Do you like to keep a cat or a dog for your pet at home, and why? Does anyone here keep both cat and dog at the same time? Do they fight? From my experience, I had cat and dog before, but they just don't get along very well, so I just send my cat to one of my friends. What do you think?

dogs are really good guards. no matter who may come into the house, the dog barks. a welcome bark to housemates and friends and a bark of warning if it is somebody who is unknown to the dog.

Interesting topic.unless your wanna make a dog or a cat a member of your family,I don't think it is a wise move,for it's really a burden to you if you are a busy person.

Once my family had a dog and a cat,but they did not get on well.They did not fight,but they also did not play together.Last year my brother bought a coloured cat,this cat get very well with the dog,they always play together,they even eat together.

we have a cat and a dog at home. the cat comes to the house then opts to stay. that's how it always happens that's why we have cats at home. as for the dog, it is either given as a gift or we buy them from the petshops. we never had problems with cats and dogs quarreling. our pets have always a common bond of friendship among them.

I'm really a dog person and do not really see cats in the same way as I do dogs. Reasons for me in liking dogs is that once you make that connection with them, they seem to be able to judge your moods and feelings. They sometimes become this silent best pal who's always gonna be there for you.

I always wanted to keep a dog in the house. But not right now. I'd probably wait for the right time to have my own house since I am still living with my mom and my mom is allergic to dog furs. My grandmother had a cat once but I really didn't like cats. I have seen several shows in the television showing the good relationship of cats and dogs. I don't know why your pets didn't seem to get along.

No, I live in an appartment and I only have a parrot. I think the best place for dogs and cats is a house with a yard. They would be happy there.
