Dogs Are Better Than Cats and Here Are 12 Videos to Prove it
Metro UK ^ | Thursday 24 Oct 2013

Posted on 10/24/2013 12:15:01 PM PDT by nickcarraway

It’s the age-old question: what’s better, a cat or a dog? Surely there can only be one winner in the domestic animal personality competition.

The answer is obvious: dogs are far superior. But if you’re not convinced, allow YouTube to argue the case…

1. You can’t play hide and seek with a cat

The cat would obviously just use the opportunity to go and find new humans who didn’t try and engage them in such childishness.

2. Cats are glass-half-empty kind of creatures

Dogs think the thing that is happening right now is the BEST THING THAT’S EVER HAPPENED.

Cats don’t wake you up barking at the slightest external noise.

Cats make a great pillow.
Dogs are man's best friend.

Both different as God could only make them. Both are wonderful creatures only dogs are FAR more useful.

Who doesn't have a favorite pillow???

I think, over my lifetime, I’ve had a different dog that would do each of those things! What a pile of memories!

Thanks!

I think my chow chow is a much better pillow than a cat. A better pillow than a pillow in fact. Last night as I finally headed to bed, she was sound asleep, streteched out across the headboard having pushed my pillows aside, so I just grabbed her instead and off to sleep I was. I don’t even think she woke up until morning.

All this pro-dog, anti-cat prattle is sheer rubbish! My two kittehs are great playmates...I play chase, hide and seek, “spy”, and they post love to box and scrap with me. These dog people hate cats because “they aren’t dogs”, pure and simple. A pet, be it a cat, or dog, will reward your love and attention with play and love “right back at ya”. Many of these same dog people have never really interacted with any cats they’ve ever been around, or just never had a cat as a pet, otherwise they’d know different.

True. The cat I had several years ago would decide to go on a chase/run from one end of the house to the other, jump on the bed and take off toward the living room, back and forth, back and forth -- around 3 a.m.

If I shut the bedroom door, it was "Meow meow meowwwwwww meow meow MEOW MEOWWWWWWW."

I have had, equally, and mostly at the same time, DOGS AND CATS! So please, if you MUST give me a label, say I have loved and enjoyed them for their separate and distinct traits and personalities! I gave them the love and respect that was due to each critter and I never held back on either.

Chow chow probably LOVES it!

Superior overall, but hardly far superior.

Want to check out videos of dog attacks? I challenge you to find a similar video for a cat.

Generally you are probably right.

I’ve been a dog person all my life, but having had a feline guest for a few months last winter, I can see why people love cats as much as dogs. VERY cool little character! We’ve decided that there’s a kitty in our future (amazingly, the pups concur) one of these days. They’re different, but better is in the eye of the beholder.

The smartest, sweetest, funniest, most beautiful & ADORABLE critter in the whole world, ever- is yours, dog(s) or cat(s). And that’s exactly the way it should be.

Three rabid cats bit a bunch of people locally in the last couple weeks.

Haven’t heard of a case in a dog in decades.

Think I prefer the possible “dog attacks”, thanks.

Rabid animals don’t count. Besides, outside the disease, they were probably incapable of killing. I can’t even conceive a cat having the sheer will to destroy a human, attacking continuously, even though I have personally known a demonic cat.

Nope, dogs are much more capable of evil. See it as Jekyll & Hyde for the species.

“Nope, dogs are much more capable of evil.”

Seriously?

“Evil”?

As in premeditated, conscious, intentional EVIL with malice aforethought?

Seriously?

Sweet post.

I love most animals, and the rivalry thing distresses me to death. I have no illusions about any of them, but I still love them much regardless of shortcomings (real, not mythical by haters).

Some dogs, yes. If a cat can be naturally evil (well, that might have been the abuse at a tiny age, who knows) so can a dog.

It’s rare, but there. More common are unstable untrustworthy dogs. Some are just incorrigible. And much more dangerous than a cat, at decent sizes.

Evil implies sin and a conscious choice to commit sin, knowing the difference between good and evil.

Animals cannot sin.

They suffer the effects of a fallen world but they do not and can not sin, nor can they be “evil”.

Evil is a choice reserved solely for humans.

[although a cat joyously, slowly and meticulously dismembering some small animal could be said to offer a fair imitation of ‘evil’]
