Which makes a better pet: A dog or a cat? – Part 20

You will never know how a certain pet will behave if the cat or dog is a puppy or kitten. You can purchase a dog which behaves very well and you can purchase a cat which pees on the carpet and scratches your furniture. Some dogs will be very nice and friendly and some will be vicious. Some cats are the same way. It depends on how well socialized the animal is.

When it comes to maintenance, cats are easier to take care of. You do not have to take your cat for a walk or let the cat outside every 10 minutes to go to the bathroom. You will need to pick up the dog poop from the yard versus scooping cat poop out of the litter box.

Cats are not completely dependent on you. You can leave a cat home all day and have no problems. Dogs need to be let outside and they also need exercise. You will not have to take your cat outside and walk the cat.

Cats can be very friendly. Dogs and cats will both sleep with you at night and cuddle with you on the couch as long as you socialize with your pet. Knowing which pet would make a better pet would depend on how the pet reacts to socialization after that pet reaches at least one year of age.

I would say that cats make a better pet for somebody who doesn’t have a lot of time to spend with a pet. Dogs make a better pet for somebody who has the time and dedication to give to that animal.
