Which makes a better pet: A dog or a cat? – Part 59

I have lived in a house with eight cats, and I can tell you before I even get started, I have had enough of them. They are nice and fuzzy when they are kittens, and everybody likes kittens, but the problems arise when the cats get older. In Egypt, they were held sacred, I know that, but that doesn’t make them any better than dogs. Just because they were worshiped by a long dead race of polytheist god and goddess worshipers, doesn’t in the slightest enhance my view of them. Actually, I view it a rather downgrading for the ancient Egyptians. They spent their money on temples and gifts for cats? Strange if you ask me, not to mention a waste of money.

Again, I have lived in a house with eight cats, and just because I dislike cats, doesn’t mean I didn’t like our cats. They were pets. It was rather unfortunate when they left or died, but I wasn’t advocating the replacement of each of the missing cats. We had eight. It slowly whittled down to where we had three. Then it shot back up to eight. Then back down to three. We now have four, and hopefully, that is where it will stay. I dislike cats immensely. I was trying to get rid of the two new ones we just got, but the rest of the family wanted to keep them.

I am a dog person. Always have been, always will be. I’ve had German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Labs, and some others. I loved them all as if they were family. Not only are dogs easy to love, though; they are loyal, understanding, compassionate, friendly, and I understand that most of you have heard this all before. I just give the truth credit where it’s due. The dog is superior to the cat, although there are some breeds of dog that would not hold up against a moderately sized cat (like the Chihuahua). I like to call dogs smaller than a basset hound “rat dogs”. Anyways, dogs are better than cats. If you want a pet that will sit in your lap and purr when you pet it, fine. But if you want a pet that can protect you, guard you, be there for you, and the most important of all, care for you, it is wise to choose a dog.

I suppose I am one of the people who think cats maintain the most allegiance to those who feed them. That is why they run away all the time. If you are feeding them a certain food, and they find someone else who will feed them a better food, they will probably run off with the chef. A dog will eat food from anyone, but that doesn’t form a bond. They don’t call dogs “man’s best friend” for nothing. On top of all this, dogs are older than cats
