    Cats are worthless

    I favor dogs over cats.

    I've never figured out the attraction to cats. Other than catching mice I don't know what value cats have.

    Dogs on the other hand will protect people, assist the handicapped, work for law enforcement, herd sheep and cattle, and can pull you on a sled.

    Re: Cats are worthless

    Definitely agree, living on a farm my entire life taught me the real uses for cats were as follows:
    1.) catching things like mice / rats
    2.) replaceable training fodder for our purebred Blue Heeler pups

    Re: Cats are worthless

    The old dog on my Grandparents farm caught more mice than I 've ever seen a cat catch. He would just sniff 'em out.

    Re: Cats are worthless

    The perks of owning a cat are that they're pretty low maintenance compared to dogs. They definitely appeal to the kind of people that have a lazier lifestyle or are frequently busy during the day. If raised correctly, they're pretty loyal companions that often find things to do on their own.

    I personally prefer owning a dog over a cat, if only because I like feeling like I'm raising a pet rather than co-existing with one... but cats do have their merits.

    Re: Cats are worthless

    Cats are great as calming companions.

    I have both a cat and a dog. They both have their pros and cons.

    Wow, that was completely out of nowhere. What a strange topic to just start for no reason other to say you like dogs better than cats.

    Hey everyone, I like the state of Ohio more than I do Pennsylvania. Just thought you should know.

    Oh, and Mars can kick Jupiter's *** anyday.

    Re: Cats are worthless

    I grew up with a cat and a dog. I ended up favoring cats.

    I really despise dog owners who take their pets to petco. I don't pity the owners when they are standing outside in -10 degree weather waiting for their dog to take a dump. I get angry when I am in an apartment and a dog is yelping next door at 5am because someone walked by. One of my ex girlfriends had a large dog and her apartment stunk all the time. The dog, itself, is a stinky animal compared to the cat. Yes a house with cats can stink too if the owner doesn't scoop poop everyday, etc.

    Moot point: look at lolcats then look at loldogs. Loldogs are just embarassing and of a lower quality.

    I expect to get blasted for this.
