whos better dogs or cats Anonymous 130364
ive never met a scrote who doesnt prefer dogs
>ive never met a scrote who doesnt prefer cats
nobody says this
I prefer cats but dogs are cool as long as I'm not the one who was to take care of them.
They're animals I feel almost nothing for either, but I guess cats because they aren't loud and annoying and are pretty low maintenance, except for cleaning the shitbox I guess. >>130368
My bf prefers cats and all cats love him immediately but his last one went missing, so he won't get another one.
Neither. Animals are dirty and annoying.
Cats, because they don't kill kids
Cats make better pets. Most dogs are better service animals and most people aren't responsible enough to have anything bigger than a corgi.
Cats are cuter and more fun to watch and interact with imo. But not necessarily easy to take care of, if you're thinking of getting one it's a real responsibility lasting over a decade. I raised a cat from kitten to old age and it was so much extra cleanup and cost I would not do that again. Dogs are cute too but they are just even more messy and louder than a cat. If you want an easy pet, get some fish.
Dogs. Literally couldn't have civilization without them. Even today, they offered unconditional love. Cats carry those gross parasites that change your behavior and thoughts towards cats and so after a couple of years, cat people become super weird and brainwashed about cats. You'll just be sitting in a room with them having a normal conversation when suddenly they'll point to their sleeping cat, that is not doing anything impressive or special, and screech about how cute/amazing/adorable she is. Meanwhile dog people will love their dogs and greet them like friends when they come into the room, but they don't all become weirdly obsessive about them like cat owners do.

Well, of course, because there is nothing to be obsessed about - it's dogs.
Cat shit and piss are less smelly and less of a pain to clean up than dog shit and piss.
Cats don't stink as much as dogs do, and you don't need to give them baths (although you can).
Cats aren't as loud and hyperactive as dogs are (usually).
Men who prefer cats over dogs are generally better than dogfag males, for some mysterious reason.
Cats are disgusting. Imagine letting an animal get up on your counter, stove, table or sink, uhh. Or losing a child because you got toxoplasmosis from your cat. At least dogs stay on the ground and can only get up to the sofa/bed at most.
If you train it really (really) well, maybe when you're not around.
But honestly, I just prefer dogs because you can do rough play without getting scratched.
>Dogs go outside everyday
They don't. Although most do, as they should, since exercise is important.
>step in their own shit and others' shit
Cat's also step in their own shit. Makes no difference if it has sand around or not.
>put their paws all over the floor and all over your body
Do cats fluctuate? Lol. It's literally the same, but they get up to your kitchen table too.
>People who let their dogs on their bed are fucking disgusting
Partially agree, and it's much easier to train a dog not do it than a cat.
>It forces you to lick it by grabbing your hand and putting it inside its mouth
That's funny. Just wash your hand.
>If you even so much as accidentally glance its way it runs up to you and fucking attacks you. Even small dogs will do it
>tfw when you're a delicate and picky flower who gets outpowered even by small dogs and call roughplay "attacking"
>He'd just bark at nothing all night
Agree, that's a win for the cats.
>He was also ugly and stinky/whereas dogs, at best, smell like cornchips
Just don't get an ugly dog. Dogs need baths, if it's stinky is because you let it in the rain/didn't shower regularly.
>>130566>>Men who prefer cats over dogs are generally better than dogfag males, for some mysterious reason
This is so undeniably true and bizarre…
I like both but I like cats way more. It's not that I hate dogs but my God do they smell, they're hyper, needy, more destructive and loud as fuck. Cats can go outside and do fine generally. A dog will roam and never come back. Cats clean themselves and their saliva is even a natural sanitizer. My cat is obsessively obsessively clean.
I go with cats.
> Cats tend to smell really nice in the fur whereas dogs, at best, smell like cornchips. I guess if you're a cornchip fanatic you'll love that
It's true my cat naturally smells like warm and sunshine.
I like both too, just felt the need to reply to those one-sided posts. I'd have both, as I said, my only problem with cats'd be getting scratched all over in rough play (which I love). I guess most don't even like it.
I like both honestly, but I prefer dogs because they're more active pets. I've gotten lucky in that all the cats I've owned are all very affectionate, but plenty aren't at all. I just like dogs more because they feel like they have so much more personality, I can take them on walks, they get along well with other dogs, I can play with them etc.
With cats they feel more just like they happen to be around than an actual pet. I'll walk by them and rub their belly, but most of the time that's about it. Petting a cat I find on a walk isn't too different than most of my experiences with the cats I own.
I don't like to compare them, both are great pets for different people. For example, I'd never recommend a dog to a cat person because they would be surprised at how much extra care dogs need. Also, some people are allergic to one pet but not the other. It also tends to turn into a silly "boys vs girls" debate and assuming that certain pets are for certain genders is retarded.
why are you surprised that an animal smells though
>At least they have the curtesy to wash themselves
Yeah, because when an animal steps in poop, I definitely find that it rubbing its bacteria laden tongue all over the area is ideal and cleans the area. Come on, the cats stepping in their own poop everyday and then rubbing the same tongue it uses to wipe it's anus is definitely an L for cats. Just like the fact that some dogs need to have their anal glands expressed is an L for dogs.
I like both, but dogs win for me. I'd say that on a surface level, cats are cuter, but in my experience, their affectionate moments seem to be far more spread out and more subtle. For example, the friendliest cats i've met show significantly less love than the average dog.
I've never owned a cat, but i have had a few very pleasant experiences with them, and I think that that rarity might be a selling point, adding value. I also enjoy how light they are, they seem like they're made of air compared of my 16kg dog. On the other hand, i think litter boxes are pretty grim, having shit just stagnating in the toilet sounds awful. I don't know how common it is, but hearing about cats bring half dead animals inside, waiting to be found after rotting for weeks is very unappealling.
I think that dogs appeal to a very different idea of pet ownership, where having one has a much larger impact on the lives of an owner. As well as feeding them, you have to be taking them out for excercise at least once a day, training them, keeping them entertained. This level of committment and responsibility means that there is a much smaller group of people who could responsibly take care of a dog, but in return you can have a much more rewarding experiance. For instance, going outside and staying healthy is far more enjoyable with a dog. When I take my dog out, it's a wonderful feeling to see him running around, exploring, and playing with other dogs, many of which know him already. I also think that the community around dog ownership feels a lot more developed and tight knit. Seeing a dog conked out in the evening after a long walk is always really cute as well. I do understand the dislike of dogs in relation to hygiene, but as long as you regularly clean and groom your dog, most people who aren't sensitive to cleanliness can overlook the occasional gross things that they do.
(picrel is my dog's silly paws)
>forgetting the third way
Skunks can be housebroken and litter trained, leash trained, and act as effective home defense.
dogs if you have a large house. cats if you are living alone.
>>130738>act as effective home defense
Damn that would be a good bluff but I would rather be robbed than have a skunk spray in my house.
why do you invade their privacy
You're talking like cats are smearing shit all over themselves, which they don't, they're not humans. Otherwise they would smell like shit all the time (they don't). Just don't let it lick your mouth or stuff like that, and you'll be fine. You can also wash your cat, ffs, it's not a bad thing to do if you're doing it right and not too often.
If you use a washcloth to wash feces off your anus and then never wash the washcloth, just trickle water occasionally over the cloth, everything you wash with that washcloth is contaminated. This is germ theory 101.
Tongues and saliva don't operate in the same way as washcloths and water. Hell, the human mouth is dirtier than most of animals, but you'd still feel less gross kissing a moid than if a cat licked your hand I assume? And don't ignore the rest of my reply
Cats are the pseud or lazy fatasses pet. They turn every ecosystem they're placed into a deadzone. And are too stupid to be trained inviting admiration from similarly stupid people that delude themselves into thinking its independence (nevermind how they whine and beg). Some people will look at a sedantery animal that wastes most of its life either sleeping or pointlessly torturing small animals and consider it deep or intelligent because they love humanizig their pets. Cats also rub their asses everywhere and you keep a shitbox fermenting the air you breathe 24/7 to the point where you become numb to it, brain parasites included. But any visitor can tell a cat lives there - Dog owners KNOW their mutts smell and manage it accordingly as training one is neccessary 100% of the time. The low intelligence means they are absolutely useless for ratting and are constantly outsmarted by rodents (for ever 1 rat toxoplasmosis infection drawn in there are 50 you will not see and cats will NEVER track a nest on their own) whereas a terrier or ferret would immediately genocide the population as they directly go for the nests - proving dogs are superior at the one thing cats are popularized for. They were called barncats because farmers forced them to live in barns and subsist on vermin. There is also this delusional idea that cats are low maintenance yet these people just let them roam all around the neighborhood outside as glorified strays (outdoor stray cats live less than 5 years on average compared to the 20+ and owned indoor cat can live) because mittens needs to be 'wild' and 'independent' or some shit but they'll just get killed effortlessly by coyotes, another superior animal. A stray cat you are friendly with is no different from an owned one that leeches off your food and provides nothing in return. Yes these goes for lapdogs and related genetic failures as well.
tl;dr - own a cheetah maybe it will help some of you lose weight and regain some iq points once the parasite dies out
Cat saliva is a natural antiseptic. I mean I wouldn't want the ability, but that's evolution for you. They can sterilize their own wounds by licking them.
