Cats or dogs? Which are the best companions?
If you were stranded on a deserted island, which 4-legged friend would you want? Would a cunning, carnivorous, food capturing cat be your preferred companion? Or, would a faithful committed unconditionally-loving dog be your preferred pal?
A dog, hands down, no questions about it. Dogs love you "unconditionally" (almost) as long as you're not mean to them. Cats love you on their terms, when they feel like it. They might share the occasional dead mouse with you, or pee in the middle of your bed if they're upset with you, but they won't dive into the water and catch birds and fish with you like a dog might. And, in the end, the dog is probably bigger and therefore more filling than the cat, if it should come down to that. (Sorry, I had to add that practicality).
AWE!!! Look at that face! I'm sorry cats just can't pull off puppy dog eyes!!
Not my cats - what, am I the only cat lover here? My cats have been awesome! They love me as much or more than my dogs!
I'd much prefer a dog, although I have 6 cats and 1 dog. Dogs like physical attention more so than cats do. My dog loves hugs and kisses, my cats just like it when I pet their back. I love my cats, don't get me wrong. But if I got to chose my pets, I would've picked 6 dogs and 1 cat.
It may be a very hard thing to distinguish between the pet companion offered by both species, but I think dogs are more concern and offer better companionship. Personally I have both dogs and cats but would prefer to have more dogs than cats.
I am a huge fan of dogs. I wouldn't survive alone without the companionship of a dog.
I would have to go with a dog. I've had both as pets and to me I'd rather have man's best friend at my side. I love all animals though. Everyone has their own pick!
I would definitely pick my dog as he is the best companion. He loves me, sleeps next to me and he can hunt and fish also. He has brought things home before. He has brought fish and squirrels home when we lived in the country. We cooked them for him to eat then. We don't want to let him eat raw.
How about a cunning, carnivorous, food capturing dog or a faithful committed unconditionally-loving cat? My dog or cat or just an arbitrary dog or cat I don't know? How big? 'Cause if it's a big cat, I might go for that - so long as it's tame - and a good hunter! On the other hand, if the dog is a good protector, I might prefer the dog. My own cat is actually more of a lovebug than either of my dogs and I'm not sure of her hunting prowess, but I do know that she is easily distracted. Since I'm a vegetarian, I guess having a carnivorous, hunting cat wouldn't be of much use, so I guess I'd either go for the teeny, mild-mannered cat I have right now or one of my dogs - all of my pets, feline and canine are unconditional lovers.
For me I would want my dogs! My life would be so empty without them. But for those folks that are cat lovers, they will feel the same way about their pets and obviously they would want their feline friend for companionship!

Did you ever wonder why many people love dogs? Because, dogs are adorable; and don’t lie about love. Me too I love dogs. Those 3 dogs are my best friends. Lassie, Astern and Husky? Lassie is living with me like 11 years already. Astern, 7 years old that’s lassie’s puppy. Husky, is 7 months...

You have never known love until you are loved by a dog.
