5 Reasons Dogs are Better than Cats

Updated on June 21, 2014

Hidden Assassin


Cats are horrible creatures, just saying. If I wanted to live everyday in fear of my own life, and the life of my children, I would buy a cat. Dogs, now there are some good pets. I would rather hug a pack of rapid dogs, then live with a cat. Everyday I would walk up to that pack of dogs and think, “Man, I am so glad I don't have a cat.” A long time ago, cats were worshiped like gods. This probably went to there heads. In a society that thrives on chaos and humiliation, a cat kind of fits perfectly. The only problem I really have with dogs is when they chew stuff. Cat's on the either hand were blessed with a set of katana blades, even samurai warriors would be jealous of. So why are we here? What life lessons are we going to learn? We are here to hear the main reasons, I think dogs are better than cats. Let's get started here.

1. Claws versus paws

I have never seen a cat that’s not vicious to some point. Some dogs maybe, but not all of them. The thing that really gets me is those claws. The penetrating razors of death, attached to the tiniest frames ever. I have seem more cat scratches on people than name brand clothing. There is a lot of name brand clothing. When a dog jumps on you, you stand a chance. When a cat jumps on you, they are coming for blood. I know what you are thinking. Hey, maybe you do not have a cat. Well, no, I don't. I did though, so stop right there. I have seen these wolverine motivated stress relievers in action and I am telling you. I am not over-reacting, they are, those jerks.

2. Cats are from hell, where dogs don't dwell.

Besides, those claws, and a lack of compassion for expensive furniture, there is another side. It is the worse side, the inside. Yes folks, these creatures have such a lack of compassion for human beings, you would think they were all justin beiber fans. I do not capitalize names that do not matter, but I digress. They break things, and look at you like....”Well, fix it.” This is very disturbing to watch at best. I have never seen such illusions of grander, from anything. Dogs do not behave like this. Yes, they do destroy stuff, but they also look sad after they did. They know it was wrong. They care what you think. Dogs are loving and loyal. It is a constant, no matter what. If you leave for a minute or a year, they are equally as excited to see you...and squirrels.

3. Bird attacks

I think that name sums it up pretty well. Picture this, you are having a nice, quiet breakfast. Then, out of the corner of your eye, you see your cat approaching. If you don't jump and run away out of the fact that the death machine is advancing towards you, you examine. He jumps on the table, at your plate, and drops a dead bird. Now, stop right here. For those of you who believe that this is some kind of present....NO...its not. I can prove it too. If it were a present, you would be able to take it. Yeah, try to take it buddy. Didn't think so. You have to physically remove the cat, before you can move the dead bird. This is just another sign that they don't respect you, at all. Have you ever seen a dog bring a dead animal to you. I have heard about it once maybe. The point is that dogs have enough respect for you to eat those animals outside. They both kill birds, one is just better at it. The ninja assassin of feline ancestry.

My dogs are awesome

They even look mad.


4. Cleaning up

First off, I have never gave a cat a bath. Also, dogs can be very difficult to bath. This, however, is about poop. Everyone poops. The difference is dogs don't poop into boxes inside. Who does that, seriously. I know you have to go outside and clean dog poop up. I also know, however, I would way rather do that. No one should have to scoop poop, and have litter spread all over the floor, because this animal doesn't know how to go outside. For all of those of you who have outside cats. Who also poop outside. Good for you, its almost alright. If A dog goes to the bathroom inside, he is punished. Heck, dogs even get rid of there poop sometimes, its gross, but helpful. A cat can spend 5 hours a day cleaning itself. The constant sound of licking is enough to drive anyone insane. There tongues are like sandpaper against the skin. It drives me crazy. This is probably worse then the poop thing. Dogs do that a little bit here and there, but not nearly as much. All you have to do is say stop and dogs actually stop. They don't look at you like they know voodoo.

5. Ownership

I need to clarify something. You do not own a cat. The cat owns you. You do own a dog. Cats are not pets, we are. Cats sleep 16 to 18 hours per day. If you sleep however, toe attacks occur. If they aren't attacking you, then they are sleeping on your head. In Egypt, cats were worshiped. I think they may have got used to it. This behavior should not be tolerated, but we do anyways. This fluffy little ball of fur is supposed to be cute and cuddle. More like a furry assassin. If it wasn't for the purring, I would never know where they were. This is exactly why the own us. They do what they want when they want. As long as they can, they will. Dogs on the other hand know who there master is, and that they need to listen. My dogs have always been very good listeners. The cat I had before wouldn't even acknowledge me.

If this offended any cat owners. Oh well guys, its in the humor section for a reason. If you need to know where I stand on cats and dogs. It is on the dog side, where its warm, and full of love. Cats are good for some people, but not for others. It all comes down to what you want, the easy life, or the cat life. Just sayin.

Change my mind

I am giving anyone who wants it a fair chance to change my mind about them. If you have a story that I can not argue against lets here it. I want to here the best reasons to be a cat person. Why they are better? Why do so many people dislike them? If you trained your cat to use the toilet I have to hear this one. If enough of you can convince me of this, I wlll write an article about why cats are better then dogs. Right now I am just not buying it. It takes a lot to convince me so let the games begin.

      Everyone does have a choice pet. I used to have a cat, the amount of scratches and torn up furniture I endured made him a formidable opponent. Unfortunately, you can not use ju jutsu on a cat.

      Sorry to hear that you are not a cat lover. Anyway, everyone has the choice to love a pet. I don't love cats nor dogs but i do own a cat which came to my house 8 years ago. Still alive and kicking and yes, caught many dead birds and gave me as a present. Just imagine that I had to bury the dead birds and whack my cat with a broom !!

      Thank you..I am glad someone sees the humor here. I myself am very much against cats. They are deceptive illusive creatures. of course I also believe toys are out to get us while we sleep. So maybe it may be time for less medication. OR NOT.

      Very creative and humorous look at cats. I am a cat and dog lover, but would side with having a cat over a dog any day. I love how they comfort and cuddle with you when you most need attention. You wrote this with great wit!

      Sorry, sir, but I will have to disrespectfully disagree. I have three cats and they do have compassion, and love, and class! But this made really laugh! Great job on the hub!
