I've never understood why some people either like one animal or the other. Personally, I love cats and dogs! They're both so cute! In fact, I own both a dog and a kitten. And I love them very much! My family has always had both dogs and cats living with us. And there's nothing wrong with that. My own kitten and dog love each other and get along famously. As do both with me.
My own kitten is adorable! He's a flame point Himalayan and I named him Draco. He's very affectionate and loves attention, whether it be from me or my dog. He always comes over to me and meows or starts trilling. He always cleans himself and he loves to play all the time. In fact, he's a big trouble maker. But I wouldn't have it any other way. He's the sweetest little boy ever! He always follows me everywhere I go and in the morning when I wake up, he comes over to me and bumps our noses together in greeting and I never get tired of it.
My point is that cats can be very affectionate and sweet. You just have to get to know them!
I also love dogs! I have a five year old cream Pomeranian who's very lovable and sweet. Yes, he's loud and likes to bark. He also doesn't like strangers or when I sneeze and he thinks he's a prince. =) But I love him in anycase! When i'm down, he always comes to console me and he loves me just like I love him. He always follows me just like my kitten and likes to lay down next to me. My kitten is cleaner than my dog, who loves to make messes. My dog also loves food, all kinds of it and will always try to steal it from everyone and everywhere. But he's very sweet and loving. He always licks me and gets very happy when I come home.
My point is that, dogs are also very lovable and sweet. Both of these animals should be loved, they're just too cute!
