I thought the discussion about cats vs dogs was getting too far off topic on the other thread about the Fila. We got to talking about whether or not cats are more independent or if they were easier to care for. So....I started this one. I found a couple of articles I found interesting about cats and dogs. If you've had or have cats and dogs, what do you find to be easier to take care of? Of course, some of that probably depends on how solitary your cat is. Some are decidedly more sociable than others. I have had both cats and dogs and although my cats were all very sociable and very much a part of our family, I still found them to not be as dependent as my dogs and a little easier in many ways to care for than the dogs. And your replies don't have to be only about which is easier. You could also include differences you like or dislike about dogs and cats. Or you can talk about anything dogs and cats. Here are a couple of articles that might be a sort of spring board for conversation if you like. If you go to the link, there's a cute picture or two. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3843395.../how-science-measures-cats-dogs/#.UHDxM5iukVE Here, I'll just post the link to the other one or the post will be too long. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/...an-cats-at-least-scientifically-speaking.html Okay...go!
