    Nope. Neither are better, just different.

    Because the cat lets him think so…..

    Our cat and those long gone all acted like dogs and our current meowster raised our dog and he is very dog like.

    Well, you get;

    Helper dogs

    Seeing eye dogs

    Sniffer dogs

    Police dogs

    Guard dogs

    Dogs that are taken into hospitals / care homes to cheer up the patients.



    .....And then you get cats. :rolleyes:

    Kill wildlife

    Crap in other people's gardens.

    If he likes you a dog will fetch your slippers. If a cat doesn't like you he'll crap in your slippers.

    Next question?

    The cat is smart enough to say "I'm not doing your job; get some ignorant human or some pansy dog to do for you. Now shut up while I nap".

    I can respect that.

    Yeah man, my friends' cat 'Olly' likes being stroked when he needs food. But when he's had a belly full of dinner, the bugger will scratch you if you try that stroking thing again...

    Reminds me of my first wife :sneaky:

    Always glad to see you.
    Never sticks his butt in your face.
    Performs an actual function.
    Never whines.
    Doesn't crap in the house. (as a matter of practice).

    Cats are better. They are free, and you don't have to feed them. And they do a good job of keeping the rodent population down.

    Wait a minute, that is true of snakes, too. Snakes better than cats and dogs both? Um... they are both possibly trying to kill you. Both better to keep outside.

    Cats are nicer to pet than snakes. And it's easier to keep cats outside. Cats ftw.

    All the k9 needs is the opportunity to go out side, on a regular routine basis

    In Arizona, everyone has pet snakes. They keep them outside. Most should not be pet because, you know, venom.

    I like them both just the same but cats are lower maintenance, for the most part. Ours does his business outside - no litterbox here.

    On the other hand he’s a great hunter and because of this I’ve had to remove 1 large rat and 2 small possum from inside the house in the last couple months. They were gifts and of course we were grateful. But no, you know? We have an apple and a peach tree and they come for the fruit on the ground. He just lies in wait for them, the low-hanging fruit. :D:D

    That's great. I had a Bengal who liked to stand at the top of the stairs on the second flow and howl deep, guttural howls. About one per second. Like a male lion standing on a rock and announcing that it was his territory and other lions should beware. Bengals have a lot of characteristics from their wild leopard great, great grandfathers so I assume that's what he was doing.

    Very loud. Ten to thirteen howls... and he'd always end with one meek, little, almost kitten like squeak.

    You never knew when the declaration would start so I was never able to catch it on video.

    Oh good...HS likes to have fun!

    Though some say he's just playing with his food.

    Little Bit, our English Fox Hound,is aggressive and loud and always wants to chase the rabbit or squirrel...and is always really pissed at me when I won't let her.

    I explain that their life is hard enough without some idiot scaring the sh!t ot of them. I don't think she's paying any attention. But...

    She's different with cats. She approaches the neighbor's cat very passively; like she wants to say hello. Unfortunately the neighbor's dog decides that that is the perfect moment to chase the cat. So they've never met.

    Daughter-in-law brings her cat when she stays to help care for me. We put a gate up to keep Little Bit from going to the level where the cat stays because we aren't certain what her response will be.

    Maybe someday. I've a feeling that Little Bit is comfortable living with cats.

    Call your dog.
    "Charlie, come here- sit!" (Cat's don't mind unless food is involved, or they are in the mood.) :whistling:

    We define our guitar shop customers into two categories: Dog people and Cat people, but it’s different than what you think. A dog creates his whole routine around your schedule, so if you work nights he adjusts to your schedule where a cat forces you to adapt to his schedule and demands that you adhere to his routine.

    A dog person brings in his guitar and wants your best work and is patient and happy with your work when they pick it up whereas a Cat person waits until the last possible minute before he needs it to bring it in, even if it has been needing work for months and when you are done they nit pick the work for no other reason than to make you jump through some hoops so they feel like they are getting their full money’s worth.
