Cats good. Dogs ungood. It’s the universal truth.
I’m definitely a cat person. If you chuck a stick, a dog’ll chase after it and bring it back. A cat will just look up at you and go “well, you threw it, so fetch it yourself if you want it so badly”. Dangle a bit of string from the end of the stick though and it’s a different story. Half an hour of entertainment, easily.
Cats also don’t take any shit from you. If they don’t like something you do, you get a clip round the ear. Thus you know exactly where you stand with a cat — even the females, which is quite refreshing. The married of you will know what I mean :-)
I think DeNiro summed it all up best in Meet The Parents:
they don’t sell out the way dogs do
