Cat, dog or otter?

I wonder if mobileread memebers prefer cats to dogs? We did have a thread on this last year, but no poll.

My guess is that readers mostly prefer cats - cats will sit on a lap while you're reading. No problem.

Dogs insist on having walks - taking time away from books!

So - do you like Cats, Dogs, (and from the other thread, Rabbits, Rats, Fish and Goats) or Other?

If it was multi choice I would have voted cat & dog, but as it is not and I have two dogs and one cat I guess I had to vote dog

I wanted to vote dog and fish.

I much prefer dogs to cats, but I ultimately chose fish. They don't require much attention, and when I forget to feed them for a while, they don't usually die.

I've just been listening to the cd of The Australian Romance Readers Convention. Author Angela Verdenius says about cats - "I'm down to 11. I had 14 but some of the oldies died."
She does have a breeder's license and takes in rescue cats I think.

She beat me times 2 - at one time I had 7 cats. But now I only have one.

Dogs are my favourite. I have two cats and I love them to bits, but still, dogs are much easier! I never had a dog walk all over my keyboard and now I have two cats fighting over it... (the right to walk over my keyboard that is, right on top of it).

And I generally can't read when either of the two cats is around, and especially not if they are both around. They only want to be petted!

Deliberately not multiple choice. So far, dogs are ahead... but it's very early days so far.

Your doggie looks so much like the dog I used to have. He was part lab (coloring/face) and part greyhound (very tall and skinny) and he weighed about 75 lb (you could see his ribs, for his height, that was skinny) and he thought he was a lap dog all through his life. Everytime I sat on the floor, he'd sit right down on me. I really miss him. He was a *great* friend. Now I'm feeling sad. Miss you, Toby!

technically the two cats i have are completely involuntary. but i've always preferred cats to dogs. dogs are too drooly, smelly, noisy ! and they need so much attention. and you have to take them outside for a walk every day, even when it's freezing cold and raining !!! one of my cats has a temperament a lot like a dog : she always wants attention, and she makes a lot of noise, and she often drives me a bit crazy.

You have to choose between them, or not vote. That's rather the point!

My dog has been following me around all morning putting her head in my hands whenever I stop petting her. She just can't get enough today. This is after about 3 hours of it.
