYPING list has every right to bolster a defense in support of their kittehs. ;)

Dogs only THINK they rule.

That’s how cats keep them under control. Brilliant!

Dogs are conservatives: they are loyal to family and friends.

Cats are liberals: they expect everyone else to clean up after them and bend to their every demand.

:-D

LMAO! Great video.

BUT, as someone who loves both dogs and cats but is at heart a cat person, I say this:

Folks who think cats don’t show affection never arrived home to a little cat face waiting at the door for you, waiting to wind itself around your legs, purring.

“Note which friend does NOT smell your butt.”

But they have no problem with sticking theirs on your nose.

Didn’t you ever roll over at night and get big old face full of cat butt?

(I love my cats in spite of them)

“True, but it is known to lick its own.”

My wife tried to get me to eat pumpkin ice cream. I adamantly refused, as I firmly believe that vegetables do not belong in ice cream.

In her efforts to defend pumpkin ice cream she said (pointing to the cat licking her dish) “Oscar likes it!”

To which I replied “He also licks his own (butt). And you want me to trust his taste in ice cream?”

If nothing else kitties in the house keep life interesting and fun!

I thought the video was pretty close to the mark, loved it when the cat-man walked all over the dog-man and the owner on the couch and all over the newspaper. I've got a pair like that myself(And when I'm not looking, they cuddle.)

As much as they are different, there's much that is the same, they both know how to manipulate me to get what they want.

They do it for the same reason they do it while you are at the top of the stairs. They want you to trip break your neck, and die, so they can eat you.

Actually it’s dogs who constantly need care. They are truly on welfare. Cats you give a bit of water and food and a litter box and they take care of themselves for several days.

I hesitate to use the stereotype that dogs listen and obey - but if they do, that doesn’t bode too well for conservatism. Cats are unquestionably independent.

Ha! My little cat face waits and lurks for me; jumping out to bite my legs and cause me to fall, then retreating under the bed, hiding behind the spread causing the spread to vibrate from her GIGGLING fiendishly (she does!!). I used to call her, “Lambchop!” until the neighbors across the way starting hooting and laughing uproariously at me. So, all things considered, her name is BRUTUS. - She loves the outdoors and the dogs; is a wildcat.

Au contraire, mon frere!

CATS ARE REPUBLICANS AND DOGS ARE DEMOCRATS

“I know it may be upsetting for many of you to discover the animal you cherish is of the opposite political party.

Would former President Bill Clinton ever be able to admit to himself that the late Socks was a Republican? Could Democrats ever bring themselves to forgive Checkers, the dog – and a Democrat – who belonged to Richard M. Nixon and whose mention in the famous 1952 “Checkers speech” helped save Nixon’s political career?

When cats are born, they believe they are in a state of liberty, and from then on they are determined to keep it that way. No one tells them what to do. They don’t believe it takes a village, because they know they might have to take instructions from the village idiot in the local government.

And, sorry if you’ve got one and you’re a Republican — but dogs are liberal Democrats. Some are possibly Socialists, though probably none will ever admit it.

Dogs are communal by nature. They run in packs. They dream of their days as wolves, sharing responsibilities.

Sure there’s a pecking order – an alpha, a beta and a zeta. It’s only humans who pretend that egalitarianism levels the playing field entirely.

Unfortunately, this instinct to subvert their personal welfare to the good of the whole also makes dogs easy to control. Big brother, in the form of their human masters, creates laws and executive orders that dogs slavishly abide.

Canines want rules and regulations to follow. If you could teach them to read and talk, they’d be carrying Mao’s Little Red Book and citing its verses.

They show little initiative. A dog is not particularly entrepreneurial and would never start a small business. If he did, he’d let you tax it at confiscatory rates — as long as you gave him a treat.

The best you can do with a dog is train him to work on an assembly line, doing the same trick, time after time. He’s a natural proletarian, waiting for his union card to come through.

Dogs will also happily take a government job.

Dogs were very excited when President George W. Bush created the Department of Homeland Security. They were more than ready to sniff for bombs or protect secure government sites, that sort of thing. One even signed up for the raid that took out Bin Laden.

But dogs also want to save the world generally. They’re bleeding heart liberals.

Some, you may have noticed, are community organizers, herding sheep and other creatures of the field into groups for the betterment of their welfare.

Many dogs eagerly sign up each year for government programs to assist the blind. And who ever heard of a cat running into burning building to save their owner?

Which brings us back to cats.

Have you ever tried to get a cat to do something? Anything at all? Out of pure principle, they will reject your command — even if they know full well it will benefit them.

Because above all else, above even their personal welfare, cats value freedom.

How else to explain that cats will spend all day looking out the window, but then if you put a leash on them to take them out, they’ll drop to the floor and scowl at you as if you were the worst thing possible —perhaps an auditor from the Internal Revenue Service.

While we’re on the topic, cats would never pay taxes. Taxes are for suckers, they’d tell you.

But put a leash on the dog, and he’ll happily trot out the door and go wherever you take him.

This is really why cats hiss at dogs – not because dogs chase them.

My cats watch me endlessly throwing a tennis ball for my border collie – supposedly the smartest dog – and sneer with contempt. Such mindless obedience to a task. Such desperation to please. Disgusting.

Unlike dogs, cats have not had the ability to hunt breed out of them. I mean dogs can hunt, but only to chase their prey up a tree.

Cats finish the job. They are natural proponents of the Second Amendment. If they could get their paws around a trigger, they’d shoot to kill. Dogs are born skeet shooters - fishermen who throw their catch back in the lake.

What’s more, cats would gladly enforce the death penalty. Particularly for dogs.

Cats favor a foreign policy that is so assertive they sometimes need to be declawed. Dogs run together in a U.N.-style “dog park,” where they willingly submit to an overseeing body of owners whom they charge with keeping the peace.

But cats are to the left of dogs when it comes to the environment. Just watch how they carefully cover up their business in their sandboxes, keeping everything fresh and nice. Dogs will – how shall we say – pollute right in your front lawn.

This doesn’t make dogs Republicans or cats Democrats. It just means that sometimes they can see the other side’s point.

Which of course makes them each wiser than their elected representatives in Washington.

Brutus-—I love that name! I’m going to file that away for future felines.

I don’t mind the bites at all...I used to have a big gray-striped tomcat who loved prey games. All I had to do was make eye contact with him and start to back away slowly; he would get that crazy-intent look in his eyes and tense up. Then I picked up the pace a little, still backing, and finally I ran. My little tiger took off after me, and my legs got killed every time.

I wish I could hear your cat giggle, LOL.
