Are you a cat or a dog person?
I have both a dog and a cat and love them both. Yet I still get asked which I prefer, my dog or my cat.
That answer depends on the day.
Last night my cat decided he wanted to sleep up by my face, around my head and everywhere he could to wake me up. I’m not sure what his problem was, but I seriously could have given him up for adoption last night. Instead, I put him in his bed in the living room and shut the bedroom door.
Do you have problems with your cat or dog keeping you up at night?
Are cat people different from dog people?
According to a human-non-human study also known as “Anthrozoology”, dealing with the study of people, pets, and wild animals.
The conclusion is that people are weird about their animals.
I’ve found both cats and dogs are marvelous company, as long as I treat them with respect.
