yes they are.
You wouldn't say 'cool as dogs' would you?
Saying that, Rude Dog (of Rude Dog and The Dweebs fame) was pretty damn cool
so have to laminate them
But in the defence of cats:
Never promises to love you forever before walking into 2 lane busy traffic like a damned idiot.
Slickest coolest animals ever - just look at their grace in the jungle/serengheti! While dogs like jackals etc are just major scavs
Cats just win every time despite movie moguls painting them as fat greedy villains.
Are superior in every way.
Dogs are stupid and needy like big dumb kids.
I agree Nrainlove - used the exact same description before even reading you post.
Stupid, needy mutts!
Nrainlove is my pet name for John. The secret is out.
incredibly wrong! Dogs are better! They are loyal, loving and man's best friend!
I probably love them more than dogs but that's mainly because most cats are of the same 'model': quiet, nice fur and face, that sort of thing.
With dogs there are so many different breeds and not all of them are my sort. I do love my uncle's chocolate lab, but those dogs take soooo long to settle down so I'm not sure I could ever own one.
If I could own a dog it'd be a collie. But they're just not an option. So at home we have cats since we can look after them. If mum retires I imagine she'll get dogs too. Probably a staffy like she had in the past.
Mmm. So in response: Dogs AND cats. I'm no fascist!
= better. Fact.
clearly no ones that serious deputy!
Dogs basically smell so so bad even when their owners say they don't. They have much more fur and it gets everywhere. Stroking a cat makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. A dog feels all bony and coarse.
Heathcliff and Henry's were great cats and while I admire Scooby Doo to a small degree - he is so much more useless and stupid than they are. Even Garfield which is one cat I hate is better than the humble simple suck up creature known as dog.
When god made dog he made a cold blooded killer not man's best friend. Accept it and move on.
to which animal is portrayed better on film. That's like saying you're a thick Mancunian because of (insert name of thick character from Coronation Street here).
And in what way are cats not needy?! Shut up the fucking mewing, you short-arsed not-a-proper-pet disloyal little crapbag. Cats = shit. As Slipknot would say.
look what kind of people own dogs - unrefined hooligans who train them to attack indeed Bamos probably trains his to attack felines and has handed a superiority complex to his mutt obviously.
You'll find I said dogs get a better deal on film. It's because they need all the help they can get
What does wet cat smell like Bam Bam? What's that? You don'tknow? YES THAT"S BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT STUPID ENOUGH to play out in the rain and come home stinking like dead flesh
out in the rain is one of life's great joys, be you dog or human. Ask anyone who's ever played football in the rain, it's brilliant. The fact that dogs know how to enjoy themselves in a childish juvenile way shouldn't be held against them. I'd rather have an animal that went out and had a laugh than swanned around like it owned the place. The place being the WHOLE FUCKING STREET. Get out of my garden, you stuck-up little interloper.
dogs will love anyone. It doesn't make you special to get a dog to like you. They're stupid.
You have to earn respect from a cat. So if you get one to love you, they're the best thing ever.
Also, I agree with IShotTheDeputy - cats all look like cats, therefore they're all ace. How can you like 'dogs' generically? I mean, tiny ones like Pomeranians are cool, but how can you like those AND evil man-eating Rottweilers and Alsatians?
is obviously only about proper dogs. If you can pick it up, it's not a dog. It's wrong.
ie jack russells are fun but alsatians are slavering hellhounds.
cats eat and kill birds. I hate birds. Ergo, cats are my friends.
without a doubt.
Cats are disgusting things! Dogs are fantastic!
Cats are just evil creatures!
have never almost killed me.
Dogs have. I prefer Cats...
do to the dog to make it attack you?
tried to hump it. Fullerov humps dogs. Fact.
allegedly the dog has to give consent...
really want to know? This could show fullerov in a unsatisfactory light
I didn't do anything to it.
That fucker is dead now though, and i am not.
See dogs are great biting an intruder! They look after you - Cats how can they look after you!
a funny looking dog.
dogs are stupid, needy, smelly and really stupid.
Cats bury their own poo, disreetly. Sophisticats!
Help me! There are too many cat lovers on here today!
Cats are totally winning.
people who are misguided does not mean that they are winning. It merely means that they are all STUPID.
If this argument were in the pub I'd be winning. Clearly.
you shout louder than everyone else. That doesn't mean you win. Whoever wins this thread is the TRUTH.
dogs are really rubbish.
salem from sabrina the teenage witch is SO MUCH better than say, lassie.
the Cheshire Cat in Alice In Wonderland is far superior to say, The Littlest Hobo.
