Skip to comments.Dogs Vs. Cats: Which Makes the Best Pet?
Posted on 01/18/2014 8:29:05 AM PST by Perdogg
It's an old question, and to some a first-date necessity: Are you a dog person or a cat person? In their respective roles as both work animals and pets (and sometimes even gods), dogs and cats have lived alongside humans for thousands of years. Meanwhile, the persistent dogs versus cats comparison has been running a parallel course.

My cat is as affectionate as a dog, but I don’t have to walk her. I have the best of both worlds.
I’m sitting here looking at our cat. It’s gotta be a dog.
Cats tend to soil the neighbors' yards. Of course, there are solutions for that.
My wife and I have 3 dogs, and Akita, Blue Heeler, and a Siberian Husky (mine), plus 5 cats. Cats are sneaky,both hog the bed. Great companions though.
If want to go hunting with them, or if you need a cheap and effective alarm system, or want to play some sort of active game outside with them that involves running or long distances then dogs are the better choice.
If you want a companion you can easily carry to cuddle on the couch with or to play small games with inside, or need a cheap mouse trap, and don't like being slobbered on or having you or your guests crotches attacked then a cat is a better choice.
This is the difference between cats and dogs.
Cats and dogs are both nice but I have to say I like dogs better. Cats are easier because you can go off and leave them with plenty of food and water and a clean litter box for several days. Dogs need more attention, but then cats never warned me that my door bell was fixing to ring or that the mail had been delivered. I am going to have to go with dogs after considering everything. Dogs are worth spending the time to take care of.
In the immortal words of Bubbles, “ kitties are so nice”
If a person wants something useful, definitely coonhounds:)
If a person wants a liability that’s likely to attempt to kill them while they sleep, get a cat :P
I've always owned dogs. Before my Jake (English Springer) died in 2007, we obtained a stray cat. Or, he obtained us. In the last year and a half of Jake's life (17 yrs) he was blind. The short haired domestic (named him Tiger, because he looks like a tiger), literally took care of Jake (guide cat if you will). It was odd when Jake died, Tiger looked for him for a few days (got something in my eye)...
Anyway, one year later we obtained another stray, a calico. Named her Lady. From the moment we obtained the cats we started training them. Both cats are well behaved, and answer commands (come, stay, up, down, and no).
Now, we love the cats as much as Jake.
Jake, we will see you across Rainbow Bridge one day...(got something in my eye).
But a cat won't deter burglars or home invaders like a dog will. Criminals often knock or ring the bell to see if anybody's home. If they hear a dog's loud barking and scratching against the door, most will move on.
I love cats but have had dogs. I have had incredible love from both.
But cats are so cute;)
