Hey dog people

If you are a dog person and don't like cats, WHY?

I am a cat person. I love cats and always have. Most dogs annoy me. I like cats better because they are so small and cute. I love having a little kitty curled up on my lap or next to me. And they are so funny, they do the craziest things.

  • I 'm allergic to cats.
    I think though it's easier to love a dog, they give unconditional love, they are always around you, with a cat, it more like you are on their time.

  • I used to be just a cat person. Then I got a dog for my kids. We have had several dogs now. Bo I fell in love with at first sight. He was my companion for 10 years, longer than my marriage lasted. He died of cancer 2 years ago and I still get sad.

    Now we have 2 dogs and 3 cats. One dog is very beautiful and well behaved. The other is cute and happy. I think about giving them away (only to very nice homes). Dogs do just as funny of things as cats. I wish I could find another perfect dog.

  • You are my exact opposite. I love a big old mastiff curled up all over my lap! (that kinda sounds bad.) I like dogs because they love you ALL the time. I do like my cat though, when she allows it.

  • I think it depends on the animal. I have both cats and dogs. My cat only seems to like me, I can do anything to her including clipping her claws without a fuss. I have a bulldog who is my huge baby, and thinks she is a lapdog. Now puppies, they are another story with me. Puppies are wild and annoying, I can't wait for ours to get older (he is 5 months).

  • well dogs do funny things too. in fact most cats stop doing as much funny stuff when they get older. they still do it, just not as much. i have a 12 year old lab that still does tons of funny stuff ever day. she is ALMOST as important as my kids, and she is lots more important than my ex-husband. lol! cats aren't caring enough for my taste, theres not alot of unconditional love from cats. they expect you to be there for them, whereas pet dogs lives for their people.

  • I don't like cats because they poop in a box and I have to clean it. I think litter boxes are soooo nasty!
    Dogs make much better pets *JMO*
    My dogs are nice to cuddle with, they are smart and know several tricks/commands. I honestly don't understand why anybody would prefer a cat over a dog!

  • I love both but I definitely lean more towards being a dog person. Cats are kinda aloof, dogs are doofuses. But I like doofuses...just ask my husband. ;)
