Subject: BS: Cat people vs dog people
From: GUEST,Village idiot of the day

There is a difference in personalities and temperments, I've observed. But it is difficult to put into words.

Cat people are more...

Dog people are more...

Puzzle and ponder, then wonder aloud with others about this.

Deteriorating minds want to know.

This got to be a lot more ambiguous when my brother adopted a decidedly dog-like cat and we adopted an in-some-respects cat-like dog. Actually, the two of them are disturbingly similar. I guess that means we're still catless.

I like cats. I don't find them hard to understand at all, but maybe that's because they usually like me and let their guard down pretty quickly. I like dogs, too, but they're demanding. Cats can also be demanding, but they seem to be capable of entertaining themselves at least part of the time instead of needing to include you in absolutely everything (this is why I will never own a Labrador--I don't want a dog that friendly).

Everyone we know either has pets who run their house, too, or doesn't get it and will never be more than a casual acquaintance.

I still maintain that pets are less disgusting than children, and lots of people seem to let their kids run the show, for better or for worse.

Immobilse your cat!
Try this:-
Very, very carefully!

Roll up a tea towel (or simillar)
Place it around your cats tummy as far back towards the tail as you can, tie a knot in it (towel that is not cat) a half hitch will do.
ENSURE THAT YOU LEAVE ENOUGH CLEARANCE SO THAT YOUR HAND WILL PASS BETWEEN THE TOWEL & THE CAT, SO IT IS NOT REALLY TOUCHING MOST OF MOGGY AND OBSERVE!
If all goes to plan, mog will walk a few paces & then slowly fall over!
Please report finding, our 2 lean mean eating machines have been immobilsed this way even with food in a dish a mere metre away.

Our dog is trained, house broken, loves to please and we always take a plastic bag when walking him in case he fouls the footpath.
Pet owners are the problem. When a dog howls all day it is because its owner didn't train it, and it suffers from separation anxiety. Too many people don't have the brains to raise children, let alone pets.

Pets are less disgusting than children? Hmmmm...I'm not sure I agree with that...kids can be messy and gross sometimes but I can't say that I've ever seen one eat their own poop or raid the litter box anytime they get the chance (Kitty Candy Factory for dogs). EW!

We have lots of cats and dogs...each of them have their own personalities and needs. Some of the dogs are snuggle bunnies, some of the cats would rather play for hours than to be held for 3 minutes. What kind of person does that make me? Who knows....one who loves her 4-legged babies and wouldn't give up any of them without a fight.

Belle The Beagle A Life Saver

OCOEE, FLA---She's three years old, has big floppy ears , a wet nose and only weighs 17 pounds.

But she saved the life of her best friend.

Belle the Beagle was honored in Washington Monday, the first canine recipient to win the VITA Wireless Samaritan Award which is given to someone who used a cell phone to save a life, prevent a crime or help in an emergency.

Belle saved the life of her owner, Kevin Weaver, 34, after he went into a diabetic seizure and collapsed with dangerously low blood sugar. Having been trained as a service dog, she knew exactly what to do. She found his cell phone and bit the number 9 on the keypad which had been programmed to dial 911 to summon emergency medical services.

Although all the dispatchers heard was barking, they sent an ambulance. Using her sense of smell, Belle had sensed a change in Weaver's blood sugar. She has undergone nine months of training as a diabetic-alert dog. 06-19-06

Hmmm.

I have cats, dogs, and children. All of them generally ignore me unless I have food.

They all are messy and require cleaning up after. All are trainable, after a fashion. The dogs probably do me the most good these days, because we walk about 45 minutes each morning. It keeps them in a mellow state of mind and they don't bark all day--though they do bark when there is something around to bark at. It isn't mindless. They're outside 24/7, and have lots of shade and water on these hot days.

The cats lounge around the house, as do the kids. The indoor critters (kids and cats) seem to sleep an awful lot. At least the kids wash the dishes.

Dog owners are disgusting if they don't clean up their dogs mess when they take them for walkies.

