Cats-they challenge you

Consider the needs of your fish before acting on your desires.

Dogs, all the way.
I'm allergic to cats and they act like they know it, picking on me!

You will always be my best friend, .

My parents had a freind that was very allergic and Bonnie would always hide from any guests, but she would rub all over him, and sit on his lap. She got shut outside after, but of all people to like . . .

I'm a cat person, I like certain dogs, but yappy ones bug me and certain big ones that aren't on a leash and the owner lets run all over your beach stuff and almost ruin your goggles, dog bites the kids and she says hes nice. . . I beg to differ. Although I love German Sheppard's, Jack Russell's, and and Golden reteivers! Esp German Sheppard, such nice dogs.

Can I say, not really either one?

Definitely not a dog person. Dogs are too much work. They're too noisy and I've been bitten or nearly bitten by too many of them. I've always had cats (currently have just one) and have loved each and every cat I've ever had, but I tend to dislike other people's cats. Too many of them are stand-offish or even aggressive.

If I had to call myself any particular sort of pet person, it would be a rat person. :)

I loved dogs when I was growing up but have not had the opportunity to own one since. Being a single working person does not lend itself to responsible dog ownership.

I gradually became more interested in cats, and currently have four. They are surprisingly doglike in many ways that non-cat owners will never quite get until they spend some time with a cat. And they really need to.

One of my cats, a male siamese, is a far better retriever than any of my three dogs ever was. They are terrific pets.

Still dogs can actually get out there with you and be your co-pilot in the Camry or be your running partner.

I think people will always need these two species in order to be the best humans we can be.

I like dogs more because of their loyalty. Have you watched the movie Hachiko?

I know the story. But couldn't you argue that that dog is not so much loyal as it is hungry?

Kidding!

But to be honest, my cats are capable of loyalty, which is something I didn't know about cats until I owned them. Some of them are much more loyal than any of my particular dogs were, which really surprised me.

For example, I have never had any of my dogs greet me at the door with a stick to fetch, but I have had a couple cats do it.

They are both great creatures. I suggest that everyone find out what they're missing in terms of the species with which they are less familiar.

It's pretty cool.

I have a dog and he always greets me when I get home. I guess your cats are well trained. :) I would also like to have a persian cat. Persian cats are cute and fluffy. :)
