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.


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.

Humans beat canines or felines in the stupidity department any day though.

Humans are suppost to be smarter, wiser etc etc.

I have never denied that, cats could never start a war...

First off..not everyone chooses one or the other. I used to have both
and I know lots of people who still do.

I don't "prefer" one over the other as they both have advantages
and disadvantages but some of the advantages of cats are
they are less demanding, can be left over night alone, tend to
be smaller on the whole (my last dog was 85lbs) and are less
expensive when it comes to feeding and vet bills. I also find
cleaning up after them much easier and they don't require
as much space.

I read once (perhaps in here) that you feed a dog, love it, care for it, and
it
looks at you and thinks you must be god. You feed a cat, love it, care for
it and it looks at you and thinks I must be god g. Cats are more
independent
by nature but that doesn't mean they are "smarter". Studies have proven
that dogs have a greater capacity for learning. Of course we have no idea
if that's because they are smarter or because the cats in the study didn't
want
to participate. :-)

I didn't chose cats - cats chose me. But you are right on all the
things you list.

Cat's motto: No matter what you've done wrong, always try to make it
look like the dog did it.
