Good reasons why cats make better pets than dogsGood reasons why cats make better pets than dogsYes, I am probably biased toward cats. I have already admitted that I am dangerously close to being a 'crazy cat lady,' but I think it's for good reason - there is just way too much awesome about cats. Growing up, I had both dogs and cats around, and I have always loved cats far more than dogs. There has been this age-long feud between cat and dog lovers over which is the superior pet, and I will always and forever answer that with cat. Here are 6 good reasons why cats make better pets than dogs:
