Now don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those nutzoid cat-haters. They're fine creatures I suppose, deserving of love and care just like any animal, but I fall squarely into the dog-lover camp.
To illustrate why I feel dogs are far superior to cats I offer the following points:
-Let's say you're home alone with your K9 or feline companion and a drugged-out maniac busts your front door down and proceeds to try and kill you. If you're a dog owner you can bet the dog will put his/her life on the line to protect you no matter what the odds. A cat on the other hand will run for its life.
-Dogs are trainable -- cats, not so much
-You can give your dog a bath -- cats, not so much
-Dogs are loyal and selfless -- cats are selfish, vain and indifferent
-Cats urinate and defecate in your house -- and I don't care how often you change the litter box, it's a major strike against them -- and your house stinks
-More people are allergic to cats than dogs
-Have you ever heard the phrases "police cat," "seeing-eye cat" or "bomb-sniffing cat"?
-Have you ever gone for a run, played Frisbee or hunted with a cat?
-Both dogs and cats have a natural instinct to hunt and kill, but dogs don't drag out the suffering by playing with their prey
-Who is man's best friend?
So now you know where I stand on cats, but there's no getting around the fact that cats have inspired many great songs. For this list I selected my 10 favorite cat songs. What are yours?
