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 prefer cats for many reasons, few of which: because I dont have to walk
them, I don't have to bathe them, they are clean re the litterbox, and they
are independent.

Dogs are stupid, and so are cats, so why bother? Because cats are stupid in
a much more "intelligent" way than dogs. This has to do with the cat's
built-in independence. Cats are emotional and caring creatures, and they
don't try to be that to please me, as a dog will, but because they mean it.
