Dogs are better than cats. Cats are mean and don’t care about their owners at all. They don’t listen to anything they’re told to do and they could care less about showing their love for you.Dogs are kind and loyal to their owners. They learn to listen and obey. They aren’t disrespectful or cunning and they love to show you the love they have for you.

Cats are better because they are easier to take care of. Cats can be left alone for an extended period of time when left with food and water and a litter box. Dogs need to be taken out to use the bathroom and get proper exercise. Cats don’t require very much exercise. They also poop in a box. Cats are calmer than dogs and sleep often. Cats also are very self sufficient. They can go out and hunt and catch mice for themselves.

Your argument about cats being easier feels like you're arguing about being a bad pet owner. You are saying that people who are lazy should be pet owners. If people don't want to own a pet because they don't want to take care of them, should they own anything at all?

Many people are unprepared to own pets. Some people want to jump right into owning a dog. They usually end up giving it away or throwing it in a shelter because they’re not ready. A cat would be better for someone who has a busy life and doesn’t want to live alone. A cat is also better for a first pet to teach kids responsibility. Dogs might be too intimidating for young children.

I believe that cats are better then cats. I believe this because cats generally take care of themselves. If you let them outside, they will hunt for themselves. Cats are also smaller then most dogs so they take up less space. Cats are not attention hogs they sometimes want their own space. That being said they sometime want a lot of love and attention from their owners. Each cat is different and wants different things.

Wouldn’t the same go for dogs? If every cat is different and has different desires, dogs also are not all the same. Dogs can also hunt for themselves if left outside. And if space is a concern, the simple solution would be to get a small dog.

So if you want to be a lazy owner get a cat? Why have a pet If you don't want its attention. When they decide to get someone's attention it's in the wrong way which leads to messy, gross, or destructive behaviors

Cats are better than dogs because they don’t need the affection dogs need. You could leave a cat for a week and it wouldn’t care. Cats are way more independent than dogs, therefor making them better. Cats can hunt there own food and provide for themselves, unlike dogs which need to be taken care of all the time. Cats go to the bathroom whenever they want, but they do it in a litter box. Dogs have to be taken out otherwise they will go to the bathroom on the floor.

You are being very rude think about the tall people. Right now you’re not thinking about the feelings of larger people. If you’re truly mean this then how many short people have discriminated against people of height?

Dogs are better because of many things. They are kinder, more Loyal, and they are more useful to humans. They are kinder because dogs are used for therapy and they help humans with stress. They are also more loyal because they are many instances where dogs will wait for their owners for months. Cats on the other hand usually don’t even come when they are called. Dogs are better service animals as well. They can be trained to help people that are blind and diabetic. They also can help with the police and other public service agencies.

Dogs are more active pets than cats. There are a lot more things to do with a dog than a cat, such as walking it and playing fetch. Cats are less friendly and social, and a lot of cats prefer to roam around more than staying in a house. Also, dogs have practical uses like being service animals.

Dogs are way better than cats. Cats always make messes everywhere. They leave fur on furniture, clothes and anything else possible. Dogs are a lot more intelligent, loyal and fun to be around. Dogs are way more useful as well, examples include hunting, farming and sports.

Hunting... cats are excellent mousers and can be used for common household issues like having mice in your attic. So, which would be more useful? A dog that can hunt a duck, which will never find its way into your house or a cat that can hunt mice, which almost every house has.

Dogs are better than cats because of their disposition. Dogs are much more friendly than cats. Dogs love to be around people. They are much more social animals. Cats are very apathetic and even avoid people. Dogs have personalities that are much kinder. Dogs love to please people and they lift people’s moods by doing so.

There are new studies that say that cats are more loyal than dogs, but because of their intelligence show it differently. Is pleasing people the sign of superiority, or do we hold animals to a different standard than others?

Dog are better then cats because they are easily trained. They can be taught how to sit and fetch. Some dogs can even retrieve animals during hunting. Dogs are better because they are more loyal. They are an emotional support animal.

Hospitals have brought in dogs to comfort ill patients. This is why dogs are better then cats.

Dogs are better than cats. Dogs have a way better connection with humans than a cat does. Dogs are able to listen to people and do as they say. They are able to listen and play fetch. Most cats will not play fetch. Dogs will also retrieve things like ducks for hunting when you tell them to, cats usually will not. They listen and come when their name is called by their owner which shows a true connection.

Dogs are better because they are more human-like. Dogs are able to be trained to do amazing things. Some dogs even save lives. Dogs also are able to form bonds with humans. They are able to sense emotions, and even feel emotions themselves. For example, if you are crying, some dogs will actually comfort you and whine with you. They are able to sense that you are not yourself and can comfort you in a human-like way. Cats cannot do this, and typically don’t even know the difference between their owners and a stranger.

Dogs are better than cats. They are smarter than cats are. They listen to commands unlike cats. Cats are only good for like petting and mice catching. While dogs can do things like Guard humans, retrieve items, herd other animals, warn humans about danger. Dogs are also normally tougher when it comes to fighting other animals. Cats are just good pets and are not good for anything other than like mice catching.
