    Do you have a cat or a dog? Which do you think is the "better" pet?

    I got 2 cats, 1 dog.

    The dog is higher matinance, the cats are less. Though one cat pretty much ignores me unless he wants attention and will keep bugging. The other is nice, you just pick her up, put her on your lap and she'll stay as long as you like; comes in at night around 10, cuddles up on a blanket and stays till the morning. The dog takes quite a bit of upkeep, so I recommend cats myself.

    I guess I'd prefer a dog, just for the more 'energetic' side to 'em. However I have neither, infact I have no pets at this time.

    None at the moment but I'm definitely a dog person. I can't stand cats.

    We have two cats, Malcolm and Nick. We have such a small yard it would be really unkind to have a dog. Malcolm and Nick are both mutts we picked up at the Humane Society.

    we have two cats and a dog.

    i love all three. but i prefer cats overall i think due to the cuddly factor. i can't cuddle with my dog, nor would i want to.

    I love cats. Deal with it. :D Unfortunately, I am currently catless at the moment as my poor cat, Rocky, died last year almost overnight; he was in perfect health one day, playing and running around the house, and dead two days later from a lung infection he developed mysteriously.

    I am the crazy old lady with lots of cats.

    I wouldn't mind a dog, my kids want one so we'll probably get one in the next year or so.

    Wow, what a loaded question! LOL!

    Me, I've got one (very spoiled) Siamese cat. I love cats and I love dogs, but right now, my dwelling and my lifestyle are not suited to a dog, whereas a cat fits in very comfortably..... Cats are SOOO low-maintenance in comparison to a dog! Nonetheless, both cats and dogs are deserving of love and attention, as well as an appropriate home, and if someone can't provide that they should not have one or the other or both as part of the family.

    I vote for cats.

    I was bitten by a dog once, a dog I was told was docile. It was a highly unpleasant experience.

    I hate dogs. Can't trust them.

    Cats make great Chinese food. Dogs are much better as pets. Either way, both get gravy, don't they?

    Don't ask a cat to save you, they'll just look at you as if you're crazy. A dog will build a raft and organise a large group of ferrets to help pull it across a lake to get you. :p

    I own 3 dogs. I like cat's and dogs. But if I had to choose only 1, it'd be a dog because they are more playful. *goes and plays with one of the dogs*

    Dog all the way!! I have a pure bread West highland White Terrier and i love this dog. She was actually our first pet and we got her in 2000. Today is actaully her birtday, she is a new years dog.

    We do have one cat that my mom and sis love but seeing as dad and i are alergic to cats it does not stay inside a lot. Only when it gets really cold outside does it get to come in. It really is a fat spoiled cat for being an outside one.

    I'd take in a stray cat if I couldn't find another home for it (I've fallen for that trick a few times already), but wouldn't go out of my way to get one. Most of them don't seem very interested in being around people, and I can do without the litterbox experience.

    For dogs? I'll fall for the most implausible hard luck stories and take them home and feed them and hug them and squeeze them and call them George. Most of them seem to enjoy being a part of a family, and they're willing to poop outside and feed the lawn.
