I'm Sorry But, Dogs Are Better Than Cats

If you're a dog person you will agree.

I'm Sorry But, Dogs Are Better Than Cats

Here’s the thing: I love all animals. No, really. At any given moment I am probably looking at animal videos on Facebook and whether it’s a mom raccoon helping her baby ‘coons over a fence or a donkey jumping around I gush every time. Animals are better than humans and there’s nothing you can say to make me believe otherwise. But, with all that said, what I am here to prove to you today is that dogs are better than cats.

They are always excited AF to see you when you get home. No matter what.

Cats are moody creatures. No cat listens closely to the sound of the car door shutting and barks (excitingly!) at the garage opening. Nope, not one. Dogs will do that and even great any guests. Nothing says ‘welcome to my home’ like a big kiss from a dog!

They encourage you to get outside and be active.

You have to walk a dog, while cats can be left alone for a few days without any supervision. A cat doesn’t need you in order to do their dirty business and it will eat throughout the day as it pleases. Your dog NEEDS you to take him/her outside to do his/her thang. Don’t you want to be needed?

They want to cuddle all the time and will take up more room on your bed than necessary.

Again, cats are moody creatures. Sometimes they want you to pet them, but a lot of the time they are independent and want nothing to do with being touched. Dogs love the attention, on the other hand. They just want to be loved by you and cuddled all day long! You will never sleep alone again, who doesn’t want that?

They learn their own name and can even learn cool tricks.

I am being honest here, and no I am no scientist, BUT I am unsure if your cat will ever understand what you have named him/her. A dog on the other hand, listens when you say his/her name AND can learn commands! Sit, paw, roll over, the possibilities are truly endless here, people.

Your dog will LITERALLY follow you everywhere.

You will never have privacy in the bathroom again and will constantly have an animal shadow. Anything you do, your dog will do with you. Cats, as I’ve stated before, are independent and will disappear for hours on end throughout the day. Whether they are staring at a wall or out the window, they are entertained so easily on their own that they don’t need to follow you and hang out with you all day. How rude.

So there you have it -- just a few of the reasons why dogs are infinitely better than cats. Sure, cats provide us with a lot of hilarious videos on Facebook and are quiet, easy animals to own BUT no one will love you like a dog loves you. End of story.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
