There is no such thing as a better pet – but there are people who are better for certain animals. Just like some people like chocolate or vanilla and heaven help us butterscotch, we all have an attraction to certain things and beings. I am a cat person. I think cats are easy. They don’t need to be taken out multiple times a day – yes, they do poop in a box. But I can be away for more than 8 hours and not slip and slide in the front door on dog pee / poop.

Dogs on the other hand are great for folks who have more time for them. They can go on walks. They beg for your attention (have to be graced with a cat’s company when they aren’t sleeping 20 hours a day) and are eager to please their companions with tricks for treats. Yes, they do need bathes and to be taken out to do their business but if you are active and enjoy the walks and effort you have a good time together.
