Hey! I thought that this would be something fun to do-see what people think about cats vs. dogs! lol! I was also wondering if anyone knew why I couldn't post a Thread on the 'in my opinion' section? lol-well, let's see if this post gets any heat on the whole cat vs. dog thing!

I think maybe the "In My Opinion" forum requires we've been active for a certain amount of time? Not sure, but I can't post there either, and I'm newly joined, so I bet that's it.

Thats it. I am not sure how many posts you need but I think it is 100 and you need to be a member for a month.

oh! lol! I watched that, and it was really funny and cute! lol! Well, I am in love with both cats and dogs...
I really LOVE how cats seem more individual, and when they DO give their love, it seems just as good as that from a dog, and makes up for when they don't. Dogs, on the other hand, are generally more loving. My Sherbert is a REALLY SWEET cat though, and he's only mean when I cuddle WAY TOO MUCH! (I can't help it, he's my baby!) lol!

I can't choose. They are both so different... I love them both! (Although it is much nicer to cuddle with a kitty in bed than a 150 lb dog!! )

I can't choose either... I love all animals....

I have 5 dogs and 4 cats and I must say I am more of a cat person I guess. Don't tell my dogs that though.

I love all my furry kids but the dogs can be a pain, from the barking, they stink and I have to baith them all the time, with 5 they compete with each other all the time, very messy with a dog door and all the dirt they track in, and yes barking again, I have a yapper that drives me crazy!

My cats are all very loving and I can usually always have a cat to give me attention with 4. They are always so clean and 2 of mine cuddle under the sheets with me. If I did that with my dogs I would gag from the fart smell, bad gas! My cats are presious to me and I think they are way smarter too, especially when you find the dogs trying to eat one of the cats poo.

I love both....I have 4 cats and 1 Dog. But that is because my husband hates dogs. He loves cats though. My cat is pregnant and he wants to keep all the kittens.

That video so reminds me of my dog and one of my cats. I have a 45lb. pitbull. Her and my orange adult male cat go rounds like that. It is so funny, because the cat always seems to win. The dog comes out of it with scratches all over the top of her head and all over her nose. The cat looks untouched. It is pretty funny.

I used to be more of a dog person, but now I think I'm more of a cat person. I've never been without a cat, but I think I could live without a dog. Before we got Ed, we had been without a dog for about a year and 1/2. I'm sure I couldn't make it that long without a cat.

The thing I love most about dogs is their loyalty and their aim to please attitude - you don't see that in cats very often!

What I love about cats is their independence and cleanliness.

That is funny, I used to be a dog person, and have always had one, they went every where with me and I would have gone crazy if I didn't have one, I never even liked cats, I usually had one, and it was just an out door thing and didn't care if I had it or not, but I lost a few dogs for this reasone or that, and ended up getting a ragdoll, and I am hooked on them! I couldn't live with out my (now strictly indoor babies) but Don't really care for dogs now, I don't even want to get one right now, im sure one day I will get another (my daughter wants one) I like them and all but I find it is so much easier with out one and they were such a pain, I just necer noticed. The funny thing is I like other peoples, and havr a paper route, I buy dog cookies so I can put it in with the paper for their dogs, and every time I see a dog I get them a cookie, there is always a bag of them in my car But I have to say I am a cat person now

This is a tough question, but I am and always will be a cat person. I love dogs, especially my 2. For the most part, it seems that most of the dogs I am around, haven't had any training, and that can get irritating after a short while. That is the humans fault, not the dogs.
As my husband likes to point out, I would take in any cat no matter, mix or breed, or background and would want to keep them all, so how come I don't want to take home every dog I see.
My husband was a confirmed "dog person" before we married. He had never been around cats, so he believed he didn't like them. He became hooked after our first kitty, and is now a huge cat lover!! He baby talks them, he cuddles them, and to think, this guy said he didn't like cats at one time.
My kids are just plain ol' animal lovers, dogs, cats, birds, squirrels, it doesn't matter if it swims, flys, walks, or hops.

I have to say that I do prefer cats, although I've had some herd-dogs ( Border Collie, German Sheps) that are very close to being cat-like. My rottweiler-mixes just aren't that endearing to me -their propensity to kill smaller animals is what turns me off the most. And my hens are pretty darn cute, too, and lay such good eggs!

Our 2 Old English Sheepdogs are a herding breed, and I agree they sometimes act more like cats than dogs....LOL Neither of them realize they 85 and over 100 lbs to be a lapdogs, but that hasn't ever stopped them yet.

