Cat or Dog Poll

Are you a cat person or a dog person? It seems like there are many cat people here. I was just curious the ratio of cat to dog people. So, cat or dog?

    I say both, but with a stronger leaning toward cats at present.

    And yeah, I mean there are families and persons who have both cats and dogs, so why not?

    Always considered myself a dog person, but with only 2 dogs and 13 cats i may need to reconsider.

    I love both and all animals but my baby is my 13 lb. grey and white long hair ragdoll "kitten". He follows me everywhere and mews "mama"! I grew up in a home with 13 cats at one time, also several dogs over the years, but my babies are my cats. We now have four cats and one dog.

    It may be a stereotype but I think people who like to hang out on the internet are generally possibly more cat people, maybe more introverted than dog people.

    I like cats and dogs but I'm partial to keeping cats, they work well with my crazy schedule. And I love cats.

    Cats are great.

    I’m a dog person. I have owned a few cats in the past, but dogs are more suited to our family.

    I'm an animal lover overall but I'd say dog person because I'm severely allergic to cats and couldn't ever have one as a pet. So, two dogs share my life.

    Used to be cat, but more and more leaning to dogs. If I really had a choice, I would have a couple of lambs for pets. Fun to walk. Soft to pet. Ok if you ignore them a day or two.

    I wouldn't trade my cats for any dog in the world, but I would say I am generally speaking more a dog person.

    I currently have three dogs and no cats.

    I’ve been involved in dog rescue for over 30 years. I specialize in working with abused or neglected dogs. All of my pets have come from this group.

    I’ve rescued two cats but prefer dogs and always have a pack of them.
