Seriously?  We are debating this?  What are cats good for?  They are moody, selfish, overly-independant, they piss in a box for god's sake.  

Dogs.  Thank you.  There is really no debate.

Grew up with many of each. I have found that cat haters tend to be control freaks or are waaaaay to into birding. IME dog haters seem to lack empathy.

I guess it's all in what you're looking for. I'm not home all that much which is why I prefer cats. They can do just fine without you. Plus the subtraction of drool everywhere and crotch sniffing makes me happy. Loud ass barking can go away too...damn neighbors.

Cats are only good for internet pictures.  To me there is no question, dogs are better than cats.  Although I will give one exception, I knew someone who had a cat that acted much like a dog.

dogs and cats. They each have their own pros and cons, to me. I would probally say I like dogs a little better, but I have no problem  with cats either. Cats may be a pain at times, but they also do some pretty hilarous things. Owning a dog has it's bad moments as well. I have never really understood the hate some people have for cats.

 

This article was pretty funny, not surpised since Cracked articles are generally pretty good.   The clawing thing isn't really an issue if you have the cat declawed though, but I could see where some people may have a problem with that practice.

was this 15'' off color toy fox terrier, anyway one time we were visiting my cousin's house and my little dog had her massive golden retriever-chow mix cornered in it's own yard.

Yeah, she may have become blind and incontinent for her last year but she was still 10X as awesome as any cat I've com across
