    I have a dog and a cat. I like both but I think my preference is 70% cat and 30% dog. I tend to find the fawning of a dog annoying and sometimes they don't know when to leave you alone (my Aussie, Dax, follows me around the house). The cat--I mean, come on, they were WORSHIPED! I love them. My kitty Azrael is so very awesome...even when he is tripping me up on the way to the kitchen.

    I do wonder why cats often draw such a love or hate response. My sister and her husband detest cats. They are also the type that like to charm people. Could that be the key?

    I like all animals, but prefer dogs over cats. Also, I'm allergic to cats, so dogs could win based on the fact that they don't make my eyes swell shut. :rolli:

    I had another kitty Floopy but she is being taken care of elsewhere now (Always remembered though)

    Just don't tell him about Toxoplasmosis.
    It's actually pretty awesome.
    Toxo generates cysts in the brain of the rat. These cysts take over the fear center of the brain, but specifically the fear of predators. Common fear sources for rodents (e.g., bright lights, open spaces, etc.) still operate perfectly well in an infected rat, but now they are no longer afraid of cat piss.
    That alone would be cool enough, but Toxo takes it one step further. When Toxo is going about futzing with the fear center of the brain it also goes into the sexual excitement part of the brain. It hijacks the incoming Fear of Cat Piss™ and instead diverts the signal to the Barry White™ center of the brain.
    ...

    A small literature is coming out now reporting neuropsychological testing on men who are Toxo-infected, showing that they get a little bit impulsive. … And then the truly astonishing thing: two different groups independently have reported that people who are Toxo-infected have three to four times the likelihood of being killed in car accidents involving reckless speeding.
    Another controversial idea is that latent infection might trigger some forms of schizophrenia. Fuller Torrey at the Stanley Medical Research Institute in Maryland and his team has found that schizophrenics are more likely to be cat owners, and to have latent toxoplasmosis. What's more, drugs used to relieve schizophrenia symptoms happen to harm the parasite, at least in thetest-tube. Torrey believes this may be why the drugs work.
    Crazy cat lady might actually be crazy.

    I was actually going to bring it up too, but it seems you beat me to it. Worth taking some further information into account for a full picture, it gets even more interesting:

    Other studies suggest that the parasite may influence personality. There are claims of Toxoplasma causing antisocial attitudes in men and promiscuity (or even "signs of higher intelligence" ) in women, and greater susceptibility to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in all infected persons. A 2004 study found that Toxoplasma "probably induce[s] a decrease of novelty seeking."

    According to Sydney University of Technology infectious disease researcher Nicky Boulter in an article that appeared in the January/February 2007 edition of Australasian Science magazine, Toxoplasma infections lead to changes depending on the sex of the infected person.

    The study suggests that male carriers have shorter attention spans, a greater likelihood of breaking rules and taking risks, and are more independent, anti-social, suspicious, jealous and morose. It also suggests that these men are deemed less attractive to women. Women carriers are suggested to be more outgoing, friendly, more promiscuous, and are considered more attractive to men compared with non-infected controls. The results are shown to be true when tested on mice, though it is still inconclusive. A few scientists have suggested that, if these effects are genuine, prevalence of toxoplasmosis could be a major determinant of cultural differences.
    Correlations have been found between latent Toxoplasma infections and various characteristics:

    Decreased novelty-seeking behaviour
    Slower reactions[citation needed]
    Lower rule-consciousness and greater jealousy (in men)
    Promiscuity and greater conscientiousness (in women)

    I'm not sure if i need Toxoplasma .. But the idea sounds pretty interesting.

    LOL. I remembered the thing about female promiscuity but I couldn't find it.

    It could just be that more independent / intelligent / risk takers prefer cats to dogs, of course.

    Correlation indeed doesn't imply causation - but why in that case would this principle only apply to women?
