Dogs are loyal, friendly, and more affectionate than cats.

If cats were big enough they'd eat their owners. Dogs are big enough and are still loyal and lovable.

I love all animals, but I just prefer a dog to a cat.

I bought my Standard Poodle as a pet, she became my companion and taught me about love.

Well, technically I am pretty much a “any kind of animal besides possums” person. But, if I could only have either a dog or a cat for the rest of my life, it would be a dog. Despite the fact that they are more work as far as training or going out of town, I can’t imagine my life without a dog.

I love both, but I currently only have a cat, so I voted for cats!

Of course your dog loves you. And the neighbor, delivery person, and any stranger who tosses a ball. If your cat loves you, you have crossed the human-animal divide and you know true devotion.

I love dogs, but cats are more practical for my lifestyle. I work full time, don't always come home straight from work, we may have a concert so we stay in the city, cats don't eat everything in site

Cats are so different. I just love their independent personalities. But I do like dogs too.

Cats are so much more independent.

Cats are independent and do not need to be cared for in many of the ways a dog does. Plus I haven't found the right dog that I would get rid of my cats for as of yet. (I have 5 of them)

I've had at least one indoor cat for 53 of my 64 years of age, with the exception of 6 months from September 1977-March 1978. A cat is comforting, comical, and charming..

Because of my crazy work schedule, cats are easier to have. I don't have to take them for walks. :-)
