Dogs or cats?

    I recently made a hub about dogs and cats to find out which animal is more popular among hubbers. Unfortunately, only 3 people have voted in my poll leaving dogs with 67% of votes and cats with 33%. Hopefully I can get a better response in the forums. So, which animal do you like better, cats or dogs?

      You just got 4 votes on your hub. I voted there. :-)
      And, for the record, dogs for me. Cats think they own you. LOL

        Haha, good point. Though cats do seem pretty nice too. I personally have 2 golden retrievers, so I have to go with dogs.

      i wonder what the physcological aspects are in a person  on weather or not they prefer dogs over cats.. do you think there is an obvious sign on one or the other

        I'm not sure. Obviously if there are allergies, one often tends to prefer the animal he/she is not allergic to. However, if allergies are not a factor then I don't know if there is an obvious sign. I will do some research on that now and update you w/ the results.

    Dogs... I'm not alergic to cats but I tell everyone I am... my secret don't tell anyone... I just do not like cats, I had a bad experience with them when I was a kid.

    I've always had dogs, but after the last one, a cat came along and decided to stay. I haven't gotten another dog yet.

    A dog is the better companion, but a cat is lower maintenance, for me anyway.

    1. marshall92 profile image84
      marshall92posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Yeah, I touched on that in my hub. When people buy cats, they usually buy more than one due to "lower maintenance."

    It's funny, now 6 people have voted at my hub, and the results are still exactly the same: 67% dogs, 33% cats. Maybe those numbers are accurate after all.

      Do you have a button for both because if not I ain't voting.

        If I make one will it erase the current results?

        1. Anti-Valentine profile image94
          Anti-Valentineposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          I think so. Not sure. I think if you modify a poll then the results are deleted. You'd have to get everyone to vote again.

        I'd have trouble voting too.  Although I don't happen to have a dog right now, I do like both cats and dogs.  Contrary to what some people say, if you have a cat long enough they start to act like dogs (or people) anyway.

    I like all of God's Creatures...Big and small. That being said: Dog's rule! (Horses are second in my book...but they are too messy to keep inside the house!)

    Both, plus mice.

    This scene happens daily in Bisbee, AZ.

      I got a kick out of that picture. Why do people say dogs and cats fight anyways? From my experience, they usually get along.

      Cool!  We live 15 miles from Bisbee, I was there today following up on getting building permits, and I never knew this.

      Got cats, kangaroo rats, and a leopard gecko lizard at the moment, but definitely favor cats.  Don't even fathom the folks that say dogs are better companions.  Never have had a cat bite me (other than a gentle love bite), but have been bitten in the a** by an English sheepdog.  Never had a cat pee on me but had a Pug do that while I was sleeping on the couch.  Never had a dog figure out how to the litter box. 

      Oh, yeah.  And I've never had a cat wake me up at 3 a.m. by barking insanely at a phantom or whatever....

    All I know is there's an old myth that men prefer dogs and women prefer cats, but I think this thread has pretty much blown that  theory out of the water. I keep seeing "I prefer dogs".

    Myth busted.

      They should do that on MythBusters. I guess it doesn't involve blowing stuff up, though.

    I have a dog and two cats. So I can't vote. I've always had dogs but I love cats due to their low maintenance. I used to have gerbils and fish.

    And for christmas I want a pony.

    I love cats, but my dogs go with me everywhere! i had one cat who barked like a dog, went to the door when someone knocked and LOVED to ride in the car...He ran away on Christmas...and I've yet to find him - and I'm just not ready for a new one yet! So, at this point, I have to say my dogs...
