    Neither. Or both.

    I like both animals as pets. Some people are solidly one way or the other, but each animal has their good points and their minuses.

    All pets are pretty much a nuisance and demand attention. But they are also valuable as company - to a limited extent.

    I voted cats due to lower maintenance, but you can have more fun with a dog.

    Much more joy in a dog. Cats are boring.

    Dogs.

    A cat is just some random varmint. Dogs, on the other hand, are fundamentally part of the human experience.

    Especially the perfect dog, the female Labrador Retriever. Best overall temper and personality in my book. Male labs are pretty spectacular as well and are usually even more beautiful.

    As I'm not a cold hearted, dispassionate, cynic it has to be dogs of course. Specifically female German Shepherds :love:

    Excuse the double post, but I believe you have this the wrong way around. This is probably truer of the human from a good dogs point of view.

    Have I mentioned, yet, that some of my best friends are fish?

    They're equal unless the dog is a chihuahua.

    I'd rather have dogs if I had to choose one or the other! But cats are great too! Haters suck!

    Fish are pretty, but having had a large aquarium or two growing up I don't have any illusions about them being cuddly or sympathetic. They're more like little swimming robots.

    Maybe it's their love of eating poop as it falls out of another fish's ass, scarfing it up before it even hits the bottom. Maybe it's the fact that they eat like half of their own babies. Maybe it's just the fact that they don't have eyebrows.

    But not quite as much as most cats :p

    Cats are vicious killers. As are many dogs.

    Sure. They're both predators. Doesn't mean that my dog is going to attack me in my sleep or anything.

    Hey, I've never caused any harm to a Cat. I don't like them so I won't adopt one, but it's not like I go cruising around with a shotgun looking for them.

    Both and neither, depending on what you're comparing them to.
