Used to have 2 dogs, I now own 3 cats. I prefer cats. They don't bark or bite people (unless messed with). They don't need constant attention and with an automatic litter box and food they can be left alone for 3-4 days without putting them in a kennel. In general they eat less than dogs and live about 5 years longer. I like the fact they are less domesticated or wilder than dogs.
