We Pets Guides have gotten together for some friendly rivalry, and are each featuring a special on our site about the comparative value of cats versus dogs as pets. My contribution is 10 Reasons Why Cats Are Better Than Dogs.

Don't get me wrong; I like dogs - when I was growing up my family always had dogs. Although I had one or two cats, I wasn't really crazy about them until the boy I married introduced me to them. Today, if my living circumstances were different, I'd add a dog to our mix - maybe one like the cute little Pug featured here. But our four cats have never been around dogs and would never tolerate it. So all-in-all, since I have to choose, I absolutely think that cats make better pets than dogs. About that "pets" thing - most of us consider our cats as family members, rather than pets, so we're only using that word for brevity.
Cat Lovers, We're Outnumbered!
The competition is off and running as Amy Shojai, About.com's Puppies Guide, has contributed her fun piece, 10 Reasons Puppies Are Better than Cats. Jenna Stregowski, About.com Guide to Dogs, makes some pretty convincing argument for d*gs too: 10 Reasons Dogs Are Better Than Cats. Your supportive comments here on my blog are welcome - I'm sure you'll come up with many more reasons, and you're also welcome to comment on the Puppies blog, and/or the Dogs blog.
