I would like to start off by stating my reasons why cats are better than dogs.

1. Cats are fluffier, and dont attack as much as dogs do.

2. I think we can all agree that kittens are cuter than puppies, even though they are both cute.

3. Dogs poop on lawns, but cats dig a hole not only for their craps, but for when they have to pee as well.

4. Cats are much smarter than dogs, dogs chase anything they can but cats stalk their pray.

Good luck

Con

counter-arguments:
1)there are breeds of dogs much fluffier than cats(chow-chow) and unlike cats they can be trained
2)thats not an argument thats an opinion
3)again dogs can be trained for that
4)dogs are more loyal and offer more practical help to the owner. have you ever heard of a cat for blind people? didnt think so

Have you ever heard of a cat killing a human being? Didnt think so.

33 people are killed by dogs each year, people killed by cats each is 0, dogs are a danger to society, cats are a blessing.

I've trained my cat to kill exactly 5 critters every month and bring them to my doorstep which he always does, I don't want a dog bringing a kid to my doorstep.

Dogs can be vicious, cats, not so much

Cats can roam free, otherwise knows as off-collar animals.

Dogs have to be on a leash in places like parks or any public place.

I await my opponents arguments.

Con

the only reason a dog would ever attack a human is if it is trained to do so or if it, or its puppies are in danger. cats dont try to kill people solely because they can't.

Explain the training process.

They can roam free because they are superconfident in their abilities(which quite often dissapoint them) while dogs feel dependant(sorry if i spelt it wrong) to their master.

again cats dont get agressive to humans so much because they cant, not because they dont want to.

they have to be on leash to contain them, since dogs are very playful animals.

sorry for the delay, i had a job

What my opponent has failed to do is explain why dogs are better than cats, even though I have explained in full why cats are much better than dogs. I have nothing to argue against if he won't explain his opinion on the topic, I await his rebuttals on why dogs are better than cats.

I countered your arguments but for convenience's sake i will provide some of my own
1)dogs may lack a cat's intelligence but what they lack in intelligence thei make up for in loyalty, usefulness(drug dogs, dogs for blind people, dogs for people suffering from PTSD) and playfulness
2)when it comes to cooperation with humans dogs are extremely more intelligent than cats.
3)even stray dogs inherently love humans. the only other emotion a stray dog will ever show to a human(provided that it is not rabid) is fear and only if the dog was abused in the past

4)lastly dogs will actually give a damn about you unlike cats who only care about you feeding them or not . raising a dog is like raising a baby while raising a cat is like raising a dictator

pro failed to specify what type of cat. domestic cats no, lions/tigers et c kill a crap ton more than wolves. and lets think about it, wolves are so much cooler than any tiger. and puppies i find cuter, but for con, cats can het aggresive to humans, they scratch when they are stray/cornered, but again, even domestic cats can kill people, but it is more required on circumstances than general, i agree that dogs can be more vicious, but that could also be safer, a dog will defend its master till its death, cats only save their master from a fire once or twice a year, dogs are renown for their loyalty, i have a cat, prefer dogs.

Reasons for voting decision: Both the instigator and contender only provided opinions and, mostly, speculation. For example, generally, dogs are known to be more loyal. However, this is just a cliche and is not really backed up by sources.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct was good on both sides, so that's tied. Con made some grammar mistakes, so s&g goes to pro. Many of pro's points were opinion, and for some he did not really explain why they make cats better. Arguments go to con. Sources are tied because no one gave any.
