Kittens or puppies? Which is better?

    I'm firmly in the puppy camp. I adore the waggling, slobbering affection that only a puppy can give.

    What is the consensus here?

    Both!  Absolutely!  I love the infantile 'ferociousness' of a kitten and how they are all about 'attacking' you and any other invisible foes they come across while they're playing.

    I also adore the smell of puppy breath and watching them skid to a stop on a bare floor...and with puppies of big dogs?  I absolutely get giddy watching them grow into their feet!

    And you can love and snuggle both - I don't do pets you can't snuggle...lol

    My preference is Dogs, but I am presently living with 2 cats, not by choice.

    Kittens - they self-train for potty breaks

          :-)

          I think Licorice would mourn herself to death. For whatever reason, she absolutely adores me, and will sit by the door all day, if I am gone all day. Usually, my wife is the object of this level of adoration; this is the first time, for me.

            Ah that is fabulous.  A dog that wants to be near you, which most if not all of them do, is one the great pleasures in life.

                Now I see what this is all about. Proud pet owner. You do realize I hope, that man has over bread these social parasites for his own narcissistic gratification?

                I love poodles. Never had a full size one like yours, but a miniature one named Napoleon and then years later Archie, an amber medium sized cockapoo, and a pair of black miniature sweethearts, Bert and Ernie who were Snoodle brothers . I' had a Cocker Spanial, Cast Golden Ruffian(Ruff), one Boxer, Samantha Soubrette(Sam), a couple of Shepherds. Now, I only have two cats, Maggie(Mags) and Tammy or Tubby(Tubs). Almost forgot Sledge(Mickymooks, Wiggie, Wig-A-Muffin), a wonderful small tortoise shell cat who lived18 years and Ladybug(Bug, Bugdog), a beautiful spotted Cocker. She lived 15 years. When I lived as a bachelor in my early 20's I kept a couple large fantail Goldfish. They greeted me every day when I came home from work as a sculptor for Whitehorse Mold Co.Had them for 6 years, I should also mention a fabulous Peach Faced Lovebird, named Buddy. That was one cool pet, sooo smart!

      Thanks  Maralexa - I love 'em to bits!  There are two different adults in the pictures - top dog in the basket pic and the bottom dog on the grass.

      The adults are girls, the puppy is a boy, and they brought him up pretty good.

      One more pic, sorry, can't resist...

    Neither kittens nor puppies remain so for long. So let's talk cats & dogs.

    Cats believe they own the space they keep(you have to kick em), but dogs get out the way. Cats maintain but a fraction of the loyalty dogs exhibit. Cats use a litter box, which is way cool, but dogs bark at strange noises and even bite bad people, unless it's a bad dog. Cats are cleaner than dogs and are fun to watch, but not anywhere as fun to play with as dogs are. It's debatable, but as I see it, dogs make you feel loved far better that cats, but you must groom dogs, yet never cats. Dogs are phenomenal at perceiving your moods and even anticipate your next move. Dogs listen for the sound of your car brakes near a mile away and sit at the door, anticipating your arrival and if you do something stupid and unfeeling as to drop your dog off a hundred miles away from its home, just to get rid of the poor loyal beast, it will spend its life finding its way back.

    If you live in a rural area, get a dog. Metropolitan areas, where you must keep your pet on a leash and pick up it's poop, get a cat. Live in a city like NY? Stick with fish. I suggest large golden fantail goldfish and just two of them.

    Cute doggy pics!

    I don't do well with cats and their litter boxes.  And cats don't like ME unless they belong to someone else.  Cats are supposed to be very intelligent and similar to human beings in behavior.  Now, isn't that just a little too SCARY???

    I love dogs and horses.  I was born in the Year of the Dog.  One of those years, anyway.  If I don't have a dog(s) in my life, I can't say that I am truly happy.

    During the assimilation of a domestic death scene, when there are pet cats in the house, the forensic team will determine how long the deceased has been dead by how much the house cat has eaten of the lips, nose and eyelids. Should it be any mystery why a cat is always staring at you when you awaken in the middle of the night? They are awaiting your eventual death to dine.

    Dogs are often found dead along the side of their owners from grief.

    Is that why kitties jump on your face when you are trying to sleep?  Awaiting the kill?  Yeah, it is creepy to wake up and find kitty staring at you with bug eyes.  But to blow your info out of the water, I knew of man in town whose dog made him dinner.  For about a month, the poor thing had no way out of the house when his master (a hermit) expired.

      well, considering the source of my information, it's no wonder. Poor hermit should have been kinder to poor starved pooch.

      Kitty doesn't kill, just waits like the vultures. It hopes to find you as carrion.
