Cats and Dogs...

Pin It

I was a cat.

I say this not because I really was a cat, after all, I am actually allergic to them (plus the fact that I hate them too). I say this because I have been a dog before…in fact, some days I am a dog, while other times, I find myself being a cat.

Let me explain…

A dog is an animal that just seems to love you, no matter what. He goes out of his way to be around you too. A simple scratch behind the ears completely makes his day. He comes when you call, and always wants to play. No matter how many times you throw the ball or want to run in the park, he is there. If it’s raining, and you are going out in the rain, the dog usually wants to go with you…he just doesn’t care what the weather is.

Not so for a cat. A cat is a solitary creature; it wants nothing more than to do what it wants, when it wants. If you call it, it does not come. In fact, the more you try to get it to do what you want, the more it tries to stay away. If you give it an order to stay, or to go, it usually does not. When it rains, the cat stays inside, and just lazes around, staying where it is warm and cozy. Maybe if the weather is nice, the cat would oblige to go outside…maybe.

It seems that all of us, at different times or other in our lives, have been either a cat or a dog.


It rained for three days.

I am so a dog...



Images so swiped from somewhere on the Internet which I have since forgotten. Yeah, I'm pretty fickle like that...

Hmmm, I guess my cat is part dog? she will come up to me and nuzzle my chin, she will also try and walk between my legs as I walk and think she is showing affection but I think she's trying to trip me and get my life insurance.... U r right tho generally dogs are unconditional or are they not too bright and just love regardless if they happen to have gotten yelled at? Maybe cats are smarter because if u get made at a cat they know to stay out of your way... Mine does, if I raise my voice at my son she will start talking to me as if she is saying " omg, do u have to yell? my ears can't take it".... my cat loves total calm, anything above a door closing hard gives her a coronary...and they say cats aren't sensitive? HAH!
btw, I'm part dog and cat...

I am soooo a cat. If I want you to pay attention to me, I will sit on your keyboard, dangit. Otherwise, Leave Me Alone.

Love the analogy.

I am most certainly a dog. Always have been, always will be.

And the pic of the golden at the end of the post is awesome! They are my faves!

Is there a cat/dog hybrid?

love this!
tho I did have a cat that I swore was a dog. she didn't bark, but she loved water, loved attention, and wagged her tail :) I miss her.

I am a stereotypical cat tho ... well, except I like to shop when it rains ;0)

I think it is obvious, with you being a cat hater and all, that you have never owned a cat...at least, not a cat like mine.

So true. Lately I have been more of a cat. I would like to be more of a dog.
