Why would he say conflicting things about what he likes?

Long story short, I am in a relationship, and this guy who is a friend of my boyfriend is also in a relationship. For a while there have seemed to be signs that this friend might like me— even my boyfriend has questioned it. A while back we were walking and I saw a stray cat and I Got excited and went to go pet it, and he commented on how he wished his girlfriend liked cats. He then told a story about a dog being mean to his girlfriend and how it was just one example of why cats are better. Then the other day pets came up and I said how I loved cats and he said “eh cats are ok. Dogs are better. I would want a dog over a cat.” These are basically conflicting attitudes. Was he trying to show he liked the same thing as me the one time and then suddenly was honest about it later or what? It was weird because he initially made me think he loves cats and then recently made it seem he is indifferent to them or maybe doesn’t like them much at all.
