Top Ten Reasons Why Cats are Better Than Dogs

I've had both and love both. Currently, though, I only have one old and very sweet kitty...
The Top Ten
1 Cats aren't needy

They don't need to be walked. They don't need to be boarded when you leave for a few days. They don't need your attention every second. They don't need to come every time someone calls them. They only need you to understand that you should be grateful they are letting you live with them.

You shouldn't need to be grateful that cats let you live with them, they should be grateful that you provide them a home!

I think a reason that should be added onto the list is 'Dogs literally drool.'

Cats are the BES. Dogs like their own poop, but cats are clean, and hide it.

2 Cats have better toilet skills

Oh yeah, sure. You don't have to. You know, you CAN just leave the Cat's terribly awful smelling business inside the litter box in your house. Feel free. And also, Cats' pee smells TERRIBLE and you can't get rid of it. But, sure! Get a Cat!

Ya, but the litter box makes the house stink! It only takes two weeks of training to train your dog to poop and pee outside. When they are inside and need to go potty, they just bark at the door telling the owner to open it.

Dogs poop everywhere, and expect you to follow after them, cleaning their dudes up for them. Cats, on the other hand, bury their poop, and never make you see it.

They don't go on your floors (unless their litter box is dirty or they are mad at you, and then only if you really deserve it).

3 Cats don't bark

Some talk to you, but none make as much noise as dogs. In fact, cats seem to like peace and quiet whereas dogs like chaos and mayhem.

Possibly the number one reason I prefer cats. Second would be self-control, but the two are closely related.

My one cat chirps so softly, the other yowls after every meal

Yeah so, your mama talks a lot but does that make her bad?

4 Cats don't attack your guests

I know what you're about to say. Stop right there. Cats do not hide when other people come over! Our cats go running when they hear the doorbell.

Most likely, a cat will ignore your guest and certainly will not jump them at the door or try to hump them or try to lick them or try to bite them or bark at them. Occasionally, a cat, sensing one of your guests isn't very keen on felines, will try to improve relations with said friend by sitting in his/her lap, but this is for diplomatic purposes only.

Cats are friendly, shy, and curious. They will not scare the crap out of your guests by jumping all over them and drooling everywhere. Cats Rule, Dogs Drool is actually a scientific fact. Look it up.

My cat will greet a visitor at the door and sit near them and let them pet them. They don't scare people with barking or growling.

5 Cats think hygiene is very important

They clean themselves 5+ times a day, only outdoor cats need infrequent baths. Plus wet dog smells horrid, cats don't smell at all (Except their litter box, which ppls bathrooms smell too, so who are you to judge them?)

And they do not deliberately roll around in the most foul thing it can find like mud or feces or something dead and putrefying.

Shiba Inus care about hygiene, too

Very funny list blue devereaux

6 Cat's don't wake you up at 6 in the morning

My dogs wake up at about 7 am. (they are not old dogs either), but when they wake up they don't wake me up, they just quietly sit in there crates and wait for me to take them out.They have waited without making a sound for almost 2 hours once. when I was sick, and my dad was going to take them out but forgot. My friends cat woke us up at a sleepover at 3:30 a.m. for no reason. She climbed all over us and scratched our faces and hissed. She wasn't sick (we checked), she wasn't hungry (we checked), and she wasn't thirsty (we checked). After she had woken us up she just walked out too.

No... They don't.
They wake you up at 5 in the morning cause they are hungry or want to be let outside.
Believe me, I have a beautiful cat, and a dog, but the cat always wakes me up, while there isn't a peep from the dog until I wake up.

It's a good thing that Dogs do. They want you to have a full, beautiful day to enjoy. The only reason Cats don't is because they don't value you, and don't care how long they go without you. Dogs love you.

