Poll Added.

I've dated cat people. I've dated dog people. I married a dog woman, and I'm better for it.

Bow Wow!

I've had dogs, and I've had cats. Cats are better company, and they keep your neck warm in the winter. Oh, and they don't drool, stink, leave piles all over the yard or bark for no apparent reason.

Cats harbor a virus that turns you into their zombie slave.....

http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/szb/21/2/167/

Hypothesizes that some cases of schizophrenia may be caused by viral zoonosis transmitted primarily from house cats. Epidemiological aspects of schizophrenia and a case-control questionnaire of 165 parents whose child had been diagnosed as being seriously mentally ill, mostly with schizophrenia, support this hypothesis. Additional efforts should be directed at characterizing the agents involved in disease transmission and in developing methods for reducing or eliminating the environmental risk.

There are approximately 86.4 million owned cats in the United States.

http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/...tatistics.html

"165 parents whose child had been diagnosed as being seriously mentally ill, mostly with schizophrenia"

Even if there is a connection, the number is minuscule compared to the number of housecats. I'm not even going to bother doing the math its so small.

Someone got their PhD for that study. Unfortunate.

Cats go out themselves & shit in the neighbours garden.

You have to walk the dog & wrap it's poo in a bag.
Think of wolves & cry.

You could argue the added services make dog people better.

Cat people are smarter & they have cooler pets.

My cat had the dogs (Huskies) at her former home scared of her. Three large Huskies ran from a 6lb cat.

Our German Shepard was terrified of our cat from her first day here. She would trap him in a corner until he peed all over himself.

Cat rule, dogs drool.

I have both. Plus a goat, chickens, ducks and wild bunns.

The best people are flexible and enjoy many different critters.

I love animals, I just had to be catty for a moment. I've even had pet rats, they are so sweet and lovable.

There are a zillion street cats and dogs here. Cats in thrash cans are cool! Cause they manage to stay clean.
