  • I like both for different reasons, I guess. Puppies and kittens are SO cute, and both are great for companionship...but dogs are more fun to play with and cats are good shoulders to cry on only when you need it, they don't need constant love and affection like most dog breeds do.

  • I am a dog person. I've always had a dog, since birth! Except for the first couple of months of marriage! :D Then we adopted a doggie. But 3 years ago a cat showed up on my door step. We started feeding her and she got fat, quick! :D Needless to say she had babies, we have all of her babies except for 2 boys. I love my cats! So I guess I'm both, but I really love all animals.

  • I'm more of a cat person, but my dh hates cats. So we have a dog, but dh doesn't care much for her either, she's a mini pincher/ dauchsand mix. He says she's a sissy dog! She is about 7 years old, she doesn't care much for the kids, she doesn't bother them, but would rather they didn't bother her either! LOL....she is my dog, by her choice! I am really not a dog person, I like to look at, pet, and play with other people's puppies, but don't have the patience to raise one. But I got Lily about a year ago, already trained and everything, so I do love her!

  • I am definitely a dog person. My dogs are loving, loyal, fun. and they don't make messes in my house.
    On the other hand, If my barn cats don't stop crapping in my bedroom closet and peeing on my diningroom walls, I AM going to HAVE A MELTDOWN!! I came home from shopping, walked into my house, and UUUGGGHHH!! Now I will have to stay up scrubbing my walls and cleaning the spot in my closet!! I have 10 people coming for dinner tomorrow!!!

  • growing up i always had an outside cat but never one i really grew close to. we had an indoor dog that i was in love with so i always thought i was more of a dog person. DH and i adopted a cat a few months ago for our mice and i am absolutly in love with her! after having a house cat to compare with house dogs, i much prefer cats. they are so much more calm and every since we have had her i don't feel so up tight about things, just a more relaxed atmosphere.

  • I love everything and anything furry (including my husband! lol, j/k) ! I love cats for their intellegence and dogs for their compassion. I think hamsters are comic relief! Rabbits are really good pets, too, and great for kids. Horses are graceful. Cows are like big, edible dogs. I even like chickens (they're pretty loyal!) . The only mammal I think I hate is a pig. They're mean.

  • Dog all the way and my twin sister is an extreme cat person. I don't enjoy cats but I love training and spending time with dogs - I have a white mini schnauzer. My son is allergic to cats too so, no kitties here.

    I did save 2 cats once and took them in but I just don't ever make any connection with them, although they stick to me like magnet.

  • You know I am both. I really love my cats and my dog equally. I have never not had a cat and a dog. I have three silver tabbies and a brindle Pit Bull...so you can tell I like striped patterns LOL. Other than my fur babies...I love rats. They are the most awesome caged animals clean, eat anything...sweet. I love lizards and snakes too.
