Cats suck.

Having recently cleaned up the sun porch where the family cat lives, I have come to the conclusion that I will not buy a cat. The room was full of so much cat dander, cat hair, hidden fur balls, puke, and dead rotting mice carcasses, that I nearly lost my lunch, and at one point or another, my will to live. Who ever said cats are clean is a liar. Sure, maybe they keep themselves clean, but that's it. That is why I will at some point get a dog instead of a cat (probably when I move out of my parents' basement).

This will be my dog:

If only . . . I have four cats and a dog!

And what's your assessment?

My assessment is that both cats and dogs are messy! Cats take less time and attention and they tend to keep their messes contained to a smaller area. Dogs are a member of the family and they take a bigger commitment. When they're puppies they take a lot of time and patience, day and night. As in, if you have anything else going on in your life, take a year long sabbatical! However, maybe because of the extra commitment, I find that I have a very reciprocal relationship with my dog. So, overall I think you should get the dog with the broom and dustpan!

Sounds good. The thing that I am not a fan of is the endless hair and dander. There are some breeds that are better than others. With our cat, she sheds every second of every day and every time you pet her. I don't want that. That much I know.

Get a hairless cat, or a non shedding dog!
