Why Cat Owners Are Better Than Dog Owners
Cats are Better Than Dogs
There are certainly good people who are also dog owners, although it doesn't seem like there are that many really. Dog owners are just worse people than cat owners if we have to make a generalization. Dog owners inflict their pet ownership on others while cat owners and their pets mind their own business. Most of the arguments made in this article won't apply to all dog owners. However, the arguments will apply to a lot of them. Let's imagine you took all the dog owners in the world and put them on an island. Then you took all the cat owners and put them on the island. I think the conclusion you will draw is that cat island is the better island.
What Dog Owners Doo Doo
I had a construction dumpster in the driveway of my house. The driveway sat right under an apartment attached to my house and occupied by renters. The driveway runs right up to the street.
Many people walking their dogs walk right by the driveway and right by the dumpster. After a few months of having the dumpster, it started to stink. I got up the courage to climb up the side and look in and what do I discover? My construction dumpster is full of bags of dog feces.
Not surprisingly, these dog owners defined rude, disgusting behavior. Clearly, they felt that tossing dog feces in a construction dumpster was fine. They didn't care that it was right in front of somebody's house. Obviously, they didn't care about the stench. To make life bearable for my renters, I got up on the dumpster and emptied the bags. I pulled them out with a pick-up device so I didn't have to touch anything. After that, I put up some signs. They read: "Due to the actions of some dog owners, this dumpster is under video surveillance. Please! No illegal dumping."
Signs Did No Good
After I put up the signs, the bags of dog poo dropped dramatically. However, there were still a few in there. Naturally, dog owners tossed their bags of feces in there despite the signs. My renter was on her porch when one set of dog owners came by. She overheard them reading the sign and one said to the other: "What do you think that means?" Nevertheless, they threw their dog poo into the dumpster anyway. Unbelievable.
While some dog owners religiously pick up after their dogs, it's fairly common that many don't. In fact, many don't give a you-know-what. It seems that most dog owners couldn't care less where their dogs drop their doo. Here's the kicker to this story. Finally, when we had the disposal company remove the dumpster, they pulled it up on a big truck. Much of the water spilled out. People two blocks away, thinking it was a sewage line break, reported the smell to the police. When a policeman came to our door to ask where the water was coming from, I explained the situation. The police officer just nodded in understanding and left. Thanks dog owners!
My favorite bad dog owner story involves parks where children play. In fact, I've witnessed many a dog owner letting his dog run off-leash. He just ignores the fact that his dog is pooping all over the place. I'm pretty certain that this is the dog owner's intention. He takes his dog to the park so it can crap on the grass. Then he'll just ignore it and pretend he's not paying attention. The insensitivity of this is kind of hard to fathom. How could anyone let a dog take a dump in a park where children play?
So basically, it's my argument that dog owners just don't care.
Attacked by a Dog
I have to admit a prejudice I have against dog owners. An unleashed dog attacked me when I was a little girl. I was in a park and a big dog jumped on my back and scratched me all up. The owner came up and grabbed his dog, failed to apologize, and walked off. I was a young child and this man didn't even care. He didn't check to see if I was okay even though I was crying and in obvious pain.
My own pain aside, many, many dog owners don't keep their dogs leashed because they don't give a crap. Their dog is more important. They let them run free, which usually results in a wide range of dangerous possibilities. They endanger the animal and others. Naturally, dog owners make the argument that dogs need to be off leash in order to fully enjoy their lives. I've got news for you dog owners: the dog doesn't give a rat's butt. It's a dog. It's not a human being and it doesn't have human feelings. It likes being on a leash too. It just wants to be with its owner.
He's a Really Nice Dog
Dog owners make great excuses. Even when the dog is off-leash and attacks a person or a child.
"He's a really nice dog."
"He doesn't bite."
"He really likes people."
Whatever. I don't care that their dog is nice. Especially when it attacks my child. I simply don't want the dog to jump on me. And honestly, it's not so bad for me, I can handle it. But it's really bad for children. Lots of little children are afraid of dogs. However, this doesn't stop dog owners from letting their dogs run free at parks where children play. Nevermind that off-leash dogs are illegal in most places. What's more important? The safety of kids or the rights of dogs? Dog owners think dog rights are more important.
I have a friend who runs regularly on mountain trails. Multiple unleashed dogs have accosted him while he's running. In other words, the dog owner feels that it's their right to have their dog off-leash. Should that inconvenience or even injure a non-dog owner, that's too bad.
That's just how dog owners are.
Who are better people: cat owners or dog owners
Cat Owners are Better
Cat owners are just better, more caring people than dog owners. Sure, many cat owners let their cats outside. Cats hunt and chase birds and do their business outside with no respect for other people's property. However, cats bury their business. You don't see people complaining about stepping in cat poop. Children don't fall in cat poop while playing in the park. People don't have to pick cat poop out of their lawns because irresponsible cat owners let their cat crap there.
Ever heard stories about cats knocking down runners on random trails? No about children screaming in fear because somebody's cat ran up to them and tried to lick them. No stories about massive quantities of bagged cat poop piling up at local waste facilities. You rarely hear about a bad cat owner leaving their cat in a hot car. Random cats aren't running around local stores. The worst you hear about cat owners is hair build up on their furniture. And then there's that story about the cat who wouldn't get out of a guest's lap.
Cats are just smarter, more reasonable, better behaved animals than dogs. And so are their owners.
