Im' not a fan of cats, unknown. Because we're out in the country we have 2 to keep mice out but, nah, if a dog kept the number of dormice down then no cats would enter my home.

I don't mind folks having pets for pets sake, more not thinking thru the implications beforehand (cost over the years, time, holidays, illness, work etc). If you are going to get a dog then be prepared to have to walk it in the winter and get it jags, if a hamster or fish you have to clean the cage/tank. Its not rocket science. I hate folk who think shoving a dog outside for 5 minutes a day counts as its total exercise.

I've noticed over the years that certain types of people like or dislike cats.  I'm a big cat person, always have been.  I love dogs too, but I've always had cats.   You can't train them so if you have the need to have control over something than a cat is not for you.  I like how cats are free spirited, it suites my personality just fine.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

I agree with the lazy pet-owner thing.  My neighbours are like that with their dogs, and it's annoying.  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

I hate when people blow up at pets because they have an accident occasionally or before they are house trained. My oldest cat had worms earlier this year and before we found out what was the cause, she had a lot of accidents. While annoying I didn't lose my cool cause accidents do happen. I thought maybe it was because of her age, she is 10 after all and she already has a little arthritis. My mother in law gets mad when her puppy accidentally uses the restroom in the house; however, its few things for it: One its a puppy its not fully house trained, two it gets real excited when other people come over, and three sometimes my mother in law ignores when the dog is telling her it needs to go outside to use the restroom. The finial one is on her, so she shouldn't get mad. She thought about getting rid of the dog because of this. I know others who have done/though just the same. Thats cruel to the animal and stupid on the human's part. You don't throw away your child do you? I know there are those cases where people have, but thats not my point. 

Agree 100%.  I had a girl on my Facebook a few years ago that was doing this.  Her cat kept urinating in different places in her house.  She was complaining about in on her status, saying how pissed off she was and that he's going to have to find another home.  I told her that if he's doing that than he has either a physical or mental issue, and that she should take him to the vet.  She did and it turned out that he had a blockage in his bladder.  Then she was on her status again complaining about how much the vet cost her!  ahdn_paul_01  So annoying.  Poor cat, like it's his fault.

You can train them a little bit like if they need to go outside or use the litter box and certain tricks, but yea most of the time they are free thinkers. 

Thats the thing I love most about cats and their independence. I can leave my indoor kitty and not worry about her destroying the house and accidentally using the restroom (majority of the time). A dog I would have to worry about those things. I do love dogs though and I grew up with dog (cats too), but to suit my lifestyle I am a cat person.
