You can pick as many answers as apply and you can come back and revote if you change your mind or a dog or a cat will enter your life. :lol:

I would say I generally like dogs (more than tolerate but not quite up to love), and I have a service dog. Most dogs are just too high-energy for me to keep up with, I'm lucky that I got one who's more laid back. I do love cats and also have one of them. I'm planning on getting two when/if I get settled into a place of my own.

Cats are my favorite animals. I don't have any indoor cats now, just feral cats. I used to have both dogs and cats indoors, and loved them all, but cats will always be my favorites.

Dogs are okay, but cats are some of the nicest people I know!

I had a cat give me such a glare the other day. There are these birds in a big cage near where I am, and it was hanging around outside of it.

Like dogs, love cats. I instinctively get along with cats better than with most people. They make great companions for insomniacs too.

I wouldn't say I love dogs but I like em a lot so I voted for Love dogs in the poll but I don't have one. I had a dog when I was a kid & another in my teens & early 20s. I also spent some time with my parents dog. They got her like 6 years ago after I move out. My girlfriend had a cat when we moved in together but got another one a while after our cat died. I like cats OK so I voted for Tolerate cats in the poll. I prefer dogs cuz they're more trainable & predictable & I find cats inconsistent. Some people say they dislike dogs cuz they're too needy but the cat we have now is underfoot a lot & I know not all dogs are so I think it depends on the dog & the cat.

How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

There are four cats in the household if that tells you anything. If it was affordable, there would probably be more.

I like dogs but not as much as cats. I prefer other people's dogs. Visit with them awhile then go home xD
