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

Cats, hamsters, parrots, fish, lizards, snakes, tarantulas, rats, mice, guinea pigs, canaries, turtles, millipedes, snails, and hermit crabs make better pets than dogs.

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 agree, but I love both dogs and cats! ❤️

2 Cats have better toilet skills

you can easily train a dog to poop in a certain place, so u could poty train it actually. you can even teach it how to use and flush the toilet. but yes I agree that a LOT of cats have better toilet skills. but dogs can be trained to use the toilet too.

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).

EXACTLY. My cat has only had accidents three times, and even then, he was probably just annoyed and he knew what he was doing.

3 Cats don't bark

they meow. sometimes it's really loudly and they wake you up, lol. I mean generally their quiet tho. but u can train a dog to not 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

4 Cats don't attack your guests

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Well, No and yes. My cat woke my mom at 4 o clock but that was a long time ago. Now she stopped. Dogs can wake you up though with a startle by thyre loud barking!

Every now and then they will, but I enjoy it when they do.

My cat does, but he is kind of dumb.

7 Cat's are cuter than dogs

Finally someone said it! almost every cat breed is cute, but only a few dog breeds are, the most of them is not cute, they have wrinkles all over they face, is that cute?

Face it cats are way cuter than dogs. Dogs on the other hand are only cute when their small cats are cuter any age.

Dogs are so overrated. Although I think dogs are cute, cats and kittens are the cutest animals ever.

I just love their little tiny bump on their back, those fluffy little therapists

8 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

The sweet purr of a cat is one of the best reason that cats are a awesome pet while dogs just wag their tail seriously?

I think that "purring" is just growling, but very low and quiet.

A cats purr brings peace and happiness to my heart.

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.

Yes they are! I would be living in a hosue with all kintds of mice if not for cats!

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 Contenders
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.

I never thought about it, but this is true.

dogs are pretty entertaining as well, and they're funny and like playing, like cats

12 Cat's are less violent

cats will scratch or bite you if you PROVOKE them FIRST. corrct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure almost all dogs only get violent if they feel threatened, and most dogs don't kill

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.

Dogs way more often wreck household items than cats do. But cats do also do it sometimes.

Dogs kill humans everyday cats kill once a year cats are better anyway

13 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.

14 Cat's rule the internet

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

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

Grumpy cat little bub you name it a cat rules it.

Yep. The internet is dominated by cats.

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!

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.

Walking yo dog gets in the way of your schedule.

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!

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

Ever saw a cat beg for affection?

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