    Are you a cat person or a dog person?

    I love both cats and dogs.  Over the years I have owned both, or rather, they owned me. lol. My precious feline, Mischief (aptly named) lived 17 of our years before she went off to die.  I have said in the past that I am a dog person because I have a dog now, but after doing some hard thinking I would have to state that I am for both.  The reason that I will never own another cat isn't because I hate cats, or because I don't want another cat.  It is because no other cat would ever come close to the same level of love as my Mischief was at. 
    She was one of a kind and the one child of mine that I miss the most.

    We have eight dogs and used to have five cats.  The dogs created the cat depopulation!  I love them both, but I favor the dogs the most.  They are always wanting to give out their loving!

    Most definitely a proud cat lady! I just think they're so graceful, intelligent and loving.

    I love all fury animals. Cats are definitely the best though!

    Well, I am a dog person.  I suppose first and foremost, I'm a dog person because we never had cats around, because my sister has ailurophobia and is deathly afraid of cats.  There's no rational reason for it...she just hates them with a passion.  And it's just as well since it turned out, as I learned when I was about 16, that I was highly allergic to them.  That's gotten better over the years, but I still have to be careful about touching them and then touching my face, etc.

    But I like dogs because cats are a little too independent for me.  They pretty much do what they want to do, regardless of what YOU want them to do.  That makes for some interesting entertainment and interactions, but I don't know if I want that in a pet...I've had too much of that in my previous relationships.  LOL

    If I had to choose it would have to be dogs. I really do not understand cats at all. Maybe it is because I was almost jumped by a lion once. Who knows.
    Dogs seem more attractive somehow. Mongrels especially.

    I love and adore both, but two of each would be my preference.  I think all animals , and it's easy to forget that we are animals too, are very special creatures.

    I love dogs. They are loving and always want to play with you. My dog is great and he loves playing.

    I have both but if I had my 'druthers, it'd be a dog.  Cats are very independent and don't always want to cuddle when you do.  Dogs are just loyal and always so happy to see you!

    I am 100% a cat person. I love my cat Calista (named after Calista Flockhart, she was very thin when we rescued her and I love Flockhart in her role as Ally McBeal).

    I have had dogs before, but they tend to be smellier and more high maintenance. They are like having another needy person around. But they are loyal which is great. However, cats are independent but also know when they are needed around.

    I wish this question included rodents as a choice. I really miss my gerbil, hampster, and other furry little friends.

    I would never consider choosing between the two, I'm both a cat person and a dog person.

    I myself cannot choose between the two. They both have traits to be admired and enjoyed. I cannot choose if I consider all past pets - cats and dogs. In the past I would say that a certain cat is the best pet, but in the present I would have to say that a dog is the best pet. This is from someone who currently has 3 cats and 2 dogs - all but one adopted.Which ever is chosen - they all add value to our lives.

    I am definitely a cat person.  I don't mind some dogs...when other people have them, but I will only ever keep cats as pets.

    I would have to say I'm a cat person . Cats are easy to clean up after and their so cute when their small , and can lay in your bed like a baby .

    I've always loved dogs, especially chubby, fuzzy looking puppies such as huskies. I've not ever liked cats, they are very independent and stand-offish at times. With dogs, I haven't experienced that type of personality.

    I am an animal person. I love all the fluffy, fuzzy, scaly and winged creatures.

    I have a dog and a cat, but find myself to be more of a dog person. Cats can be a little on the aloof side and dogs seem more loving and willing to interact. I also find myself being attracted to people with dogs rather then cats.

    I have enjoyed the company of both, but would definitely say that dogs are more responsive to their owners. I do not need to tell anyone about seeing-eye-dogs, therapy dogs, seizure alert dogs, etc.
