I personally prefer to be in the company of animals rather than people. I also find animals to be better than people. When I go to my boyfriends house I spend a lot of time talking to, petting and playing with his dogs and his cat instead of focusing on him. (He's OK with it, he thinks it's cute)
So which do you prefer?

Hmm I would say that, while animals offer nice breaks from people, people are generally better to be around. The thought process is more complex and I feel can offer more emotional satisfaction than a dog or whatnot. Dogs, cats, and the like give comfort and are awesome, but I can't talk to a dog (and have it speak back reasonably), I can't laugh with a dog when I watch The Princess Bride, I can't cry with a dog and truly expect him to understand my pain.
I love my dogs and spend time each day petting them or running around playing with them-- but I wouldn't ever substitute a human relationship for that of an animal companionship.
Essentially the spectrum of possibility (the sprectrum being a range of emotional satisfaction) is a lot wider for that of a human than that of an animal. There may be a lot more asshats in the range of humans (the far left of the spectrum), but there are also more people than animals who are loveable (the far right of the spectrum). Animals, on the other hand, just lie around the middle to mid-right of the spectrum. They can offer lots of satisfaction, but are limited by their intellect and understanding of the world.
TL;DR; I chose B. The human conscious is what I value, and animals simply don't have it.3

What is the difference haha XD Certain members of all the species act the same. But I guess that goes back to the fact we all are people, no matter how much we distance ourselves from nature.
If I had to spend a day hanging out with the coolest of the cool or the most of the fun, I would choose dogs and cats, and whatever else would let me pet it. But not chimps, I don't like them XD1
