Do anime creators like cats more than dogs?
Dog's seem to be the walking liabilities while cats seem to be perfect support.
Lonely people prefer cats to dogs.
Cats are cuter.
Dogs can't be interesting characters, since they are sniveling fools.
They have more spunk.
I hate dogs because they are so fucking needy.
Cats are way cooler and dont give a fuck.
But that sounds like an interesting character over the stereotypical intellectual talking cat you faggot.
Because it's Japan.
i'm a pretty lonely guy and i would prefer a dog.
cat's seem too self centered and only desire belly rubs and food. it feels like they would leave me if given the chance.
dogs are friendly and give off a warm fuzzy vibe (depending if they like you or not). they will stay by your side no matter what, loyal to the end.
>Shinji should be in more anime
But cats are shit friends, they give no shits about you, this is proven fact.
Cat's be like
> Pet me
10 seconds later
> touch me one more time and I'll bite you
No fuck that. Dogs are better.
Would you take a knot?
I hate how suddenly everyone prefers cats, what's so good about cats? I just can't see it.
Dogs are too clingy, they don't leave you alone.
Sounds like a tsundere. Which would explain why the Japs love 'em so much.
Cats = your master who uses you as a slave
Dogs = Loyal friends and companions
people who don't go outside have cats
it's that simple
objectively dogs are better in literally every single way
cats are cute rats, they don't love you, they want your food and shelter, they're not capable of any kind of non-instinctual thoughts or emotions unlike dogs
What does Shinji have anything to do with a thread about cats?
I wish my cat was like that, so fucking clingy all day.
>there are actually people on /a/ who prefer cats over dogs
Maybe if you had gotten man's best friend as a pet, you wouldn't have to complain about being antisocial fuckers that sit inside all day.
Shinji = dog
Asuka = cat
>cat's seem too self centered and only desire belly rubs and food
You have never had a cat have you?
>it feels like they would leave me if given the chance.
Outdoor cats can leave when ever they want to but, they don't. you leave a gate open and you're loyal dog is fucking gone...(Unless you actually train it, and lets face it no fucking dog own trains their pet anymore because they don't have to balls to discipline fluffy)
Dogs are cool but, it takes a lot of effort.
pets shouldn't be your friends.
But you can train your dog so that when you want him to he will sit and stay and leave you alone. Cats just do what they want. If you are eating they will just jump right up on the table, you are trying to type something they just walk on your keyboard.
>not having both
>not having a tsundere cat who ignores you most of the day but comes up to you and bumps his head against you needingly later
>not having a dog who's liable to break your back jumping on you when you come home from walking outside to get the fucking mail
Rei = lab mouse
My sisters cat would like a word with you.
>Cats just do what they want.
You can train cats to a degree though.
Cats are usually low maintenance. Feed them, clean out the litter box, let them chill with you when they want, and done. Cat's happy. Dogs you have to play with you or they might tear apart anything they can out of loneliness.
Of course all pets have different attitudes. There are chill dogs and needy cats. But I still prefer cats.
This makes me sad every time.
Cats are so boring, they just sleep all fucking day.
More than dogs instead of cats, i'd love to see more anime with llamas instead of cats.
>Has had one cat at max if at all
There are cats that act just like dogs, needy little fuckers.
Dogs: So loyal they will abandon you as soon as you forget to close the door.
you're blowing my mind, man
Persons of commonplace ideas—unimaginative worthy burghers who are satisfied with the daily round of things and who subscribe to the popular credo of sentimental values—will always be dog-lovers. To them nothing will ever be more important than themselves and their own more primitive feelings, and they will never cease to esteem and glorify the fellow-animal who best typifies these
You're a bad owner, simple as that, no wonder you like cats.
It's funnier to fuck with your cat. And of course, I don't mean literally fucking it, I mean teasing it. And no, I don't mean teasing its genitals.
Why does every anime have to glorify cats like they are some kind of legendary animal that you must appreciate? I just want to watch some anime without having cats shoved up my face.
Dogs are best
Did you even read the comment i replied to?
Just because a character isn't stereotypical doesn't mean it will be a interesting character.
Because cats have a long history of being sacred and stuff.
I hope this is b8
Dogs are not that stupid, if you train them and love them.
You mean that racist prick?
>early 20th century
>not being racist as hell
That dogs are dear to the unimaginative peasant-burgher whilst cats appeal to the sensitive poet-aristocrat-philosopher will be clear in a moment when we reflect on the matter of biological association. Practical plebeian folk judge a thing only by its immediate touch, taste, and smell; while more delicate types form their estimates from the linked images and ideas which the object calls up in their minds. Now when dogs and cats are considered, the stolid churl sees only the two animals before him, and bases his favour on their relative capacity to pander to his sloppy, unformed ideas of ethics and friendship and flattering subservience. On the other hand the gentleman and thinker sees each in all its natural affiliations, and cannot fail to notice that in the great symmetries of organic life dogs fall in with slovenly wolves and foxes and jackals and coyotes and dingoes and painted hyaenas, whilst cats walk proudly with the jungle’s lords, and own the haughty lion, the sinuous leopard, the regal tiger, and the shapely panther and jaguar as their kin. Dogs are the hieroglyphs of blind emotion, inferiority, servile attachment, and gregariousness—the attributes of commonplace, stupidly passionate, and intellectually and imaginatively undeveloped men. Cats are the runes of beauty, invincibility, wonder, pride, freedom, coldness, self-sufficiency, and dainty individuality—the qualities of sensitive, enlightened, mentally developed, pagan, cynical, poetic, philosophic, dispassionate, reserved, independent, Nietzschean, unbroken, civilised, master-class men. The dog is a peasant and the cat is a gentleman.
