    I like both, but I tend to prefer cats. They tend to be more low-key and low-maintenance. And they purr when you pet them. Feedback is good .

    Based on scientific research - a study by Elizabeth von Muggenthaler, she’s a bioacoustics specialist at Fauna Communications Research Institute in North Carolina - a cat’s purr is within the frequency range of 25 to 40 cycles per second (Hz). Exposure to 20 to 50 Hz frequencies increases bone density, relieves pain, and heals muscles. Another study also revealed that the cats had purr frequencies between 20 Hertz and 200 Hertz, notably 25 Hz, 100 Hz,125 Hz, and 150 Hz! Results indicated that despite size and different genetics, all of the individual cats had very strong purr frequencies that fell well within the range of a multitude of therapeutic frequencies.
    A cat’s purr [vibrational stimulation] has been linked to the relief of suffering in persons with both acute and chronic pain, generating new tissue growth, augmenting wound tissue strength, improving local circulation and oxygenation, reducing swelling and inhibiting bacterial growth.
    Cats are good for you! Science says so!

    Don't get me wrong, I pretty much like all dogs. But I find that the larger ones nearly knock me down, and if they want your attention, they're much harder to ignore than the small ones.

    Other people's pets I always make sure they understand what no is. If I have to stare down some mutt the same size as me to slow him down a little, I will. I tell it to take it easy and have it come in slow and I give it all the attention it needs. One needs to be firm, no matter what the animal, and the jumpy stuff eases off. Some people don't like that, but if they have that problem I can't come over. Dogs that have grown up around cats, I find, are the best around me - less training, more time for affection. I also find they jump a little less when they don't need to go so far to reach your face.

    Edit: Oh yeah, never ignore a dog, always pay some conscious attention to where they are so that your body language also shows this. It also reduces their likelihood to bowl you over.

    You should change your name from Beat to FondOfDogs.

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Yes, lifestyle-wise it is easier with cats as you don't have to be concerned about getting home every X number of hours to let them out, take them for a walk, etc.

    My parents didn't let us get/have dogs or cats, so I didn't really learn firsthand how to interact with either. So, left to my own devices, I tended to not really know how to act around dogs (they tended to make me nervous) and I also really disliked the fact that most dogs would jump up on me, run after me/around me, bark, etc, whereas with cats, I felt I 'got' them...they had to trust you first, were more independent, you almost had to earn their 'approval' to pet them... etc. At one time I was taking private ballet classes in an instructors' home, and that woman had five cats, and I remember being fascinated with how totally different all of them were, personality-wise -- so obvious. I'm not saying dogs aren't the same way... I'm just a cat person.

    Doggies. (I think I've used that emoticon exactly twice on here, and both times I was talking about dogs).

    I used to really like cats and I used to be nervous around dogs. Then we adopted a Border Collie when I was sixteen. He became attached to me and showed his affection in obvious, frequent ways that our cats didn't. He'd follow me to the bathroom, lay outside the door until I was done my shower, and then follow me back to my room. While I was petting him, he'd suddenly bounce up and start licking my face while his widely swinging tail repeatedly swatted me. Dogs may not purr, but if they really like the attention they're getting they can still give you "feedback"!) He'd walk up to me while I was lying in bed, lick my face, and settle down beside me.

    I have a Sheltie now, and she has the same kind of demonstrative, enthusiastic personality (with her family anyway; she is cautious of strangers). I love how they put it all out there. And dogs can make me laugh too. I once heard a cat-lover say, "I've never had a dog try to figure out just how to get a pen from my hand while I was busy writing". Well, I've never had a cat barge into the bathroom while I was on the toilet, drop a tennis ball into the underwear around my ankles, and look up at me expectantly.
