    I truly hate cats! They're good for one thing only: To toss to my pit bull as a treat, when he does a neat trick.

    Just kidding about the last part, but I do hate cats. It has more to do with most cat owners than the animals themselves. I have a black lab.

  11. Cats defiantly...

    I've had a bad history with dogs twice when I was younger I was mauled by dogs. Once by a little rat dog when I was about five he tore up my leg and once when I was about seven by a big dog (a rotwhieler *sp?) which was a bit more severe. And one day when it was autumn, I was ten; I was running home from school through the desert to avoid getting beaten up. I guess I wasn't looking and I tripped and fell over something, ofcourse on the ground rebounding after the fall I felt this weird tickling feeling all over my leg. I Looked to see what I fell over and discovered I had tripped over a big rotting dog's corpse, my foot had broken into it's body cavity and there was a huge birth of maggots inside and they had started to crawl up my leg. I didn’t sleep for days and that image still traumatizes me, just thinking of the look of the dead dog’s face and its belly full of worms makes my skin crawl. So you can see why I don't like dogs.

  14. HEY NOW!!! We're a 2 cat family, and now you've insulted both my "children" and me!!! :p

    Besides, I bet one of my boys'd kick yer lab's butt in a fight, he's a tough bastid! ;) :D

    For the record, I love both cats & dogs, but I stick with cats for several reasons. Being a musician with a whacked out schedule makes them a better choice for companionship, dogs require regular constant attention, which is difficult for me to give.

    I still shed real tears when I think about my last dog, Ripley. He was a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, and was an amazing friend. He passed at the age of 7 from lymphosarcoma (cancer in his lymph nodes) :( My sister-in-law has a black lab/pit bull mix, she's great, a real sweetheart, so I get my "dog fix" pretty regularly.

    Cat person. For sure. I like cats because they MAKE you earn their affection. It's not that blind "Oh! He's petting me! Oh boy!" affection dogs seem to posses. Cats are also less messy in the house training department.

    And I'd just die if something happened to my cat, Thor. Who, although an alley cat, does a dead on impression of a Russian Blue so well, a few vets have been fooled untill we tell them. He's the nicest cat I've ever met. Not to mention I'm his favorite human....:D
  17. Cats for me - we got three of them!!!

    Dogs, though they are much more of a commitment.
