Are you a Dog or a Cat Person?

I love dogs. But they get a bit much (reference the video in VIDEOPUBLIC). I'd have to say I'm more a cat person. However, you may be neither. You may be a horse person, people person or parrot person. Maybe you will convert me!

By the way, where are Animals in the Soapbox categories?? This shows you how fixated you all are on people. There's more in the world than just humans you know. We keep speaking of 7 billion (people). There must be many trillions of animals on this planet.

My wife is a crazy cat lady, so I have no real option but to be a cat person or she'd divorce me :-p but seriously, I've always found cats a lot more likeable than dogs for some reason. Spooky timing by the way, I was having this very discussion on the soapbox twitter page earlier today!

Haha were you. How can I find it btw? There should be a link. One of the nicest things about cats is having an inter-active alarm clock that sits on you (read: your face) and will not be turned off.

I think it has a lot to do with your family & experience. We don't own a dog now, but I have always been around dogs. They are always my favourites. Why? Dogs are smart, loving and very useful. They can diagnose cancer, find drugs, guide the blind, protect property. Cats? They can ............ , and , they can ............. and last but not least ................. . (Fill in cute but useless activities yourself).

@Peng, I so love your bullshit story. Kindly eat these facts for dinner instead of the dogfood you have no doubt piled on your plate :)

Ok, I have to give it up for the crocodile fighter. But that is out of the ordinary, don't you agree? Even the owners are amazed.

I don't think crocodiles can feel something like respect. They must not have any interest in cat fillet.

I do actually prefer cats simply because they're less hassle, but if I wanted my house to be more safe then I guess it makes sense to get a dog that can protect the house.

I'm both. But dogs are very selfless. A friend of mine, some five years back went into her office. She had a fight with her boss who accused her. The boyfriend and the dog were in the car. But the dog was going mad in that car, It howled and barked. Finally my friend came back from that meeting. Her boyfriend asked her did something happen in there? Of course they put 2 and 2 together how the dog knew and felt all of this.

When you have a dog, the dog thinks you're king and they are there to serve you.
When you have a cat, the cat thinks they are king and you are there to serve them.

I am a total cat person. I can stare at cat's eyes for an hour, how their retina contracts, all the colour shades in there, they look like 3 dimensional crystal balls.

I am a cat person. From what I know, starting from my grandmother, this has been the way with most of the Roberts'. They are the ideal house mates. Better than humans I should say. They sleep a fair deal, they don't complain when you wake them (mostly), they don't smell (mostly), they are more minded towards hygiene than most human beings, they eat sparingly, they can be left alone without much trouble, and they are the best lap warmers in the world.

And from mine. Cats have a mystery and a grace. That's why the Egyptians worshipped them.

Dogs absolutely. I love talking to my dog. It's the sound she makes, and how she tilts her head, dogs get an emotional message from the words you say. They understand, they really do you know! Not maybe the words, but the emotion and what it is the person wants to say. If you rebuke a dog, that dog will crawl and cower. They are so sensitive, so loyal. A dog will die for you, they'll go through the fire for you. I don't think a dogs love knows any limit. But i seem to be almost the only dog lover here. I dont care :)

We've always had both, and it's impossible to choose. Dogs bring action and fun and protection and cats bring their brand of comfort and and joy. We have a dog and two cats and I would not do without them for anything. Actually I prefer them to my kids :D

I took care of a friend's cat for 12 days recently. They're very slow learners, maybe just not wired to learn or take any instruction. If you don't have that sort of interaction it's not worth it for me. Plus she didn't like my dog. The dog wasn't bothered either way.

If you don't like cats, try a Siamese. Siamese are sensitive and magical creatures who meet you in a special space which is half way between human and cat. They are very funny and smart as well.
