I strongly believe that dogs are better than cats because dogs are way more fun, energetic and useful to have than cats are. Firstly, what's so fun about a cat. They do hardly anything all day but eat, sleep and go to random places, but dogs are way fun, energetic and they love to play. Secondly, Imagine hunting with a cat. They would be hopeless at it, but dogs are great at hunting and they are really useful at other stuff too.

My opponent argues solely using his opinion. However, is it an actual fact that dogs are better than cats? There are evolutionary advantages and disadvantages to both of them. Dogs are, sometimes, more "fun and energetic", yes, but cats have their advantages. Cats are great at fighting and defending themselves against snakes, while a dog would be easily bitten. A cat does not need to go outside to excrete feces. Other than your opinion, how are dogs better than cats? Cats are, actually, often better at hunting than dogs are. Let's compare their wild counterparts: a lion and a wolf. Which is going to hunt more efficiently? Most likely, the lion will be faster, more agile, and more deadly. Also, it depends on the breed of dog you are talking about. Not all dogs are for hunting.

Reasons for voting decision: Even if Pro has not forfeited, the BoP was on them, as long as William could successfully point out that this is not an opinionated debate he won.
