>you shouldn't get a cat because it doesn't do what dogs do
why do people insist on arguing this?
If I want a pet that does stuff a dog does, I'd get a dog.
yes but they do it as and when they please. even a rodent, when tamed, will stay tame. you could have a brilliant relationship with a cat and its still not unlikely to attack you with teeth and claws. i never mentioned dogs, because the thread is about it not being relevant, cats are shit tier, below even rats as pets.
In the cleanest way possible, and at least I don't have to pick it up with my hand covered in a plastic bag, still able to feel the disgusting squishiness and warmth.
>mean as fuck
If you get a shitty, unsocialized one, sure.
So are dogs, unless you actually use them for herding sheep or some such shit.
Dude, dogs smell WAAYYY worse. The only thing about cat that could smell is the litterbox, and only if you never fucking clean it.
>does horrendous damage to wildlife
Not if you don't let your cats outside like a mongrel.
I bet all cats hate YOU since you're a retard.
>mean as fuck
not if you socialize them properly and train them on what appropriate play is. same goes for dogs
most people with dogs don't "use" them either, and there's people out there that have cats for killing mice/rats
only if your living condutions are too. they usually smell better than dogs
>damage to wildlife
not if you're a competent owner that keeps them inside
purely an unsupported opinion. just because something doesn't show affection like a dog does doesn't mean they hate you
live in the uk, only people with super expensive cats keeps them indoors.
Although somewhat subjective, cats smell loads worse than dogs, cats food smells horrendous, cat litter smells horrible and cats in general smell. no cat people understand how fucking bad their house stinks, i can tell if someone has a cat by their scent, that says enough.
i specifically didnt compare cats to dogs because this thread is about not doing that... all you cat faggots come on here with your fucking toxoplasmosis and try and prpve how dog like they are?!
cat people are filthy fucking retards.
Even though my family has owned some boss fucking cats, when I was growing up, I still know they're assholes. If they were human, they would display every textbook sign of legit autism. But, like I said, I've known some cool fucking cats that put most dogs to shame.
This is how I put it to my friend though: Dog lovers? Those people like commitment. They like courtship, marriage, romance, and family. Cat lovers? They like cheap dates, one-night stands, and not coming home for a few nights, just because. That's what it's like having those pet. Dogs are 10/10 perfect girl would marry and cats are the fuck buddies of pets. It's all about what you want.
thats like being a cross dresser. You should be ashamed. your cat-friendly dog should hand in his balls... or did you already force him to do that under the knife? international chichi man
cats are your friends, dogs are your slaves
friends might leave, get pissy with you, take time to trust you, dont want to spend every waking moment with you
you can cut a dogs eyes out and it will still wag its tail and greet you, shit is messed up
If you were violent to a dog it would definitely defend itself and resent you. What are you talking about
Plus a bad friend is not a good analogy. A better comparison would be a parent mistreating their child, the child relys on and has unconditional love for the parent because it knows nothing else
This is coming from a dog person, and I hate this meme.
Especialy the cats are not affectionate meme.
They express it differently, not every animal likes to be touched or cuddled constantly. But the cat will seek the companionship of a person it feels comfortable being around, even if that person never fed the cat.
I used to think this when I was a kid but the more I grew around cats I realized I was antagonizing them like a dumb shit without realizing it.
The scratches stopped when I started paying attention and found their boundaries.
>Cats don't show affection or don't 'love' you
This has to be the absolute worst meme. My mom's cat, not even mine, loves it when I visit. Not only does she lay down on my shoes when I take them off but she also wants to play AND jumps up on the bed or sofa for a cuddle.
I honestly can't believe anyone really thinks this unless they are either trolling or have literally never interacted with a cat before.
The only thing I don't like is when people let their cats jump on food areas like the kitchen table or counters.
Bitch, that cat digs around in it's litterbox with those paws. That's nasty.
I can't believe otherwise normal cleanly people on Facebook constantly share those humor pics of people being surrounded by dogs on their bed being like "me in the future", or a shit ton of dogs in their house in general, I can smell them from here.
I have two cats, and two dogs, but both dogs have colossal prey drive and an intense desire to kill small furry things. So we keep them firmly separated.
Cross-dresser. That's great. I like it.
