You haven't seen very many dog breeds, have you?

I figure for talking animal side kicks, the fact that cats are generally able to wander around freely without causing issues is a bonus (assuming you don't have alien/fantasy creatures like Kyubey). Though I'm sure Kyubey would approve of the brain parasites they transmit.


Most dog ears on anime characters i ment and most dog ears are floppy....

In my opinion people who stay indoors tend to like cats more. I personally like cats because they are easy and wont take orders like dogs do. The total obedience thing dogs have makes me feel sorry for them.

J-List recently blogged about the history of cat people in Japan. Might help to explain a few things:

"There's a lot of love for cats in Japan. You might already know about Maneki Neko, the iconic cat statue placed in your entrances for good luck, but this love of cats doesn't end at figures. It was only inevitable the cutest parts of cats, their ears are tails, would be added to cute people for a double hit of kawaii -- and the catgirl was born. This feminine felines trope in anime and games has an origin that's much older than most people realize.

Many assume the catgirl is a modern idea, yet Japanese artists drew catgirls as far back as 1700s. These first images of catgirls looked like cats that changed into a human-like form, similar to the Khajiit from the Elder Scroll games or the Betelgeusians (Meow) in Space Dandy. The modern depiction of a catgirl, with a young human body and only cat ears on top of the head, was the character Yukibango, from the 1920s. Today these catgirls can be seen everywhere, thanks to nekomimi."

You need to meet more dog breeds. They can be just as stubborn as cats. Chihuahuas and shiba inus are two particularly stubborn breeds I'm familiar with. If you let it, a chihuahua will train the human and not the other way around.

Am I a person meant to be taken seriously? Just let me stay blissfully ignorant.

To provide my short one liner.


Dogs are loyal. They follow orders and will protect you!

Cats are fickle, and sleep everywhere, like over at your neighbors house on Friday nights because you work late... Wait a minute.
