I think I am more of a cat person. For what Bex wrote above me, that they are more independent. My cat is such a sweetie, but isnt always up my butt 24/7. I dont mind cleaning out the litter pan either.
I love pups too, I adore beagles. But where we live it really isnt best for a dog (I need a fenced in yard, and we arnt aloud that here).
