There is a reason why a dog is referred to as "man's best friend." The domestication of dogs dates back at least 30,000 years.
Through history, dogs have been the human race's devoted aids and companions. Unmistakably, people and dogs have a special affinity.
Even cat lovers surely wouldn't say that they enjoy using the litter box. There always seems to be a stench, no matter how well you keep up with them.
Debris frequently leaves footprints throughout the house. In a tiny house, it is nearly impossible to find a suitable location for the litter box. Scooping the material is unpleasant and dusty.
You can only play with your cat so much, after all. Many cats enjoy playing with string toys and will bat their tiny cat balls around, but it almost seems as though they are making fun of you. They are not limited to playing only with other people.
Cats often generally sensitive to their surroundings and averse to change. Many dogs tend to be more accepting of change, especially when their owners act as though it doesn't matter.
Dogs can be worried and scared, of course, but generally speaking, they tend to be less so when major lifestyle changes are involved.
If you try to control a cat, you might hear a faint kitten giggle. The majority of cats will walk where they want to, jump where they want to, scratch where they want to, and mark everything they feel needs to be marked.
Cats can be trained, yes, but even cat enthusiasts concede that it's typically not as simple as training a dog. Even cats who are motivated by food will grow weary of training sessions and leave.
Alternately, they'll simply smack the food out of your hand and consume it. In general, cats are better at teaching us humans than we could possibly do.
A cat is not naturally inclined to protect you or your house. When in danger, cats are more prone to flee and hide. However, most dogs have an innate desire to defend their owners and their property.
When there are strangers nearby, they'll growl or bark to let you know, and many of them will even frighten them away. Dogs are able to sense our dread, and they will react if they believe we are in danger.
When was the last time you seen a cat helping others while wearing a vest? Although cats play a significant role in animal-assisted therapy, they typically aren't as well-suited to other jobs as dogs are.
For almost as long as they have existed on earth, dogs have been assisting humans. Hundreds of years ago, they were employed as herders and drovers on farms.
Cats frequently pursue their own interests while at home or while out and about. Although it's not typical, some people have been known to lead their cats about the neighbourhood while wearing leashes.
Although there are numerous cat breeds, few of them differ significantly in terms of size and structure.
Sure, you have your enormous Maine Coon and your Devon Rex with its distinctive coat, but the majority of house cats are mixed breeds, also known as "moggies."
