Cats or Dogs?

Are you a cat person or a dog person? 

 

I didn't own a pet until recently within the last 2 years. Before then, I was always a dog person - everyone I knew preferred dogs over cats. The few encounters I had with cats had always been negative: they would hiss at me or scratch me. However, when I had the opportunity to adopt a kitten, I couldn't say no as she was just so cute. I still like dogs, but if I were to choose between having a cat or a dog as a pet, I would definitely go with a cat.

 

Things I like about having cats:

-they clean themselves

-they rarely stink

-you won't need to worry about pee or poop accidents

-they sleep most of the time

-they are very independent

 

What are your thoughts on this? Cats or Dogs?

Cat. They're independent.

I had taken on the old family cat. It was rather incontinent. Vets said it's just old age not much to do about it. I put it down.

They sleep when you're awake 🙂 They can be very nocturnal.

 

I have a theory about dog and cat preference. I think those that tend to be authority-minded like dogs because they're trainable and can be made to be obedient.

Cats don't care what you want them to do. I like that independence in them. Just keep the food flowing. When it stops then they'll just move on. Or eat your corpse. 🙂

Either one - like 'em both.

 

Things I like about having cats:

-they clean themselves - mostly

-they rarely stink - mostly

-you won't need to worry about pee or poop accidents - mostly, depending on how fluffy the cat is, and whether or not they have an issue requiring antibiotics!

-they sleep most of the time - mostly

-they are very independent - generally speaking, depending on the breed, or personality

I’ve had cats in the past, but prefer dogs.  I have a Bichon-Frise who is now 17-1/2 years old!  She’s almost totally deaf, almost blind with cataracts, and sleeps most of the time.  But, she is doing unbelievably well for her age.  I love her to pieces and will really miss her when she goes to fur-baby heaven, which could be any time now.  But, until that time comes, I’m going to love her and spoil her rotten, and ensure that she enjoys the rest of her life.

Cats all day! Don't get me wrong I don't mind a well trained dog and I've had quite a few dog roommates over the years that I told many a story about here in the lounge but thanks to @will13am 's meddling I got a little mad and deleted all my lounge posts on the topic. So now that the topics been brought up again.....when it comes to dogs I used to say if I wanted children I would just have them!

 

Every cat I've ever had has been independent but as smart as a dog or at least they think they are. They come when they are called, house trained....no litter box needed ( except after vet visits and the inevitable end of life issues.) A drippy tap or a rain barrel suits them just fine. A giant feed bag of cat food and they are just fine. 6 months of the year they have a cat door and an open porch window and the rest of the year they just need to climb a tree and knock on a bedroom window to get in. Unfortunately the secret basement entrance died with Max aka @maximum_gato (12 years and we never found it so we could pass that knowledge onto our newest fantastic felines Marcus and Minty.  Big bro and his little sister who were born just down the road from the farm I'm currently hanging out at ( currently in the dark with no potable water waiting for BC hydro to get the power back up and going.....but the wood stove is crackling away and its a good as time as any to hotspot off my phone and use some of my data for once!) Anyhow heres the little muckers when they're not out on rat patrol.

 

Edit: well the bf killed my phones battery mid upload of my pic.....but the power is back on but to the detriment of the milky way and the night sky bit of let down really....

They've grown up so fast!They've grown up so fast!

And you may want to consider the following while making the above declaration. 🤣
