Which do you prefer as a pet? A dog or a cat? And are you a man or a woman?


I am not sure if it be myth or truth that men prefer dogs and women prefer cats. Personally, I fall into the stereotypical dog-loving man. But maybe I am just that. A stereotype. Maybe, there are an equal number of dog lovers among women as men, and an equal number of cat lovers among men as women. You tell me. And I guess one can like both, but that is not me. Sorry, I do not like cats.

    I've heard people claim to have an allergic reaction to dogs too. Your allergic reaction to cat dander makes an easy choice for you.

    I agree. My dog listens to what I say. Follows me whenever I leave a room. And is a great companion.

    Hopefully, when the grandchildren grow up, you can bring another cat home to stay. As you say, kids come first.

    It's sad they don't live longer than they do. We had dogs when I was a kid. I have owned 2 dogs on my own. My first Boxer died of a heart attack at 10 years old. That is too short a life span for a pet you come to love.

    That's a good point. Cats can live their entire life in a household fairly independent of its owners. Dogs won't let you forget they are there.

    I agree with everything you wrote. To me, cats seem like a self-centered egotist. While, dogs act like your best friend.

    I agree. I have owned dogs and cats over the years. My cats are okay doing their own thing. My dogs always want to do their thing with me. Dogs give & ask for very little in return.

    It sounds like your animals both like you, so they can't be all that dumb. My dog won't stay in a room if I am not there. All 4 paws leave the ground if he thinks we're going for a ride in the van. I had a cat once. I trained him to fetch.

    My dog likes to go outdoors now & then, but 99% of his day he prefers to just follow me around.

    That is one of the nice perks of cat ownership. Leash free and able to roam outside. Leave them food & water and shelter. Go on vacation. No kennels.

    I used to own a cat; he was around when hungry. I own a dog; he follows me everywhere. My dog is like one of the family.

    Great answer! Cats are like divas. You love them & hate them at the same time. Dogs are like another member of the family.
