Cats and Dogs
According to a new poll by the Associated Press, Americans prefer dogs to cats overwhelmingly. The poll also indicated men are more likely to choose dogs as pets than women are. The reasons many people prefer dogs to cats is their loyalty and their need for human interaction. Dogs are also more readily trainable and will do tricks and follow commands to please their owners. Cat lovers appreciate the independence of their pets and that cats generally require less daily upkeep than their canine counterparts. Litter box training negates daily walks, and cats can groom themselves and generally be content if left alone for a while. The tides may change in time for next year. Meows may outweigh bow-wows again in popularity soon enough.
