    Yeah same lol, if I don't leave water in the bathroom sink for my cat she looks at me as if she's been cheated. Her hobby in life is to drink water in every possible place as long as it's not from the cat water bowl.

    And she's a killer too when she's outside. I have to get rid of dead vermin and birds laying near the sliding glass door on a daily basis.

    The fact that your outdoor cat can (and likely will) have several owners is so off-putting, it beats whatever positives I can think of. Like sure, both cats and dogs are opportunistic creatures by nature, but none of the dogs I owned would have chosen a stranger over us. Not for an hour, and certainly not for several days.

    Sure, some of our German Sheperds were terrifyingly smart & egoistic, to the point that you really couldn't trust them with anything (especially food), but bonding with strangers for their own gain? Zero chance.

    Just dropping this here...cats have a bonding rate with their humans similar to children with their parents, and at rates above what dogs have shown.

    Both are amazing animals.
    Do you hear the voices too?

    Easy pick.

    Although my favorite comparison is:
    -when you give a dog food, water, shelter, love, and affection, it think's you're a god
    -when you give a cat food, water, shelter, love, and affection, it thinks it is a god
    Last I checked, it wasn't cats barking and chasing me on my bike when I was a young kid just trying to go to school. Psychopathic dogs did that, and for a kid who was scared of them, it certainly left an everlasting impression of dogs. So, nah, it's not the cats that are socio/psychopaths. It's dogs all the way.

    dogs with smiley faces and they also have to be at the top end of medium to large in size.

    to paraphrase Ron Swanson - any dog less than 20 kilos is a cat and i hate cats

    Both.

    It's a mortal sin to choose.

    Cats are for lazy people that don’t want the responsibility that comes with owning a dog. Hence why cats are more popular in the gaming community. A dog requires way more attention. A cat shits in a box and is content being left alone.

    I'd prefer a lovely cat over a lovely dog

    However I'd prefer a lovely dog over a shitty cat.

    I feel like cats are very hit and miss friend of mine treats hers very well and still gets a scrap every now and then.

    Cat person. I like dogs, too, but they are too needy, dependant and submissive to my taste. I like a pet that can keep himself occupied and doesn’t need me for everything. If I wanted that, I’d get a kid.

    Both. But if i had to choose i would pick cat for it's independent nature.

    Cats thou That’s mainly due to the amount of effort dogs take to keep them happy/healthy.
    Growing up my parents/siblings decided to adopt two dogs when I was little and it was complete hell for me. I’m the one who had to house break them,feed them,wash them, walk them and clean up any mess they made(trash bags ripped open, barf/shit on the floor, etc) and of course the dogs didn’t care for me since I didn’t spoil them like my siblings.
    Now cats are easy
    feed them, empty the self cleaning litter box once a week and let them cuddle up to you when they feel like it.

    Cats are great.

    This is mine. Unfortunately he passed away literally several days ago, he was 16 years old, pretty old by cat standards for his breed, got some bug and vet clinic could not do much there.

    My condolences

    The cat has some beauty going on (and that cup of espresso as well).

    As for me, both are great and I loved my late English Mastiff that was around for a lot of my childhood. As someone who is living in a small apartment though, I've only got cats as the practical option. The two rescues I have atm are just perfect.