There's also that stupid cope about cat owners being able to "respect boundaries" more because they have to deal with their unpredictable unloving cats lmao.
Please break your rant into a few paragraphs, that hurts my eyes to read>>131134>unloving
Come on now.
>>Duhhh don't you know, if your pet isn't following you around, licking you, and staring at you 24/7, that means it doesn't love you.
How simple minded can a person be to be offended that an animal isn't constantly kissing their ass? I mean talk about fragile.
How much you wanna bet people like this need to be downright catered to everywhere they go???
There is no point in caring for a pet if you have to work for it to love you. That's why I'm not having kids lol
I'm uncertain what children you've been hanging around that don't love their parents. That usually doesn't take effect until after they're teenagers (usual age dogs die anyway).
As long as you don't beat your children they'll love you until they get to that moody phase.
>>131166>There is no point in caring for a pet if you have to work for it to love you.
You need to work less for cats to love you than dogs. Cats love you because you feed them, play with them and clean their litter box. Everything else is a bonus if you truly love your cat.>That's why I'm not having kids lol
Yeah, if you really only want something to love you, go for animals. If you want a huge responsibility for decades, go for kids.>>131168
Tbh, most teenagers don't hate their parents. It's just a desire to grow out of dependency on them and to impress others.>As long as you don't beat your children they'll love you until they get to that moody phase
Disagree, there's plenty of things other than physical abuse that can make you hate your parents/family. Or not hate, but dislike at least
Lol unfortunately I relate. Good God no thanks to kids. But I really don't have to work for my cats love?
Well that's kind of a lie. Every other cat I had was very loving, friendly and wonderful. I just have the one that's cranky and standoffish. I think she can tell I laugh at here though. I don't know which came first me laughing at her or her being a grump.
Lol, okay. So instead of using antibiotics next time you have an open cut, just let a cat lick it. That will show all of us.
saliva isn't sterile. you have more bacteria in your mouth than on your asshole and you don't even lick yourself like a cat
licking can help clean the wound but that's it
fwiw since this comes up too, urine isn't sterile either once it comes outside your body
ummmm, yikes??? touch grass incel
what are you on about
I have a dog but I like cats more
I don’t think people should keep pets.
As someone who lives in a city I love dogs and dog owners, i love the constant sound of frenzied barking and having to dodge shit and piss wherever i go
c.c if it had a /v/ or /qa/ board
I've thought about this for cats. I think the indoor argument for cats is sound, I don't disagree with keeping your cats indoors, but I think people who insist a cat doesn't need some kind of outdoor enrichment shouldn't have cats. Cats are trainable. It's a lie to assume an outdoor cat is not infinitely happier then an indoor cat, it's just environmentally hazardous and potentially dangerous to your cat to let them roam free all day. Cats are not dogs but have similar needs to them, such as, being outside. If you don't take a dog outside, you're liable to be charged with animal abuse, but not cats? Is it because they have a litterbox? I know it's a stretch and most people aren't intentionally wanting to hurt their animal, but it still bugs me. I've just known too many cat owners who like to take the moral high ground with how they raise their cat, have a sense of entitlement above people who let their cats roam free. Unless they let their cat have outdoor enrichment, I don't think they're much better. There are a myriad of other reasons why I think both dog/cat owners could do better for their animals but if it was 100% possible to give your cat/dog the best life, I'm sure almost all people would.
living alone cats are better than dogs.
dogs need a fuckin backyard
You're just a mad woman. Where would all the dogs and cats go?
I don't like being around dogs, they can be annoying af but it would be extremely sad if anything bad happened to a dog. I like cats more.
Yeah, that's largely my thinking. It can be pretty difficult to give an animal everything it needs to be happy and healthy and I've seen so many people barely even try. I've walked my mum's dogs and seen other dog owners do that thing where they grab the dogs lead right at the base, so they're lifting it off the ground, all because it got excited seeing other dogs. It tells me most people don't know what they're doing with regards to training and caring for their pets. Maybe geckoheads and fish fanciers are different.
