Autumn Beaulieu 11/12/14 Eric Pelkey ENG 111 A Better Pet Would you rather have a cat or dog? If I were you, I would prefer cats because cats are better than dogs. Training a dog which takes time is hard work on the other hand put a litter box in front of a cat and boom there she goes and training the cat is done. Either way from my point of view, I would want a cat. I have had both a cat and dog in the past.
The first reason is that the cats don’t bark. Even the loudest meow from the cat is much better than the quietest bark of a dog, which is very much sufficient to keep one awake all night long. Another big reason is that cats can clean themselves and on the other hand the dogs need to have the owner to give them a bath, which is at times a pain to do and more time consuming. Moreover, if cats get lost they are amazingly good at finding their way home while the dogs will not return when lost. Dogs are more demanding than cats.
Also, cats are not able to irritate your neighbors in the loudness sense, because they generally do not make many powerful sounds. If your pet does not annoy people nearby, you do not get any rude phone calls telling you to “get your dog to shut up,” and as a result, you are much happier and at better terms with your neighbors. Secondly, cats do not require walking - they know how to exercise themselves in the house, and the majority of them will come back if you let them outside. If you don’t have to take your pet for a walk, it saves you a lot of time when you could be doing something much more worthwhile. Also, when you don’t have a dog that needs to get outside, you aren’t required to pick up the waste they deposit when they relieve themselves in the middle of the sidewalk.
Aloofness, however, is not something that I think is common in cats, some breeds are more typically aloof but, as a whole, I find cats to be very personable. Most cats like to cuddle close to their human companions. Cats become easily attached to their humans and become very loyal to them, this adds to their aloof character when it comes to strangers. Cats, despite being loyal to their owner, are very independent by nature. This adds to their purported aloofness.
8. Why does Marty tell Judd that his dog's name is Shiloh? (He's angry at the way Judd treats his dogs; he wants Judd to know that he is looking out for the beagle.) LITERARY ELEMENTS 9. Using dialect: Why does the author use words such as “lookin'” instead of “looking” when the characters speak?
Irelandused to be so peaceful. That was before the English took over now timesare harder. I am a black irish dog I like to help the cats by catching small animals, like rabbits or rats. I get less and less food every day because the cats are having trouble paying the rent so they sell food. I hope every things going to be okay.
I then moved on to search for the dye; this was found by the side of the tub where I normally dye Easter eggs due to the calm environment it provides. With my testing at a dead end and the crayons still missing I decided to turn to other people for more ideas; the first step was to Google search this happening. Unfortunately no cases of purple vomit were found in all of Google so I turned to ask my friends if their pets had ever done anything similar. One of my friends suggested taking my cat and the vomit I had saved to the vet who would be able to give me further information. After extensive testing, the veterinarian did in fact discover a Crayola crayon wrapper in the purple
This type of infantile behaviour is common between cats and their owners. This is because the owners provide the cats with food and comfort in a maternal way Buring feaces - The behaviour of cats burying their own faeces is often positively accepted by owners, as it keeps their litter trays tidy, and it is negatively complained about by gardeners, as they can unknowingly uncover it with their hands. It is thought that cats do this for hygienic reasons, although in truth, it is actually to dampen down their odour. It is actually only less confident, fearful cats who will do this. Dominant, un-neutered male cats will do the opposite, by placing their faeces on a little mound, so the odour can have maximum effect.
In this study cats were placed on plant pots surrounded by water. The cats could balance on the pots in stages 1-4 of NREM sleep, however, when the cats entered REM sleep, the muscles would relax and they would fall into the water and wake up. This means the REM sleep was deprived in the cats meaning that the cats died after 35 days. This Supports Horne’s theory because he believed that REM sleep was
