Floxy is a cute pet that is so much loved by my Auntie but guess what? She’s the only one in our family of six that takes care of her, everyone else including myself are in the ‘tolerating gang’.

Although I’ve never lived with cats before, this is my first time and I will say I Prefer dogs to cats. Here are my;


They completely depend on you

Dogs completely depend on you, for some people, this can be too much. However, other people really enjoy looking after an animal that relies on you and needs you.

They get you out the house every day

Dogs make you leave the house every single day, whether you like it or not. Cats don’t need to be walked, but dogs do, so dog owners get to go outside and benefit from fresh air and exercise every day.

You can exercise with dogs

You don’t see many people out running with their cats…Dogs provide an opportunity to exercise, whether it’s going on a walk, playing in the park or taking part in a dog sport.

Dogs can be more loving

Cats are very independent, and usually return home for food and shelter. Some cats are different, and can be very affectionate, but on the whole, dogs are more loving and devoted to their owners.

They are less likely to scratch you (on purpose at least)

Some cats can scratch, sometimes even on purpose. This is one thing that makes me dislike Floxy, I didn’t say hate!  Dogs may scratch you accidentally when they jump up or during playtime, but they won’t usually do it with intent.

They can help guard your home and protect you

Dogs can make excellent guard dogs and are handy if you want to feel safer in your home. They will bark and put off intruders, and do what they can to protect their human family. Nevertheless in this aspect too, Floxy plays a great role in keeping rats and snakes away!. I give her kudos on that.

You always get a lovely welcome home from dogs

There’s nothing better than the welcome dogs give you when you return home. Some cats will come up and greet you, but not quite in the same way.

Dogs can do useful jobs

You can get working dogs that can do very useful jobs, such as guarding, herding and search and rescue. You can also train your dog to do certain jobs whereas cats tend to just do as they please.

Dogs can be heroes

You hear amazing stories of dogs being incredibly brave and saving people, and not many stories of cats doing the same thing.

Dogs are very loyal

Finally, dogs are very loyal pets and will stay by their owners side through thick and thin.

What other things do you love about dogs? Or cats if you are a cat lover!.