I also have environmental concerns and a general distaste for that bit when they die and you experience complete emotional devastation.>>131353
We send them to live in space with Laika of course.
Lol get out, this isn't a tourist trap for nubile drifters back to trollxchromosomes with you :v
So I'll give you a minute or two to have a look at the original /r9k/…
… and now you're back you see why any more of that is a bad thing.
Why are cat haters so obsessed with toxo when you're way more likely to get it from undercooked beef? Why do they ignore that dog bites are the most common cause of rabies and they rabies or not, they can and do maul people to death? Why do they overlook that they commonly eat shit? Dogs are alright in spite of that, but people who hate cats just strike me as people who can't deal with not having their ass kissed all the time.
yeah, I get the same vibe. when you ask some of them why they hate cats usually it's like oh they're not friendly like dogs - when it's like, well yeah, cats aren't dogs so they're never gonna be like dogs. but all cats a different and they warm up to you differently. but also why would I just hate an animal because it's not friendly, most aren't and dogs have been bred for those types of qualities anyway. you hit right on the money with that phrasing - they can't deal with not enough ass kissing. I always viewed as they're people who struggle with the concept that some people/animals have boundaries and need to get comfortable with you over time.
I personally dislike cats slightly because as a species, they really only care about themselves. Oh they'll absolutely love you and cuddle you when you're sad, but they don't have cooperation and sisterhood bred into them like dogs do. Every week you hear about a dog dragging a toddler out of a burning house, yet cats doing similar things is far more rare. Cats are great pets and can be excellent companions, yet when compared directly to dogs, they fall short in the majority of categories.
Plus, I find cat owners to be a flavor of more insane than dog owners. You'll be sitting there talking with your friends and suddenly she'll shriek about how "The cat is being so kitty!" and you'll all look over at the cat and she's just sleeping in the sun. That's nice, but you've completely derailed our conversation to make us observe an animal that is doing absolutely nothing out of the ordinary.
Normies who own dogs meanwhile are more likely to be, "She's my fur baby." and then keep her without entertainment locked in a cage for eight hours.>>131607
I have never eaten raw meat in my life, but my cat's litterbox still needs cleaned daily. So my exposure to toxo is way more likely from cats than from beef.
>>131618>they really only care about themselves
Why the fuck you want a damn animal to care about you, what makes you so special. Seem like wishing for a master-slave relationships with your pet
Also fixed for ya>Every week you hear about a dog biting a toddler to blood, yet cats doing similar things is far more rare.
>>132673>Why you want a damn animal to care about you
Cause I'm paying for it's entire life, lol. What type of low self esteem retard pays for someone's medical bills, grocery bills, and rent for someone who hates you? That reeks of someone who's mother never hugged you.
nta but I also don't want to financially support a thing that just lives in my house and seems to hate me
Lol, nice try to off load your low self esteem by claiming that having self respect and boundaries is something only scrotes have. Though you definitely have a point that as a rule women are ground down and so lack any sense of self advocation. But just because a woman is not broken to bridle doesn't mean she's a man, have some self respect for yourself and other women.
Nothing embarrassing about anon's post
no, there is everything embarrassing about thinking of a pet as leeching off of you. or animals in general. straight psycho thought pattern to see a vulnerable creature naturally reliant on you and treat it like it's a mooching relative. odd.
Cats because I enjoy having increased bone desnity.
Based. Cats are more useful than people realize.
Just because cats don't lick your asshole doesn't mean they hate you. Also you chose to have a cat, it didn't just come into your house and demand you to take care of it
a lot of people expect animals to come in two flavors: dog or horse. if it doesn't act like a dog or a horse, it's broken, and should be more dog-like or horse-like.
My response was in direct response to someone asking why you would want a pet to love you. I absolutely believe cats are capable of love, I just don't think they have the intelligence or loyalty of dogs.
cats view you as an equal who is essential for their survival (if indoors only) and dogs view you as their master
intelligence imo is irrelevant so i dont delve into that already vague way of determining worth
Dogs aren't equal in terms of intelligence or loyalty either. If you're willing to maintain a german shepherd then go for it, but cats require less than that and they'd still love you.
I hope he warms up to you
>arguing about what animals love humans more
most people can't even agree on what love is in humans; or at least they acknowledge that it's complicated and ineffable. arguing about what animals feel love towards humans more is pure retardation.
