Dogs. Even the best cats don't understand the vocal fluctuations in human language the way that dogs do. Why have an animal that dirties all your shit and tries to own your house but you can't communicate with? If I wanted a cat I would get a fish instead that looks neat and minds its own fucking business.
>>702927626 Every cat owned by any of my friends has been like an asshole roommate who shows up and maybe does something funny, expects food but ultimately doesnt care about you beyond that. People search for meaning where there is none. Cats dont give very much of a shit about people. Also you have a box full of sand and shit in your house. That shit stinks. Objectively.
>>702928522 >spit up hair not if you give your cat the right supplements >shits in a box in your house no, my cat just goes outside whenever he feels like taking a shit >dogs are gross yes, the fucking smell (every last one of them), they slime and eat shit.
also, I don't want to fucking take the dog for a walk every fucking day.
Every dog owned by any of my friends has been like a permanent toddler whoe shows up, maybe does something funny, expects food, and needs attention all the time or they start making messes, shitting all over and destroying things.
I like cats because they manage themselves. I'll grab a cat and pet it a while if I want. The can will jump up on me if it needs attention. Both of us do our own thing and can safely ignore the other.
Litter does stink like fuck. You've got me on that one.
> thinking of buying one of those automatic boxes, but not sure how well they really work.
>>702929406 Do you know literally nothing about the animal you own? Probably not, you're probably 12 and your parents take care of your cat. Cats lick themselves which causes hair to get in their stomach which doesnt digest so they spit it back up. And you let your cat outside? Youre brave, i wouldnt be suprised if a strong gust of wind coukd take out those pathetic creatures. My dog washes herself in our pond, apparently you live in the city because you mentioned walking a dog. No wonder you like cats, city people are ignorent losers who think theyre importent because they ridd their faggot bikes to starbucks everyday pay $10 for fucking coffee Honestly just fucking kill yourself.
>>702929951 "Dont sterotype urban people" >sterotypes rural Cat people really are that fucking stupid like the worthless animal theh prefer. I hope your overweight ass trips over your piss bottles and youd cat eats you alive because youre too heavy to roll over you fucking turtle
>>702930567 1: im living downtown 2: if you let your dog just wander around, he could eat some shit that would cause his stupid ass to choke or get poisoned 3: in my country, free roaming dogs get collected, because it's not allowed to let them walk alone in public space (and rightfully so)
>>702928760 Dogs are loyal. They are subservient They are submissive. They can be cucked and told what to do People who like dogs like having control over something. Because they have little control in their own lives.
Cats can also be loyal. Cats can come to you if you call them, but the difference is this:
Cats are not afraid of you. They are not submissive. They are independent. They don't give a fuck about who you think they are. If you give a cat love and respect it will act like a dog, in the sense of companionship. But they will meet bend to your will. They will not do what you say because you want them to. People who own cats understand that life is chaotic, and they have no control over anything but themselves and how they can react to it.
Tl;dr I like both animals, but dog people who hate cats are just insecure. Let's be honest. Faggots.
>>702929951 My family has owned 4 cats for about 10 years, and fostered nearly 100 kittens over the years, and we've never gotten a single hairball. Our one cat we let outside doesn't have front claws, and has killed many mice, rabbits, and birds and brought them to us. You clearly don't know anything about cats, you just dislike them and then built your "facts" around that
>>702932898 I don't have a cat or dog, but there's plenty of pretty fucking normal (boringly so) people with cats. It is true that most single cat owners are more introverted (which increases the likelyhood of them being considered " awkward"), but scientific studies have confirmed that cat people and introverted people are more intelligent in general compared to extroverted people. (aka emptyheaded people with shallow interests)
Dogs are tricked into loving you via hijacked pack instincts; they have been selectively bred into being obedient, happy servants for ten thousand years. A dog is not "man's best friend", its "man's happiest slave".
On the other hand, cats are the only species to have 'domesticated' themselves. Their ancestors voluntarily started hunting the vermin which infested grain silos, which was mutually beneficial for humans and cats. Over the millennia the two species became friends on relatively equal terms, which is why you have to build relationships with cats much in the same way you do with humans. Dog people don't understand this, and think they're "solitary" animals just because they don't immediately worship the ground you walk on when you first meet them.