Dog mess in a public place, sure.

But how much more disgusting are cat owners who let their animals run wild all over the neighbourhood, in the sure and certain knowledge that they'll crap in their neighbours' private gardens and uproot their neighbours' plants? Our immediate area has at least half-a-dozen people with cats. Only one has the good sense to keep it in her flat and backyard - the rest let them run wild. The reason: "It's cruel to keep it cooped up inside." Well how much more cruel is it to inflict that animal's filth on the rest of the neighbourhood?

As far as I'm concerned, if you've got a cat, you either need a good acre of garden or a house completely surrounded by woods or farmland. If you don't have either of those, your cat should only be outside your house when you are and should never leave your property. If your cat can't tolerate that, you shouldn't own the cat.

In other words, it's a matter of responsibility. Cat owners seem to have cats because they think it relieves them of the responsibility of caring for it - it'll entertain itself and crap outside without needing your assistance. Dog owners take on their pets in the knowledge that they'll have to put in some active work with it.

Got a cat and he's good as cats go but he hasn't been much of a mouser lately, and since the SPCA frown on using him for musky bait, and the girls seem to like him, I tolerate him around the house.

Rosie The Wonder Dog and Cosmo The Other Dog are much more fun, better company, guard the place, and are great for starting conversations with strangers. They also provide lots of nutrients for the garden.

People with pets generally love them. Cats, dogs, horses, etc. The cat/dog debate will continue after we are all food for worms.

People who have a sense of compassion can relate to animals. Years back I trapped a mouse in a live trap. I was away for a bit and came back to find it really close to death because it had had no water for days. I gave it water immediately and the transformation was remarkable. It perked up. I 'nursed' it for about a half hour, and when it was back to its feet again and walking under its own steam, I drove it about five miles from where I lived and let it go in a field. That mkes little sense I know. But then much about humans and life don't make a helluvalotta sense.

I now have 3 little darlings and they are never EVER allowed outside the safety of my apartment. They crap in the same room I do, only in a convenient box that I change a couple of times a week. I am most definitely a "cat person" and find them to be extremely smart creatures. That is not to say I don't enjoy the canine members of our family, I just think of them as I do the children...I'd rather visit and go home than have one of my own.

Three cats and you clean the box a couple of times a week? Whew! I scoop our two cat boxes daily and we have only two cats. If I don't keep them clean that often one of the cats gets it into his head to pee elsewhere. Doesn't happen often, but it's insidious when it happens.

The dog poop goes into a whole dug in the compost heap. It's amazing how much they can generate, in comparison to how much food I feed them every morning. They augment their diet with lots of bugs and grass. (I've seen them bouncing around the lawn in the evening catching June bugs after a recent rain).

I can enjoy a dog OR a cat...The real practical side is that cats require less detailed looking after.

When we had cats, we 'could' put out extra dry food & water, a spare litter box, and go away for a couple days. (any longer and we'd at least have someone stop in) with a dog, you gotta have 'em boarded, sat with...etc.

Becca,

I thought that must be what you were getting at. We use the scoopable litter, but that only works if you scoop every day because otherwise the lumps dry out again and mix with the rest. Depending on the weather sometimes you have to scoop more often. My one cat doesn't stray very often, and he's getting old, so there could be hormone issues that come into play when he goofs.

CH, I tried that wheat stuff but got rid of it pretty quickly--it is also supposed to be scoopable, but if you have it around for very long you find a house full of weevils. No thanks!

This time of year it doesn't hurt to keep the flour in the fridge if you're not going to use it very fast. It's hot enough long enough that we get to the point where we can comfortably shower with the water temperature that comes out of the cold water tap. I could probably turn off the hot water heater. (I lived in Arizona for a couple of years, where when it gets really hot you turn off the hot water tank and use that as your source of cool water to mix with the hot water coming in the cold tap so you can stand the shower temperature).

Yeah, the temperature accelerates hatching the weevil eggs that are in all ground grain, no matter whether it turns up in Canada or Texas. And who knows how long the store had had this sack of litter before I bought it, since I don't think it came with a shelf date.