But they aren't "sacred and stuff".
What's wrong with that?
And cat owners are lazy lonely NEET virgins. So I guess it's better to own neither.
But they were considered so, also if a person just lined up a dog and a cat and asked you to choose which looks more intelligent, you'd choose the one that doesn't have its tongue hanging while looking like a retard.
But they are legendary
And dogs aren't loyal, just stupid.
Both sides have over blown stereotypes
Dogs are better
>sensitive poet-aristocratic philosopher
He is like hipster and edgy all in one. No wonder some of you faggots like him.
Dogs are loyal to anyone that feeds them. You have to earn a cat's loyalty.
Dogs are the whores of the pet world.
A cat is a wild animal that people try to keep as pets, a dog has been bred for thousands of years to live with us. I don't see anything wrong with a dog acting more human-like.
Witch craft works has a llama in it
Man you sound like a whiny faggot.
WHO /dog/ HERE?
ITT people who don't have pets arguing why one pet is better than the other.
>you have to earn a cat's loyalty
Sorry but no, cats are never loyal.
I have a cat. But honestly I wouldn't mind a dog if he wasn't so expensive to feed and shat everywhere so much.
If you aren't a shitty owner, they come back or don't try to run away at all. Dogs just like to explore.
My dog almost died because he kept it in while I was bedridden for two days.
I have no friends.
You're waifu like to explore, other guys' dicks.
>Not calling family over to help take care of your dog
>Unless you actually train it, and lets face it no fucking dog own trains their pet anymore because they don't have to balls to discipline fluffy
Why is this so true?
I've spent a lot of time making sure my dog knows her place and what is ok and not ok.
if she acts out of line she gets jabbed in the neck or booted in the side to let her know.
Go over to my family or friends house and their dogs jump all over and do stupid shit without them disciplining them.
I had cats all my life until I turned 16 and got my first dog. Man, I fucking love that dog, I can't imagine my life without her.
The cats were fine, I liked them, but it's really not the same.
>can't get a job
>dog getting old
It just goes downhill from now on right?
even with their tongue hanging out they still don't look as retarded.
Yeah, about that...

Dogs are a man's best friend.
You mean servant
My cat likes me. I actually didn't used to like cats all that much, my family always had dogs as pets, but I found this one a few years ago. It was less than two weeks old and its mother was either missing or dead, so rather than let it die I scooped it up and raised it. Weird experience, had to bottle feed it, keep it warm, couldn't even use the bathroom on its own at first.
Now it is super attached to me. More clingy and loyal than any dog I've had. If I come home depressed after a rough day he'll come and sit on me and won't leave until I'm feeling better. I don't know about most cats, but this one's a bro.
Yea because outdoor cats just fuck off as soon as you open the door.
At least man isn't dogs' servant, unlike cats.
this. dogs are our bitch. give them shit and they'll love you regardless.
You better get some government bucks so her death doesn't have to be painful. My dog was put down yesterday.
I remember having my sisters dogs over one time, they just straight up opened the door and left.
I'd rather keep a human than a dog or cat
No that looks pretty retarded.
you raised your cat properly then anon.
a lot of people just get a cat and let it "be"
just like a dog you need to socialize them or else they'll be total dicks.
>Dogs have been perfected over thousands of years
Not all of them.
>tfw no feminine neet-boy living under your bed
Pigs can do most of these and I don't see you jerking off to them
Cat's just don't give a shit.
True. I raised two cats differently. One was held and put on the bed when I went to sleep. The other was played with and petted with my feet. First one is an affectionate lap cat while the other is an effective hunter. I love them both.
But what can a cat do? Lie around all day sleeping? Bring dead mice and birds to your door?
I has several dogs and all of them are sluts. Those bitches are happy to see everyone who gives them something tasty. My cat otherwise is a true bro, good husbando material and pretty loyal to me. He don't give a shit about the guests, being affectionate only to me, sleeps only in my lap and playing only with me. Well, maybe he acts this way because I get him when I was 3 years old and we spent together too many time.
Kawamori likes dogs. See Apollo, Amata, Kagura and Ranka.
You must be a goth. Or just someone who hates themself.
Most people that don't discipline their dog to that degree see them as a friend or part of the family, that's all. Your dog is clearly your pet and that's fine but you can't go to another person's house and honestly expect them to treat their dog the same
Pretty much like everyone else around you ;)
>Not having both
My family gifted my german shepherd, he jumped out the truck and came back 1 hour later when i was crying of rage.
And thats why they are better than dogs.
I would agree, but my cat is currently walking across my keyboard and knocking over my anime figurines.
