i prefer to have a cat because its not very hard to keep it as a pet. i don't need to give it a bath regularly they don't consume lots of food. most of the time it just eat left over food or it can just catch a mouse for food and they don't get sick easily not like dogs. what i hate about cats is they pee on windows or walls making it smelling very pungent but male dogs are also like that they also pee on chairs, DVDs etc. i think the cat is the lesser between two evils.

i think dogs can be taught easier than cats, you can teach them how to pee or take a dump on a certain place when they are still young.

I definitely prefer dogs. I've had both, but dogs are just wonderful animals. Pros of cats. small. don't need walking. less dependant. Purring. got to love purring. Cons of cats. poo in the house, meaning there's a box of urine and excrement, which for some reason many people choose to have in the room where they prepare food (or in neighbours gardens) tend to jump onto worksurfaces with paws that have been in said box of urine and excrement. their hair makes you itch more than dog hair don't encourage you to have extra exercise. Dogs. Cons. need a lot more care than cats. walking, training, etc. harder to arrange holiday care. can require more grooming than (most) cats. can be noisier than cats Dogs. Pros. they're dogs. what is more wonderful than a dog. good incentive to exercise. don't go to the toilet in the house, once trained. don't tend to walk on food preparation surfaces. may discourage burglars. what do I love about cats. purring. what do I hate about cats. I actually dislike the smell of cat. and I don't like how you can see their bumhole a lot of the time. when other peoples cats poo in my garden what do I love about dogs their pack mentality. their unconditional love. the feel of their ears between my fingers. waggy tails. what do I hate about dogs. their lifespan. they don't live nearly long enough.

i totally agree with all of those you said, so informative and great explaining their pros and cons. I also hate dogs' lifespans they really live in a short time, i now believe the happier you feel the faster it will be taken from you, life really is unfair i also like the dogs mentality and that unconditional love, i remember kicking my dog once when i was really in a bad bad mood, he moans but he still went to me to lick me, i was really touched by that act
