After years of observation, I still don't know why it is that men prefer dogs, and women prefer cats.
Ok, Mudcat pedants, go.

My dad likes cats. My mom likes dogs. I like both but lean toward cats because they seem to be less work. Cats like me better than dogs do, anyway. Rodents like me OK. Birds hate my guts but the feeling is mutual so it's all good.

!. It's not fair to the dog if you have to be away all day.
2. Cats are a lot less work than dogs.
3. Relating to cats is more interesting and harder than relating to       dogs. With a dog, you always play the same role: boss. With cats,      it varies.

I've always been a dog person even though I have had the occasional cat.

For the first time, however, I'm learning that a cat is a lot of fun. I have both a dog and a cat and I'm enjoying them both but the cat continually surprises me. He is affectionate, curious, wise and smart - he knows 'stay', 'no', 'come', 'no, you can't come', and a host of other simple commands. His demeanor changes appropriately as he processes various commands, and he complains loudly when I tell him he has to get down from wherever he is. He's just a lot of fun.

He is a handsome cat: coal black with 14 white hairs on his chest, tall and slim and his name is 'archy', as in archy and mehitabel.

How do you turn a Cat into a Dog?
Soak it in petrol and through on a match.

I like both - used to be more of a cat person until I 'adopted' Seamus, who used to be Kendall's dog.

In my experience cats and dogs all have individual personalities, some you like, others you don't.

My husband likes cats, dislikes dogs. One reason is that he has a keen sense of smell, and to him all dogs and their houses are stinky.

I think you can like both.

There are so many different breeds of dog, there should be one for most folks.

Cats are pretty independant. As long as they have enough to eat and drink, a place to scratch and their time outdoors they're happy.

I am not, for god's sake, a pedant...a locket at best. But I have lived a long time, with a lot of dogs and cats, and have known lots of dog people, cat people and both people (and more than few any of the above are better than people people). And as far as I can see, gender has nothing to do with it.

I like cats cos they're subtle.

1) When the dog wants to come in it flings itself against the door yapping and scratching. When the cat wants to come in it sits on the window sill and just looks, until you are hypnotised into opening the door - even if you had your back to the window it works.

2) When they mate - dogs, in the High Street, tongue hanging out, in front of everybody. Cats, in the garden, middle of the night - " Aaaawww gooooo ooooon, pleeeeeeeeease." "Oooooooooohhhhhh aaaaaaawwwllllriiiight theeeeeeen"

3) When cats get clattered by a car, like mine did the other week, they just get squashed and go to the great cattery in the sky, not denting the car, being helpless and costing a fortune in vets bills before costing even more for a proper doggy cremation.

This outfit is not typical of the general population. It has been my own experience that men prefer dogs, and women prefer cats. Of course there are exceptions, but let's discuss the general rule here.
I believe that men, in general,dislike cats because you can't order them around. No matter what you do to a dog, it will forgive and grovel at your feet. Cats, grovel? no way.

I prefer dogs, but I have been owned by a cat, and when it got creamed by a car and I had to bury it, I felt bad, and I continue to miss him after 20 years. I was attached to him because he was a pugnacious little bastard with a great sense of humor. Come to think of it, many of my human friends are like that.

I know I'm more of a cat person because I've found I can learn to get along OK with virtually any cat, but I'm extremely picky about what kind of dog I'd want to live with. The smell thing is big factor. I can control litterbox odor easily enough (thank you, scoopables!) but bathing a greasy 90-pound Lab all the time is more than I want to deal with. I don't mind hair. (I own medium-sized spitz breeds--hair everywhere but no rancid skin oil.)

My brother loves cats but is dying for a dog, but once again, he doesn't want a big, sloppy, "doggie" dog. We don't do toy breeds, either. Too fragile. I had a friend in college whose 18-pound brown tabby slaughtered her roommate's 6-pound obnoxious Chihuahua.

My Lab tends to "pong" sometimes, and when he does I take him to the groomer. Bath and toe nail clip is $30.00. His heartworm meds cost more than that.

I read a long time ago that people who like cats are willing to accept another's independence but people who like dogs want unquestioned obedience (basically what Kendall said)--but the magazine said dog-lovers had fascist tendencies-- that might possibly be a bit strong.

Favorite cartoon on the subject: cat talking to dog: "Cats don't need 'Obedience School'--people obey us just fine."

We have 3 black cats--each unique--it's great.

"but the magazine said dog-lovers had fascist tendencies-- "

Dang hoppity (what the heck does that mean..oh well) Ron, what magazine was that! Good grief...I need to look closely at my endless list of character defects now and examine if this theory has any relevance to my love of all Pups.

hang on a second..... Sit down right this minute Barney my faithful Maine Shelta Hound, NO! Right here I say! Now STAY! ... as I was saying I will examine whether that theory has any truth to it with regards to myself.

I don't buy the Dogs are from Mars, Cats are from Venus theory..**BG** although I like it...I do agree with Kendall. The Cats in this House own me! My Dog well we just have an understanding, he seems to want me to tell him what he needs to do and then he tells me what he wants me to do.
I wouldn't waste my time trying to tell the Kits to do anything...as I know am only here on their whim:).

Mack says: With a dog, you always play the same role: boss. With cats, it varies.

The only variation is that sometimes a cat wants something, and demands that you obey. At other times, the cat doesn't particularly care if you exist and allows you to do other things that don't concern the cat. Sometimes things you do to the cat aren't of any particular interest to the cat, so it looks as though the cat is "permitting you" to act on your own; but in truth it's permitted only because the cat doesn't particularly care.

Well I am a woman who owns two cats and two dogs. The cats run the house, the dogs ruin the yard.

The cats enjoy having us around the place and take turns visiting people on their beds at night. They live inside because we're too close to a busy street and there are foxes and coyotes who live around here. Life outside is tough for cats.

The dogs are big enough to live outside and do so beause dogs are outside animals and they have a good fence (and Invisible Fence now, to keep them inside the fence). They have a dog house called "The Garage" in which they have a very nice large pen with hay for sleeping in. They are always extremely glad to see me and are generally better companions than the cats are. They're also getting pretty darned good at going for walks as we all learn who has to be in charge. The last time we met dogs off leash it was three from the corner house where the neighbors' fence had blown down that afternoon. My two just wagged and were quiet when we met on the street.