I'm a sensitive poet-aristocrat-philosopher
>Cat domestication: 9000 years ago
>Dog domestication: 15,500 - 33,000 years ago
Oldest and truest friend
>cats are better than dogs because they are bad pets
Why are catfags so elitist and edgy?
>have been with humans since forever
I dunno if this is true for everyone, but in my experience the dogs I've seen owned by women are generally much more badly behaved than those owned by men.
Iggy is an ugly fucker.
The lack of affection from their pets turns them jaded and bitter.
cats are more low maintenance and only tends to keep you company when you most need it unlike dogs which want to play with you constantly
that being said I myself prefer dogs
The Japanese didn't like cats much at first because they ruined the paper screens in houses, and also because according to legend humans and all sorts of animals gathered to cry when the Buddha passed away, except for the cat who was present but didn't give a shit (which ironically is more in accordance with the deceased's teachings than crying is). Even so as far as I know there was no mistreatment for them.
It seems that in the end like always the crafty animals found a way to make themselves popular and loved by all.
We hadn't heard from my uncle for about few weeks and he wasn't picking up his phone, so my dad decided to go check on him, he found him dead on the kitchen with 12 dead birds near him, his cat kept bringing them, we adopted his cat an for a few weeks all it would do is walk around the house meowing.
Yea, cats aren't fucking loyal.
I wanna get a dog, how expensive it would be per week?.
Should i adopt it or buy it?.
And im not going anywhere near /an/.
I like both cunts and dongs, what's not to like?
There's going to be an anime about a dog-person that acts like a cat and a cat-person that acts like a dog they fall for each otherit's a yuri series
Canines are manly while felines are feminine.
that's regular /a/
>And im not going anywhere near /an/.
I don't. i do expect at least some discipline though.
i compare raising a dog to raising children, you teach them the good and bad, what is expected and not.
of course, there's more to the child but it does boil down to that.
Oh, and you're right anon. the primary purpose of my dog is protection and a hunting companion so yes, a pet. i do love her though and consider her part of the family to.
I'd rather have a cat with pros and cons, than a slave who always does whatever I want.
Edgy and elitist: the new meme. I don't know what the fuck means but I'll use them anyway.
I've had both
dogs are better
my cat was an outdoor cat, anything else is animal cruelty
my cat gradually left when my neighbor started feeding her as well
then my neighbor moved an she wanted back in
I told her to fuck off and that I wasn't some kind of doormat she could come back to whenever her first choice had gone
I still see her sometimes, it's still really awkward, she's old now, about 8, I don't know if she found someone to move in with
my dog sleeps in my bed at night, she waits for me when I'm at work, the walks we have are the highpoint of her day, she leaves me alone when I'm at the computer because I've taught her to not come in this room but every now and then she walks past me in the hallway and basically begs me to come to sleep
we live in more of a rural area on an island and there only drives about 1 car an hour past so it's okay to let her out by herself, my neighbors all love her too, she's only run away once and when she did I got a call that she was sitting outside the store which I taught her to do when I was inside, she had apparently been sitting there all day.
she got hit by a car once though, it was the most painful day of my life and while she did fully recover it made me realize that the day she dies I'll probably kill myself, she's 7
sorry for blogging but I really love my dog
>it's a yuri series
You wanna know what's an oddly loyal pet? Chinchillas. I do even have to cage mine. He roams the house and return to the cage to eat, shit, or sleep. Half the time he'll just stay on my lap while I'm on the computer or gaming. Quite a surprising good pet really.
like pet like master
Good thing they don't do it all the time like dogs then
>I'd rather have a cat with pros and cons
>than an animal that only has pros
The last time i did i felt like i was talking whit a mix of PETA and /pol/.
>not confronting neighbor over feeding your cat
Way to let your cat and neighbor walk all over you.
dogs are the mary sue of the animal kingdom
Oh. Shit, it sounds like all the r/an/chers have left then. Shame.
I've two cats myself. They have their own issues as well, but I still prefer them over slave dogs without personality.
Aye, what's worse is owners who let their dogs walk all over them.
hum.. where did i put the gif of a chimp doing the same thing to a cat..
>slave dogs without personality
It's like you've never had a dog before
Enjoy your tru-NEET status symbols
Please search it, im interesed.
Cat owners really are terrible people
>Thinks a raccon is a cat
20$ for a large bag of dog food that will last a few weeks. Paying for the dog varies depending on age and breed. The real wallet killer is when you need to pay a vet bill which shouldn't happen unless you get a sickly dog or it starts getting old.
Dog owners really are terrible people
I've had a dog before and they truly have no personality. They have the personality you want them to have. That's why dogs are used in the military or by the police, for example, unlike cats.
Sounds like you've never had a cat who loves you.
Maybe you just suck.
Lets say... a german shepherd puppy, how much would that be?.
Wasn't there a scene in FLCL about this same question?
>He says on the board that made Caturday
Both animals were bred to be reliant on people
>cat that loves you
No such thing.
>they truly have no personality
>They have the personality you want them to have
I think that says more about you than it does the dog, m80
as long as you feed dog right and exercise they do fine.
can tell you one thing; if you feed them "ol' roy" you won't be seeing them become a ol' roy.
