I can't pick! All my life I've had cats (ALWAYS wanted a dog..would cry myself to sleep sometimes!) But I always considered a cat person, just because that's all I had ever had. But, 6 months ago, my boyfriend and I adopted a puppy, and the first month or so of having him, i declared myself a cat person!!!!

However, after living with him for 6 months now, I love him, and am now a dog and a cat person
I like dogs because they're more of a companion, but I like cats because they're not as much work, and you can just leave them be lol

Next Disney Vacation in the works!

I was raised with dogs and my hubby was raised with cats so to keep everyone happy we have equal numbers of each. Currently we have a Bassett hound and a brother/sister pair of Australian Retrievers and 3 cats

Cat. They are independent and generally quiet. I also like that they MAY cuddle with you on a cold night...assuming they feel like it! Plus you can leave them home alone for a weekend. We currently have two cats and once they are gone...no more pets due to allergies.

I'm a cat person

I can tolerate dogs, but they get on my nerves.

I currently have a cat so I said cat. I normally call myself a dog person, because we always had dogs growing up.

Both! Proud pet parent of 2 shih tzus and 6 cats! Love that all my fur babies have such different personalities from snuggle buddies to one that is a total loaner and another that is just outrageously neurotic, lol! They all provide hours of entertainment and unconditional love!

Dog. Golden Retriever. So loveable! Easy to train Makes me exercise. Protects me. Even though all a burglar would have to do is pet him and give him some chicken. But his bark is loud.

I love cats too. But we live up against the foothills and have lost two to coyotes. Even the house cat who was declawed, but he slipped out one evening. It was horrible. I put him in my room when we had guests. When they left, I saw my bedroom door open. Panic. Horrible to think about what happened to him. I'm still hoping someone found him and kept him. Put signs up and everything. It's not fair to have cats where I live. Many signs up weekly.

My Golden will want to chase at the coyote and they run from him. I've seen some stare downs. Coyotes are getting braver and braver.

I'm a Dog person with two cats and no dogs I really, really want another dog but I just won't do it. There is no one home all day anymore and we love to get away. So, we got one cat for DD three years ago and another feral adopted us about a year ago.

Whoever said that cats were easier than dogs apparently haven't had a cat like my Maine Coon. What a pain in the butt he is. My many dogs never created the havoc he does...the upside, and the real reason we got cats is the ability to leave them home for long periods of time without anyone there.

Yea, I don't like one of them but I do love him and I know he loves me...he follows me around the house until I provide a lap (just one of his more annoying habits)
Last night my sister and I were sitting in the den and I said to her, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle to keep me alive. That would be no quality of life at all. If that ever happens, just pull the plug!" So she got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine.

I always considered myself a dog person, but I never had one. Didn't have one growing up, and I always used to say I'd get a dog someday. But that day never came; the time was never right. DW and I like to go away frequently on weekends and you just can't leave a dog alone that long. Besides, they're too much work for us now, almost like having another child to care for.

About a year ago our daughter in Florida brought us a cat she found as a stray. She already has two cats and just couldn't take care of another. DW always wanted a cat; I was hesitant. But we've grown attached to him and now I'm glad we have him.

I would say both, but I prefer cats because they are so simple to take care of. Not sure that makes me a cat person or just lazy.

I have 2 dogs now. I have had cats longer than I have had dogs.

The dogs are coming up on 9yso. When they are gone....I AM DONE.

I'm definitely more of a cat person and so is my DS18. We both like dogs, but not as much as cats. I love the for the same reasons many say they don't like them. I like that they are independent, and could take me or leave me most of the time. I swear, when I had a dog, he would come running back to lick me if I had hit him with a baseball bat(I never would have of course), whereas my cats will "punish" me for days if I accidently step on a tail. They think we are their servants, LOL, and I like that spunk.
