    I have a passing interest in cats but I get more satisfaction being around dogs - I turn into this complete idiot who makes a fuss of dogs something terrible. Love dogs!

    You?

    The reason I am posting this topic is because I believe almost all of you are going to say dogs!

    Both. I have a cat and two dogs. They both have something to offer. This might sound cheesy, but they both offer unconditional love, even if dogs offer more than cats. In high school, I had a friend who had a cat that acted like a dog. He always wanted attention. He like to follow people around and he could do tricks as well.

    I want both. Because I like both. Also, they can keep each other occupied while I'm at work.

    Why does it have to be dogs or cats? Can it be some other animals like birds?
    If I have to choose, then it depends on where I live. If I live at a place that's warm most of the year, dogs. If I live at a place that's cold all the time, cats. I ain't walking dogs in the snow!! LOL!

    I like both, but have 2 cats (sisters) because owning a dog is a much bigger commitment. More of a family pet, in my opinion... we had 2 border collies growing up though, such good dogs...

    Your pets are adorable! I can see by their furs you take excellent take of them. How do you get to coexist without killing one another? Just curious.

    Depends on where you live and how much time you spend there, I guess. Dogs really need at least a yard and some breeds need five acres. Cats can live anywhere.

    When I moved back to the farm, I got two puppies and a kitten. (Cats are needed for mouse control - the mice are really awful when you live in the woods.) They all thought that the kitten was just another puppy. They'd be wrassling around in a big ball of thrashing fur. If you tried to "rescue" the cat, he'd just dive right back in.

    Nothing against cats, but I like dogs and birds. Have one of each. Both are very rambunctious. The bird gives the dog commands, which he ignores, getting her annoyed. Can't tell you how funny it is.

    Cats and dogs get along great if you want them to. Though it helps if the dogs are too big for the cat to eat.

    Never liked having one without the other, mine have always gotten along really well...also I don't like little dogs but do like having a pet that can sit in my lap at times.

    I love spending a little time with other people's dogs, but I am not cut out for dog ownership. Currently, we have three cats.

    I always used to have cats like a pet, including 2 parrots and aquarium with fish. But, I lived with my best (female) friend, years ago, and she has sausage dogs (bunch of them).
    Anyhow, I like them equally.

    Yeah same here...

    I like dogs but having to get up at 6 am daily to walk them outside, in the snow is beyond my ability. So I have 2 turtles and 6 fish. Everything is on auto, the food, the lights, the thermometer.

    I go out of town every month for at least 5 days so that's a necessity.

    Animals are great. I'm not a speciesist (or specist, if you prefer).

    Both. My brothers and I grew up with cats and dogs. We have had birds, turtles, iguanas and a bunch of other different animals but we have always kept birds and dogs. They have always gotten along just fine.

    Elephants for sure. Lol. Well i was this extreme Cynophobe till few years ago, but now i've come to love dogs(thanks to my cousin's german shepherd) due to indirect therapy. But i m still terrified of the more ferocious breeds like Bloodhound, Doberman etc! I absolutely adore Golden Retrieverz. And as for kitties always had one in my home while growing up! So they and their cousins are my second most fave animals!!!

    I have two cats, and four dogs. I love my dogs, and care for the cats, because they were in need of help, when I seen them as kittens, and one of the cats now is 18. But I don't have the interaction with the cats as I do my dogs. But one of the cats thinks it's a dog anyways, even breaks up dog fights.
