Why do people pick dogs instead of cats?
Dogs make noise. Cats don't.
Dogs make a mess in the house. Cats don't.
Dogs leave yucky smell. Cats don't.
Dogs wreck stuff. Cats don't.
Dogs get aggressive and bite people. Cats don't.
Dogs take off and you need to chase them down the damn road. Cats can roam the house and outside without incident.
Dogs seem to require overall too much maintenance. Cats seem more independent.
Having a cat doesn't add a whole host of chores like dogs do.
Cats are easy to deal with. They are very discreet about where they litter. It took me a while before I ever noticed what their poop looked like. Dog poop is left by them anywhere and they piss on things everywhere.
What is nicer? Starting the day to the aroma of Febreeze, or the 'smell of dog'? Where I live, I walk out of my room and am greeted by the smell of dog.
Don't like it one little bit!