Nope, they don't, Clinton. They have been trained to know when all stops out is permissable and when it is not. However, they are one of the very few breeds that have been bred specificly to kill. And unlike cats, they don't intentionally drag it out as entertainment.

If I really went as far as set them on a cat, there would be no cat vet bills.....just the cost of burial. Keep your own wantonly cruel, malicious, purring predator in your own yard and you'll have no problems with me.

I would prefer the dogs not get sidetracked anyways, so they can continue to concentrate on other vermin instead. I would not want them to think that the really big native cats around here were fair game also, that would end very differently.

Far too many people believe themselves qualified to own a dog - there is nothing more tragic than the sight of a frustrated Border Collie which spends its life sticking its head through the cat flap to bark at passers by and take chunks out of the postman - at least cats don't turn psychotic through lack of attention and excercise - although some appear to be born that way.

I can't seem to come up with a direct link to the article, though it is probably available through a magazine collection somewhere.

He is adamant that people need to treat dogs like they are dogs, it is much better for the dog. Some of his clients on the program clearly have a lot of emotional baggage that Millan can't touch--all he can do is help them relate to their animals better. (One hopes that behind the scenes he has a referral network in place and can point some of these folks to good counselors.)

It's the ligament in the knee, Stilly. In Meggie's case, we were fortunate that the ligament had not actually broken yet, just frayed and thinned and stretched. When the ligament snaps it can mean that the patella, the kneecap, also has to be attached in place, which is not only a longer surgery and longer recuperation and more expensive but more painful.

Incidentally, the replacement 'ligament' is actually fishing line! In little dogs like mine rather than imbedding the line they hook the line over the bone and wait for scar tissue and muscle to help hold it. Until then, the line is vulnerable to re-breaking. Eventually it will become stronger than the congenital one.

Speaking of expense, I had been warned that the surgery would run about $2000. and if the vet found that there were other repairs to be made and if there was a lot of debris in there that had to be cleaned up the cost could go as high as $2500.

Because Meggie's ligament was still intact- and that was all that was wrong - it ended up costing $1488.75. I wouldn't have paid $10,000 but I paid this amount happily and felt myself fortunate for it.

Meggie is less than 5 years old which made me hesitate to take her in the first place. I've been adopting older animals that have small chance of being adopted. However, I knew when I got her that she had medical issues - in addition to her ACL - and was functionally unadoptable. I haven't regretted it. She's a great little dog.

There's a dance in this old dame of a thread yet,
and that of course
is stolen from Don Marquis' Archy and Mehitabel.
In which, for those lucky few new to Don Marquis,
Archy is a typewriter-fluent cockroach
and Mehitabel is a lady cat.

"I was Cleopatra once," she said.

If there were any dogs in that humorous work,
I have managed to forget them.

We were invited round to our neighbours' house up the road two evening ago, and sat in their garden drinking orange juice. Their two dogs (Logie, border collie and Molly, cocker spaniel) had things called Conks. They're a hollow rubber toy which you fill with peanut butter and dog biscuits. The idea is the dogs bash them around and try to squeeze out the treats.
They were hilarious as they got madder and madder, dashing round the garden and bursting out from the middle of a thick privet hedge, each with a Conk in their teeth.
Very funny and friendly dogs, and in perfect health.

In the U. S. those products are called "Kongs."

I remember you telling us about Logie and Molly!
Sounds like they are happy and healthy, which is great news.

Ah, I've just Googled 'Kong' and it's exactly that keberoxu! I must have misheard Ann (the neighbour) when she explained what they were.

Steve, the husband, brought out a lovely framed photo of their old border collie who had died a few years ago. He had tears in his eyes and I could see he still grieved for his old dog.

Both Logie and Molly are taken to training classes and are very obedient and a pleasure to be around (and very, very funny!)

I love both cats and dogs. But not being too spry nowadays, I don't think I could cope with walking a dog and it wouldn't be fair.