I am just an animal lover...\\

My dog Gigi is definately a human baby with fur ... she is very needy ...


My childhood dogs Peggy ( a 30-45 lb heinz 57 ) and Joey ( 125lb GSD with likely wolf mixed in) were easy to train , take care of which was good since they lived to 16 years and 10 months and 13.5 yrs...

My cats are also highly different... Zoey being a formal feral is very loving but fiercely independant , yet is so easily trained I call her red dog .... Kandie is a cats cat she is cuddley on her terms and will tell you off if you bug her...

My fish evan have different personalitys...

I am a dog person but I love having my cats as I've never been without them.

I'm definitely a cat person. I like dogs and I'd like to maybe have one some day (I'm going to go to the pound and get a big old shaggy mutt), I much prefer cats. I'm a lot like a cat....I like my solitude (even though I'm social), I'm neat, finicky, work on my own terms and have a very strong attachment to home.

Hi (i'm new),

I like your question! I used to have a dog, he was a black lab and at that time i thought cats were just moody menaces lol. I've only had my cat a year now but i've really come to notice some great cat qualities in her... like she's: Optimistic, doggid, opportunistic, spiritual, observant. Theres so much to learn and love about a cat.
Heres my cat philosophising in the garden :

P.S. Has anyone seen the movie 'cats and dogs'? lol seemed a little bias, but was the dog's explaination of what happend in Egypt not really funny?

Wow, i could never choose..i love them both! I definitely choose both over rabbits any day though- my rescue rabbit is evil!
post #22 of 28
I was always a cat person, but loved Pomeranians... so in high school I got one. And then I was a dog person, and still love poms... but purely out of convenience to me and the welfare of the would be dog, I am now back to being a cat person. In my living situation it's too hard to have a dog. If I had a yard to let them out in maybe it would be different. Either way, I like smaller animals... I'm not into big dogs. I think they're cute, and enjoy playing with them, but that's not for me. Plus big dogs = big poop. Enough said!

I used to be both, but ever since I got mauled my a dog and had to get 47 stitches......yeah, i think you all know which I prefer

This post made me laugh so hard!! You are so funny!!

I've never had a dog though I sometimes am very attracted to other people's dogs. The big turn-off for me, like it is for shelly, is the smell. My experience with dogs is that they often stink. When I went camping with 4 girlfriends, I had to share the tent with the dog after he had rolled around in animal poop all day. (When you don't have any of your own camping equipment you don't get much say-so). Yes, I made him take multiple dunks in the lake by playing a very purposeful game of fetch with him that evening, but still... pee-eww.

I'm a dog person all the way!

I like dogs because they are super easy to train, they're devoted to their owners, and you can take them on walks and go on trips with them. I just love dogs.. I love all the different breeds and their personalities.

My cat acts like a dog... and I did teach him to sit, but I just loved dogs... I like being able to take my girls to the park and let them run around, and they know all kinds of tricks and were just super easy to train. I also like the fact I can take them to work [vet clinic] and they won't freak out like my cat does. That's part of the reason I dislike cats so much, at work most that come in are morons. They are so freaked out they try to eat you. I practically got jungle rot from some louisiana babies that freaked out in a room when I was weighing them... they were climbing the walls and everything. One thing I hate is getting bitten by anything, but at least a dog I can throw down and pin their head down... cats are so quick and so small, and they can manipulate their bodies so well it's almost impossible to not get bitten unless you let go when they are going nuts.

Dogs are just SO less moody.

If I had to choose between cats and dogs, it would definitely be dogs. I have had them all my life. They are fun, loyal, dedicated, smart, friendly, sweet, etc. I like kitties too, but I am so very new to them- I just got my first kittens(I've lived with them before when I was littler, but now they're mine and I take care of them in every aspect), so I'm not as experienced with them as much as dogs. I know very much in the dog department and that's where my comfort mostly lies. I love how you can just feel your dogs' love- you are their whole world and that draws me closer to them.
I love and care about animals very much- all of them.

I would have to choose cats. I grew up around both, and there was never a time at home when we'd have one and not the other. When I moved into my husband's and my first home together, we already had Buddy, our choc lab, but we later got my two kitties and it occurred to me suddenly how much I really missed having a cat around. While they are much less likely to do what their told than Buddy is, the pros outweight the cons big time!
