I think the question should be Wolf or Lion, which one would you want to try and shift from the sofa?

Firms are losing millions of pounds because workers are pulling sickies after the death of a pet dog, according to a new report.

One in four pet owners said they have been too upset to go into the office when their four-legged friend died.

Not so for cats I guess....

Losing a cat or dog that has been part of your family sometimes for 15 years or more is very upsetting... Wouldnt say it was pulling a sickie.

What are the statistics for cats and dogs pulling sickies?! My dog was lookin wuff yesterday. (Terrible yes) I won't be appearing at the comedy festival needless to say!

I definately prefer dogs. Its a good excuse to get out and walk and they are loyal companions. Cats are a bit boring aren't they? Don't they just sleep and make you sneeze? ;-)

I'd have to say dogs, and I speak as someone who has had both. My dogs Pepsi & Max are just great characters and such fun whereas my cat Blossom was much more self contained and once she grew out of kittenhood any interaction was strictly on her terms.

When I had to take my dog to put down because he had in-curable cancer it was very upsetting. I was devastated and cried for hours. He was my dog and I'd had him since I was 10 years old so in affect I grew up with him, he was part of the family.

It didn't stop me going into work the next day though. I warned my supervisor about what had happened and said I might need a time out during my shift if I got a bit teary. It was the best thing for me as it really took my mind off it. I would have felt worse grieving and crying at home. I lasted the whole shift without getting upset.

I love all animals but would rather have my two dogs Sabre (German Shepard 13yrs) and Lady Compton (Ex-Racing Greyhound 4yrs) as I enjoy walking them

Oh yeah I'm definately a dog person. Cats make me sneeze and itch. When I did have a cat as a child it attacked my little sister all the time, puked wormy sick behind the doors, brought half dead mice and birds into the house all the time then decided to latch itself onto the family that lived across the road. We gave the cat to them as it clearly prefered them, then a week later it got run over, its leg was broken in several places and they had to foot the bill :-)

Cats are evil

I always think cats are very sinister. They give you a sort of evil look. I'm sure collectively they are planning something......

There is no wrong or right answer. It all depends on the person and what they feel comfortable with. As i said earlier I would rather have my dogs cos I like going for walks, but I also have a couple of gerbils and a rabbit. If I had my way I would also have a kitten.

Mrs Mark.....Ibstock says that cats are devious and only want you when they are after something. I think she might be getting confused with herself! ;-) If I do not appear on these message boards again it is because she has read this. She knows I love her really! :-)

If it's your pal and you love it, it doesn't matter if it's a cat or dog.
