You are a cat person so why are cats preferable to you than dogs? — 4 Comments

  1. I had dogs growing up. While I loved the animal themselves I always found them rather repulsive and hated their need to slobber on me and I never cared for the noise and aggression. I find them noisy, chaotic , dirty, smelly and aggressive and often violent. Yes cats hunt and kill but not in the way that dogs attack other dogs, cats , humans and livestock and wildlife. Loose cats do not keep me from taking a peaceful walk down the country road I live on unless I carry a gun, bat, golf club and pepper spray. Cat guardians seldom force interaction with their cats like dog owners do while walking their dogs often off leash everywhere you go. I hate the gimping smiles as their dog jumps on you as they say don’t worry it won’t hurt you.
    This is not bashing dogs, millions love them. I don’t and really wish dog owners would just keep their animal of choice to themselves in their home and not expect everyone that passes them to gush over their pet.

    • ” hated their need to slobber on me and I never cared for the noise and aggression. I find them noisy, chaotic , dirty, smelly and aggressive and often violent.” Pretty well sums it up for a lot of people.

      • Animals often reflect the environment they live in. Dogs that are poorly socialized and trained and training is not optional for dogs. You may get by with doing little to train your cat to behave but an untrained dog can become a menace. And yes many people have boundary issues.
        I know many people with lovely well trained dogs whose company I enjoy. Notice the word company I have no desire to bring them home.
        I see many dogs daily and I would say that only one or two per day can actually walk on a leash correctly. Dog owners also continue to put collars on their necks instead of using secure and humane harnesses. The sound of an untrained dog gurgling as it pulls on the lead with a collar around it’s neck makes me want to use a 2×4 on the owner.

  2. Great comparison Michael. For me, the reasons are all of the ones that you listed above. 😏 Growing up our family always had a dog because my father did not like cats. While I always loved and cared for our dogs, my heart yearned for a cat. I loved the neighbors’ cats. I begged and cajoled to adopt one, but was not allowed no matter how hard I pleaded.

    Some part of my nature, my heart, has always been overwhelmingly drawn to and fascinated with the feline soul. There really is no explanation. It just feels “right,” like cat preference is written in my DNA. 😻💜💜🐾
