Are you a cat person or dog person?

Full story:

CAT people vs. DOG people. Which one are you?

A web-based survey of more than 1,000 pet owners nationwide analyzed the key personality traits and nurturing styles of people who identified as a “cat person,” a “dog person,” “both” or “neither.”
Surprisingly perhaps, those who expressed the greatest affection for their pets also rated among the most conscientious and neurotic, suggesting that the qualities that make for overbearing parents might work better for our domesticated canine and feline companions, who tend to require lifelong parenting.
The research was conducted by UC Berkeley and California State University, East Bay. Mikel Delgado, a doctoral student in psychology at UC Berkeley co-authored the study.

Jun 12, 2017 - both have their pros and con's, cats chase mice away, and from scientific research, reduce blood pressure and decrease chances of heart attack. further more, their curious behaviour sometimes sparks a few chuckles, and to add on they have quite the independent behaviour only ever needing small amounts of attention and can be house trained easily.On the other hand, dogs have a multitude of uses, we've got the useful German shepherds and blood hounds who help in farming and police work(respectively), then we've got the fancy poodles to show your wealth.Even with scientific research, dogs help overweight people lose weight and also show signs of increasing the efficiency of infants immunity systems before birth and after and to add on,they're great for people who need something or someone to call a good friend,an example would be mentally or physically handicapped people.Both animals or pets have their pros and con's , it just all boils down to which is more tailored to your tastes, preferences and needs which at that point you can then make the most informed deduction of which you would rather have.Personally I prefer having a bird whom I can train to be my eye in the sky and help deliver small messages to friends and family over short distances or perhaps a tortoise or fish which is fun to observe as they lead their slow and steady life and take not as much effort to care for.

Apr 4, 2017 - The research finds that cats have played a significant role in making 40 dog species extinct, outcompeting them for scarce food supplies because they are generally more effective hunters. But researchers found no evidence that dogs have wiped out a single cat species.

Cats are better
