    Heheh. How true, how true.

    Both animals have their merits, but if I had to choose one over the other, I'd choose a dog. Nine times out of 10 they're more interesting to have around and at least acknowledge someone else is in the room.

    Cats are smart, independent, and can be very friendly, BUT they can also be very snotty.

    Dogs are smart, very lovable, and "man's best friend," but way too slobbery!

    I like both.

    Go ahead, just try and tell this cute little girl that you like cats better.

    BTW...dogs don't smell if you bathe them once in a while.

    Cats suck. Plus they make my face swell up like a pumpkin so that doesn't help their case any.

    Dogs are smarter than cats.

    That's right, I said it.

    I also had a friend who had a cat and a dog. He named the dog "Kitty" and the cat "Doggy". You called the dog and he'd come bounding up all happy and pop eyed "That's me, uh huh, uh huh!"

    Call the cat and he'd just sit there..."Yeah, right...gimme a real name..."

    Cats are smarter...

    You can call a dog anything you want as long as you're looking at it making motions. Name that same cat "kitty" and it still wouldn't come to you.

    Stupid animals not knowing English.

    _alliance_ - indoor and outdoor pet. Mostly indoor though.

    And my dog knows english. She knows 'sit'. Although she only seems to know it when I have a treat in my hand.

    Cats. I just don't like dogs. They require to much attention. Cats are friendly but can take care of themselves. They don't smell, you dont have to clean up after them, and they keep themselves occupied. They are also very smart. They wake up at the exact same time every morning and 'request' dinner at the same time every night. They know exactly what your thinking, and have a weird way of communicating with people.

    My cat walks down the stairs.......YELLS....we're not talking meow, we're talking YELLING.

    When my cat sees me, she yells, drops to the floor and rolls around and glares at me if don't drop whatever I'm doing to pet her

    I open my bedroom door, she stands there and yells for a little bit. And looks at me like "'bout time you woke up!"

    If I make the mistake of leaving my bedroom door open, she will sneak in, walk up to me and yell. This can scare the hell out of me at times.

    She always rubs against my legs, hands, face, hair, I don't know why she does this, but she seems to enjoy it.

    Very odd animal. Love her though.

    Why do cat people always say that cats don't stink? You must all have grown immune to the stench of cat piss that seems to fill any apartment/house full of cats.

    Obviously, I vote for dogs. Loyal, loving, protective, and fun. They make good friends. Cats are too neurotic for me; I like to know whether I'm going to get a purr or a bloody hand if I reach down to pet the thing.

    Favorite breed -- Irish Wolfhound.

    Cats don't stink? I prefer my dogs' odors to my cat's. All three smell different. My male shepherd smells the cleanest. The female is a bit more musky. My cat smells consistently like fart, most likely because she *is* farting when she rubs up against me. My dogs don't try to rub me with their scents.

    My cat's breath is also fishier and more pungent than my dogs' breath. My cat's breath smells regurgitated food. My dogs' breath just smell like mud and dog food.

    A cat is low maintenance. All you have to do is leave food out and stay with it once in a while. My dogs will call for me incessantly when they want my attention. A dog needs to be walked. A dog can't poop in a sandbox.

    I don't need to trim my dogs' nails...they grind away on pavement. I can get away with doing anything to my male shepherd and he will stay obedient. I can piss off my cat rather easily even though it's normally the sweetest thing ever. My dogs show me more affection while my cat merely likes me.

    Best of all, I can lie next to my dogs and hug them. A cat is too small to hug.

    Also, my cat is feral. It was born in the exhaust vent of my clothes dryer. It lived for a few days as a newborn with its mom and one surviving sibling on my deck before disappearing for a year, when we found her sunbathing in the middle of street. We leave fod for its mother too. Sometimes wee see the other cat as well. I know it wasnt only a litter of two because while was in the yard with my dogs, one picked up something out of the hedges and started munching on was a portion of a kitten's upper jaw. Of course he spat it out when I commanded him. I suspect crows or raccoons...leaning toward crows.