>my cat was an outdoor cat, anything else is animal cruelty
Are you retarded? Outdoor cats have a life expectancy of three years. The cat you let go is lucky and it's pretty much guaranteed she's found a cat house to mooch off of.
which dog is the best for fucking
Your mum cuz she's a bitch
>Do anime creators like cats more than dogs?
This guy certainly does
My cat used to follow me whenever I went to sleepover at my nearby friend's house. She would look in the window and meow at me
My other cat regularly follows me around the house meowing and won't stop until you pet him or settle down around his vicinity, I think he has issues from being abandoned but it's adorable so pfff
He also has conversations, if you meow at him he replies
I don't see how that is funny.
>Reliant on people
Neither animal is you dipshit.
Cats are good hunters and dogs are good scavengers, you can't breed it out.
Cats confirmed for being independent,freethinking spirits.
Enjoy your worthless slaves dog owners.
Are you implying this board isn't full of misanthropic neet shut-ins who spend their time arguing about chinese cartoons and masturbating to CP?
Sounds like the type of people who would love the concept of caturday.
I bet it's some sort of cultural thing. Dogs are louder and generally cause more trouble than cats and Japanese people are all about keeping quiet and not causing trouble. There are plenty of great dogs in anime, but It definitely seems like anime is biased in favor of cats.
They take a lot of training and exercise. They're really energetic. But if raised right, they are fine pets.
dogs are more prevalent in porn
that's all I'm going to say
They both view you for food/safety, you know what I'm talking about.
Lazy Manchildren with a fear of comittment like Cats because minimal effort.
Thats not to say everyone who likes cats is a lazy manchild or that every lazy manchild likes cats, but it's a majority.
>Outdoor cats have a life expectancy of three years.
Look at all these sources, oh wait, there aren't any because that's complete bullshit.
That dont would be a problem, i would take him outside alot, since i would take it as a excuse to go outside.
We're all just cats
I like dogs too, but I find myself more drawn to cats because they're much like people. Each one is a distinct individual and they can range from warm lovey companion to cold crabby tabby. In contrast, dogs tend to become extensions of their masters. While this has its own appeal, it's far less interesting.
Cats are also keep themselves clean and are generally low-maintenance, never needing things like baths and walks to stay healthy. Provide them with food, a litter box, and some affection and they're set.
Dogs were used by samurai because of their loyal nature. I'm a cat person, but japanese also like dogs. Cats are more used in anime because they look cuter, that's it.
Go chuck a freebie with your dog dudebro.
Google it ya poof.
nigger what would a cat do in the military
dogs are used by the police and military because they're smarter and more physically competent
animals don't have personality,they're basically things that breathe and eat, they're guided by instincts, they don't feel emotions and they don't have any deep thoughts, let me put this in to perspective for you since it is actually difficult for humans to understand how un-smart animals are, animals less smart than dolphins and some monkies, don't possess self awareness, that means they don't know that they exist, cats certainly are not capable of of personality as they're less intelligent than dogs, but even dogs don't, what you think is your cat's personality is actually billions of years of evolution that causes your cat to react to certain information in a specific manner
>In contrast, dogs tend to become extensions of their masters
I don't understand how people think this. I've got four dogs and they all have very distinct personalities.
The best pet is people.
>dogs are used by the police and military because they're smarter
lel, no. Not because they're smarter.
my Pure bred German shepherd was 1200$ . thanks to my brother in laws Military discount i got her for 800$ though.
careful though. they take a lot of training and need a firm hand.
Very energetic and love to jump and nip.
They have a long "puppy" period(1-2 years) so you better have some patience.
Welp, Goodbye new computer, hi new puppy.
I expected them to be around $700.
the reason you train a cat the same way you can a dog is because cats' brains aren't able to process the same amount of information as dogs, not because of some "fight the power" attitude you've constructed and projected on to them.
>they're less intelligent than dogs
No by any means.
Dogs are more prone to obey because they were designed to do that. They are loyal, but they pay the price of being an extension of their owners desires. Cats are somewhat selfish but more independent and their characters vary A LOT between them. And yes, they have different personalities as well: clingy cats, shy cats, strong willed ones, lighthearted, motherfuckers, etc. You won't never two cats with the same character, and you can't change it.
>dogs are used by the police and military because they're smarter
Its exactly the opposite, if they were smart enough, they wouldn't do the shit they make them do.
You'd never get a cat to be a servant. You ever see a cat return a stick? "Hey, man! You threw the stick, you go get it yourself! I'm busy! If you wanted the stick so bad, why'd you throw it away in the first place?"
You can get one cheaper.
My sister got 2 year old for next to nothing because it was a failed police dog. It had all the training and is well diciplined it's just that you don't get a puppy and you have to quickly assert that you're the new boss.
Dogs are funner to play with.
> they don't feel emotions
Nigga, they do feel things, and also they even have their own temperaments. They also has cognition, although it's not as developed as humans. This is what zoo-psychology studies. Otherwise, you are right, most people are ignorant that their pets are not self-conscious, and don't have personality.
I'm not saying that dogs don't have personalities, but they're influenced by their owners far more than cats are. The only aspect of a cat's behavior that is strongly controlled by its owner is how social it is, but even that is iffy.