Cats never do this because they don't bark at 6 AM. Someone in my neighborhood that has a dog that is just so annoying that's why cats are awesome

7 Cats purr

Cats only purr when you give them affection. They love you, when I was younger, my cat used to try and scratch me as a kitten because I was rough on her. But I was young then. So NOW I understand you need to be gentle to these precious little adorable things so the don't bite or scratch you. I agree on some of your things about cats are bad but the aren't. They were from Egypt. Gods held them in the highest esteem. I hope your understanding me

THIS LIST IS THE DUMBEST THING ON EARTH. Cats and dogs are equal in reality, but people grow up with different experiences. Like me, I had two dogs and two cats. I prefer cats over dogs because I interacted with the cats more. (My cats are hypoallergenic the dogs aren't) but yeah, this list was probably made to start drama and get attention, but the truth they're equal! Some people like dogs, some will like cats and that's FINE!

Cats pure so! They only pure when they get cat food. Dogs show affection to! They lick you and love you. Underline thing is DOGS LOVE YOU CATS don't

Oh yes, because my dogs don't purr and just nuzzle against me that must mean cats are bettter and they despise me. Everyone shows affection in their own way.

8 Cat's are cuter than dogs

What dog people think dogs are like: My dog will die for me! He has never ever been angry at me! I give him so many treats and toys! He is never tired! I can wake him up a 12:00 am and he'll be ready to play! He defended me from robbers by just barking at them! Then he grabbed a knife and stabbed them!

I'm sorry, but all pets are individuals. My dogs honestly will just run around when I come home then just go outside for the rest of the day. I can grab a laser pointer and my cats will run around day and night.

If you think that cats just scratch and hiss at you, then you clearly either have a lack of experience or don't know how to interact with them properly, in which case I feel sorry for the cats because they would only do that if you've really upset them!

This is an opinion. This does not prove anything. Some people think dogs are cuter or cats are cuter. And for most people, it depends on the dog or cat breed. You can not prove if Cats are cuter or Dogs.

You Pepole who wrote comments like dogs are stupid are really stupid there selves. Who would think cats are cuter then dogs. You people just got me really mad! Who would want a hissing screaming monster for a pet

9 Cats are better at killing

Any creepy, crawly things in your home will be dead once your cat is on to it. Dogs can't catch spiders or moths or roaches.

My cat and I make a great team. I set the trap, she kills the mouse.

My Cat caught a bat and about 50+ other animals.

That's a bad thing

10 Cats will bring you gifts

Cats like to bring its co-habitator tokens of affection like a dead rodent or bird. The only thing a dog will bring you is something you threw for him to go get in the first place.

My cat brought us a dead mouse from the basement. Ha, ha...

50 gifts kinda absurd. XD

The Newcomers

? Cats are funnier

11 Cats are entertaining

You can watch a cat play or try to catch something like a laser beam; the cat will perform for as long as it deems necessary. With dogs, on the other hand, once they catch you watching them, then they are all up in your face wanting you to join in. It's like going to a show and the obnoxious performer tries to drag you on stage to do something assinine.

Dogs are, too. I've had both Cats and Dogs, so from personal experience, I know that both can be entertaining, Dogs even more so.

I never thought about it, but this is true.

12 Cats are discriminating

I don't know which I prefer, cats or dogs, but I will say here that dogs are more social animals. I did at one point have three of each, before one of my dogs died five months ago. The night before his death, one of my other dogs, I think, was first to know he was dying. And she gave him her bed, and despite the fact that he threw up on her a few times, she didn't respond dramatically, and just licked him clean. She did all what she could for him, and was, of course, devastated the next day; she stopped eating for a few days afterwards. My cats, although they noticed his abscence, did not appear emotionally affected. They carried on. That's why, in terms of social behaviour, I prefer dogs.

Dogs will slobber on or show affection to most anyone including its owner. Cats, however, show affection to those deserving of it. If a cat tries to nuzzle you or purrs for you, then you know you are something pretty special. Cats also show their discriminating and refined tastes by letting you know which type of food it absolutey under no circumstances will eat. Dogs eat anything including cat poo.

