Puppies vs kittens

Updated on February 24, 2013

Puppies vs kittens!

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the question of the ages, pondered by animal lovers since time immortal. This is a contest, a clash, a competition. The line is drawn. Which side will you choose? Canine or feline? Bow-wow or meow-meow? If you dare to answer the unanswerable, proceed to the world's greatest presentation of puppies vs kittens.

Which would you choose?

Puppies or kittens?

I've scoured the world for the best pictures of puppies and kittens. After viewing the photographic evidence, I ask you to make your choice at the end.

Rules:

1) You may vote only once in the poll at the end.

2) You must view every single picture before casting your vote. You never know which one may sway your vote!

Introducing the puppy....

Here we observe a typical puppy weighing about one pound with standard features: 2 ears, 2 eyes, 4 paws, and 1 nose. Puppies are frequently found with mouths open, tongues lolling. The open-mouthed expression indicates a friendly, excited demeanor.

Introducing the kitten...

An average kitten is shown here. Although similar to puppies, kittens possess gentler features of the nose and tongue. Even at a young age, this kitten possesses the smug sense of superiority common to kitten-kind. Notice the stifled half-laugh? He is laughing at you, of course.

Puppy and kittens galore!

      I melt for both puppies AND kittens, but puppies turn into dogs, making them the clear winner in my book. Not that I don't like cats... I do! But I really, really, really love dogs.

      I love all animals. If it were up to me puppies but with most apartments around here not allowing dogs, kittens

      Actually I just like animals. I've owned both kittens and puppies but I'm with the group that love kittens. They are more self sufficient and independent than puppies, with a lot less maintenance. They have their own set of rules!!
