Cats vs. Dogs

By: Rayna Zhang & Elaine


When people hear the word “pets” people react with different reactions, people who love pets and know a lot will be smiling, but people who just can’t stand it will be frowning and saying bad points about it. But in this article, we will make sure that you won’t be hearing all the good things about pets, or all the terrible things about pets.

Cats have advantages and of course disadvantages as well. First, we will talk about cat’s advantages. Cats love being clean, they will wash themselves every day, and so the owner can wash them every three months. They also can provide health benefits for us, from the article “10 Reasons Why Cats Make Better Pets Than Dogs”, the article wrote “It has been said that owning a pet can reduce stress and make you live longer” But their weaknesses from the article “10 Most Common Reasons Dogs Are Better Than Cats” are they won’t help you get fit. Unlike dogs you will need to go outside for a walk twice a day. Another disadvantage is that cats can’t really help you with things. For example cats don’t help polices do things like helping them find a missing child or be blind people's eyes.

Cats also have a good side; they have self-control which cat owners will not go crazy trying to train them like dog owners do. Cats also eat less than dogs and are cheaper to buy as a kitten. Cats are also very curious but mischievous andself-entertaining; they like to play with plants and balls of yarn, hang on yarn made clothe and tore them to shreds, but do not worry about it, it will only take a week waiting for them to adapt to their surroundings and to calm down. But their cat fur needs to be groomed well so fur won’t fly around and make people allergic to cat fur. But people who are dog owners are probably allergic to cats, so they decideto own a dog instead. But that is their own perspective of looking at a cat, a person who owns a pet needs to be careful of choosing a good pet which you will not be allergic to, and a house breaker.

We will talk about dogs now, the article “10 Most Common Reasons Dogs Are Better Than Cats” wrote,” They’ll tilt their heads, trying to understand every one of your words while trying to make you feel better when you’re sad.” This shows that dogs are loyal to us, they want to make their owner happy. Getting a dogs weakness is that according to the article “10 Reasons Why Cats Make Better Pets Than Dogs” it wrote that “you know they take up a ton of space. Between their size, their love for stretching out into everyone's personal space, the room they need to play and exercise, and their stuff (such as a dog bed or dog toys)” this shows that having a dog is quite messy. My own opinion about dogs is that they drool, take up a lot of space, and need to get walks, and so I recommend this kind of pet to people who are active, and whose house is big. We also have done a survey and a lot of people preferred to choose dogs, and those are the things about dogs.

In conclusion, both pets have bad points and good points, but they both have big responsibilities. But it also decides on life issues such as allergies. I would say, in my opinion, it doesn't matter, do you know why? Because this is your decision. You might be more responsible than when you are little when deciding on pets. In our opinion, it will be fine if you choose to buy any pets anytime if you like them, as long as your heart knows what to choose.