Dogs only show affection to those they love and trust

13 Cat's are less violent

The only reason why so many people are arguing about dogs is that dogs have a very good reputation. The stereotypical dog is sweet, kind, never poops on the floor, and will carry their owner over a pit of molten lava. The stereotypical cat, however, is lazy, mean, and sits alone all day thinking of how it will take it's next victim.

Cats are hissing monsters! My neighbors cats and every a cat I know always scrapes and hisses. Have you people read bad kitty. My dogs never ever groweled in her life! My old dog only growled to protect us. Cats don't care about you and they hiss not to protect you but to protect them selves

Cats do have claws but they just have little cuts. Dogs can actually kill humans. If you have played Call of Duty Black Ops 1,2
And Ghosts you'll see that they are killstreaks that kill the other players.

This is not proof if you see some cats can be just as mean. If you look in the news or the paper a dog attack doesn't happen everyday

14 Cat's rule the internet

Yeah right. Last time I checked the Internet and the stores there where way more dogs then cats. And what about boo. He's way more popular then any stupid cat

Cats rule the internet, because all the dog people are outside with their dogs, while all the cat people are inside on the internet.

So what? I have no general prefeence, but cats might as well be stealing the attention of the dogs on the internet. Dogs are equally cute, loyal and loving.

Cats ruel the internet to memes to funny videos to vines all ads up to being the ruler of the interwebs. And there is also trolling the cats which preety much counts as funny videos

15 Cats don't need to be walked

I have the worst dog ever. I was trying to walk her and she wouldn't go b/c she was afraid of the garbage truck, and then after it left I went for like five minutes and then she went number two. She wanted to go back then b/c she was scared but the poop bag had a hole in it but she wouldn't go back so that I could clean up the poo that was in the middle of the road. Then I brought her back the house and I was, like, fuming. Then I went and cleaned up the poo and I was, like, totally embarrassed. I will never walk her again!

You're just lazy. You don't even deserve the undying friendship and faithfulness of a Dog if you won't even bother to spend valuable time with them. What's the point of having a Dog that LOVES you if you don't like then at all, right? Better get a Cat, lazy people, that hates you anyway, and takes care of itself (an animal bathing itself in its saliva is the best thing I see each day! And the best thing I smell! ~Crazy Cat Lady {NOT ME}). It even hunts for itself! Innit awesome!? That food you spent money on, going to waste because your little-miss-perfect Queen cat doesn't like it. A Dog? He loves you for you, not for the things you have or the hints you can afford.

Dogs you have to walk them in the morning, afternoon, and night while cats either watch the outside or do whatever outside and dogs sometimes walking them sometimes tires you out.

I wouldn't really mind walking a dog, but there would be days where I just wouldn't want to, but I'd have to.

16 Cats are trustworthy

They are more trustworthy to be left alone than a dog. They are also very loyal once you get their trust. One of my cats tried to bite me and the second I said "No" my other cat, who was watching the whole time, ran over and attacked the one that tried to bite me, which happened to be her sister. Her sister never tried to bite me again.

You can leave your cat in the house when you are out and pretty much guarantee it won't have wrecked the place when you return, including kittens!

Yeah right. You probably never owned a Cat.

17 Cats don't turn on their co-habitators

Ever hear of a cat murdering its owner or mauling some little child? No, you haven't, which is why letting a cat live with you doesn't make your homeowner's insurance go up.

Cats are better then dogs in all ways so yeah dogs are slobbery aliens

Cats rule dogs drool

Sure right about that! Cats are more nice!

18 Cats have pleasant noises, unlike dogs.
19 Cats are more dignified than dogs

I so agree with "Since when was wanting affection bad? ".

Since when was wanting affection bad.

Ever saw a cat beg for affection?

20 Cats do not chase people who are walking, running, or riding a bicycle

My cat claws the heck out of whoever is holding him when a car drives by and we're outside. He's scared of eveything...

21 Cats aren't messy

Ok cats can be messy it depends on the behavior but they don't poop everywhere