A dog will look at a finger pointing at something and look at the thing the finger is pointing at. No other animal does that except a few rare cats, not even chimpanzees. It requires a knowledge that the finger (a specific gesture) is pointing on the behalf on the human (which is directing its thoughts and attention towards an object), a knowledge of following the direction of the finger (tracking line of sight) and ending at the object in question (the focus of the human's intentions). It will then look at the object, understanding that you have indicated that you are focusing on a particular part of the environment that you want the dog to focus on as well. Every dog can be trained to do this, if they do not already do this instinctively. And you know what the craziest part is? They can do it right back to us too:
I'm not sure, the two dogs I had were brought in from a family member and found on the street.
I'd take a guess between 70-250 but I know jack shit. I don't think the Humane Society is that expensive since they want the animals to find a good home and they take care of any medical problems the animal might have before making them available.
Cat + laser pointer = hours of fun
They are less intelligent than dogs though
I know that the smartest dog, a border collie, is about as smart as a baby and that is absolutely amazing, with some genetic modification we could create a dog that was self aware.
>have to quickly assert that you're the new boss.
This. important thing with dogs is for them to know you're master and they're your little bitch.
my shepherd won't even bat a eyelash at my two cats since she knows they're above her.
cats are just boring furry things that don't really mind your existance
dogs were formed to be the perfect companion to humans for thousands of years
A cat is like a piece of furniture where a dog is an extension of your soul
not a lot of dogs in anime because asians don't have souls
hence dogs in asia are treated either as cats or food
Not even a discussion
No as much as dogs
This reflects the dog's origins in wolves. They're pack animals, so naturally they're going to be more well-equipped in certain forms of social intelligence. There's an evolutionary benefit in a packleader directing the pack's attention to something.
Cats have are almost exclusively solitary creatures and as such don't benefit from something like that.
It reflects it, but wolves don't understand pointing fingers either. It's solely derived from the dog-human interaction of tens of thousands of years. It's bretty fuckin cool
>a dog is an extension of your soul
And that's why cats are a million times better. I don't want an extension of my soul and I don't want a servant with me. I want a free companion beside me, not an extension.
>they don't feel emotions
Own a dog before spewing shit as fact.
>wow cats are NEETs just like me
>hurr cats are smart because they fucking do nothing but walk around and rub against stuff
>meanwhile dogs hunt, sniff out drugs, build huts, and lead the blind
>I want a free companion beside me, not an extension.
Get a girlfriend, loser.
This is the most retarded post I've read all month. Non-human animal intelligence cannot be comprehended on human basis, because none of them are humans. People unable to understand this should cease to live.
I'm not even going to elaborate on the issue of self awareness bullshit.
I wish dogs washed themselves and could use their paws the same way cats do. It's annoying that dogs get greasy and nasty if you don't wash them every so often.
dogs can fucking do loads of jobs and fight along side you
meanwhile a cat just rubs into you like a fucking retard, also get a gf you beta fuck
>implying dogfags don't prefer fucking their dogs over females
>implying cats are capable of being much more alpha than dogs.
And also, go back to /b/.
You are really, really stupid.
Like I agree that dogs are smarter but, the reason you gave is just fucking retarded.
>doing things and struggling = intelligence
And this is precisely why as a species we're the absolute dumbest.
why would anyone think a little stupid ass cat could fight a german shepard or pitbull?
we should straight up domesticate lions like the Russians did with those foxes
that would be pretty fucking neato
On this note, what are the most dog-like cat breeds and cat-like dog breeds?
An average person also can't fight a German shepherd or Pitbull intending to kill without using weapons.
>wow me and my cat are so smart because all we do is loaf around
>us NEETs are so cool amirite?
Can a cat pick up a stick and bring it back after you throw it?
>dog-like cat breeds
>cat-like dog breeds
Who is that on Kojima's phone case? I think it's Ocelot, but I can't tell for sure.
>my pet can beat up your pet
Think it's time this thread should die.
where I live the county fire department pays you for shooting wild cats
cats are literally pests here
they're worse than rats
and if you do want to bag a few cats a dog is your best companion in doing so
not that either is superior or anything
That'd be cool, but tigers/jaguars/leopards/cougars would be cooler.
an average person will instictivley use a weapon because it's our nature, cats on the otherhand are just worthless shits
Get out of here you un-virgin.
Japanese Chens are easy the most cat-like. I have two and they always lie on the back of the loveseat looking out the window, and clean their faces with their paws.
Do you know nothing of ancient Egypt?
Cats have also been pets for thousands of years you bloody fool.
NEETs exist as a non-fitting group inside normal human society while still being part of it. They're crippled with psychological problems and are not living a "free" life. Hermits are what are closest to cats. Nice try though.
Dogs: Can kill children
Cats: Can't kill children
Being humans' little bitches is part of being beta. Also, don't undervalue a cat's ferocity when he or she is in the defensive. Against a dog 4 times bigger, he'll probably die if attacked by a herd, but the dog will be fucking blind or have the face destroyed.
