There are several things you should take in mind when deciding if Cats or dogs are the best pet for you.
Here are the 11 things you should consider when you are deciding which pet is the best for you.
1. Cats are cleaner
Cats are trying to keep clean and odor-free, while a dog might smell bad sometimes. If that troubles you much, you’d better think twice.
2. Dogs are easier to train
Dogs are easier to train. Proud cats do whatever they want to. There is no easy way to know how a cat will behave. Cats think humans are the pets and not vice versa.
3. Cats are not as noisy or clumsy
Cats don’t take up much space and are not so noisy. Nobody will run loudly around the house and wreck everything in his path.
4. Dogs are more loyal
No animal can be more loyal than dogs, your dog always follows you. Many people are saying that dogs are attached to a person, and cats are more attached to their places.
5. Dogs need training and more work
Every dog needs training and learn commands; while a cat should be only taught to behave, to use a litter box – and that’s it.
6. Dogs are a man´s best friend
Dogs are a man’s best friend. They comfort you every moment you have with them. There is nothing more important to your dog than your happiness. On the other hand, cats have a calming effect on our mind and soul. Cat’s purring is one of the most comforting sounds in the world.
7. Dogs are more expensive
Pets are a serious financial undertaking, so you need to budget accordingly. You will need care products, toys, accessories, and a bed. But it should be noted that a cat eats less food than even the smallest dog.
8. Dogs love their master more
For a dog, love for its master comes in the first place. We can see many examples of this in films and cartoons: Hachiko, A Dog’s Purpose, Beethoven and many others. Cats are more selfish. They love you, of course, but less than themselves.
9. Cats are less sociable
Cats will communicate and play with you only if they want to. Some of them don’t like being hugged and play with children, unlike dogs, who are delighted to spend a lot of time with a human. Almost all dogs adore any child they happen to meet and play.
10. Cats do often lose more fur
Because our cat is indoor only, there is an excess of hair in the house that gets on furniture, bedding, and clothes, unlike dogs.
11. Dogs needs walking
Cats don’t need to be walked 2-3 times a day, like a dog – in any weather and no matter how you feel. But you should not miss the opportunity of walking a cat on a leash sometimes.
So which one is the best?
This is something you have to decide yourself if you are more of a cat person or dog person.
In our opinion – If you have your own house and love beeing active – choose a dog. Walking outdoors in the fresh air and constant physical activity is a great way to maintain both you and your dogs’ health.
If you can, you could get both cat or dog. It does sometimes need a bit of training, but it will be worth it later when they are best friends.
In any case, having a pet is a great idea. Cats and dogs have their pros and cons, and we are sure that you will choose a pet to your liking.
