Both
Currently 4 indoor cats+ the neighbor's cat comes by 3 times a day for takeout. Yeah when I get up-5 am- 30 seconds after the kitchen light goes on he appears at the window-gives me maybe 30 seconds to produce food for him
Current dog-Arty-retread greyhound-sweet goofy dog
Our first greyhounds were Phoebe and Isis -hence the handle phoebeisis-sweet dogs make GREAT pets-great apartment or small house pets
Greyhounds LOOK like athletes-look like they would be dogs that require LOTS of exercise-THEY DON'T.
Heck they are couch potatoes-they like walks but really aren't big on un-necessary exercise
They "live small" for such leggy dogs-great car travelers also-curl up sleep-period
No odor to speak of-rarely bark- arrive housebroken-never bite the neighbor's kid-very healthy-none of the typical "hip problems" of many taller breeds
And they are prettier than the neighbors dog-
Yeah you really couldn't find a better small house or apartment dog.
About 1/2 of them are cat safe.

Enough of hell

Got 4 cats and 5 dogs, 3 indoor Persians, what a joke. One outdoor barn cat, when I put my thumbs between it's shoulder blades I can't touch my finger tips together on it's chest, and he's semi feral, huge

2 English mastiff to keep the coyotes away (also 6 miniature Sicilian donkeys and 2 llamas, relentless guardians) 2 brown neufies and an aussie Shepard pup, the outdoor cat is just as companionable as any of the dogs, can hold the dogs at bay and eats all the mice and birds that it can reach, lament the last cow, it was blind but what a buddy, cow's are great, and tasty.

Look at a cat skeleton and make a decision about having one of them in the same room at night, I don't

I have had both and like both but my preference is cats. I have been lucky enough to have had a number of really cool, sweet, friendly cats... great companions and cuddle buddies. But I've had one not so cool cat so I understand why people dislike cats so.

Dogs by and large are friendlier due to their pack mentality but they also can have so annoying quirks and if not properly trained can be really anoxious (really what's worse - an aloof cat or a barky, yippy, jumpy poodle?). I often say dogs are like "guys" - very needy, requires lots of attention and cats are like "women" - they enjoy the company of others but can live very well on their own too. I like the fact cats are more like me, independent and capable but enjoys good company and companionship.

Another plus, cats turds are generally smaller and easier to remove than dogs... especially if the cat is litter trained.

And please if you have to have a dog (I have had a german sheppard, a collie and a rough coat lab)... get a dog, not some over grown rat thing - my sister likes chihuahuas... I have developed a real distaste for those creepy little things...

I am right there with you.... my sister at one time had 3 yappy nippy whining little rats that I could have easily tossed off the baloney... but I maintained control... I am proud of myself for that!

We have two cats and a dog. Cats are devils.

This is OT but we have flying squirrels living in the oak tree in our backyard. They come out at night to feed. Dang things are skittish as heck.

I have a very affectionate calico cat named Daisy we adopted from my mom. Daisy came to stay with us last February when my mom was recovering from a broken hip and it turned out Daisy likes us much more than my mom. My mom got over it quickly because a few weeks ago adopted another calico from a pet rescue. Daisy is ridiculously sociable and loves meeting new people. One of her favourites is the pizza delivery man because, well, she gets pizza cheese.

I've had cats off and on since I was a kid and have never had a dog. I'd love a dog one day and I'm pretty sure Daisy would even like (or put up with) a dog in the house. She got along with my mom's other cat Freddie the House Panther who is the least tame cat I've ever met. He's crazy. His greeting is a bite and if you try and move him off your lap, you get another bite.

My brother's cat was really nasty. The only one she liked was my brother. She would hiss at everyone else even for just walking by. Be foolish enough to try and pet her and she'd bite. Horrible cat.

Dogs. We had a German Shepard which I would rate more intelligent that a third of the human population. Great company hiking, running, x-country skiing. I would be gone for months at a time and never worried about my family because no unwanted person could enter the house. Current dog is a west highland terrier. Not the brightest bulb in the chandelier but very social. We have a fuzzy paperweight that purrs and meows on occasion, I am pretty sure it's a cat.

Was this cat de-clawed by any chance? A cats first line of defense is running away/hiding. The next in line is their claws. The last is biting. Holding and biting is in there, too. Running by and swinging/clawing, and also hiding, then ambushing are also parts of their arsenal. Without the claws, it's all biting!

I don't remember but if so it may have been from her previous owner. I don't recall my brother having it done. She was nasty from the start though. I does makes sense, although from my own experience my current cat had been declawed by her previous owner and she is very friendly.

Anything that eats acorns is more than welcome to live there. If I could have a pet pig I would get one.

I used to have a cat that liked the little dogs. They made such great cat toys.
