Cats are by nature willful and independant where as dogs are loyal and truley are best friend material. Dogs want your company and cats just want food.
Dogs are the ones for me and cats should be outside or in the barn finding their own dinner.

Our cat, Socks, never goes out. She is the most likeable friend you could hope to meet first thing in the morning.
If only I didn't have to have her cat litter tray here with me in the computer room!!

No matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens. It is in the nature of cats to do certain amounts of unescorted roaming.

Dog... its Got To Be, Theres Nothing better Than Cuddling Upto your dog the second reason would be as i like to be fit- you can take your dog on a walk were as a cat just goes wondering off and you may never see your cat again
if you ask me a cat is the lazy persons pet which is very much what todays society is

A dog will love you no matter what. If you tell it off it will look at you with a sad expression wanting a pat on the head to tell him/her that you love it still.

If you tell a cat off it will be very offended and may never want anything to do with you again.

I have cats and a dog and they get on very well together apart from when one of the cats decides that the dog is too close to her and boxes his ears!

I'm an animal lover and love all my pets but when push comes to shove I'd have to admit that I'm a cat person. Can't explain it just am.

Rob-whatever - dead cats are no good to anyone.<grr>

Good Morning Baron. I go along with your sentiment and observations. I would add that I'm sure our 16 year old bitch would not appreciate intervening on the admonishing tactics she uses on the newly acquired Jack Russell pup. So far so good, no rule enforcement, so he is learning well to respect.
Pom would like to add that I think that all pets like other pets for company.

Guinea Pigs
You can go out all day and not worry about them, you don't have to take them for walks, and they only live for about six years.
We did consider hamsters (who live for around two years) but they only come out at night so we'd be giving house space to a creature which transforms hamster food into hamster poo without any interim rewards for us.

Hi there pet lovers. I don't think children like being only pets either Baron.
Pom would have gone with more pets if she'd been plagued with infertility.. Bred 4. 3 like animals 1 doesn't. That's about par for the course isn't it?

Personally, I prefer anything that has fur (apart from big hairy spiders <yikes>)

Brought up with dogs, have a much aged cat, and 2 house rabbits, one being called The Tominator! <biggrin> and his sweet little girly - Lucy Lu.;-)
House rabbits are just pups that are bark-free, and never grow up to bite the Postie, just the post <laugh>

I never go looking for them, they turn up at my door needing food, love & TLC <biggrin>

Now I'm shorn & dipped, am off to visit friend who has 3 dogs, 7 cats, 6 rabbits, 2 GP's and a tank full of African Land Snails <ok>

Always remeber what Churchill said "a dog looks up to you and a cat looks down on you, and a pig looks you straight in the eye".

Also if you look after a dog it will think your god, whereas if you do the same for a cat it will think it's god!

Persoanlly I am a cat lover, I would in fact love to own a Lynx.

Baron Von Trapdoor - I daren't ask, <laugh>

Thank you, he wears the name too well I'm afraid, as he is very partial to wiring of the electrical variety, 'phones a speciality in particular <yikes>

The Tominator also does a 'nice line' in wallpaper removal, and remodelling of internal walls. He is currently working on a serving hatch ... under my kitchen radiator <doh>

And for his recreation, he is adding to the 7 holes (yes, whole holes!) in my hearth rug. <laugh>

But I love him to bits and wouldn't be without him <loveblush>

He is also known to visitors of this house as 'Muggerbun', as that is what he does best ... Mug visitors for a treat, before he'll give them peace to sup their tea.... "Hand over the treat or the shoes Get It!" <devil>

Yes, an inherited title. Something that came along with Grandpapa's old long johns that he left me in his Will.<laugh>

Excerpts from a Cat's Diary

Day 983 of my captivity. My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength. The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.

Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am. Swines!

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of "allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs. I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released - and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird has got to be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now...

Dear Baron, are you perchance related to the Von Trapdoors of Knotty Ash.
As they still owe me for cleaning their drains out two years ago.
There going to be a heck of a stink if they don't pay up
Dear Lambchop13 - The Tominator - What a great name.<biggrin>
