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.

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 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. :-)

There is plenty I haven't seen in my own state and surrounding. I can't afford afford to see Denmark, Scotland, or Australia. I would be lucky to see Hawai'i and/or Alaska.

It can be humid in March, but ask folks suffering in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere how they're doing with this summer's heat waves.

People with COPD can't breath when humidity is high. If it's just hot and below twenty percent humidity, it's easier to breath