>>702932152 >will not bend to your will complete bullshit. >>702935078 don't act like you know what you're talking about.
the reason we get along with dogs more easily and have an easier time training them is because we, as humans, share pack mentality. We can treat a dog the same way we treat a child and the dog will come around as aneeded adjusted companion. Cats can also be trained, just as easily mind you, but not in the same manner because they do not share pack mentality like dogs do. People assume cats are these independent or "respect them and they'll respect you" when in reality it's just a different approach at training them to create something with the end result as a dog.
My gf has cats, I was around them when they were kittens and trained them. They barely listen to her, but come to me, sit, like their stomache rubbed, etc, just like a dog.
cats are the single most destructive pest species on earth, causing billions worth of damage, made 33+ species extinct (and 25+ are threatened), aquatic mammals are dying due to the toxoplasmosis (a brain parasite) they're the only host of, much like half of the human population, but rather than dying it's linked to schizophrenia in us hence 'crazy cat ladies'
cats are objectively worse than canetoads and any individual species of rat combined, they are far more cancer than the 'pests' they might kill.
'pests' because most rodents they kill are native, removing them actively harms the environment.
only cucks infested with brain parasites like cats.
>>702936344 cat owners are faggots by default. >>702936467 >native rodents within a dwelling cause disease moron only if you're too retarded to store food properly, rodents aren't an issue if there's no food available. >having cats inside is completely fine most cats are outdoor cats. >>702936516 toxoplasmosis needs a cat to complete it's lifecycle.
>>702936124 Cats are ambush predators, of course they're more independent than dogs. Just because it's possible to train them doesn't negate anything I said.
>>702936216 >cats are excellent predators and good for pest control That's the entire reason we keep them around in the first place you fucking idiot.
>they can carry diseases Just like any other animal. Pretty much every plague in history was transmitted to humans through some domesticated animal or another. Toxoplasmosis is smalltime compared to fucking smallpox from cows, for example.
>>702937299 no my point is that house cats are just as obedient as dogs are, especially when raised from birth. They both latch on to and listen to the alpha within their group. If either thinks they are higher in the hierarchy than you, then you fucked up.
>>702937299 >cats are excellent predators and good for pest control cats are terrible pest control, terriers are far better and even selective in what they kill.
no one keeps cats around for 'pest control', if you've got a rodent infestation you need to learn how to store your food properly.
even if rats were a problem, you're still better off with a bunch of rats shitting in your cabinet than a cat pissing over your furniture it's entire life. >Just like any other animal. cats are the only host of this brain parasite that's already infected half of our population. >Pretty much every plague in history was transmitted to humans through some domesticated animal or another. mostly fleas, those aren't domesticated.
it's ironic because cats are more prone to fleas than dogs are since 'outdoor' dogs aren't really a thing.
>Toxoplasmosis is smalltime it's a fucking brain parasite, when has a BRAIN PARASITE ever been something not to worry about?
>>702938700 Favorable traits in humans are not the same as favorable traits in other animals. Innovators, philosophers, inventors, artists ect are prized humans in society. And a mindless drone simply indulge in the creations of those that don't conform.
>>702938784 Have had yes, out of the three cats I've had in my family/lived with 2 needed a bullet and I loved the other one. Never lived with a dog I didn't love, although I'm not stupid enough to keep a retarded tiny braincased yapdog either.
>>702929392 I actually kind of agree with this to some extent. although it does depend on the personality of your pet whether it is a cat or a dog. But when it comes down to it I like dogs better, cats can still be pretty cool though no doubt about that. And also litterboxes smell worse than any dog and it also seems like dogs are more affectionate than cats.
>>702927626 Can't speak about all cat people but one of my roommates jade a cat and it was the fucking worst. Her room always smelled like cat shot and piss and she was fucking sloppy and nasty and always wondered why guys didn't like her or why she couldn't get a man. Bucause you have a box full of shit and piss in your room that you are too lazy to clean you nasty ass bitch. 4.5/10 for triggering me and making me respond. Pic related my dog watching me shit because I watch him shit I guess
>>702939648 As I said before, to anyone who isn't egocentric, feeling the need to be remembered after death is a clear sign of this. I couldn't give a fuck who remembers me after I die because I have no use of anything at that point. Enjoying life and the people around me on the other hand...
