I think if I had to have one or the other I'd go with a dog...but I love my kitty too.

oh come on, it's unfair! why i can't choose both? since ever in my home there were both, cats and dogs
to be more specific - one cat and one dog at the same time :P
Also, this sums up the relationship between my cat and my dog atm.
edit: youtube tags hate me, clickeh.

cats. i like dogs for short periods of time but hated living with one. my mum got a dog and its just not for me so im glad i dont live there anymore. my cat still lives with her (my house isnt allowed pets, apart from fish, and theres no-one to care for her when i go to spend a few days with other family members, so mum looks after her for me for now).
my cat is 8 years old, had her since she was born in my dining room. she is very clean,playful, very loveable and extremely loyal to me - she isnt too keen on my stepdad as he isnt a fan of cats. when i visit she never leaves me alone, always tries to sit with me and at night will curl up on my bed and sleep next to me the whole night. she knows when i am ill or upset as she becomes quite protective to me and knows when i just need a cuddle (which is what is needed sometimes). they just know their own mind, what they want and who they like, and strike me as a bit more intelligent than dogs are.
dogs on the other hand have a tendency to smell worse than cats (cats are quite clean, like to bury their droppings) and are more likely to just snap one day and attack someone (cos when have you ever heard of a deadly cat attack in the papers). i just dont see them as being as cuddly as cats are. mums dog will be nice to anyone who gives him attention and biscuits (i.e. the builders who are in at the moment), whereas cats are picky about who they like, you have to earn their affection, the builders dont like her as much, and neither does my stepdad, so she decided to get even by leaving cat prints in his newly concreted kitchen floor, a dog would have just attacked, whereas the cat went with a much more sneaky payback. also if you dont look after a cat well and it doesnt feel loved it will just run away and find someone who will look after it, whereas a dog might respond with much more violence.
