You know, they aren't mutually exclusive. Dog people can like cats and vice versa. Cats are just different in behavior than dogs are, and viva le differénce!

my cat is cuter.

but I dislike how it manages to get fur in my eyes and mouth and nose.
oh well, that's what happens when they try to sleep on your head.

Don't fall for their furry cuteness and purring and stuff. They're still pure evil. If you want a test, just leave your coat on a chair or on the floor. It won't be more than a couple of hours before it's been scratched up and peed on. Go ahead, I dare ya.

No, his brother is evil! I once tossed my dog Vic a nice piece of cooked chicken, and while Vic sat there waiting for the chicken to land in his mouth Promo (Bobbys brother) jump up and flew through the air between Vic and the piece of chicken, snatched it right out of the air with one paw! landed on the other three! and ran in the basement (using just three legs 'cause he was holding the chicken in the one paw!) to enjoy his victory! I should have named him Ninja! LOL!

Cats all have very different personalities. When my wife and I got married, within a few years we had 6 of them. Two were awesome, the rest somewhere between ok and things to be fed. Now we have four. One of those is of the original 6. Of these four, they range from sometimes lovable to things to be fed. None are what I consider awesome. The one that remains from the original 6 is something to be fed.

What makes a cat awesome to me? It's when they do not realize that there is no difference between them and you.

Big Boy and Bobby are gorgeous! I am definitely a cat person and on occassion cats tolerate me enough to give them treats and general worship. But I would love a dog. I hear dogs are all about constant love. Intriguing.
