Which makes a better pet: A dog or a cat? – Part 73

Dogs have masters, cats have staff.

Independent. Self reliant. Beautiful. Timeless. Classic. This list could describe many things, from cars to popular actresses. However, in this instance, it describes cats.

Cats are wonderful pets and loving companions. Anyone who has one or two cats would gladly agree that watching their animals play is a daily highlight. Anyone who is a cat owner will also tell how wonderful it feels when their animal curls up into a lap and purr. These four legged fur babies offer their owners unconditional love and amusement.

In comparing cats to dogs, we must compare the animals to the owners. Dogs are great companions to the physically active.

It is a different story when it comes to dogs. There are few things that smell worse than a wet dog.

Litter boxes are a definite unconvinced for any cat owner. It is a hassle to scoop out the litter once or twice a day. However, because cats have an indoor bathroom, the need to walk the animal is not an issue. Rain, sleet, snow, or amazingly hot weather~ the cat does not need to be let outside or walked. Dogs do not have this luxury. A dog must be walked or accidents will undoubtedly occur. The bathroom
