Although I like cats and dogs. But most of the time I still won't touch a dog in the street, especially those dogs without masters. As I am afraid that they will bite me since they are not familiar with me. However, I always think that cats are tame and almost will not attack people on purpose. So I like to touch them. On Monday morning I saw a cat on my way to work. I "say hello" to her and she didn't go away. I was surprised that she was not afraid of a stranger. Then I came closer her and then I fondled her. The cat seemed to enjoy it a lot OK, finally I had to leave and went to work, this cat still followed me for a long way

It all depends on the behavior of the animal, if they are nice I do, but if they are mean no.

I'll glance at the cats first. If they look tame, I'll touch them. I use to touch some cats in the market when I meet them. . I rarely touch dogs as I've never had any dogs as my pets. I'm just not used to touch dogs, not because I'm afraid of the dogs.

let it be wild animals or tamed animals, all of them can recognise a caring person and they won't hurt that person. I have experienced this.....

Well, in the suburbs of Chicago, dogs and cats are not allowed to roam. All dogs and cats must be on-lease if outside the home, and they must be in backyards that are fenced. Never have run into a stray dog here, and come to think of it, all kitties that escape the fenced yard or house, belong to someone.

I think it is a necessary rule for dogs to be on-lease when they go out. It can not only protect others, but also the dogs themselves. Many dogs die because they suddenly run across the roads.

@youless So true. Even cats are safer on-leash or indoors.

Yeah, a barking dog is very horrible. I think sometimes dogs like to bully little children.

There are lots of mongrels and stray cats in our neighborhood but I won't dare touch them especially the dogs. It seems like all the dogs in the neighborhood have skin disorder.

No, because the same. By the way, If you give them some love, they will follow you. Now you have to give that cat something to eat and give some love every time you get there.

I don't mind giving food to these animals. The bad thing is I can't see them often.

Some of strays are very friendly and will come up to people. I will feed them if I have any food and they come up to me. Most of the time I call to the animals and if it comes over I pet it, if it just stops and stares then I just stare back at it and keep calling it til it decides if I am safe to be around & comes up to me or it walks away. If I call and it walks away then that is it.

I stop and talk to all the cats and dogs I pass when I'm in the UK. Currently on holiday in a country with rabies, I just have to admire them from a distance.
