Just a bit of fun after reading the "Blood" topic.
Cats, all the way.
There's a reason why they're called man's best friend.
As far as pets go, dogs are too smelly and needy for my preference. Cats are cool and laid back (my wife and I do have two dogs, though. And five cats!).
Dogs are too needy. I have 2 dogs and only one cat (after the other cat had an unfortunate run in with the public transportation system) but I prefer cats.
I'm mildly allergic to both so neither! Also, cats dislike me because they realize that I know that they are evil. :wink:
Wise words. :POriginally Posted by Pulp Fiction
No question - I'm definitely a dog person.
Dogs, for sure! I think that's because of a need to feel needed. Cats are just too darn independant!
I prefer an animal who's way of saying "I love you" doesn't involve a tounge. Plus, cat's don't take up much room. And no one would suspect to be afraid of one either, so they can also be a sort of "secret weapon"!
Getting them to do your bidding is the tricky part, but I think I know a way: tuna.
DaveC - Strange, that's exactly the reason why I prefer cats over dogs. :P
Dogs. Cats steal your breath when you sleep.
I prefer neither. Animals don't belong to humans, they belong to the wild.
Most domesticated animals are unable to survive in the wild, and even if they could, they are happier when they are around people who love them and spoil them anyway. Animals and humans can learn an awful lot from each other. That's certainly true for my family!
Myself, I'm a dog person. This is me and my dog Zoey.
My dad likes his cat, Sloan.
by brother prefers iguanas.
Hey all, I have to apologise a bit here.
When I set this poll up I was very drunk! I just got back from the pub and decided to browse a bit. This is not a habit I make often so I hope you will forgive me.
First off I am a cat person simply because they look after themselfs.
Does that include Humans too?Originally Posted by Grand_Lunar
Tongue isn't always involved...
Only problem with cats, and I experiance this from my future wife's cat all the time: it's her house she only lets you live there to serve her.Originally Posted by Grand_Lunar

Neither cats nor dogs.
I raise dust bunnies...
Ever notice how since the Taco Bell commercials featuring the Chihuahua ended, the texture and flavor of their taco filling has changed? :wink:
I need to make a long journey and bring this up on GLP.
No, say it ain't so!Originally Posted by Maksutov

Cats. They're independent, which I rate a lot higher in terms of character than doglike obedience, they aren't needy and they use the litter box.
Unless they're marking their territory, or just conveniently "missing" the box. From then on, good luck trying to get them to "overlook" that particular spot. Plus the box needs to be changed on a regular basis. If you forget, your nose knows. :-?Originally Posted by jokergirl
Dogs are smart. They will linger by the door, and vocally let you know you need to let them out. Then they will leave the door and pay you a visit, and with decisive vocal and body language, let you know it's time for them to go outdoors.
Thanks. I had a cat (he recently died ) and I know about that... usually they are accidentally "missing" the box when they are of the opinion it needs to be changed.Originally Posted by Maksutov
But still, I'm lazy and I don't want a pet governing my daily schedule...
My cats haven't needed a litter box in years. They very nicely "go" in my neigbours vegetable garden.
They also have a "game" where they go to my other neigbours garden and tease the dog. They have worked out the length of its chain and know where to calmy sit just outside it's reach! Not only does this show intellegence but it shows an almost human level of spite!
Cats, most definitely. Why?
1: Dogs smell. Cats smell too, but less offensively.
2: Cats don't say hello by sticking their nose in your crotch.
3: Cats are clever enough to go out and exercise on their own, and find their way back.
4: If you forget to feed a cat, it will go and find food elsewhere (sometimes they do this even if you are feeding them regularly!). If you forget to feed a dog it will starve.
5: Even the largest domestic cat won't knock you flat with an enthusiastic greeting, or completely immobilise you if it decides to sit on your lap.
6: Cat's won't drive the entire neighbourhood mad by barking at anything that moves. (My next-door neighbours have two large dogs, both of which bark incessantly at me when I set my telescope up in my own garden!)
7: Cats don't attempt to copulate with your leg.
Ah, sorry to hear about your pet. As you can probably tell, I prefer dogs, but have had cats as pets. A few of these cats actually exhibited individual personalities, so to me they were somewhat unique. The one I miss the most was intentionally run over by a SOB who swerved to kill her as she crossed our subdivision road. This was per my wife who didn't get the license plate number or a good description of the vehicle. I wonder why...Originally Posted by jokergirl
Hehe. Cats can be so evil...Originally Posted by Amadeus
Like sitting *just* out of reach when you're reading in a comfortable positing, and demanding to be petted.
OR sitting exactly in your field of view, whether this be a newspaper, book ot the keyboard.
My cat used to go and claim back the bones we gave to our neighbours dogs... they were barking like mad, but didn't dare to stop the cat who was dragging a bone nearly as big as himself.
Not really. Excellent points otherwise, but I find claws digging into my knee at the slightest move quite immobilising.Originally Posted by Jason Thompson
Yes, I love cats. Being on my way to Evil Empress myself, I can appreciate the finesse of evil in them. 8)
