Are you a dog person or a cat person? (I'm a cat person)
Cats. Always been cats. I like dogs, but, like children, only as long as I can give them back to their owners. Perpetual toddlers. I like cats’ ‘you talking to me’ approach to everything. And they’re smarter than dogs (check it out) - try and train a cat to fetch your slippers; they’ll have none of that crap. Dogs have masters/mistresses/owners - cats have staff. Tells you all you need to know.
No more pets for me though since the last one died - I can’t take it anymore.
Dogs all the way. I miss my little Boston.
Cat person! Love their attitude! They love you but they need their space, kinda like me! Lol
Dogs, Cats, Horses, Cows, Pigs, Coyotes, Hawks, Owls, Turtles, Squirrels,Deer, Turkeys and Bears from a distance.
Owned nothing but cats until I was 35, then got my first dog ever - a 15 pound bundle of pure love named Caesar. He completely stole my heart like no other living thing ever has, and because of him, I am now and forever, a dog person.
I dig both and they both usually dig me, but I’m a better cat owner than dog owner I’m sure. Far less messy/needy and when you have the trust and love of a cat you feel more like you had to earn it. They’re generally discerning lil furballs that know enough to disregard their own shit, and I like that in a person. Id take a neurotic cat over a yappy dog, or Id take a chill dog over a high maintenance cat but it’s usually the other way around in my experience. If all chill factors are equal, cats require less attention and money than dogs so unless I get some money burnin a hole in my pocket or need a dog for a professional purpose, I’m gonna stick with cats.
Team Cat, here. Have had many over the years starting with Velvet, the seal point Siamese cat-show reject. She started me on my life long love of all things feline. Crazy cat lady fur sure! I'm down to one now, my rescue Sophie who's now 15. Going forward and wanting to travel may prevent me temporarily from having another, but cats find their way to me somehow. >^..^<
I am an animal lover. Dog, cat, snake, whatever. I have a dog right now and am allergic to cats
Only cats. Truthfully, I don't like dogs. They are either big and nasty or small and stupid. Having been threatened by enough of them while jogging ( never threatened them) I am positively jaundiced about them. At family gatherings they all have these costly King Charles Cavalier terrier mungrels, which are as silly as wheels, and I give them the cold shoulder, and yet they try to suck up to me and want me to be their friend! Family members shake their heads. Can't understand it. I can. They are dumb.
Only cats. Last one went to cat heaven a few years ago, sadly missed. Would like a black cat (what else?) but they are a tie, aren't they. Miss not having one though.
Most of my life I have had cats and dogs. When I can again it will be the first thing I do.
All animals - entered college to be a vet, but got side tracked and ended up an engineer.
But if forced to pick one over the other - dogs, specifically larger breeds of dogs that I can walk, hike, and take to enjoy off leash outside.
Reason I don't have a pet now - too much travel. Not fair to either (especially dogs) to be gone often leaving them home alone.
Animals. All animals. Every species. They are my favorites.
With the exception of human-animals. Because they are the worst.
@Stevil It's not me gravitating towards them , it's them gravitating to me .