They are probably virgin. No one reacts this way if you're not an insecure fag with a dog licking your balls
Actually yes, but you can train anything to play fetch. Cats, dogs, parrots, chinchillas, sharks... you name it, you can train it with a clicker and some treats
Out of curiosity, where is this?
Yeah cat population can easily get out of hand if they're not spayed/neutered
Well that's cool to know, too bad that's one of those breeds with bug eyes
>an average person will instictivley use a weapon
I guess the average person has a weapon stashed inside their ass. Feels bad not being an average person, man. I wish I could carry an AK inside my ass.
Hermits are NEETs
Can you fire an AK with your ass?
Cats can kill children.
That's pretty sad but understandable. Wild cats kill out of sport and can destroy an ecosystem if left alone. I just hope it's humane. If you're gonna kill an animal, you best do it quick, clean, and for a purpose.
I'm starting to remember all those animal abuse gifs and getting mad.
But cat can kill childrens.
dogs are objectively better morally for withholding their abilities
>taking ourselves out of the foodchain
>dominating every single continent
>if you want to eat any animal that exist we could probably arrange that
>only species ever to write poetry
>literally have to actively try not to kill all the other species because too alpha
nigger you did not just insult the intelligence of humans
Did you even read my post you fuckface?
Only the bigger ones, really, but the owners would have to be retarded if they didn't train their dog right. Dogs naturally hang around children.
Also, some children are so borderline retarded these days I wouldn't be surprised if they let a cat sit on their face long enough to get smothered by it.
>talk shit about dogs being beta for fighting and working with others
>cats still cant do shit
Going to say this, don't get a purebred or a show-strain. That breed is notorious for back and hip issues because their backs slope. The working variety, like what police and armed force uses, generally don;t have that kind of complication,
Fuck you for reminding me of shovel dog.
>Being humans' little bitches is part of being beta. Also, don't undervalue a cat's ferocity when he or she is in the defensive. Against a dog 4 times bigger, he'll probably die if attacked by a herd, but the dog will be fucking blind or have the face destroyed.
Reminds me of the time the neighbor's rather large dog cornered one of our tiny crippled cats
the cat came out fine but the dog's owner had to take a trip to the vet to its face stitched up
>pathetic, stupid catfags think firearms are the only types of weapons
cats kill babies by accident because they're fucking stupid and lie on top of their faces because it's warm, not that they wouldn't kill all humans if they could but they can't since they're pussy ass niggas
dogs are so moral and perceptive that they understand that killing other creatures is wrong and should only be done in self defense or in extreme hunger
>cats can literally only sit around begging for scraps for a living
>call dogs beta for having astonishing abilities
I dont,i was thinking of adopt a old dog and a puppy, no matter what race meanwhile they are big dogs.
The problem will be get a name for them.
>Being a slave is an astonishing ability
dog feed only on shame
Can't we all just agree that rabbits are the best pet?
>Easier to litter train/less shit to clean.
>Can't bite off your arm or claw out your eye if it ever attacks you.
>Can die of loneliness/the most loving pet.
>cats can literally only sit around begging for scraps for a living
What? Cats are much better at hunting down their own food than domesticated dogs are. On the own, dogs will rummage through trash while cats will hunt.
>having the ability to work as a valuable member of human society makes you a slave
>meanwhile even the best cats are just filthy fucking beggars and literal slaves
>calling slave-traits astonishing
Nietzsche was right.
a lot of hip dysplasia issues can happen before the age of 1 because people play too roughly or take them on walks way too soon.
at least that's what my vet said when she was admiring how healthy my shepherd was.
>Dogs have larger brains because they are social because being social requires them to process a lot of information.
God damn the media is fucking retarded, Why not twist the story to say "Introverts are not as smart as extroverts"
Dogs are better at socializing, no one will argue this but, this doesn't make them smarter as a single unit.
We have known for a long time that the size of an animals brain is not completely related to the ability to do complex problem solving...
Otherwise dolphins and whales would have found a way to tell us to stop fucking killing them.
>trying to relate physical abilities with being alpha
Yeah. That's why in ancient Egypt the Pharaoh, who did nothing but sit around and fuck bitches all day, was not the king and muscular slaves ruled the country.
>eating mice and filth is better than eating delicious human treats
if you didn't mean that you wouldn't be trying so hard to deny it, faggot. Just say 'cats are more fun to tease'.
It seems you don't know what slave means
>Easier to litter train/less shit to clean.
You mean smaller shit.
Atleast they are balls and solid, unlike the random diarrhea dog shit.
rabbits and rodents in general are actually extremely unsuited to be pets, it's pretty strange that we still keep them
Chinchillas make fine pets.
An hour late, but there it is
i feel that tv has a higher chance of falling and killing the baby then the dog does.
All those things are completely irrelevant though. You're simply deluding yourself into thinking we're more important than anything else, like a lot of other human beings, because you have to compensate for the emptiness of the quasi-infinite superficiality our lives have.
The reality is that you still have to struggle all your life (in meaningless, man-made struggles too; life-or-death means everything but grades do not mean anything) and then in the end you get old, get afflicted and ultimately die (afterlife existing or not notwhitstanding).
