I don't mind if people wish to own them, but as soon as they stray from their enclosures they are nothing but vermin.

And why is it that some own more than 1 or even 2 cats? There are apparently cat ladies that own 3 or more cats. Cats are cute I get it (I don't actually) but you don't need 5 of them.

Cats are extremely territorial. One of my friend's cat wouldn't let another friend's kid sleep in the same bed. When the kid did it actually threw hissy fits and then bit him.

And then just last month, my other friend's cat Pinky killed their hamster and not only that, the cat ate half of it and left the other half on the kitchen floor for us to see it. As if what a proud moment that was. I am still traumatized by it. I loved the hamster. It looked so innocent.

I own two Yorkshire Terrier dogs, but don’t have anything against cats, though I prefer dogs.
Where should I stand in this impolite profiling attempt?

You come home and you find out your neighbour’s house is on fire. Your neighbour’s baby and your dearest cat are both trapped inside the house and you can only save one.

Which one would you choose to save?

I am just doing a research. Just because you like cats doesn’t mean you’re a bad person. Hardly - though, I’d say if a specific group of people are more drawn to cats (or dogs for that matter), then perhaps it would reveal more about those people. Not in a bad sense but as to what really attracts them or what does it say about them etc.

I don’t own any dogs or cats at the moment.

You must have a stupid friend. Also blaming a cat for being cat? Lol to that!
Cats were good at killing mice and rats and that's the reason people wanted cats in the first place. Even the domestic cats grown in a house between walls are very good hunters. They enjoy hunting and killing. That's their nature.

I’d say lazy people prefer cats as they are less work.
Dog owners were indeed found to be more energetic than cat owners in a study done by Carroll University (Wisconsin) 5 years ago; the same study found the cat owners to be more intelligent.

Puppers >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Cats



Imagine if this cutie came across a cucumber... it would bite it's head off and enjoy it's suculance (is that a word? no? ok fine i have invented a word).

Meanwhile this is what cats do.



Look at the fear in it's eyes. Terrified at it's glorious greenness.

I once had a friend, Rusty Shackleford who once wrote "I love dogs, especially cats".

This thread reminds me of what Ollinger once said about old people who died with a cat in their house. :( :eek:

Long back I used to love LOLCATS. I once poasted only LOLCATS for a few days, and iirc the admin deleted 200 of them in one shot. I was trying to get from 19999 to 20001 posts, and threads and posts kept getting deleted. I'd go to bed as a TW Guru and wake up the next morming as a mere GOAT (with a hundred posts less).

Zara, it is likely that there is as much difference in intelligence and personality in cats and dogs as in humans. I sort of half married into a cat family. My wife had a Siamese, a tiny female, that that cat lived to age 21. She would go from room to room to be with anyone who was sick. She went totally blind and we did not know it until a vet told us, because she was so proud and intelligent that she continued to get around our place by feel and smell. Never missed the cat box, still slept next to my wife's pillow.

I had a big black cat named Monster who loved people, and I lost count of how many people said, "I don't like cats, but I like THIS one." He loved food and would try anything. He would cuddle up with anyone and came to my whistle.

Then I had a cat many years ago that I brought in because of a hurricane. He never left and he slept by my side as long as he lived. If I played the the piano too long, he left a turd under the bench.

Remember, there are genius animals.


I think this dog was smarter than some of the people I've tried to teach. I'm not fully kidding.

I own two rescued street cats.
And yet, i absolutely hate them. i hate the cat hairs all over the entire universe (can't wear black anymore), I hate the noises they make, I hate the way they stumble around like drunks and bump into you, i the way they're awake at the crack of dawn, the way they always try to get into every room in the house, everything.