It's not retardation, it's quite normal actually. Humans like to feel loved so speculating how much animals love us if at all is usual.
i don't even understand how or why this is argued. do you people not know how to treat a cat so it doesn't show you affection? it's extremely clear that cats are capable of extreme love. my cats love to be next to me, purr when just looking at me. they are independent when they want to be but just want to be in my presence, near me, be kissed by me. i'm not sure where you guys don't see how clearly cats love. dogs that are not even abused have unconditional attachment that is pretty scary and is kind of dysfunctional emotionally. i wouldn't want an animal to be as physically or emotionally reliant on me as a dog, though it is clear that they do care for their parents/owners and are sweet. cats are similarly capable of love, they just don't have the same obsessive personality that tends to make them a target of abuse as much as dogs do. it's not healthy.
youre replying to the wrong post lol.
TL;DR everybody has individual reasons for wanting a pet. The traits you value in your pet don't make them objectively superior to other animals, it just makes them a good fit your your life.
i wasn't, i was saying with my post that it's weird that people would even try to argue that cats don't love when it's extremely obvious. she was saying it's normal. it's not normal except for people who are oblivious to anything but obsessive affection they've come to expect from dogs
completely unrelated I wasnt saying cats dont love god stop being so duuuuuuuuuuuuuuumb
i never said you said that. i'm saying that i disagree with what you claimed, that it's "normal" for these people to question if cats love when it's pretty obvious they do. it's only "normal" to totally oblivious people.
It wasn't only about cats, and I didn't say question I said speculating
i mention cats specifically because that's the animal these people usually question and accuse them of being incapable of love the most.
so still irrelevant to my post because I was replying to >>133100
about talking which animal loves humans most is pure retardation, arguing that it isn't
When you say dogs aren't equal, do you mean among the various breeds?
i understand that. what i'm telling you is, in essence, what she said, that it is pure retardation only normal to extremely oblivious people who can't tell what love or affection is. to people with normal boundaries that are not emotionally dysfunctional, it's not normal at all. it wouldn't even be a question in their minds, were they reasonable enough to actually analyze the behavior of affectionate animals like, cats, for example, and see that it's very clear that they do love. only the most retarded people would consider it normal to even question when it's so clear.
For the most part yes, although there's probably some variety dog-to-dog too
dogs because they are cuter, cats are stinky shits
Isn't this an LC thread?>>133261
It's the other way around though
that makes no sense. there's no "cat smell" when you smell a cat. there's a distinct "dog smell" that dogs have on their hair and skin.
>>133261>cats are stinky shits
cats are almost always odourless and they keep themselves obsessively clean, while dogs literally eat shit and roll in it too.
Cats smell pleasant most of the time. Unless they just took a shit or sumthen.
fake and gay, cats always win, this fight was unfair cus theyre in different weight categories
Who the fuck is trying to skinwalk me? I'm pretty damn sure I made this exact post on LC's copy of this thread. I might be too schizo right now and it's possible that this is actually my own post and that I replied here before posting on LC and I forgot.
Actually I googled this thread's title to check, and found that on April 26 it was also made on /bant/ (yes, with the exact same gif as OP pic, EXACT SAME FILENAME too, you can see filenames here for a split second when the page loads). Did a moid make this thread on the 3 sites?
Actually scratch that. The gif wasn't just posted on 3 different imageboards, it was at least 5, all in the last month or so. The filename is 1650037806104.gif.http://web.archive.org/web/20220516234903/https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache%3ALud_yejQ0ngJ%3Ahttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.frenschan.com%2Fb%2Fres%2F1111.html

My theory is that >>131241 and >>131280 (now deleted but an hour ago you could see it was a soyjak post) is the OP and a scrote, or at best a really sad mega pickme. Probably uses soyjak.party too, judging by his deleted post and the fact that the original "whos better dogs or cats" thread on /ot/ was made shortly before the soyjak raid the other day, and deleted among the resulting spam threads. It wouldn't surprise me if it's the same retard who occasionally posts openly about being a soyjak.party user on here, the same person also appeared in the /ot/ dumbass shit thread defending the scrote spammers during the raid.
>>134180>same retard who occasionally posts openly about being a soyjak.party user on here
never seen an anon openly saying they use soyjak.party. have seen anons using soyjaks. you know those two are not the same thing, right?
I don't know if it's actually a man or not but you can tell it's the same person because they're always defending that shit site and posting the retarded soyjak "CC mascot" that has nothing to do with crystal.cafe and looks like 4chan's /wsr/-tan or Koishi Komeiji.