Which doesn't mean that we should imitate the existence of another animal species -doing so is inhuman and stupid, as stupid as expecting a hermit crab to appreciate rockets when it has absolutely no reason to appreciate them- but I laugh and will keep laughing at anyone who asserts a certain species is superior to the other because they have computers.
Also we didn't domesticate nature you idiot, earthquakes, tsunami and diseases are all nature and will fuck you up.
Cat's can be trained as well.
Geologist here, I can confirm that it's only a matter of time before we begin to domesticate earthquakes. You thought pet rocks were cool? Wait until you can get your own pedigree fault line.
>not wanting a rocket crab
Here's the thing, a lot of mangaka prefer cats because they work a lot and don't have to give them as much attention.
I fixed your watermark.
Also fish are the best pet because you don't need to clean hair and shit off your coach every week and they're the least expensive to take care of.
>and they're the least expensive to take care of.
what kinda cheapo fish do you have
I didn't like that much. Too much treat baiting.
Funny, most of the lap dogs I have were content to sleep in the same room as me for a good chunk of the day.
no they don't
they can't be trained at all
any animal that you need to keep in a cage or a tank is not a good pet
animals like that, rabbits and rodents, basically any herbivore, does not have the mentality that a pet needs
they feel the need to dig and flee so they will actively pursue escape/the destruction of your house
since they only need to eat plants, basically their brain has evolved without the need to hunt, unlike dogs or cats, not needing to hunt leaves out many of the important elements that makes a good pet, essentially what I'm saying is that they're too fucking stupid to be pets
Dogs are stupid.
But you need to take them out, eventually.
Cat's can just lie around and ask for food twice a day, that's all you need to do for them.
My neighbors tried to sue me because my cat killed their jack rustle, cats are fucking vicious if they are cornered or you are in their territory.
They run everywhere and are annoying.
What's wrong with a cat named niggerman?
>any animal that you need to keep in a cage or a tank is not a good pet
That's why you take them out of the cage and play with them.
I remember when we kept chinchillas they would wake me up at night when they would run in their porcelain wheel. I thought it was thunder every time.
Never said they were as good as dogs, just that it's possible.
Cat's aren't social creatures, so the fact they they can even understand commands of any kind is amazing
>There are people on /a/ who don't like cats
Dogs smell horrible and if you try to wash them they smell even worse.
Cats are practically odorless and wash themselves.
Cats are refined killing machines, it just happens that they're a lot less dangerous when they're the same size as a small dog.
Cat breeds just a little larger like Maine Coon/Norwegian Forest (~20-25lbs) are bad news for a much larger range of prey, let alone if you go to 50lbs+ (bobcats, etc).
I got the reference but didn't have the pic.
>Cats are practically odorless
Cat piss is the foulest smelling thing an animal can produce. I'll take skunk wuff over cat piss.
Toilet train your cat (yes, it's possible and not even difficult) and you don't have to worry about that.
here's a fun fact, cat's shit has this Toxoplasma parasite that if you're around for long enough will make you autistic
What if it decides to get uppity and piss on my bed?
I've owned cats for over two decades and that sort of thing never happens unless the cat has a serious medical problem or the owner hasn't been keeping the litterbox reasonably clean.
Cat are independents, having a dog is like having a retard child that you cant leave alone for more than 24 hours, i can leave my cat without food and water for a fucking week and he just kill some birds and drink water for somewhere.
>I've owned cats for over two decades
>Cats are practically odorless
You've become completely inured to their acute rankness.
I have never had that happen and i have had a fair few cats.
When i pissed off my cat when i was a child it used to piss in my lego box though.
Dogs are far more likely to do that since they urinate when they're scared or excited.
Cats rarely piss outside of their litter box/toilet if they're properly trained.
Keep a dog inside 24/7 and see how your house smells.
Different anons m8
I don't know about that, but it does make you a little less beta at the cost of a some motor skills
You can teach a small dog to use a litter box.
I've only ever met one dog and it was at a rescue shelter, it had been heavily abused and kept in a cage pretty much it's entire life.
meanwhile I can smell my cat loving neighbor's house from here
>Making you autistic
Yea but, if you own a pit bull it will murder at least 1 baby a week
>Dog's seem to be the walking liabilities
Apostrophes are not used to form plural nouns.
>Sees one house episode
>Autistic kid who happens to be infected with Toxoplasma parasite
>Toxoplasma parasite causes autism
You are retarded
I don't know man, I can always tell when entering a house if the owners keep a dog there, they seem to have a very distinct scent to them, maybe it's because I've been around cats my entire life, but I don't really notice theirs.
the difference is killing babies is exactly what pit bulls were bred to do
cats were bred to kill mice and shit now all they do is endanger the biodiversity amongst birds
I motherfucking hate cats.
>Burps that obnoxious fur everywhere
>Always dropping his shitty white fur on my black clothes
>Worst smelling shit ever and DON'T' even make me start about that putrescent piss
>Selfish little sluts
>Always bringing fucking cockroaches home and whichever filthy bugs they'll find outside
>killing qt birds just for the joy of it
Fuck birds, only faggots like birds
But dogs eat birds too.
Only if you're a dumbass that doesn't train or socialize it.
