Cats are better than dogs.

First of all, cats need less room. Dogs need room to run around and play, cats on the other hand, could live with you in a studio apartment and never want more. Dogs need space to get active and if you put them in a small space they will get restless and not be the happy little puppy you want them to be.

Cats cost less to get and to feed, they don't NEED toys unless you want to give them toys. Dogs need things to chew and, not all, but a large majority chew through things like shoes and socks because they have nothing to play with.

Cats have instinct that tells them how to get rid of their waste. Dogs do too, just not to the same amount. Cats will find a nice, often sandyish, area at which to relieve themselves, and they will bury solid waste. Dogs leave their waste out in the open and don't think twice.

Some people say that dogs can be a replacement for a child they can never have or adopt, but cats can too.

Some breeds of dogs don't shed, and that is why a lot of people like dogs, but there are breeds of cats that don't shed either. I'm not talking about those hairless cats. There are plenty of cat breeds that have hair, but don't shed.

Dogs do need toys.
"Why dogs need toys: dogs need toys to provide mental stimulation, allow for appropriate chewing, and serve as important tools in behavior modification. ... If you don't want them to choose their own chew toys, such as your sofa, pillows, or toilet paper rolls, provide them with appropriate outlets." I do admit you can go get a stick from the backyard that you can go this for your dog, but if he/she starts chewing on it, woodchips often get everywhere.

Most cats do need toys, but you don't have to buy cats toys, you could make them from everyday items.
"Paper bags are good for pouncing, hiding and interactive play." Cats need some, but you don't HAVE to buy anything extra.

"Most importantly, we see that dogs prevent deaths, while cats cause them."

Dogs don't always save lives, I have been studying and, honestly, I have not been able to find a reliable source for the average of deaths cats cause a year. I will keep looking though.
"Dog bite losses exceed $1 billion per year. In 2015, 35 Americans were killed by dogs, down from 42 the prior year. Each year, more than 350,000 dog bite victims are seen in emergency rooms, and approximately 850,000 victims receive medical attention."

Many cats save lives, the link below is one of the many I've come across while researching this topic.

Dog poop also has many harmful elements.
"Dog poop is NOT good fertilizer. It's toxic to your lawn! The high nutrient concentration in dog poop will burn and discolor the grass, creating "hot spots"."

" Dog poop often contains roundworm larvae, which cause blindness. If a human ingests a roundworm larva, it can migrate through the body causing disease to the brain, lungs, kidneys, liver, heart or eyes. "

That is completely rude and unnecessary. Why don't we have a debate, huh? Start a debate that is possible for me to join and let's see who the dog really is here. Any topic. Since you guys have been focusing on why whites are the superior species, I'll go with that. C'mon, or are you too afraid?