JUST STAY WITH THE NICE FAMILY YOU STUPID, STUPID DOG!
They're both hairy moulting and demanding and interrupt your ability to go on holiday. And other peoples cats leave grossly pungent shits in your garden
They're both cool in other peoples houses although I have to say I like dogs and friendly cats. What's the point of an unfriendly cat?
I'd go for a plant.
species seem to love me far more than i care for them, but as cats generally lick me less and just curl up on my lap rather than jumping at my legs for hours on end i'd have to go for cats.
i wish i wasn't so damn hairy
1. You can't play with a cat, they're too superior.
2. Cats scratch and make horrible hissing noises.
3. Cats poo all over my garden, and when I drunkenly throw water at them and miss they don't even slightly jump and look at me like I'm shit. (see point 1)
Dogs are the best pet ever, except perhaps a donkey.
ROOOOOOOL. Although I have nothing against dogs (apart from stupid, little ones that have to be carried everywhere).
Stupid dogs try to hump EVERYTHING!
Put your doggie lipstick away you stupid dog.
wrong with trying to hump everything?
*watches Bamos run off after it with his tongue hanging out of his mouth*
Ahhh, piece and quiet for five minutes.
it's not exactly hard to catch a bit o wood, is it?! It takes far more skill to catch something that's running/flying!
We supported them once
rubbish! They played on a barge on a really hot summers day in Camden lock tho, and that was nice.
Cat Stevens > Dogs
I should have gone for that. That would have made me look at bit cooler!
Cat Deely = Dog.
Where does this leave us?
Soaps obviously know this, as there are no pet cats in them but just think of all those brilliant dogs....
Little Willy, bouncer, Well 'ard, Bouncer V, Bob...
allegedgly. Dogs can be vegan quite happily (not cats) and supposedly smell quite pleasant, though the farts are probably just as bad.
Patricide: I still don't get the London thing comment RE: this thread???
cats - shit off
stems from Bamos going mental in a london pub and shouting something about cats being crap in front of other people who use this site.
I like cats better.
Not loyal? RUBBISH.
My old neighbours had two cats. Once when I went to the shops one of them followed me, sat outside waited and then returned home with me. Lovely.
I totally wasn't there and missed that.
Cats are only loyal to cat lovers I reckon. Dogs tend to be more than happy to love non-dog lovers.
every time I've had a friend stay who doesn't like cats, my cat has gone and sat on their bed at night. And on one occasion, woken my friend up by tapping her gently on the face. Ace!
dude - have you been at the crack again? no way can dogs be vegan!
cats are way better, they dont try and hump your leg
horrible little selfish shits.
Dogs are a man's best friend. And you never hear of cats recuising their ownrs from lakes/fires/other dangerous places do you? No they eat their smelly Kitty-Kat and fuck off for 17 hours.
independant, they dont rely on you all the time, they dont make any noise or smell but they are there for you when you need them.
and when the inevitable happens and the world is overcome by rats whose gonna save us...exactly! Cats!!
"i'd rather have my leg humped than have it shredded by cat's disgusting dirty claws."
Is that an offer? If so I'd guess Crablin's buying a ticket to Scotland as we speak...
1) any human characteristics attributed to either dogs are cats are all in the minds of their owner - they're ANIMALS.
2) cats are generally perceived, both by people who like and dislike them, as being aloof, not needy, cool, superior.
3) dogs are perceived as needy, overly affectionate, stupidly loyal regardless of how they're treated.
4) given 1,2, and 3 that must mean that people who prefer cats want to surround themselves with people who are aloof and don't show them love. they must therefore feel that they don't deserve love.
therefore I conclude that people who prefer cats all secretly hate themselves.
people who like dogs must like to surround themselves with people who kiss their ass and they feel they can boss about, therefore dog-lovers = bullies.
I don't own an ass. Or a donkey. Or a mule.
a dog actually. :(
have woken their owners up when there's been a house fire before.
Just got back from getting my lunch at Sainsburys....and what was chained up outside? A stupid dog! CHAINED UP!! hahahahahahahaha!
It was clearly bored and feeling sorry for itself...looking up pathetically at each person as they left the shop "are you my owner? no. oh,ok". It clearly wanted to be playing int he park, ya know having fun - like a cat can whenever it wants.
