Cats are not better then dogs because cats may descendants of tigers but they are small and can not do much to hurt someone where as a Dog has sharp teeth is big and strong and are descendants of wolfs and they are still fierce and are better protectors of people.

Yes the cats family members are ferocious but that does not mean that the cat is where as dogs can fight and bite other animal and it is very close to a wolf and as some of the similar characteristics and they are pretty much the same

I would like to build up my case now by saying that dogs have the ability to do tricks, learn and protect their owners like a mother would do with there young i mean really its the same thing but dogs are not a mean as their cousins the wolfs and if they were no one would what them but every one loves dogs not so much cats.

As my last argument suggest, cats are the descendants of larger more aggressive animals.
Definitions
Cat:
Cat (noun)
a small domesticated mammal that has soft fur, sharp claws, pointed ears, and, usually, a long furry tail, and makes characteristic purring or meowing sounds. Cats are widely kept as pets or to catch mice. Latin name: Felis catus

Feline:
fe•line (adjective)
an animal belonging to the cat family. Domestic cats, lions, and tigers are felines. Family: Felidae
the average house cat is not what we are talking about , we are talking about large cats like the tigers and lions. Tigers and Lions have teeth such as canine. The canine teeth are large, reaching exceptional size in the extinct saber- tooth species. The upper third premolar and lower molar are adapted as carnassials teeth, suited to tearing and cutting flesh.
The jaws of felids can only move vertically. This prevents them from being able to chew, but makes it easier for their powerful masseter jaw muscles to hold struggling prey.
This proves that Cats are better than dogs

i would like to state the definition of dog as you see below as i have been saying they are carnivorous and they are very tough and are related to wolfs that live in the wild and are fierce.

dog (d�g, dg)
n.
1. A domesticated carnivorous mammal (Canis familiaris) related to the foxes and wolves and raised in a wide variety of breeds.
2. Any of various carnivorous mammals of the family Canidae, such as the dingo.
3. A male animal of the family Canidae, especially of the fox or a domesticated breed.

my opponent stated wolfs being part of the dog family, dogs are domesticated and wolves aren't. i have won because cats are more awsome than dogs and you now it.
stargateman

Con

I have obviously won because he has stated that cats are better than dogs when cats are small and cowardly and run away if fight is coming when a dog would stay and fight and stand his or her ground and dogs are the best animals ever and you know it so that is why i have won this debate.
