Cats rule.

Indeed my cats rule the house and all in it but they are worshipped.

LOl that the difference I suppose - personally I prefer a dog who believes I am a Living God ;)

One of mine is. I sometimes feel a bit suffocated by him. He never, ever leaves my side and because he is only 3 pounds he's pretty much always snuggled under my top.

He had a bad start so I tried to make it up to him and went over the top grin he's a lovely little dog, just clingy.

Dogs have owners, cats have staff!

If you feed a dog the dog thinks you are a god.

If you feed a cat the cat knows they are a god.

Sorry!!! Bloody fridge magnets.

I can't start how high maintenance they are. Cats totally rule.

My cat's clingier than the dog...in fact she beats up the dog if he comes over to me for a cuddle.

Fuck cats.

Hate cats, love dogs.

Owning a dog must be like having another child to look after. My magnet says 'Happiness is being owned by a cat' thebody. smile

If your neighbour feeds your cat nicer food it will move out. If my neighbour feeds my dog nicer food it will eat it then come home.

I hate cats - strangely because they are needy all that rubbing round your legs, purring and sitting on your knee. If the dog wants attention she will bump my hand with her head - she likes to know where I am but will often lay under the table in another room.

Well I love all animals ESP digs and cats but if you work FT and noone is home then cats are far more Independant.

thebody Tue 30-Apr-13 18:28:07

Love that sparkling.

BlueSkySunnyDay Tue 30-Apr-13 18:28:38

Oh and when the children are being shitty and upset me the dog always comes over to comfort me.

Dogs are needy. Of course they are. They need to be loved as much as they love.

Our dog is currently sleeping on top of DD2's blanket, keeping her company - he's a dog that gives back smile

A dog round here gets left most of the day. It cries. sad Sparkling Cat does not cry if I leave the house.

MardyBra Tue 30-Apr-13 18:44:44

Oh and guinea pigs are a waste of space. wink

Sparklingbrook Tue 30-Apr-13 18:49:37

I thought Guinea Pigs existed purely as a friend for a rabbit. grin

Cats are ace. Dogs are too :-)

SugarPasteGreyhound Tue 30-Apr-13 18:58:27

Like them both, but there is something so lovely about being welcomed home by your dog. Yes cats are more independent but when you have had a shitty day it's very comforting to be greeted by the dogs, who think I am the greatest thing ever and are always thrilled to see me grin

Dogs are brilliant. Guinea pigs are ace. Rabbits are cute. Cats are.... ok ;)

EggsMichelle Tue 30-Apr-13 19:01:25

Guineapigs are amazing, so chatty! My dog can't grasp that he weighs 25kg more than the cat, and that's why the cat can sit on my lap and not the dog. However the dog is more Interactive with my DS

BlueSkySunnyDay Tue 30-Apr-13 19:02:23

oh Mardy Bra - there is no hope, you dont like guinea pigs either they are lovely characters. Now tell me you like rabbits (creepy things)

Obviously dogs shouldnt be left for longer than 4 hours so they are more of a tie but they are worth the effort.

cats if they have a flap have the option of popping round to spend the day with a nice local pensioner.

Dogs are not needy. Bloody guppies are needy, at least when my dog goes to the loo all I need to do is bag and bin it, guppies need you to create and maintain their own living toilet for them and then go and have millions of tiny guppy babies and mess up their living toilet and you have to start cleaning it more.
