The Debate 'Dogs VS. Cats' Is A Serious One, So Let's Settle This Thing Once And For All
Emily Henrichs

The great debate about dogs vs. cats is widely known. Most people are strong on one side. Being a dog person, I can never see why anyone would ever like cats more. In my opinion, cats are the spawn of Satan. Despite my feelings, I had to figure out how other people felt I'm still strong on the "dogs are better" side, but I guess I can respect the fans of cats.

Actually, I don't think I can.

I took the liberty of asking some friends how they feel. Here's what they had to say.

*Some people wanted to stay anonymous, so I will respect that.*

"Name one cat that has ever helped a blind person...dogs are the real heroes" - Abbie 

Dogs are heroes with four legs.

"I like cats because they do things on their terms. It's hard to force a cat to do something." - Leah

I respect that.

"Cats can kiss my a**. Dogs are better because they will play with you and they're just so f*ckin cute." - Anonymous

I feel the same way.

"Dogs are more personable, they also like to cuddle/spend time with you." - Noelle

Yes! Thank you!!

"I like cats because all they do is eat & sleep, and I relate to them on a personal level." - Courtney

So maybe you relate to cats, but you can also relate to dogs.

"Dogs are better. It's simple." - Anonymous

You can't deny it, haters.

"I love my cat because it cuddles and catches mice and doesn't annoy me like my dog does." - Amanda

Alright, alright, alright. I get it. Cats love mice and if you live in the country it helps. I'll give you this one.

"Well, you say your dog is your soulmate..." - Anonymous

What else needs to be said here?

"Dogs, because they have hearts. Cats are just black holes of hate." - Lily

I can't disagree with Lily. And that is not because she edits my articles. It's because she's right.

 "Let's be honest here. Cats are great and all, but can you really compare them to the greatness of a dog who loves you no matter what?" - Sam

Dogs jump on you when you come home. Their tail wags like crazy. They LOVE you no matter how long you've been gone.

 "I'm just going to say it. Dogs are better. End of story. Deal with it." - Me

I have always loved dogs and always hated cats. I've only had great experiences with dogs and horrible experiences with cats. And you cannot make me believe your cat is the best cat ever. It is not an angel. It is Satan. I'm not sorry.

We may never be able to settle the whole dogs vs. cats debate. I am a hardcore dog lover, but I will respect the people out there who love cats...maybe.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

I never considered myself a cat person, but Chess immediately stole my heart.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.
