The Great Debate – Which Is A Better Pet–Dog Or Cat? – Gunner
Every morning at 8:10am, Gwen and I face-off on a new topic, and we're always on opposite sides. The question is--who's side are YOU on? Could be about anything--so far it's been about things like Favorite Chips and whether or not they belong on a sandwich, Whether or not Pets belong in Bed with you at night, and so much more! Sound off in the comments section below and tell us YOUR opinion, and who you think presented their side of the argument the best.
Today--it's all about which is a better pet--a Dog or a Cat? And I think the answer to this isn't a simple one. Because I think it depends on the person. What your own lifestyle is or habits and what you do or do not have time to take care of outside of work, household chores and if you have kids--raisin them and all the demands that exist with that. There certainly are differences in what each choice needs as far as care and maintenance in order to thrive and whether or not you have the time, resources and finances to devote to those requirements defines the choice on which one is truly better suited for a particular individual or family. It shouldn't simply be based on whichever you personally LIKE better. When choosing a pet-it has to fit into your lifestyle or you'll just end up attempting to rehome it later.
Dogs need exercise regularly--walks, playtime, etc. They also need to go potty outside (unless you have a small breed you've trained to go on pee pads during the day while you're at work). So there's more time needed to devote to basic needs every day for our K9 buddies then a cat, per se. Cats just need to be fed, water, and a clean litter box. Done. It's YOUR turn--Where do YOU land on the subject? Drop us a note in the comments below and we shall see who wins this great debate!
