10 Reasons Why Cats Are Better Than Dogs


Yes, I am probably biased toward cats. I have already admitted that I am dangerously close to being a ‘crazy cat lady,’ but I think it’s for good reason — there is just way too much awesome about cats.

Growing up, I had both dogs and cats around, and I have always loved cats far more than dogs. There has been this age-long feud between cat and dog lovers over which is the superior pet, and I will always and forever answer that with CAT.

Click through to read 10 reasons why cats make much better pets than dogs:

    You Don't Have to Walk Them
    Unlike dogs who need to be walked outside, cats don't make you go out 2-3x a day when it's too hot or too cold.

    Cats are smart enough to be able to use the washroom. They don't need to be let out to do on the ground for you to pick up.

  • They Don’t Require A Lot Of Room 3 of 10
    They Don't Require A Lot Of Room
    Dogs take up a lot of room -- from a bed to toys and lots of food. Cats, all they need is the top of a couch to sit on.

    They Like To Be Left Alone
    Dogs always want your attention, even when you don't have the time. Cats like to be left alone and will seek you out less often for cuddles.

  • They Catch Mice 7 of 10
    They Catch Mice
    Cats are handy to have around to catch any mice or birds that may be bothering your house. Dogs would probably just make friends with them.

  • They Have Their Own Schedule 9 of 10
    They Have Their Own Schedule
    When you have a dog you have to work them into your schedule -- when to walk them a few times a day, when to take them to the washroom. Cats have their own thing going on and don't need much from us.

    They Have a Great Sense of Humor