I almost felt sorry for the little mutt until I realised it would be trying to hump my leg if it wasn't chained up.
aw. that's really sad. you should have hung around and berated its owner for leaving the poor thing alone.
Or freed it and taken it home.
I think it knew I was right in its heart of hearts.
Yeah, Hi, I want the fire brigade please.
Sure, what seems to be the problem?
Well, my fucking stupid cat is stuck up a bloody tree
Well, if you'd got a dog, this wouldn't be an issue. Because you'd know where it is, because you'd have a loyal pet, not something that tries to be adventurous but fails miserably and then runs home crying. Or rather, stands in a tree crying. Twelve people died in a collapsed apartment block because your stupid mental fucking cat couldn't be arsed to jump out of a tree. Goodbye.
I couldn't be bothered to read all of the other posts in this thread so If I cover something that's already been said I don't care.
Firstly, DOGS SMELL. This is an undeniable FACT, they smell like a combination of arse and a mouldy flannel. As soon as someone walks on to a bus with a dog you can smell it within seconds. Who the fuck brings a dog on to a bus anyway (blind people not included) that's not walking the dog is it? Getting the bus? Silly dog owners. And anyway if a cat got on a bus it wouldn't be all smelly and impolite like dog, it would probably have an oyster card (unlike a dog who would probably have some out of date travel card with the wrong zones on) and it would offer it's seat to old or pregnant people and refrain from eating chicken cottage filth/pedigree chum like a dog would.
Loyalty shouldn't be confused with STUPIDITY. Dogs are the unthinking unchallenging pet for people who want a safe existence, they are pet equivalent of james blunt. Dogs are for people who don't have any mates, (or any that on the same level of intelligence as them, that's where the dog comes in) cats are for people who've got better things to do than feed some hairy saggy shit a load of tripe or pick up turds with a plastic bag. Yeah, and cats don't shite all over the carpet, cats are actually capable of controlling their bowels and let themselves out of the house to do their business in your neighbours garden, this makes them rule.
Dogs are also FUCKING LOUD and officially make the most stupid noise of all the animal kingdom, WOOF, it's embarrassingly stupid, I bet even a cow would be embarrassed at that awful noise. It sounds like phil mitchell retching (probably at the stench of a dog). Meows are a nice sound, it's an undemanding, polite "excuse me, would it possible to have a light snack in one of your finest plastic bowls" type of sound. Contrary to what bamos says, PURRRRRRRRRRRRR is an ace noise. Cats also DO NOT PANT. Only obese people pant, thus, dogs are like rick waller, they sing just about as well too.
Only an idiot dog would run after a stick, just proves dog owners are power freaks/wife beaters who want to control something in their lives. A cat would never run after a stick, what the hell is the point of that? Go an get your own stick, you're the one who lobbed it you cunt.
Dogs swim - swimming is shit. They're rubbish at it as well, if a cat wanted to swim, it would, but why would it? It'd only get it's fur unnecessarily wet and then it would smell as bad as dog/mouldy flannel.
Dogs also murder and rape children/other dogs, they also screw old people of their money and give them unnecessary medical procedures and lethal injections, this makes them like harold shipman. He looks a bit doggish doesn't he? Also, the term "dogging". Wonder why they called it that? Because dogs are dirty smelly pervy tossers.
And now I can't be bothered to type any more, because, like a cat, I've got better things to do.
there is that dog owners can't be arsed to spend that long arguing our point. We're busy playing with our pets, which are somewhere around the house, and not on someone's roof in the next postcode.
down at Jeff's house you mean!
to justify the slobbering house bound mutts in your lives. You buy .....sorry get them from a dogs home, disable them with smothering and copious amounts of pedigree chum and then force them to love you. They can't leave - they're too braindead to realise an open door would free them from your tyranny. Cat owners are more relaxed and cooler people. They have lives and want a pet that doesn't run or impede theirs.
not braindead, it's loyalty dear. The police don't employ police cats do they? Because cats are shite, have no loyalty and would piss off at every opportunity. They're the pet equivalent of Pete Doherty.
Dogs are the ones who smoke crack and gamble (see poker pictures). The police don't employ dogs, they ENSLAVE them. A cat would never be stupid enough to be enslaved.
is correct and like a cat he rules
has human eyes. She's my best friend. This say's alot about me.
not that i'm a dog with human eyes. Or a human with dog eyes...
