Probably has something to do with control and domination: dogs require
donination and cat's can't be dominated. Of course there really isn't
all that much truth in that rumor of yours: it's just that there are
more male dominators and control freaks than women, at least in modern
western cultures - elsewhere and elsewhen, it might be different.

Women and dogs are both high maintenance (demand attention, have to be
taken "out" regularly, etc), men and cats are both low maintenance (happier
left alone, as long as there's food available, etc). In general, of course.

What has this got to do with 'anti-semitism'®?

I don't know, I have both; two domestic shorthaired cats and a very active
Australian Shepherd. What does that say about me?

Not to perpetuate this thread, but look at the cross-posting. What does cat
and dog ownership have to do with nursing or audio either? Your reply
prompted me to look at all the groups. I would call this person a troll.
