    Dogs are better than cats, but pudus rule all

    That is a really cute animal.

    Anyway I brought this up in the questions not worth their own thread but I thought I'd bring it up here too: Do older female dogs and cats go through menopause? Has anyone experienced that with their pets? Does it make a difference if they're fixed?

    I would never get a dog... cat, maybe. I thought about, but I don't really have space for it now. Plus, I'd prefer not to leave alone all day when I'm at work, because that seems kind of... mean.

    I could totally make a living selling them to women as purse pets. What women wouldn't want Bambi in their purse?

    In many ways, he is.

    That's what surprises me so much. Our cat actually wants to interact. Also, he doesn't really kill the furniture that much. Give him a scratching post, and that pretty much takes care of his scratching. He does like scratching and biting though. And he likes loves slippers.

    I believe only humans go through menopause. Spayed dogs don't menstruate.


    Also, I wouldn't want a living thing in my purse.

    Except maybe a small lizard, if I didn't have to feed it and it didn't poop, that might be kinda badass.

    I was brought up with dogs, but I like cats better.

    Oh, here's a great quote:

    "A dog looks up to a man. A cat looks down on a man. A pig looks a man straight in the eye and sees his equal."

    And let's face it, piglets are pretty adorable:

    Having a dinosaur would be the greatest.

    Cute! IIRC pigs are smarter than dogs too.

    I prefer cats the best myself. I do enjoy dogs but they're smelly & needy & high maintainence. Would like to get one for my daughter though, but they're kind of expensive.

    Too bad our knowledge of dinosaur behavior is somewhere between "slim" and "insufficient for raising one as a pet". :(

    I definitely prefer dogs, though cats aren't bad if you raise them as dogs.

    Actually, aside from a dinosaur, the one pet that I'd want the most would be a skunk. Baby skunks are probably the most adorable creatures on the planet other than Rachel Leigh Cook:





    This cat seems to think that these baby skunks are its kittens:

    My cats are the best of both worlds. They don't need to be walked but if I take a walk at night they will follow along (but I don't need to pick up their crap). :)

    wow, I can't believe cats are actually beating dogs.

    Cats are just a useless waste of space. A bag of fur. If someone is attacking you, how is a cat going to defend your home?

    If you want home-defense, get a gun.

    If you want a cute little ball of fur that will sit in your lap and purr as you pet it, get a cat.

    If you were attacking someone, would a cat be able to stop you?

    If it were a really cute cat you might get distracted and start playing with it instead.
