Default Why did you pick a cat over a dog?

I'm curious what made you choose cats over dogs?

I prefer cats because I don't have to bathe them every so often. I also
like how I don't have to walk them (dogs love to get their paws all dirty
and roll around in gunk). Cats are usually smaller, and therefore eat less
and have smaller poops. I just think generally that cats are more
attractive graceful creatures that naturally smell good. But let's hear
your thoughts on cats vs dogs.

Because I live in an apartment.

Otherwise, I would definitely have a dog. A big dog.

I dig my cats though. I'm sure I'll have cats for the rest of my life.

For me its because of my job. I work seasonally for about 5 months out
of the year. It requires me to be gone up to 12 hours a day 7 days a
week for some time.

So I wouldnt be able to give a dog the care and time they would need (ie
walks etc)

Cats in that sense are much easier to care for.
I just didnt want to be unfair to a dog though I love them just as much
as cats

I've seen this site and it is cruel. The link you gave didn't work,
so maybe it's already been taken offline. One can only hope.

I didn't see the beginning of this thread, but I'd like to answer the
topic question for anyone interested.
First of all, I didn't really choose my cat, he chose me. I used to
work in a grocery store and a kitten was found one morning sleeping on
the cat food. He was about 8 weeks old and the people that found him
were just going to open the door and put him outside. I took him and
said I would find a home for him, but after putting him down on the
floor and having him follow me everywhere I went, I decided to adopt
him myself. I come from a family of dog people, so I had never had a
cat and even lived in an apartment that didn't allow them, but I
couldn't resist the little guy. (We moved after the landlord told me
to get rid of the cat) My co-workers that owned cats all pitched in
to get me what I needed to take him home and I named him Freddy after
the store. (Fred Meyer grocers)
It's been over 10 years and Freddy is still with me. He's healthy,
happy, and we love each other to death. He never leaves my sight when
I'm home and cries for me when I'm away at work. He is, indeed, my
child. (I'm 44 and never had children). I'm now a true cat person,
and much prefer them to dogs.

A dog was never an option. I like cats more because, they are cleaner, you
don't have to pick up poop, they don't slobber, no stinky breath, they are
so much more graceful, and they're softer to pet. There is no better sound
in the world then a kitty purring. And I hate barking. Besides all that, I
got mauled by a dog when I was thirteen.
I love manx cats the most.
