would you like to have cats or dogs as a pet at your home??if yes why you choose it??for me i would choose cats over dogs.it's because it is easier to take care of cats rather than dogs.besides cats are usually cleaner than dogs.while you can smell a dog's smell.i never smell anything from my cat.it doesn't have any ordour.cats are smaller in size and you can even carry them to make them sleep on your bed.cats can be allowed to stay in the house most of the time.but dogs are too big in size and cannot be allowed to stay in the house.cats are more cute than dogs.cats are not so fierce like dogs.sometimes dogs can be dangerous as it can bite you till bleed.and the only cure is you must get injection from doctors while cats just bite you in a soft way and didn't hurt you.so you do not have to see any doctorse.eventhough i do have two dogs and one cat now but i still prefer cats.i do have dogs because both of the dogs ownselves came to my house.so we just pity them and kept as my family's pets.

i never like a dog and couldn't think to have them as a pet in my house. I love cats very much. They are so sweet and soft. We have one indoor cat, she is persian + siames. So cute and soft. My niece gives her bathe every 2 weeks. I just can't get close to a dog. I am afraid of dog and i don't like them when the saliva comes out from their mouth and their tongue keep out of their mouth.

Well right now I have cats and a dog in the house. Over all though I think in the future it will just be cats. This is mostly due to health reasons and not being able to give the dog the activity they deserve. Doing a lot of walking isn't possible anymore. Thankfully she's on the older side as well so it's not a problem for her but if we got a new dog it would be. Cats are far more independant and do not need the attention that dogs do on a normal basis, at least that is my experience.

Sounds like you're being a bit prejudiced to dogs. Cats aren't always cuter or less fierce. We used to have a very territorial cat who would bite and hiss at anyone in our house who wasn't family. But she was a sweet cat, and she was just protecting her home. She's not with us anymore, though. Right now I have an outside dog and an inside cat. I don't know whether I'd be able to choose one or the other, because they both have their pros and cons. Like you said, cats are cleaner and they're a lot easier to take care of. You don't have to bathe them and they never have accidents. But my cat is technically a kitten, so she is a little messy. She knocks things over all the time and flings litter out of her litter box everywhere. But I know a puppy would be just as messy and destructive. However, cats are a lot more stubborn and they never listen. They only do what they want and don't usually obey. But, dogs are usually always eager to play and obey and do whatever their owners want to do with them. Dogs are a lot more loyal and fun. So it's too close and I don't think I would ever be able to choose one or the other. I like both dogs and cats, and I couldn't pick just one of them. They're about equal in their pros and cons! Happy holidays and have a good weekend. ~Taymouse

I know some cats that can leave a pretty good bite too, don't let them fool you. We took in a hurricane survivor kitty, we named him Binky, he was cute and sweet, but he'd bite you in a heartbeat, without warning. We figured it was from what he'd been through, he was found at my hubby's work wandering around, and he was declawed and couldn't defend himself. I have both dogs and cats as pets. The cats come in and out as they please. They are less maintenance than the dog, but the dog got to stay in. She was my angel. She ruled the roost, and was friends with the cats too. But in general, cats are easier to handle I'd say.
