    Do you like cats more than dogs?

    Yes, I do. They're less work. They can mostly look after themselves and I like their version of socialization: hanging out in the room with me, without demanding I give them my full attention. That's how I am too. I like to be around people, but not necessarily interacting with them. So it's a good fit.

    I do sometimes wish for a dog's undying, expressive love, but I fully believe cats are capable of it too in their own way. For example, my old cat always knew when I was ill and would cuddle with me until I felt better. Another cat was protective of my little sister and was actually smart enough to come get us when my sister fell off her bike one day!

    Really, it depends on the cat or dog. In general, I like both. My family and I have only cats now, but some years ago I was blessed to have a dog that was, in every way, my best friend. That dog was gentle, loving and protected me and my newborn. Sometime later, after he had passed from this world, I was blessed again with a loving cat that comforted me and stayed with me whenever I had seizures. And she once jumped a creep that tried to assault me. Ran the bastard off bleeding, lol! So either can be great companions, it depends on their individual personalities.

    I think I like them equally though, over the years, we've had cats more than dogs.  As already mentioned cats are far less demanding of one's time: no need to take them for a walk every day; no need to clean up their mess.  Also, they generally don't need so many Vet visits, they keep better health.

    Dog's show their love.  They often run to welcome you.  They love your company.  But they can want too much of you at times.  Cats, on the other hand, hang around but don't generally insist on being right there with you all the time.   They're happy to give you space and want you to do the same - unless THEY feel like socializing.

    It is said that one owns a dog but that cats have staff.   Certainly many of them have a certain regal automony.  It's easy to see how they were 'placed on immaginary pedestals' in some ancient civilizations.

    On occasion my family and I have owned both a cat and a dog at the same time.  If brought up from kitten and pup together you find they really love one another.  I recall situation where one female cat grew to be larger than the little dog.  It mothered that dog, washing it, cuddling up in the same basket in the cold weather.   At that time it was the little dog which caused all the angst around the place, not the cat.

    As far as fondness for either one or the other I'd say I like them equally. But for convenience of ownership a cat is the way to go.

    I'm not really a cat person. Or a dog person. I kinda hate animals.