Husband was wary at first of any dog (rabies in Africa!) but soon saw what lovely pets they make, and now he loves Harry, Marnie, Molly, Logie and Buddy (all the dogs which get walked past our house) and gives each one a cuddle and gets licked.

I actually like all animals (except spiders) If one has the patience and a bit of knowledge, one can soon make a friend of almost any species (except a spider)

We have a cat called Ollie. A few years ago our neighbours acquired a yappy inferior life form and called him Ollie as well. Our Ollie knew exactly what "Ollie!" meant - "bowl full of food". Ollie the dog then had to learn it meant "time to fight stripy orange thing for dinner".

The family across the road have been looking after the uncle's rottweiler while he's away on holiday. Blooming great muscular thing with a deep, fierce bark. (the dog, not the uncle)

Typical village, (everyone gossips about everyone else) their next-door neighbour, who knows a lot about dogs, told me things were getting a bit dodgy, as the two children were teasing it and chucking things at it. She said it would 'go for them' one day, which I thought was more than likely.

Yesterday, the uncle returned and collected his dog. Phew!

Forgot to add, we have all sorts of animals around in this village. The other night I looked out and saw a muntjac deer happily munching in our flowerbed in the front garden.

And another time, at about 2am a horse got out of its field at the riding school up the road and was clip-clopping up and down the street having a rare old time, until Ruth-across-the-road came out in her dressing gown with a bit of rope and tied it to her gate post, then phoned the owner.

Not only that, but last Spring, a few beef cattle got out of their field down near the river and spent the night wandering about being pursued by a very exhausted farmer and several neighbours.

It's all 'go' here!

I don't consider dogs inferior life forms, but I do prefer cats. That's mostly because dogs beg for my attention or loudly demand it, while the cats calmly go about their business, which may well include absorbing all the attention in the room.

Feline self-possession is a wonderful thing.

Ollie gets that from his mother, Marblecake, who gave birth to him on our bed (Ollie has spent of his life ever since trying not to go more than a paw's reach of the spot where he first saw daylight). We got Marblecake as a 12-week-old kitten from a house in Glasgow where she was terrorizing the family dog. When I arrived with my cat basket to collect her, she was bouncing all round the house and there was a white Labrador huddled against the fence at the bottom of the garden.

We have three dogs, and I think it's wonderful when we all take over the living room and take a nap. What could be better?

We had a white cat who vomited, pooped, and shed white hair over everything. He died last year, and life has been easier since then. He was a prenuptial cat, even though he came after Christina and I got engaged. If I wanted marriage, I had to take the cat, too. We've had as many as four cats at a time, but I think this white one with its digestive and shedding problems, made Christina kick the cat habit.

I wouldn't mind have a cat living in the garage again, to take care of rodents. Trouble is, our garage cat also ate birds, lots of them.

Marblecake is basically tabby but has tortie-like splotches of colour under the stripes. I thought she might end up more tortie-ish than she did, so the name doesn't describe her all that well now.

I had another cat once called Muriel because she was grey. You have to have been in Scotland in the 90s to get it.

Explanation.

Joe, I can just see you on the sofa surrounded by snoring dogs.

When we watch TV, Himself and I settle on the Lay-Zed-Boy settee in the (chilly) basement under an old fleece blanket, and the cats very soon join us. Within about ten minutes of flipping on the gogglebox, all four of us are staring at the screen. I'm not sure what the cats are seeing, however.

Actually that proposed match between
Senoufou with the cats
and
olddude with the dogs
needs to be updated.

Senoufou now has two resident cats
and then there is the neighborhood cat who,
as she described on a different thread,
jumped INTO the bedroom window the other night.

Olddude, as described on another thread,
had to say goodbye to the Lab whom he rescued as an abandoned newborn.
Survived by the wiener dogs and the grieving humans.

In DNA research actual cat DNA has been found in the human genome.
We have not yet found dog DNA traces in our genome.
Maybe we have not looked hard enough.
