well cats are usually calm and if they like you they'll cuddle up with you and sleep on you a lot! if they don't like you then you won't have much fun with them. dogs usually like to run and play. they'll come to you for attention and will be constantly at your side unless confronted by something distracting, so really it depends on what you like.
Lulupop, perhaps think you only have room for one or the other. watch, - http://sorisomail.com/partiha/188658.html .Both are great pets but some people do seem more suited to one or another. Stay away from pet shops & puppy mills. Go to a shelter. These are dogs that are going to be killed if not adopted. There are sites that have dogs ready to be put down in as soon as hours. Like Pet Pardons (fb) &shelters have cats by the doz. Keep in mind that a dog will need much more care and attention than a cat. If you are not a person that spends a lot of time at home please get two pets.Puppies need a lot of attention where kittens can entertain themselves pretty much. We don't want you adopting a pup just to return him to the pound later because he chews or because he grew too big! And do not leave a dog on a chain in the backyard for hours on end, it is lonely out there for a social animal. A doghouse (heated in winter or insulated and with air circulation in summer) is fine for a few hours at a time but never a lifetime.Remember to spay/nueter& keep shots up to date. Good Luck with your selection.
Both are good. But, to my mind, sometimes cats are better. It may also depend on human character. If you like home and sometimes solitude, cats are good companions. My cat Gregory sends you his love and best wishes.
Both can make wonderful companions, but you must answer several questions in order to make an intelligent choice. 1. Can you meet the needs of your proposed companion? For instance: a dog should be walked at least a couple of times a day, not just to tend to their need to eliminate, but because they need the exercise, both for health and to drain what can be potentially destructive energy. Cats don't need to be walked, but their litter boxes need cleaning at least twice a day. 2. Can you afford the expenses which go along with being a pet guardian--not just food, but vet expenses, toys, (in the case of cats) litter and litter boxes, (in the case of dogs) chew bones, harness and leash, and so on. Becoming a responsible pet guardian requires a commitment to your pet's health and wellbeing. If you're not prepared to take them on. You're better off waiting.
I like them both.But it depends on your responsibility level.Dogs need more attention,energy,and resposibility.You have to walk them,play with them,bath them.Cats you bath them occasionally,feed them,and change their litter box.You play with the kittens but once their older they no longer want to play(most of them).Cats will occasionally ask for love and attention while dogs always demand it.Dogs will be there when you are sad but so will some cats.It really depends on how much time you are willing to put into loving and caring for your pet.Because they live a long time.You can't just give it away when you're bored with it.
I believe dogs are much better company. They are able to be trained easily, are very faithful, and love unconditionally. They are excited to see you when you come home, and they will sit by your side mostly all the time. I had a 2 cats and I had 4 dogs in the past (all at different times), and I would never have a cat again. Cats don't listen and jump on the table and counters that your food is served and eaten from.
Cats! I have a four month old kitttyyyy and when im sick she'll cuddle up with me forever! and when i fall she will realize that i scraped my knee and lick it. they love to sleep all day so you can lay with them for 5 hours +! i do it all the time, and then i will throw her soft ball and she will bring it back just like my dog while im in bed. Im currently reading Catching Fire by Suzanne Colllliiiinnnss!, and she will sit and listen to me read aloud to my sister. when im on the computer she will chase my screen saver (fishes) that i bought especially for her. and when i meow to make fun of her she will come by my side and lay with me. as a matter of fact shes next to me right now. but one thing that rocks and sucks is that she goes in a litter box but you must clean it all the time or you can get one with a lid. but she/he may not go in it of they've used it more than 3 times...cuz i go to school 8 hours a day and not really home but that's why i have 2 litter boxes. OVER ALL - Cats are better and less maintenance.
