Day 25 of the 31 Days of Books Giveaway: Are You A Cat Person Or A Dog Person?
January 25th, 2014

Congratulations to Diane Patricia Diamond, who won yesterday’s drawing! I’ll be emailing Diane to arrange delivery of her choice of book. This is Diane’s second time winning, which puts her in the Hall of Fame!

Most people consider themselves either a cat person or a dog person. Which are you and why?

I’m a cat person. I like their fluffiness and the way they curl up in my lap and purr. Cats are very finicky animals. There’s a saying: “Dogs have owners, cats have staff.” I have no doubt this is one of the reasons the ancient Egyptians worshiped them. However, I feel special when the cat chooses to come to me. The secret to cats: Let them go when they want to leave, and they will always come back to you.

I do like dogs, don’t get me wrong. I grew up with dogs. We always had one, and to this day, my mom still has one. I just prefer cats, is all. You can go away for a weekend and leave enough food and water down for your cat, no big deal. But the dog needs someone to take him out, and if you leave food down for the weekend, it will be gone the first day.

What about you? Are you a cat person or a dog person? Comment to be included in a drawing to win a paperback title from my backlist!

    I use to be both, cat and dog. Though when we got a cat two years ago, the thing changed me. So I am now a full-time dog person.

    I have four dachshunds (weener dogs) and they are a trip! The males like to play musical chairs with my lap. The youngest male is my shadow. I go to the bathroom, HE must go with me.

    And when it’s bed time it’s a puppy pile! Last night was funny. I grabbed a blanket and pillow. Then I went to the couch to do some reading of review books when next thing I knew I had two dogs under my blanket, I had another on my lap. Add to that three 2 1/2 month old weener puppies. It was a trip.

    Definitely a cat person.we have three and love their different personalities. Can’t imagine a home without a furballs in it. One gets red rimmed eyes when it’s time for bed. Always purrs. One just loves to play and to sit in the window to watch birds and outside kittens. One is pretty much a loner but loves to bathe the others.

    I never had a dog or car growing up but in 2009 that all changed.

    Finally growing up and having a house of my own I decided I needed critters. So when a coworker rescued five stray kittens, I took two. They are my girls and so funny! Interrupting my work on the computer, wrestling in me when I’m trying to sleep and just snuggling and cuddling. They behave more like dogs and come when called. I kind of blame my puppy, Nicholas, for that. They learned the commands while he did and still follow them to this day!

    In 2010 I got my first puppy. Nicholas is a black lab and came home at 8-weeks old. But he wasn’t an ordinary puppy, he was a guide dog in training. He had to learn quickly to behave at home and certain commands by certain ages. By the time he was six months old he knew 27 commands!

    Sadly, guide work was not in his cards. But he proved to be a true working dog and was the only one of ten dogs tested to be chosen for urban search and rescue. He was the youngest to complete his training and now lives with his partner in Albany, New York and I was lucky enough to see him in action this past summer. Two and a half years after I’d last seen him.

    Right now I’m so busy with work and writing, but I’m desperate to raise another puppy! Now and then I borrow other peoples puppies-in-training to get my fix, but there’s nothing like having one if your own.

  5. I have two dogs and three cats. We love them all equally!

      My husband wants a dog, but our house is not really set up for it. Someday. I don’t mind a dog as long as someone else walks him. It’s too much like having a baby, and been there, done that!

  6. Janie McGaugh says:

    I’m a cat person, pretty much for the same reasons you are.

  7. Beth says:

    I am a cat person totally though many, many years ago, there was a dog at some point but I rather have a cat!

  8. Adria says:

    I love all animals but I am truly a dog person at heart. They loyalty and unconditional love that I get from my dog is incomparable. I relate to dogs better too. I can work with them and I just love having a constant companion that is loyal to only ME for once. Lol

    I do have 3 cats even though I’m VERY allergic to them. They were all abandoned and I was not about to leave them to die. Now they drive me nuts on a daily basis and I always have to have allergy medication on hand.

    • Debra Mullins says:

      My son was allergic to the cats, but over time his allergies lessened. However, now that he has moved out on his own, he starts to get a little sniffly when he comes by because of our cats. I keep the allergy meds standing by.

    I’m a cat person! They are so cuddly and make brilliant scarves. (Wrapped around my neck alive, not using their fur, that came out wrong! 😛 )Purring is the best noise, so calming, and they don’t smell as bad as some dogs 😀 Cats are just perfect.

    • Debra Mullins says:

      I’m with you on the smell thing. One of our cats used to perch on my son’s shoulder like a parrot when he was an itty bitty kitten. He grew to be 17 lbs and couldn’t figure out why that didn’t work anymore! LOL

  10. Lory says:

    Yes, I’m a cat lover (despite the fact that I have asthma) I love it when my cat sleeps beside me or even rub my leg whenever I come home from work. I don’t even care if people hear me talking to him.
