Dogs for sure. I have a boxer, I'm watching a friend's dog, and I have a cat. The cat is the first nice one we've ever actually had, though it still tears up furniture. The dogs are both trained, don't tear up furniture and don't make messes in the house. Unlike the cat, who carries her litter every where with her and has even slept in her litter box. They can't be trained as easily as dogs, though they are intelligent, I'll give them that. Dogs also have more of a companionship than cats. You can take dogs to do anything! Cats just lay around, eat, sleep, scratch things, and act up a lot of the times.
throughout my whole life, i've been a dog person. however, since itchy died, i promised him that i would never own another dog again, after we had him put to sleep. i owned for 19 years, since i was 10, and now he's gone. he was more than a pet to me. he was like a second little brother if anything. that's why if i ever do own another pet, it'll probably be a cat. i just can't bring myself to owning another dog again...
Dogs, I often look after friends dogs. Work commitments mean we can't keep a dog but my children were desperate for a pet. We got two cats and I am still amazed at how much I love them. I have to say I love cats. They are so fascinating. They now come a very close second to dogs.
I've been a cat person since I could walk (and that's been a really long time) but I have also loved a few dogs when I was a kid too. Prefer cats though and always will. Cats are more practical for working adults living in smaller apartments.
After having both, I prefer dogs. A dog will always let you know if someone is in the yard or at the door. Cats do nothing to protect humans of danger, nor will they do anything if their owners are in trouble or being attacked.
Also cats never feel guilty for peeing where they should not have.
Perhaps, Although I have never heard of any cat owner say that a cat saved them from being attacked. I have heard many cat owners complain that their cat had attacked them(scratched or bitten them) for no reason at all. Regardless, I would never put my money on a cat to protect anyone or anything but themselves.
Oh I love them both dearly, but I prefer cats because they are more self sufficient. Working long hours and traveling occasionally makes it difficult to have a pup, but if I had the time I would have both. My two kitties don't mind if I'm gone a lot during the day as long as I'm home to snuggle most nights
I use to love both but I adopted an evil cat that made me wary of cats forever. Love dogs and have 3 of them. there is two of them, and you can juuust barely see the little one behind my husband's rott mix. Only time I can get them to stay still for a picture is to be on the other side of the fence
The orange and white one is my baby. My late aunt gave her to me after making the mistake of getting a female puppy when she already had a female grown rottweiler.
I love dogs, they are lots of fun and great companion, you can take them for a swim, for a run and there's a connection, on the other hand i don't like cats, it seem no matter how much you feed them they are never happy and allow brushing against my leg.
I don't really mind either one. But I prefer a cat over a dog
With my experience, dogs tend to bark at everything and be noisy. And you have to walk them and need more attention than a cat.
A cat on the other hand is more independent and can survive without you there for awhile. A cat is also quiet too unless you get one of those cats that like to meow lol. Sure I have to remember to clean the litter box but its worth having a cute cuddly creature in the house.
I have 2 dogs and 2 cats, the cats were great company while we lived in the apartment (the kitty litter not so much), now that we live on property the cats go outside as do the dogs, but with the dogs we can play catch, go for walks, teach them new funny tricks, for example my male dog before he gets a treat has to say please, and if it's just a little woof I just say louder and he really barks louder...I'd say I prefer dogs hands down...
Cats. I have two right now, and have usually had at least one around since childhood. They suit my personality better. They are independent, yet playful and affectionate. They sit on your lap and purr and there is nothing greater than that. Dogs are too hyper for me. I can't take the barking, drooling, and butt-sniffing.
I love both but prefer cats. One of mine, Tiger, woke us in the middle of the night because someone was trying to steal our car! My little one always knows when I need comfort and follows me around like a dog. I love all animals. Thanks for the question
I love both, but prefer Dogs. I currently have two dogs Lady and Lucy, who look incredibly alike, but they both come from rescue centres in different parts of the country. They are both very cute and a huge part of our famil.
My cat Zoe loves to walk around the house with her pet squirrel and cry sadly and then puts it in my shoe or near the closed door I am behind. I am guessing it is similar to my one cat I had years ago that would catch...
So which do you think is smarter, cats or dogs? I know that all their personalities differ, and it depends on the breeds. But overall, I'd have to go with the felines, cats. Yes dogs have a higher social intelligence...
