For some reason cats love dying on me so I've come to the conclusion that they're pretty average.

Dogs are good though. My dog isn't the best of hunters though...it hasn't got the hang of how to do it. You know how some dogs will point to their target with one of their front legs? Well my dog points with the front leg and then lifts one of the back legs and stretches it out too (pointing behind it of course). So she loses balance every time and falls over. So she obviously hasn't had a good strike rate for killing pigeons.

Quit hunting so close to the highway. She's obviously pointing at road kill and letting you know the prey is already dead. :rofl:

I like dogs better. All the cats I have ever owned have been crazy (The one had a thing about pulling out all its hair :confused: ) so they got put o prozac which made them more normal. I would never have a cat again, this is my baby helping me in the garden

I like all animals. In this case though I'm gonna have to say dogs are better. They are so much more intelligent. With me, it really comes down to the individual cat/dog and how they act, just like humans. Many people treat their pet wrongly and cause it to have major behavior problems.

I can't decide between either cats or dogs (I've never had either). Perhaps I should settle for an oyster.

How about starting out with a Norwegian Blue Parrot (pining for the fjords)? I understand that they're really easy to clean up after, they're not noisy, and they don't molt.

Well, Ember has been swaying my opinion toward cats as being much smarter than dogs.

Cats read PF...

She was helping me write my grant proposal there. She took a very keen interest in the atlas of the rat brain. :biggrin:

Uh oh, the smilies don't work. Duck!

That's why she's reading Larkspur's posts and not yours. :tongue: Larkspur tells her how pretty she is. :approve:

They have all been eaten by Albin, the white moose, I'm afraid.
Only recently was it discovered that albino moose are carnivores.

Our cats are evil, mean, and probably smoke cigarettes when we're not home.
I thought of your kitties as soon as I saw this picture! :biggrin:

Maybe that's why I haven't seen a white-tail all season. An albino moose moved in and ate them all. I never spotted the albino moose during the summer, but now that there is snow everywhere, that rascal would be practically invisible, like "Predator".

I hate all pets, but for this survey I'll go with cats. There aren't enough ways to skin a dog.

Get a knife and I'll email you a list.

I love my cats and would never say anything bad about them.

Help me! My cats have learned to use the Internet and have been watching waterboarding videos!

Awwwwwwwww!!! I wonder if any of Ivan and Tsu's cats would try to adopt baby skunks? :biggrin:
They already DID!!! Remember them bringing the skunks into the kitchen for snacks?!?!? I'd be sitting there in the living room and suddenly get a good whiff of 'something', turn around and look into the kitchen, and there'd be a SKUNK eating the cat food right behind my chair!!! :surprised

Cats suck. There's a reason Dogs are considered man's best friend.

Although I admit I'd probably feel different;y if I wasn't allergic to cats.
