I like both, but a dog would get me outside more.

Unfortunately, where I live I have none.

Prefer dogs, though I like both. My favourite dogs are working cocker spaniels, particularly black ones (see display picture).

Cats. I'm scared of dogs too. We have a book called 'All Cats have Asperger's Syndrome'. I think that's true. I also think it's true that all dogs are NT.
Nasty dogs are aggressive big creatures who could seriously injure humans. Nice dogs are either annoying shouty things like mine or run up to you and expect to be overly familiar. Give me an aloof cat who seems to be over thinking something any day.
Of course they're all NT in a way because they're neurotypical for their own species. Except our NT (human style) cat who's adorable but a right bully.
If I was a bird or a mouse or a rabbit I'd hate our cats. But even though they've scratched and bitten me, I don't fear them because it's just a little nip. And I'm way better at their body language than human body language which means I never get scratched or bitten by cats anymore.
They're also aspie that they hate eye contact. To use eye contact on a cat: blink slowly. I had a boss who I was convinced was on the spectrum who never used to use good eye contact and the same thing worked on her (of course I never told her this was a cat technique).

I'd love to get an Airedale Terrier!

In cats, a Maine Coon cat.


Would love to get puppy & kitten together so they'd love each other from the get-go!

I like cats, mostly because they aren’t as annoying as dogs. My cat is also somehow able to sense when I’m feeling bad, and she walks up to me and snuggles me, which my dog doesn’t do.

Cats are fascinating acrobatic creatures. I've owned some in my life. I have, however, been more of a dog lover all of my life. I seem to understand them better.

I don't mind dogs (obviously, since I have a service dog), but I do distinctly prefer cats. I've had my dog for almost two years, and I still can't read his body language very well - communicating and interacting with cats just feels much more natural to me than it does with dogs. Plus I'm not high-energy enough for most dogs, it's a good thing my dog is overall very relaxed so I can meet his exercise needs.

I like all animals like cats and dogs.

But I admit I prefer dogs slightly more.

And within dogs, I prefer Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, and similar dog breeds.

They still have their original Wolf-like appearance largely intact, compared to other more mutated dog breeds.

Bulldog, chihuahua, dachshund, etc, aren’t as appealing, because their appearance was too mutated by humans.

I have both cats and dogs — but I generally prefer my cats. (I am a bit uncertain though.)

One of my cats (younger one) was raised by humans since birth and does naughty things like eat human food and knock over drinks to drink them, while the other (older one) was born on the street and is not so naughty. Both cats are female, but I personally have a preference for the older one. The older cat will sometimes approach me when I'm doing homework or in my bedroom because she wants affection. The problem is, once she starts purring and bumping her head against things, she won't stop, and it sometimes gets in the way of doing homework.

As for my dogs, I like the (occasional) attention they give me (particularly from the older one), but they act like they're not potty-trained and have a tendency to go to the bathroom all over the place. In addition, the dogs can also be stinky.

I like both but i certainly have a preference to cats. One reason I suspect is that I was raised with cats. I'm an only child so the cats in the house were my siblings. My mother will tell a story of when she was pregnant with me, our female cat of the time would lay on her belly and purr. So even before my life started I was being soothed by kitties. I guess that made it little surprise when the first word I tried to say was "kitty" o.o

I live with both a dog and a cat and I significantly like cats more than dogs. Dogs are kinda annoying.
