dogs vs. cats

Cat lovers may adore their haughty, French-acting felines, but I prefer dogs. Cats act as if they're doing you a favor by living in your house, eating storebought food, clawing furniture to shreds, pissing on curtains and shitting in potted plants. Take really good care of them and they'll display their gratitude by hacking up a hairball on your carpet.

Let's see a got-dam cat do something like this:

"The dog approached her owner, who was lying on the ground in a pool of blood, and saw the infant... she snatched up the baby's leg with her mouth and rescued him from drowning," she said. [...] "...the boy finally breathed and cried out after the dog licked him on the face..."

Can you see a CAT doing that? I'm trying to visualize it in my mind's eye... Naw... Can't see it. All I can see is a cat walking away with its tail in the air while thinking, "Fuck this crap. None of MY business. I ain't gettin' involved."

The only thing that would bother a cat about this incident is the fact that nobody was around to open the door so that it could go outside and kill baby birds.

(UPDATE: Loyal reader Brian Cost sent me this link to prove, once again, that cats can't be trusted. Especially beware of the ones that scream and attack dogs.)


Does it always have to be one against the other? Dogs, cats, I've had more than one of both and loved them all. Cried when they died.

Like all living creatures, including men, there's good ones and bad ones. Smart or dumb. Sweet or mean. It's not the species, it's the individual that counts.

That's great about the dog, but look at the big picture here. The lady was in labor and didn't call 911 or whatever the number is in Taipei. How can you be so close to delivery and think it's just a bad BM? That's a level of stupidity that defies comprehension.

Obviously the animal that transmitted the rabies to the cat could not be trusted either. That could have been any number of wild animals. Around here the usual suspects are foxes and coons, who will come into suburban yards and attack. IOW: It's not just a cat threat. Beware the possums too, Rob.

Dogs have owners.

Cats have staff...

Oh, right Rob. Like a rabid dog would be obedient and self-composed.
