Dogs are better than cats.
Debate Rounds (3)
Now onto my first point. You spend $1,500-3,000 USD per year on a dog. It varies depending on what kind of dog. On average it costs 500 USD a year to keep a cat. A dog can live up to 18 years and that's $27,000- $54,000 spent on your dog in a lifetime. What could you be pending that money on? Food? Clothes? Rent? Mortgage?
Onto my other main point. Do you know how many times a day you need to walk your dog? Do cats need walking? Do cats need to go outside SUPERVISED? Dogs need to be walked 2 times a day. Who wants to do that? Would you rather sit and watch tv or cook or even go out somewhere or walk your dog. I think you would pick the first option. Most people are too lazy to walk, feed and take their dog outside . Dogs are a hassle to have. They howl in the middle of the night and feel the need to let their waste out onto your lovely carpet. They also smell and leave this distinct odour around your house. They shed fur which sticks to your carpet and furniture. They are obnoxious when your trying to relax and like a small child. Therefore cats are better than dogs.
Also your saying that dog's fur sheds and leaves hair everywhere, well cats are just the same, but dogs hair is less hazardous to our health because the cat's hair sticks in the air causing more trouble breathing while dogs just stick to furniture and can be cleaned up easily. Yes, they stink, but not if you keep them clean. Another thing you're saying they are not selfish, but when have you seen a cat risk their lives for a person or another animal?? hardly ever right?? Well dogs have been reported to have saved a person's life or any animal in fact that they are attached to. To prove my point that they are protective I'm going to state that dogs are trained animals of any police department and have been in war helping man and received medals for it. Where have you heard that cats are used for protection?? I sure haven't.
Dogs and cats have pretty much the same fur but no, dogs fur sheds more and sticks more. I know by experience as I have a dog and a cat. After going away from the dog I have a whole lot of fur stuck to my clothing but after I come out of patting a cat I have little to no fur on me. You don`t have trouble breathing because there is cat fur in the air. This is very false and I have no idea where you came up with that idea. I would have you to know there are alot of stories where cats have saved lives so they are as good as dogs. Check out this link which has a classic story of a cat that saved its owners life. http://pussingtonpost.com...
Dogs are used to aid policemen because they have a keen sense of smell and they are big and buff. There is no other reason. Its not because they are better its because they can sniff things out. Now onto my second point.
Cats are smart, funny, cute and polite. Dogs are big, obnoxious, loud, hyperactive and smelly, Which one would you prefer? Cats can go outside to do their business dogs,well, just can`t. Cats have the best personality's, manners and smell. Therefore the moot shall fall.
