I grew up in a cat-hating family. We always had dogs, ferrets, rabbits, and birds. I thought I hated cats too. When I was 20 my ex surprised me with a tiny tiny kitten. I have been a staunch cat-lover ever since.
Dogs,definitly dogs.I find dogs much more loyal and they love you no matter what.
There is even a joke:
Lock your dog and your wife in the trunk for an hour and after you unlock them see who is happy to see you!::
I put cats but I like both, some dogs are great, it depends on the individual animal. I am afraid of aggresive dogs. I find them very unpredictable and dangerous. Some people can be okay with them but I am not a person who knows how to deal with them.
Also I found if the owner is crazy or weird, their dog is as well.
Gatos all the way. I grew up with them too. Have never had a pet dog and I don't think I would like one, though I like most animals. In the past I have had pet rabbits, guinea pigs, turtles and birds. Right now I have three cats, but they are living at home with my parents; I want to get a little rodent. I am thinking gerbil or fancy rat. A dog would be cool though...'cause walking those things, you get to meet other people. My bf really wants one. Maybe one day!
