    As an animal lover, I'd pick both. As an admirer of traits such as independence and judiciousness, I'd pick a cat over a dog. Most cats you can set loose in the streets and have the confidence that they'll return to you when playtime is over; as they're usually smart enough not to interact with strangers. I don't like the idea of animals having to be caged up, even in spite of dangerous conditions out in the street. If millions of lives were sacrificed in wars in order to obtain freedom, I can rationalize that freedom is more valuable than a life confined behind walls. And also, they also smell a whole lot better than dogs. Cats are my ideal pet.

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    My garden does much better due to the efforts of my cats in small rodent control. The neighbors have noticed the effect as well. When my old cat died an untimely death, they were quite disappointed.

    I used to not really like either but both are growing on me. I probably would really like dogs a lot except the one I live with sheds his light-colored hair EVERYWHERE so I have to lint roll my clothes every morning. Cats are nice in that they are lower-maintenance. But both are fun to play with, in different ways.

    I'm more of a dog person. They just seem more youthful and lively than cats - even in old age.

    But I'll happily snuggle with either one. As long as the love is there, that's all a pet owner could ask for.

    The social dominance part works for me, political view does not.

    But then again, this is someone who will play with his friends' dogs, cats, hamsters, mice, chinchillas, ferrets, birds, turtles, and so on. I also make a point of befriending/interacting with the animals every time I visit a zoo/aquarium, with me wanting to take 50 animals home by the end haha. I only draw the line at snakes and tarantulas. /irrational fear

    I feel like if a cat likes you, it's because it chose to. If a dog likes you, it's because it's needy.

    I like both, but prefer cats. Cats are smart assholes and dogs are clingy idiots.

    Dogs are obviously superior to cats but I do not hate cats.

    Actually I do.

    I don't mind either but prefer cats primarily because dogs are dependent on the owner than cats are. Which isn't to say that there are cats who aren't in a bad way temperament wise because of owners, they are just more independent.

    I prefer spiders and rodents to both, though.
