Cats are TOTALLY better than dogs

There's no two ways about it - you can't be sitting on the fence with this burning issue

Cats are better than dogs!

It's pointless to draw a comparison between the intelligence and beauty of the two species. Dogs fall behind in the race, cats win paws down!

I should know. I'm a cat.

The Facts

Nothing but the Facts

Looks : For grace, beauty, serenity and independence, look at a cat. To see an ungainly creature with his tongue lolling about, look no further than a clumsy dog.

Servitude : For slobbering servility and mindless devotion, look at the dog. You want someone who sees you as the Leader of the Pack? Pah! Cats bow to no one, dogs will still adore you even if you mistreat them..

The Bathroom. : Do I have to remind you of the toilet habits of the canine? Ugh! No modesty, no shame.

Socialisation : Dogs need to be trained. How many hundreds of thousands of eBooks are out there on dog-training?. Brain-washing is more like it! Of course it's a simple matter to brain-wash dogs, their brains are simple to start with. Dogs also enjoy training, it gives them something to do that's not destructive.

Don't even think about brain-washing a cat. We brain-wash you!

A cat can make a fretful child smile

YOUR TURN! - Are you up to it?

It's glaringly obvious to anyone that a Cat will always win in the cat-dog race of ideal companion to the discerning human.

I've stated, out here in the open, my own views on the matter. If you, however, hold a different opinion then make your case!

Cats are TOTALLY better than dogs

Cats are better than Dogs - From a Cat's Eye View

This honest, informative, and straight-thinking book (written from a cat's point of view) presents all the wonderful things that cats are and that dogs (hiss!) can't measure up to, including verified testimonials and nearly unbiased commentaries, helping readers understand once and for all that cats have more style, character, and pizzazz than dogs ever will!

Dogs are better than Cats - From a Dog's Eye View

This insightful, informative, and truthful book (written from a dog's point of view) lists all the magnificent things that Dogs are and that cats (ugh!) are not, including actual case histories and commentaries that prove once and for all that Dogs are...infinitely better friends, companions, and ethical beings than are cats!

What do you think?

If you're trying to rub my fur up the wrong way, you'll find it a waste of your time. I am a tolerant chap.

Leave any comment you wish, you don't even have to be a cat! Dogs are welcome to post, indeed any creature great or small can leave a comment here.

      Having both dogs and a cat, I must disagree. Dogs make much better pets. Dogs believe they are your friend. Cats believe you are their servant and must bow down to their every wish NOW.

      This lens made me laugh though and think of the book Why A Dog? By A. Cat (and Robin Michal Koontz).

      I enjoyed your argument in favour of cats, Vladi, and agree with them but some of the things you say about dogs are actually points that I love about them. Sorry and all that. :)

      I really enjoyed this one. All animals are awesome. But cats? They really are the greatest! :-)

      I see you have become a fan of lolcats. Sometimes I can spend hours there. Ghost said to let you know she is currently writing her own lens. She is tired of being blamed for having to go to the vet.

      Yikes. You sure are taking a huge chance on this debate about whether Cats are better than dogs. Since you are a cat I really hesitated to be too honest in fear of hurting your feelings. Great debate and it is so interesting to read the thoughts of others.

      Another excellent lens, Vlad! I'm sure you will get a lot of monkeybrain action here.

      That was a great quiz. I'll tell CC to add it to her own lenses.

      Dogs are lovely, but cats are easier to care for, neater, brainier (so it seems) and simply wonderful family members.

      Vladi, I have known some amazing cats, and have generally been closer to cats than dogs, but I don't want to take a stand on one species being better than the other.

      Vladi, at the risk of alienating you from me, I have to admit that while I absolutely adore you and adored all the cats I have owned in the past, I am a dog person. I hope you will forgive me!

      You are a very impressive writer, nearly convincing. Hard to believe you are a cat.
