    cats OR dogs?

    Look into your heart, be honest and tell us whose fan are you? Kittens or puppies? Feline or canine? Miaow or whoof? Just interested how many ppl have a pet :)

    I say cats. They are more stupid than dogs, more static and less spatially distinctive. They smell less especially when neutered. They do not require to be walked out.


    My cat's stats:

    15-106 damage to furniture
    -50% all activity
    +40% movement resist
    +300% to enhanced sheding
    +20% bonus to furr licking
    100% chance to cast cute motionless posture when idling

    I like cats. Cats are smart. Dogs are pretty stupid though.

    Cats are completely useless wheras a dog can save your life, defend you, and give you all the respect a cat would give you, only more.

    So eternal unquestionable servitude is a sign of intelligence?

    I'd say the animal who manages to land itself in a position where all it has to do all day is eat, poop and sleep definitely has advanced further.

    Dogs can surely learn more = theyre more intelligent.
    A cat is surely an animal I would choose to be if I had to choose...JOHNNYs got point :)

    Cats can actually be taught tricks. The problem is that the only way you can get the cat to perform the tricks is to first starve it and then use the lure of food to get it to do tricks.

    Cat trainers usually make the cat associate food with a certain sound and then use a tool that makes the sound like a pen clicking for example to get the cat to perform the tricks.

    Why not both? They each have their pros and cons.

    Cats are certainly not stupid in the least; they just are far more selective as to when they will do something. You can't usually command a cat. But that is where dogs come in: you can tell them to do something and they will. They are more useful in practical ways than a cat.

    As far as companions, though, either are great and make good pets (with proper training!). No one should ever have a pet if they are ignorant/don't care about their care and well-being. Veterinarians are your friends, people!

    Cats.
    We've had our share of traumatized cats - very sweet, wonderful cats who'd be scared to even enter the house, in fear of getting kicked.

    I don't expect everyone to like cats, but if you dislike them, leave them in peace. There's no need for any sort of animal abuse.

    Dogs love you more easily, I think. Cats are rather selective. My parents cat (he died last year) loved my sister very much. He was ok-ish with me, but very much loved my sister. The cat we had before him - and she was actually the smartest cat we ever had - very much cared about me.

    They're more individual. Bit like me I guess, tend to bite the hand that feeds me.

    I'm definitely a cat person. The constant "omglolthatsawesomeyoureagod" mode dogs are in at all times gets annoying fast. Cats are intelligent, cunning and elegant in comparison.

    Cats own. They're not dumb enough to pick up a stick you threw. They just look at you like "Well you threw it! Geez..." and sleep.

    Re: cats OR dogs?

    I like both, at the moment we have 3 cats. A while ago someone tried to drown a bag of kittens in a drain outside my house, I found out when the mother cat was going berserk at the top of the drain. I rescued them and we ended up adopting two of the newborns and their mother.

    They have grown a bit since these were taken but:

    Speck (He's small and speckled)

    Simon and Flower (Simon is the kitten, my wife named them)

    Simon is now kinda huge for a cat, can play fetch and worked out how to open doors.

    Cats are less likely to get you sued.
