After a pup called Max, my niece Rachael wants a kitten! She has been reading extensively about every feline matter, and now she wants to have a member of the feline species in her own home. Obviously the task fell on me to try and get a kitten for her. I have been really busy lately, so that enterprise has been put on hold for the time being. But with this kitten thing coming up on me, I realized that people are divided when it comes to their liking for the cat and the dog!
Some people, like me, would hopelessly root for the dog. There are others who don’t like the canines much. They are fond of cats. I think there is a psychological reason behind it. I can’t remember who told me, but there was someone who enlightened me on a probable reason for this some years back. People who like dogs are attention seeking individuals, while people who prefer cats are attention giving individuals. I don’t know if there is any sense in this, but it somehow fits with the idea.
Dogs are actually very giving. They are never selfish and will always put you before themselves. I can say that for sure because my pet dog Kong is like that. He waits for me to serve him food and goes hungry unless I’m back home. Cats, I have heard, love to be pampered all the time. They want you to do things for them, while they roll around in glory. I have never had a cat, so I can’t actually say it’s true. What do you think? Do you like cats or dogs?
