you have two kind of people, people who love cats and people who love dogs.
a small correction.
you have four kind of people. people who love cats, people who love dogs, people who hate both species and there are people like me.
I love cats and dogs.
I grew up with cat’s but was always asking for a dog but the answer was always no. mum and dad where not just being mean no they had good reasons to deny me the pleasure of owning a dog. (I can see that now). a dog needs attention and taking care, it has to be taking out for walks no matter what the weather it is and a dog can’t stay alone at home for to long. the promise that I would take good care of it was directed to deaf man’s ears and that was probably a good thing.
we had (the once I have memory of anyway) with the one we have now had 3 cats in total and always one at the time. and all have been (or still is) very sweet and good company.
Cats and dogs have, beside being both pets from people, nothing in common. they are truly two completely diffrent kind of animals.
could you do me a favour and accept for me that from now on till the end of this post cat’s and dogs are as intelligent as humans and more importantly can speak as we do. in reason that I ask this is because to make clear where in my view the differences lay between cats and dogs, I will have a conversation with both of them.
the situation is as the following: I come home, had a bad day because I just broke up with my boyfriend and suspect that this could really be the end of the on-off relationship that has been going on for a couple years. but no worries because at home there is my best friend to make me feel better
the dog (Duska)
me: hello, I am home.
Duska: he there, wonderful to see you again, I missed you, had a nice day?
me: no, I broke of with Peter.think maybe this time it isn’t going to work out any more.
Duska: oh, you poor thing,come sit here, you are going to be just fine.
and what follows is some hugging and petting. it does make me feel a lot better :).
the Cat (Manau)
me: hello, I am home.
Manau: hi there, are you al right, I don’t want to be rude but you look like shit.
me: I feel like shit, just broken off with peter…
Manau: again ??
me: yes, think I might be for good this time.
Manau: good, he is no good for you.
me: I love him so…
manau: and he loves you, just as much as the next women what walks by.
Manau: come, I’ll sit with you for a wile, you will just be fine.
and that is the difference between cat’s and dogs. dogs are unconditional loyal and always will try to cheer you up. cat’s are also always on your side but are not afraid to speak his mind.
what is the best? that depends I think on what kind of person you are.
