This is all opinions, but I think cats are better since theyre cuddly and cute. Their purrs can relieve stress due to their sound and the vibration it makes.


I would like to start this debate by thanking you for bringing such a controversial question to DDO. This question has been debated for thousands of years, and still goes through the mind of many pet-lovers.
I would also like to say that you show no evidence of your statement, "Purrs can relive stress due to their sound and the vibration it makes." I believe this is a load of crap, but I will give you the benefit of the doubt.
Those who say cats are better than a typical Nazi. That right there is the cold hard fact.
Dogs are loyal, vigilant watchman who can protect in numerous amounts of ways. These creatures are man's Best-Friend for a reason.
Thanks and Vote Meh

2 points to Con (Sources), 1 point to Pro (S&G). Reasons for voting decision: I love cats

[*Reason for removal*] Not an RFD, merely a statement of the voter"s own affections.

3 points to Pro (Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Con conceded that cats have numerous benefits to their owner. Con also failed to provide any substantial benefits to dogs other than "security", which Con failed to explain why was more important than Pro's benefits.
[*Reason for removal*] The voter is required to specifically assess arguments made by both sides. The voter assesses Con"s arguments, but never assesses Pro"s.

The part where I said "Those who say cats are better than a typical Nazi." is a typo.

Reasons for voting decision: Neither debater really makes much of a case for their side. Both sides function solely based on assertion with Pro providing 2 arguments in support of his position and Con providing 1. I don't know how to weigh "cuddly and cute" because I don't get a means to do so, but there's some value there. Stress reduction is more substantial and has clearer links to impacts, though those are never stated clearly. Most of Con's round is wasted space where he questions Pro's latter point, but grants him the benefit of the doubt, and then does little else beyond arguing that dogs can be protectors. Again, the impacts are somewhat obvious, though they're never explained. So, I essentially have stress reduction vs. protection, and since both sides arguments are essentially granted, I simply vote the direction that has what I perceive to be the closest link to the highest impact, and that's Con. Protection may save lives. Reduced stress may, too, but that requires explanation.
