Cats are better than dogs. I’m not saying you have to like cats better than dogs. I’m just saying that cats are objectively better. Let’s look at the evidence:
- Cats are quieter than dogs.
- Cats are cleaner than dogs.
- Cats don’t slobber.
- Cats are better at killing vermin than dogs.
- Cats can be litter trained.
- Cats purr.
- Cat owners don’t take their cats into public places.
- Cat videos are more entertaining than dog videos.
- Cats are independent and affectionate.
- Cats mostly don’t try to eat human food.
I could go on, but ten is a nice round number. Most of these should be obvious and need no explanation. Number five might be a little controversial because the cat owner needs to clean the litter. But the advantages of litter outweigh that one disadvantage. You don’t need to take your cats outside, ever. Temperature and precipitation don’t matter to cat owners. Plus, cat owners don’t have to carry around bags of poop.
Seven might also be a little controversial because dog owners like taking their dogs places with them. This is an annoyance and an inconvenience to all the non-dog owners, though. Everyone without a dog in that public place is forced to deal with the dogs. There’s the noise and the poop. There’s the sniffing, slobbering, and licking. It’s just better when pets are left at home.
The last one that could cause some controversy is nine, the affectionate part. Dog owners are always bragging that dogs are more affectionate than cats. But cats aren’t the cold, analytical types that dog owners portray them to be. Cats love to be pet. They curl up in your lap and purr. They are empathetic. Yes, don’t might have more quantity of affection, but the quality is nowhere close.
Like I said at the beginning, this doesn’t mean you have to like cats better than dogs. It just means that cats are better than dogs. If you disagree, I invite you to make your case.
