Cat People vs. Dog People

There are two types of people in this world--dog people and cat people. Although there are many people who have a fondness for both species every one tends to lean more towards one side.  It is even said that depending on which side of the fence you are on determines certain traits about you.  For example, a cat person is considered intelligent, thoughtful, graceful, independent, and mysterious.  (Sounds a lot like the traits of a cat huh?)  A dog person on the other hand is considered loyal, kind, faithful, helpful, and a team player.  (Sounds a lot like the traits of a dog....weird!)  So, which are you--a cat person or a dog person?  Still unsure?  Well check out these fun sites to determine if you are a cat person or a dog person.


I am a cat person!

 That's right...I am a cat lover from way back.  I have always had cats growing up and I still have cats today.  See my Snowball above  : )  I had a long haired, black and white cat when I was a child.  His name was Butch and he was the best cat ever!  I used to dress him up in my doll clothes and push him around the house in my doll stroller.  He loved it--he would lay there for hours and just purr.  (Rest in peace my friend.)

Having a cat is the greatest thing in the world.  They are sensitive to your feelings and know when you need some love.  They offer a good laugh when needed and they are always willing to curl up on your lap and purr.  You can spend hours looking into their eyes and wonder what they are thinking because they always tend to have that look on their face that makes you ask "What?"

So, this list is devoted to cats and some interesting facts about them that you may or may not know.  I hope you learn something new and have fun.

      Terrific! I am definitely a cat person at this stage, although we had a dog or two when I was a kid. I still like dogs, but at my age, they are too 'high-maintenance' for my energy level. Our kitties are purrrfect!! ;-)
