I Think Dogs Are Better Than Cats Because Dogs Show Their Love By *Kissing* The Owner Of The Dog To Show That They Love Them. Dogs are also better because they follow almost every order and cats just ignore commands.Dogs may drool and cats don't but we still love them!Cats are sometimes intelligent and dogs are intelligent to so this sentence is a T.I.E. Cats may use the restroom outside by themselves but dogs have to be walked BUT we like walking them, we get our morning exersize so we don't become fat :3.Cats don't like to play ball or Frisbee they just sleep eat or poo and pee.Don't mention how annoying that meow is even though you just gave them food or a treat!*MEOW MEOW MEOW!*

Besides your wonderfully stupid grammar and camel case, cats are in every way, shape and form better than dogs, trust me, I own both. For starters, while dogs are chewing on absolutely everything in the house, and pissing everywhere, cats are just walking around being wonderfully elegant and majestic. Cats have been proven to be good for psychotherapy and just calming people down in general. Sure, cats don't really like having Frisbees thrown at them, they can not even be compared to dogs because they are completely different in every way, shape and form.

There are cat people and there are dog people. I don't generally like to lump myself in with one group (I grew up with three cats), but I can recognize the vast benefits of owning a dog over a litter-trained furball.
A pilot study of 95 people found that dog owners laughed significantly more frequently than cat owners. Cats might even be a drag even participants without pets reported laughing more than those who just owned cats.Pet dogs can act as catalysts for human social interactions, and it has been suggested this may enhance feelings of well-being," according to one study, which found that strolling around with a dog led to more interactions, especially with strangers, than when walking aloneDogs are known for their discerning noses, which can be used to sniff out bombs, find missing persons, or track down criminals. Basically, dogs are four-legged crime fighters.So-called "seizure-alert dogs" have the innate ability to detect if someone is about to have a seizure. The dog will warn the victim using "attention-getting behaviors such as whining, pawing, or anxious barking" anywhere from "15 to 12 hours before the attack," according to National Geographic. The dogs can even be trained to hit a button on the phone that calls 911. Try getting your cat to use speed dial... now thats just stupid. Clearly dogs are better

I love cats. I own 8 of them and I've always enjoyed their presence in my household. I also had 4 Dogs... I didn't like the huge amount of care it took to take care of them. I think people have a bias against cats because they scratch people and can be less affectionate. But they are not robots, I give my cats attention and they give me affection back. Don't be biased towards dogs because they are loyal, because owning a pet that is more intelligent and can possible be quite rational towards outside behavior is just better (at least for me it is). PLEASE VOTE FAIRLY!

Reasons for voting decision: cons arguments were convincing, but both sides forfeited. Con forfeited first, so pro gets conduct. I do think pro's arguments were vague and didn't counter cons.
