Are you a cat person or a dog person? Equally beloved as pets, the sides are definitely divided. The age-old argument about whether dogs or cats are better marches on. What makes a dog man’s best friend? And what makes cats superior and more intelligent than their humans? Some say that dogs are like men and cats are like women. Some (or even most) like their pets more than other people. Whatever your favorite, and whatever your reasoning, there is always something to be said about the differences between our favorite pets.
Cats have a scam going – you buy the food, they eat the food, they go away; that’s the deal.
Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are God. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are God.
I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
As anyone who has ever been around a cat for any length of time well knows, cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human kind.
Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.
-Joseph Wood Krutch
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
-Robert A. Heinlein
Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell.
I love dogs. They live in the moment and don’t care about anything except affection and food. They’re loyal and happy. Humans are just too damn complicated.
The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.