SHIT! ARGH BLEH HMM
I never got to meet you on friday, I should have gone, if only for that.
sober. I tried to get drunk, even by welcoming cans of a second-hand nature. And unveiling a bottle of imperial vodka from my leather handbag. Yet my subtley failed me. Not realising Sean sat right next to me, I complained "ThisGirl are SHIT!". But they were quite good live.
as someone else before he agrees with himself!
you are now OFFICIALLY my favourite DiSer.
GO TEAM CATS!
also. I have one more thing to add that actually CRUSHES all arguments for dogs and settles this whole farce once and for all.....
he's curled up sweetly, purring and playing with a ball of wool.
but you get the picture.
Am leaning to the Dog side now - are you forgetting Dogtanian?!! He rode a horse and everything. And he could swordfight.
the cat lovers are getting spikey n vindictive!!
Homesick Allen are you arching your back and hissing?!
I think my colleages are getting worried. I can't believe they didn't like the present I got them this morning. Who the hell WOULDN'T want a dead bird?? crazy...
Birds are rubbish, another reason why cats are ace.
their breath really hums. there's no getting around that.
play with poor defensive rodents before killing them. Dogs catch balls and have adorable floppy ears and sometimes runny poo.
like poison to you?
I'm not a fan of the pussy.
And I thought the world revolved around me:0(
are so much better it's not even funny
for two years, and look after it for 6 months as it was abandoned by my old flatmate. Here are some lesser known facts about cats:
1) The are dirty creatures. The shit in a box (ergh!) and stand all over their shit everytime they go.
2) If they shit outside they push it about to bury it.
3) They malt uncontrollably.
4) They are as thick as the shit they push around with their horrible paws.
5) They are unsocaible little gits who don't even like other cats.
6) It's pointless punishing a cat because their too dum to associate their punishment with their crime. So they never, ever learn. Doh!
Take that! (and party)
DOGS SNIFF ARSES.
and cats and cats win. But I am quite obsessed with the idea of getting a greyhound.
Also I don't know if big cats beat big dogs. Sure the panther and lion are cool as hell but what about the fox and wolf. There should be some kind of cat-dog hybrid so I can take the middle ground.
I knew you'd like dogs, pig, eh? I guess you smelly animals have to stick together, since no one else can put up with the STENCH. :D
I like mice. But it's ok that cats eat them - circle of life and all that.
small rodents and all that....
(although I doubt it) but they are treacherous (seeing as we need some kind of fictional reference here - see Animal Farm) which brings them closer to cats than dogs afterall
Capitalist pigs though.
are great but let down by the stench of wallowing in their own excrement.
no need to bring elephants into this, they are actually the best animals ever. Leave them out of it.
Cats don't wallow in their excrement, they go outside and shite in other peoples gardens, they rule. Cat litters are for people who don't know how to keep a cat, probably dog owners.
really hate elephants.
only tyrannical cat owners (and flat people) keep their cats indoors using litter trays. Cats actually dig holes to shit into then bury it. Can't be more considerate than that. And if we are going to argue this over excrement then dogs clearly lose.
Cats R da Bomb!
...Cats and Cats and Cats are clearly better than Dogs:
if you do 'Cat' v 'Dog', the cat wins.
Googlefight ruins all debates.
That cats are way better than dogs. My ex had two golden retrievers and every time I went home after seeing him for the weekend I had to wash my clothes to get rid of the stench of dog.
Hey, let's be reasonable, we can't all agree. It's what makes this crazy mixed-up world an interesting place!
Here's my non-committal tuppence worth.
When I was young, we had cats. My cat got squashed by a car because it was philandering with the neighbour across the road. Hey-ho. My heart broke in two over that one.
Then when I was a bit older we had dogs. And I thought I was a cat person but now - I love dogs! They're just so entertaining with their unshakeable belief that they are actually human, and their stoic refusal to try and break out of the pecking order. Plus I have to admire their death-defying no-limits eating policy. Our one remaining cat retired ungracefully to the utility room for the last - ooh - ten years of its life because it was AGORAPHOBIC (For fuck's sake) and went MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW - MOW on a continuous loop until it finally deigned to die. (you really missed something if you didn't witness my real-time version of this the other night). So my respect for cats has been massively dented, while dogs have risen in my estimation. I'm on the fence, basically.
I'm sorry I missed that impression!
It sounds like the miaowmix advert: "I like beef and I like liver, I like chicken in my dinnner..."
in fact if i may make an inter-post reference one of my recurring bad thoughts when i get the fear is the thought that my parents' dog will in all probability die one day. oh god. it will actually be a family tragedy of massive proportions.
