Are dogs better than cats?
- Cats are commonly believed to have been domesticated in Ancient Egypt. However, there may have been instances of domestication as early as the Neolithic era. Cats are the most popular pet in the world, with a population of domestic cats estimated over 500 million. Despite being solitary hunters, cats are a social species and have either a mutualistic relationship with humans. Cats are independent, usually clean animal, and don’t need to be walked twice a day.
- Being the oldest domesticated animals, dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, protection, assisting police and military, companionship, and, more recently, aiding handicapped individuals. This impact on human society has given them the nickname "man's best friend" in the Western world. Dogs are usually very loyal and sociable with their human owners, but need more attention.
People these days often value cats for their independence: you can live your life as normal, and when you come home your furry friend might be there for a cuddle. There's no "might" with dogs, however. Dogs are always there and usually want to be with you. Many dog owners feel that their pet bounding up to them when they come home is the highlight of the day.
