    I grew up with cats and had one that slept on my bed. I'm a Leo after all.There came a time in my life I started to like dogs. Someone had given a stray to me and this new pooch became a good friend. From then on I started to not like cats so much. There is a saying that dogs have owners but cats need staff. I like dogs.:)
    Check out this video of a cat's staff.

    I love both! I thought a cat would be better for me due to the fact that I live in an apartment, but my mom hates them. Still, when I finally manage to move out...I think I'd like to get a Siamese Cat as well, since they seem so friendly. I'm just hoping my extremely playful Samoyed, Milla, would want to raise her new friend with a lot of doggie affection!

    I just think that dogs and cats being friends is the most adorable thing ever.

    I was first exposed with cats because Grandma had pet cats. But when I got clawed by a cat, that’s when I lose my affection with them. But I used to think they’re sweet especially when they would curl their soft paws into my fingers (the newborn kittens and they’re really cute) and the cats would wrap around my legs. Just be careful not to step on them because being clawed really hurts. Even dogs cry and run from it.

    I'm not a big fan of cats. It's not that I don't like them. I haven't been around them very much. One of my sisters is allergic, so we never had a cat growing up. We had dogs and almost every other animal allowable by law.

    My middle sister has a cat that is mean. She was really friendly as a kitten. By the time she was two, she would not tolerate people at all. She barely tolerates my sister. I've learned to not approach her or risk getting clawed.

    I guess I need to be around cats more. Maybe find some nice ones to visit with.

    We also have a cat pet. We adopted him almost two years ago and I think he was more than a year old that time. I could say that we also like cat a lot and I had learned a lot about cats because of him. ;)

    I like cats, but not as much as I love dogs. Dogs are just so loyal while cats can be sneaky sometimes. I own both a cat and a dog. I have been going back and forth with my roommate whether we should sell the cat or not because the expenses are starting to get too high.

    I don't like cats for many reasons. For one, my family is allergic to cats, and for another because of irresponsible cat owners who have cats but don't take care of them, allowing to roam the street and fend for themselves. Cats are also hard to train not to jump on counter top or dishes that left around. I have problem with cleanliness, so cats won't work for me even if I don't have allergy.

    I am more a dog person but I do love all animals. I like cats and their ability to be free and independent. In my household we have 7 cats. They are my uncle's pets but we still feed them and enjoy their company. I prefer loyalty of a dog and sometimes I have to admit I am pissed off when those cats ruin my lawn. It seems they do it just to make some damage :).

    I do not think of myself as just a dog or as just a cat person. I love both and have had both before. Although, my first pet was a rat which is a good pet to start with. I had two cats for years and loved both of them very much. They would both sleep with me and it was nice. I have two dogs now and I love both of them as well. I think that cats are a lot easier to take care of though since they do not have to be taken out to do their business and for walks, but you cannot compare the love of a dog though.

    I also got acquainted with cats at quite an early age. They are a common feature in kitchens. Cats tend to be somewhat ignored because of their self effacing nature. They are also independent and retain most of their pre-domestication instincts. But they are lovely creatures and get all the attention when their milk holder runs dry or there are rats racing around in the house and the ceilings. Though they are not engaged like dogs, we don't forget them.

    I'm definitely a dog person, needless to say. I don't really like or dislike cats. Although I won't deny that some cats can be very adorable. *Garfield* lol.

    I like that saying! Dogs have masters which they really adore, while cats have this "I don't care" or swag attitude. Nevertheless, they have their own advantages and disadvantages being pets, and it all comes down to personal preference, in my opinion.

    I am not against cats. In fact, I pity the cat when it is chased by a dog. However, our dogs hate cats especially Barbie who wouldn't stop barking upon the sight or sound of a cat. That is why when there is a cat in our vicinity, we spray it with the hose so they would go away. We don't allow our dogs to chase cats though because that is unhealthy. Besides, pity the poor cat.

    This reminds me of our first dog named Jedi. She was a very ferocious dog, a mix of mongrel. She had killed countless of mice and rats. She also chased so many cats.

    I have a cat and she's nice to have around, but I really miss having a dog. I am a dog person and they seem to know it. They gravitate to me and I to them whether it is a friend's dog or even dogs I meet walking in the park.

    I love cats and I've always dreamed of owning one. They're such graceful, beautiful creatures. Taking care of a little kitten must be wonderful.
    However, my Homer hates cats more than anything and he would be very unhappy if I adopted one. I just can't do this to him.

    I have a dog and a cat. My dog comes first. But I love my cat too. My dog is half the size of my cat, but still, she bosses him around. My cat wants to play with my dog so bad, but she is having nothing of it. I love to catch them in a moment when they are being friends. My cat was having a hard time learning to use the pet door. One day I sat there and watched them, while my dog taught him how to do it. She used repitition and commands, by barking to get his attention and then showing him how to put his nose in the bottom corner and push through, over and over. And he mastered it that very day!

    I love them both. Am planning to get one very soon and am currently researching on the best one for me.

    I'm dog person through and through and I'm not very fond of cats. Kittens are adorable but when they're fully grown cats, for some reason i find them completely creepy and i guess aggressive? My exposure to cats was very little though so my opinion might be a bit off the mark, feel free to correct me. :p

    I love cats. Our dog loves cats. Our cat tolerates us, and tolerates the dog. LOL It all works out in the end.
