Some people like dogs. That's OK. Let them like dogs. In my opinion, they're not as fun as cats. While owning one or the other has it's own distinct advantages and disadvantages, I'd rather opt for a cat simply because they are more interesting and easier to mess with. The house I live in has three total, two males and one female (she rules supreme), and they all have vastly different personalities. I've never met a cat that didn't have some striking "character" trait or personality; whether it was just being extremely laid back or spunky, each one came off as an individual. I also happen to find them superior in visual aesthetics compared to a dog with the exception of the greyhound and it's cousins.
It's been an experience owning a cat. You find that certain things aren't safe anymore, like hair ties or plastic bags. Or the trash can. Sometimes it's funny, other times... well let's say I've had my fair share of cleaning up hair balls and it's not so much fun. I still enjoy them immensely, despite the occasional issue or two or three... ^_~
So here's the sketch I did just the other day of my hug-able kitty!
And here's a bonus image I thought I'd throw in. So cute! (When he's not jumping into our trash can)
