Dogs versus Cats
There comes a time in most everyone’s life when he or she decides to get a pet. There are many choices to choose from, like a snake, a bird, or even a rodent. Most people, however, decide on the more common four- legged creature like a dog or a cat. Understanding the differences can help in the process of choosing between them. Important factors in choosing the right pet depends on the following: how much affection you want from a pet, and how much responsibility you want to have.
For unwavering love and loyalty, not to mention protection, a dog is the best choice. Dogs are generally more loyal and affectionate, whereas cats seem to be more reserved and only show affection on their own terms. Dogs do not generally question authority and, after some training, do exactly what they are commanded to do. Cats will also not question authority, but differ in that they do not even listen. A dog will jump onto the bed and find a place to settle down for the night, usually the foot of the bed. Cats will only sleep on the bed if they want to, and will sleep at whichever end they choose. Dogs are more dependent and require a lot of attention. Cats are independent and require very little attention.
A dog would think that since his owner feeds him, loves him, and fulfils his every need; his owner must be a God. A cat, on the other hand, would think since his owner feeds him, loves him, and fulfills for his every need, he must be a God. As long as a dog thinks of you as the pack leader, you can train him to do almost anything. Cats are generally solitary hunters and have no need of belonging to a hierarchy. Although cats rarely respond to their owners, they do show affection by nuzzling or by rubbing your body with their body. The purring sound a cat makes when it is content is one of the few indications of its love. Perhaps to compensate for their reluctant nature, cats grow up quickly and are able to amuse themselves all day while...
