Cat Person or Dog Person?

  1. Just wondering which types of pets you all prefer. I, myself, am a cat person. This is mainly because cats require so little maintenance and also because, for the most part, I grew up with cats. You?

    While I love dogs, I know I don't have the time to give them that they need and would feel guilty.

    And I do love kitties !!! Yes, I'd say I'm a cat person, for much of the same reasons you described.

    I love both!!!

    I have a great dane, a german shepherd, 3 cats and some tadpoles/frogs (my son's). I'd love to have more if I had the room.

    I am a total cat person...but my husband is a dog person (an only child that grew up with his mom raising dogs as his brothers and sisters)...Right now we only have a cat, but when his mom breeds her dogs, we get a puppy too! what a new experience!

    Cat person here! ^..^

    I love dogs, too, but we haven't found a way to fit one into our lifestyle. Maybe when all the kids are out on their own and it's just Bill and me, we'll get a little dog to take on the road with us (we're gonna be one of those baby-boomer RV couples someday). By then, we'll probably be down to one or two cats.....as long as we don't keep adopting kittens every time we lose one! :chuckle

    I love both, have three dogs and two cats. But I have fallen madly in love with the two Yorkies that I have and from here out will only get a Yorkie. Not sure if it is the breeder that I get them from, but these are the most amazing little guys. And not just my two, but I have also taken two over to the US for friends and they think the same way.............

    Dog person here!
    We have 2 Great Danes, Riley (a Mantle) who is 17 months and weighs in at 125 pounds and Katie, who we recently got as a rescue. She's a 3 y/o spayed Harlequin female and weighs in at 95(?). Dr appt Tuesday...we're working on getting the weight on her!
    And we have Timothy, a Cocker Spaniel and Baby, a miniature beagle.
    and Tiger, the oldest member of the family (cat) and Samson, an African Grey parrot.
    OH! And 2 chickens and 1 rooster, who my hubby says are his pets.....

    But me? Yea, I'm the dog person....

    I love cats, always have. My mom would get so mad at me when I was little cause I'd bring home strays all the time. I have one orange male now that i got for Christmas last year. He is funny and likes to cuddle.

    Hiya Gator.....My favorite cats are orange toms. I've always had one of those in my family. They just seem to have a wonderful disposition. My orange guy is named Harry (after my Dad) and he's a goof. The one before Harry was Woody who was polydactal and a stray and we took him in. He lived the good life for awhile but we had to have him put down r/t kidney disease. I was devastated. He was a real big boy but a gentle giant. Prior to Woody I had Morris...for lack of a better name at the time. Just love these guys!

    MMMRRRROOOWWW. PURRRRR. That's me! LOVE LOVE LOVE cats! I have 2. I just wish they loved me more. I play with them, and would love to just hold and snuggle with them, but you know cats. They take a message and get back to you when they want! Especially on cold nights. :chuckle
