Which Pet Is Better?

For FOWC: Amuse and the MVB Prompt: Meow (because I wrote about cats). My family probably won’t get any new pets anytime soon, but maybe I will get my own dog or cat later. I like both for different reasons.


If my family gets another pet,
Should we welcome a dog or buy a cat?
It’s been some years but we are not sure yet.

Yet we are sure that either will amuse,
Despite most cats and dogs differing much.
Cats are not likely, are they, to chew shoes?

Dogs are much more effusive with their joy,
Yet cats have royal presence and more peace.
Either type would be a good girl or boy.

I find this picture pretty hilarious for some reason, so it seemed perfect for this post!

  1. A dog is more trouble, but is effusive in showing his love for you. A cat is self-sufficient, but is aloof and independent. A dog looks at you and thinks to himself, “You feed me, you shelter me, you love me. YOU must be God!” A cat looks at you and thinks to himself, “You feed me, you shelter me, you love me. I must be God!”
