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).

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).
