    I would have to go with dogs on this one because they are such loyal companions.

    I have had both. And, There are good and bad things about both. I think I prefer cats, though. They will mostly use a litterbox and you don't have to take them outside to go potty. One of the bad things is that cats are more likely to not be snuggly. I have had a few cats who were super snuggly. But, I have had many more who were not. Most dogs will snuggle much more easily and regularly. But, I still like cats better.

    I prefer dogs because not only are they loyal but because they are also good anti-stress agents. Playing with my dog (who is a border terrier) after a hard day at work is a great feeling. Dogs are also great at keeping the cats & robbers out.

    I have had both & enjoyed my cats yet loved having a dog the best & would love to have one while traveling Australia.
    The only reason we don't have one is because there are so many places they are not allowed to go.
    This one ( Izzy )needs a home but was too big for us .

    I have had both cats and dogs.  My last cat destroyed almost every piece of furniture in the house, wrecked two Christmas trees, peed on my very expensive carpet, and used to hide under the coffee table and attacked my legs (playfully for him, I suppose) when I pass by the living room and scared the heck out of me.  But I loved him anyways. He passed away two years of old age.

    I prefer cats. They can look after themselves, they dont' need to be walked, they aren't so loud and they don't have that horrible dog smell. Not all dogs do though but some of them. . wow big_smile

    I am a dog person, myself. I could be wrong or biased or both. But it seems to me that dogs are friendlier and more fun. They can do tricks and are nice and playful, just the way I like my furry creatures.

    Also, I don't know if you've ever heard the old saying about dogs and cats, but it goes like this: "Dogs have families, cats have staffs." That sentiment pretty well sums it up for me.

    Take it easy.

    I too have had both and definitely prefer cats. Not because I don't like dogs, I am just too selfish to be on the schedule a dog usually requires. Cats don't have to be let out or walked. They are fun and loyal, yes, but cats can be fun too. It all depends on how they are raised and what you do with them.

    Our 2 cats actually listen for my husband's truck in the evening and sit at the door to greet him. Just like a dog? Lower maintenance though...

    Dogs!! I have had some very smart dogs. They were very loyal, obediant, loving. At times I would take my dog to work, they loved being in the car, going to the beauty parlor for their baths and trimming. They have such great personalities. And they all were very protective of my kids when they were young.
