Who Are Better Pets Cats Or Dogs?

Dogs are O.K., but what's not to love about cats? They are fluffy puffs of purring cuteness and can be just as fun as dogs or even funner. If you get a good cat, they can even be loyal. I had the funnest cat ever. This is a true story y'all. My cat Zachary was a real practical joker. He would hide in the bushes, waiting for a stranger to pass by, then he'd run out of the bushes, and pretend that he's going to pounce on them. The stranger always thinks that he's going to leap, but to their surprise, this crazy cat would stand up on his hind legs and wave his two front paws in the air. It was the funniest sight. One day my father had a visitor over, a business partner, and Zach was up to his old tricks. As the woman was going to her car, he leaped out of the bushes and frightened her so badly that she stuck her keys in the wrong car... I can go on and on about my crazy cat, but I'm afraid it'll be too long. Zach was the best pet ever.

I have four Beagles so I can't say I don't like dogs, but I'm definitely a cat person. The difference is three of my four dogs live outside but all four of my cats live in here with me! :) I complain a lot about dogs and the way they behave, but cats can get away with anything with me.

Cats really can get away with anything... I let my cat sleep in the bathroom sink. I didn't dare move him because he looked so adorable... I wish I could sleep like a cat.

I wouldn't trade my four cats for any dog in the world. I don't have to walk my cats in the rain and snow. I just have to feed them and clean their litter boxes. No dog ever curled up in my lap and purred while I petted her. My cat is my alarm clock. She tells me when it's time for dinner and when to get up as well as go to bed. I love every one of my cats, past and present.

Yes, cats are very low Maintenance. They practically take care of them selves. That's what I love about them. Dogs are great, but I've never seen them cover up their poo after taking a dump. On the other hand, I've heard many great stories about dogs rescuing their owners... A huge plus for the doggy's. Then again, I've also heard some great stories about cats rescuing their owners...Another plus for the kitty cats.

I've seen that hind leg thing before. It sure makes me giggle. I think it depends on the person. Some people are dog people. Others go for the cat. Some even have both. We did for a while. Now we have just our dog. Suits our family fine.

I had a dog and many cats, but never at the same time... My mother wouldn't allow it.

Dog is of course a loyal friend,I can always believe him cause he will never cheat me.While to me cats are also lovely,I really love them.You can see how prety they are when they run, how lovely they are when they are sleeping and how idyllic they are which can certainly affect you.I have a dog and a cat home,I really cannot leave them,I love them and they love me!
