I love cats. I'm definitely a cat person. They are wonderful animals. I don't really care for dogs. Some dogs are pretty cool, but a lot of dogs just annoy me or tick me off.

I love cats. They're entertaining, cute, and don't need peoples' attention all the time.
Not only that, but they're actually really impressive creatures if you think about their capabilities; definitely some of Nature's better work.

I've got a question though, for those with a cat:

Does your cat give you any reaction if you ask if it is a familiar?
I'm curious because I asked my cat several times back when she was still alive, and she always reacted angrily to the question - and she was usually a pretty relaxed cat.

Not that I was in the habit of having conversations with the cat, the question came up during a conversation (with humans) about witch hunts.

I'm not sure what to make of that. But I'm sure if I asked my cat that, like always, they wouldn't understand what I'm saying, they'd basically just be thinking "Ther the hooman goes again, blurting sound outta ther face". My cats don't understand many words. Just their names, and words like "food" and "eat" or "it's time to eat" and little else.

I've had cats & dogs, and I definitely prefer cats.

1. cats are fine left home alone - dogs will wreck your place and crap/piss if it's angry you went out

2. cat's are mostly quiet/have softer "voices" - dogs will bark, howl, whine, & annoy neighbors and keep you from sleeping

3. cat's use the litter box and clean themselves (Cats can be trained to use the toilet!)- dogs are high maintenance, you have to walk them & take them out to do their business everyday....and they don't clean their feet....but they do clean their privates.....and any other animal's privates that let them,

4. cat's are cleaner than dogs & cats don't have to go outside at all (my cat is a total indoor cat) - dogs will eat feces, vomit, and anything else that strikes their fancy....and you kiss them.

5. cats are generally calmer than dogs - I don't like hyperactivity

6. cat's are selective, you have to earn a cat's trust/love - dogs are doormats

I don't hate dogs though. They're good for guarding, keeping kids busy, & providing rescue, farm, and disability services. That's one thing I like most about dogs, you can put them to work. Dogs are good workers. I'm trying to get one (a service dog/Labrador retriever) now for a family member who is disabled. If that dog can help him, I'll love it to bits....I'll still love my cat too.

My cat would do what she always does when I talk to her,...... meow, roll her eyes and walk off .

Dogs are more active and so am I. I enjoy walking, jogging and playing catch with my dog. So I will say I love dogs more than cats

Cats are not loving. They are terrible creatures. If you have a farm or something, they are good for killing rats, and that is all they are good for. They are terrible creatures to have as house pets. When they rub up against you, it isn't to love you, it is to mark you with their scent as property. They don't care when you get home from work. They look at humans as tools and nothing more. There are famous stories of dogs waiting for their owner's return long after the owner had died. Cats don't do that. Cats might make noise to wake people in a fire or when there is an intruder, but it is never to save the people, only themselves.

Lets not forget that they are disease-ridden bags of evil. They defecate in a sandbox, bury it, wade through it, then jump on your furniture, counters, and you with fecal matter in between their toes, then lick it "clean" along with the rest of their bodies, functionally covering themselves in their own waste. And don't forget the pissing everywhere, making the house reek. Plus they tend to like sleeping near people's faces and have actually killed some of their very young and very old owners by asphyxiating them. If they don't kill you by suffocation, they can give you parasites by sleeping with their assholes to your face.

Dogs can do some nasty things too, but they are loving, they can be bathed, and they can be trained to stay off of the counters and food prep surfaces.

In short, I HATE cats.

Dogs are dirtier, but apparently that's a good thing? :

Cats can be trained too. Cats can also be trained to use the toilet. Cats can be bathed too, although depending on the cat and what age and how often you bathed them will determine if they tolerate it. If your cat pisses everywhere, it's either you don't keep it's litter box clean enough, or you haven't gotten it spayed or neutered. All those raging hormones can make a cat ornery, especially male ones. Not all cats sleep near people's faces, and if you can move, you won't asphyxiate. If you can't move, then you shouldn't let the cat have access to your room (close door). They like to cuddle and like warm, soft places (in your bed with you). They don't intentionally kill anyone. Cats are independent and have a life of their own that is not wrapped up in it's owner's life. I think stories about dogs waiting for their dead owner is because they don't know what to do with themselves without their owners, unlike a cat who can take care of itself and move on. Cats can be lifesavers too:
