I was instructed to take a stance on an issue that I passionate about. Also, I am supposed to convince you to care as well. Luckily, I’m choosing a very serious topic. Dogs make better pets than cats. Now, granted that I’ve never had either as a pet, you might be a little skeptic of my authority on this matter. But I’ll have you know that I have spent enough time around both of these creatures come up with a reasonable conjecture. In other words, I’m right.
Dog’s aren’t called man’s best friend for nothing. Since their domestication, They have been quite useful. From shepherding and hunting to police work and security, dogs have always been there for us. Dogs can be trained to do almost anything.
There are many perks to owning a dog. They make us laugh and smile. They literally save lives. They force us to exercise because of their need to be walked. They even help us befriend random people who want to pet them.
Cats on the other hand, aren’t half as productive. Cats embody some of the most undesirable human qualities. They are lazy and viciously anti-social. They sit around all day. They sleep, eat, defecate, and maybe meow for a while. If they are feeling especially productive they’ll come and snuggle with you. And don’t get me started on their social habits. When visiting a friend who has a cat, you may spend hours without as much as glimpse of the cat. In the rare occasions when you see the cat, petting it will be a challenge. It will avoid you at all costs. Some of the costs may include biting you. I have seen this happen to several people who are self-proclaimed “cat people”.
Dogs on the other hand possess many culturally acclaimed traits. First of all, they are quite friendly. You can never visit a friend who as a dog without being thoroughly welcomed by the dog. Dogs are also viciously loyal. Their love is unconditional. How many stories are there of Dog’s going to their owners graves or risking their lives for their owners? Now how many stories are there of cats doing the same? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
If you like cat’s better, that’s okay. You don’t need to send me hateful messages or write something nasty in the comment section. Just know that Dogs are awesome. They are playful, loyal, and obedient. Whether or not you want to admit it or not, they are better pets than cats.
Dogs come when they’re called. Cats take a message and get back to you later.
