I honestly love both so much!
But, cats are better economically, they don't smell, you can teach them to go to the bathroom outside or even in the toilet. They are the perfect combo of snuggly & independant.
We also travel a lot, and are not ready to take on the responsibility of having someone watch your dog, or boarding them. With a cat, i just have my neighbor check on them every other day. They're so much more easy...and vet bills are much cheaper too...
BUT, when i get older & travel less & probably when i get empty nest syndrom in 10 years...i think i will want a dog.
