Dogs and cats are very different animals and they have different attitudes, needs, and habits. Understanding these differences can help in the process of choosing between them. It is inevitable to agree that cats make better pets than dogs. They are typically more convenient than a dog. The first reason is that the cats don’t bark.

Their diets vary with the whims of humans, however, and can be supplemented by the cat's own hunting successes. Feral cats are the "wild" offspring of domestic cats and are primarily the result of pet owners' abandonment or failure to spay and neuter their animals, allowing them to breed uncontrolled. Feral cat "colonies" can be found behind shopping areas or businesses, in alleys, parks, abandoned buildings, and rural areas. They are elusive and do not trust humans. Many people assume
Dogs are better companions than people because people feel bad for others when dogs just provide comfort and loyalty. They are amazing listeners as well because people aren't always listening when you need them to but canines will never interrupt you. Canines are so versatile, they also make excellent service dogs but their main role is as excellent companions who are in fact good for people. Forming a bond between a human and a canine is not easy. It is necessary for dog owners or handlers to show love and affection for the dog such as feeding it, walking it, playing with it until a bond forms.
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.
The use of dogs in the opening chapter of the novel, further suggests that dogs will be important figures in the novel. Linking in to Heathcliff’s “savage” qualities in the novel (which are hugely linked to dogs) is his treatment of Isabella Linton’s springer, Fanny. Heathcliff uses a handkerchief to hang the dog by his neck on a bridle hook. The condition, in which Nelly finds Isabella’s dog, is a metaphor for Isabella’s situation in her relationship with Heathcliff; her physical maladies represent the restrictive nature that her marriage with Heathcliff will possess, like the dog who’s suffering results from the hanging. Aside from the suffering, the dog’s physical restrictions are also a representation of the new boundaries that Heathcliff presents to her life.
Americans are spending too much money on their pets. This proves that people care more for their pets than helping people get out of poverty. People treat their pets like if their children and will do whatever they could to see their pets healthy or alive. Pets are just there to keep company to a person who’s lonely. They also help people that are sick or are having emotional problems, and of course they could also be your pet.
Simple signs like wagging tails and other body language. A few signs are the tail wag means happy and when the fur sticks up on the back of their neck they are suspicious. A whimper means sad or hurt, a growl means angry, and if they are scared they will just sit down by their owners. Labs are available in many different places. You can buy a dog from a reliable breeder and the advantages to that are you know the dogs background and know it is usually healthy.
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.
I do not just possess my pets; I am their companions as they are mine. People who have pets as a working animal rather than a companion may not feel the same connectedness to their animal as I do. They may consider themselves to be owners rather than guardians. But even if an animal is used solely as a utility tool, the owner should still be forced to provide the animal with the maximum care. Weather the animal’s purpose is companionship or work, it still deserves to be treated in the most humane way possible.