Hell, any dog can be dangerous if you don't train or discipline it.
Cat are made for kill and are the only animal that kill for fun, such a good life, i want to be a cat ;3
Dogs don't hunt those, they mainly eat already dead shit
But dogs don't actively hunt them, can't climb trees, and are usually fenced in.
Dogs can kill humans and hurt them badly,
Cats the mos dangerous thing that they can do to a human is hurt your hand.
I don't watch western television, I read that it makes you more introverted and less likely to spend time with other people, as well as more clumsy and more likely to get in a car crash, since it has many of these symptom I used autism as a catch them all term even though it isn't entirely correct
Dogs differently from cats will accept being scolded and actually feel bad about it. They also can actually learn not to.
I don't see untrained cats killing babies.
If people didn't own dogs (outside farmers because dogs are pretty fucking good tools) more babies would be alive today
I bet you're a gun grabber as well
My aunt's dog attacked my sister despite her going over to their house plenty of times, fuck dogs.
my aunt's cat killed my little sister by sleeping on her face as a baby
I killed a cat by sleeping on top of it.
A cat killed me and now I'm ghost Banri
I killed sleeping by putting on top of it.
How terrible of a parent do you even have to be to let your daughter get killed by someone's cat.
It's just mind boggling, and if this is true, which I doubt it is, your parents are terrible.
Cats can control overpopulations of animals and pests. The Europeans caused the black plague when started killing cats who said they were diabolical, so leaving the number of rats grow throughout Europe, causing the expansion of the Black Death
The dogs are only good in the fields to defend the cattle, other than that they are useless, even worse when they are wild, because they kill livestock and people.
That wouldn't have happened if you had a cat
Cat's are the defenders of moe.
Well, yeah I was fat at the time and it was a kitty. Completely unintentional and made me feel terrible for days to come.
That shit actually happened. Worst childhood experience.
I remember in the dub that Haruko said the creator preferred dogs.
>dog playing tug of war
>Jealous cat interrupts.
No, here's a real guardian.
I forced my cat to go on a walk with me and it attacked a dog that someone was talking for a walk, the dog panicked ran into traffic and died.
I still remember the guy crying.
cats shouldn't be taken for walks.
I felt pain.
Fuck you faggot, I fucking dare you to say that that fucking dog was playing with my sister.
You're fucking retarded
Rabbits are shit tier so are birds.
>a fucking crazy ass dog who can be trained to kill
Yeah, until it turns shit-crazy and attacks you instead.
Both of you shouldn't be taken for a walk
no, the dog probably attacked your sister, but your sister was probably being a dick
for instance I was seriously bitten by a dog when I was 4, like seriously seriously, I had to go to the hospital, still have marks, but I was cornering it while playing the flute so I deserved it
I was talking about the gif faglord.
>but your sister was probably being a dick
She was walking to school and the stupid bitch aunt left her gate open and the dog attacked her for no reason, then she said the same damn thing even though my brother was there and he said they were just walking.
Fuck you and fuck her and her dog, bunch of retarded cunts
>I was talking about the gif faglord
How the fuck do you know it was playing turbonerd. Keep being a retarded cunt.
>less shit to clean
Fuck no. For having a vet sister, I grew with all sort of pets indoors; cats, dogs, birds, hamsters, parrots, fishes, tortoises, bats, possums, macaw and rabbits.
The rabbit would always leave this annoying trail of shit behind and the piss is almost as bad as cat piss. Also would ruin every piece he'd find by his reach. I've lost many sandals and flip flops thanks to this fucker.
Lovecraft was also depressed and lonely, which is the real reason why he liked cats. Cat owners are always sad and lonely fucks who make up a million reasons why cats are better while never leaving their rooms.
Dogs > cats, always.
>Not wanting a merciless killing machine
Llamas are cool
>Trying to generalize with just one example
I am really sure there have been thousands of people who owned dogs and committed suicide. Not less than people having cats, birds or rabbits.
All this screams is desperation and someone to give you attention. Not surprised coming from a dog "lover".
And most dog owner are irresponsible fuck wits who don't like putting efforts into relationships.
Each side has there own problems.
Large dog owners who train their dogs are bros though.
>Not all of 'em
Your dog will eat you if you die alone with it.
I'm pretty sure if Lovecraft were to be alive he would have a closet full of Fedoras
Cats do that too, you know.
>Dog killing a puma
No fucking way, cats run when there is a chance will lose a fight, it would have headed for the nearest tree.
Anything will do that if they're hungry enough
So does everything.
They do that to decrease their own body temperature
Would you cannibalism /a/?
If i had a source for fire, sure. apprently we taste like salty pork
>If I see that fucking cat one more time...
in a extreme situation, probably. I'd like to cook it though.
>not having a bro cat who will always come to comfort you and leave you alone when you want them to
You guys are too clingy.
is he ok
I'm the most easily disgusted motherfucker ever. I don't eat any kind of animals organs/sea food for finding it extremely nasty and gross. I think I'd rather die than falling that low.
Look just because crustaceans are just large sea insects doesn't mean they aren't tasty.
Yes he's fine, after that he went and had a laugh with the guy with the camera
No, I meant the...
