    Dogs Rule, Cats Drool...




    Dog owners are much happier than cat owners, survey finds

    But when you break the data down by pet type – cats, dogs or both – a stunning divide emerges: Dog owners are about twice as likely as cat owners to say they’re very happy, with people owning both falling somewhere in between.

    Dog people, in other words, are slightly happier than those without any pets. Those in the cat camp, on the other hand, are significantly less happy than the pet-less. And having both appears to cancel each other out happiness-wise. (Since someone’s bound to ask, it isn’t possible to do this same type of analysis for say, rabbit owners or lizard owners or fish owners, since there aren’t enough of those folks in the survey to make a statistically valid sample).

    They only think they're happier. It's just that they pick up the goofy, stinky, gallumphing, knocking-small-children-down-as-they-beeline-for-their-food-dish behaviour of their dogs.


    Some dog owners even start to look like their dogs. This guy sure doesn't look happy.

    Cat owners, on the other hand, take on their feline companions' characteristics of serenity, peaceful enjoyment of their surroundings, cleanliness, and the ability to look on the people around them as lesser, necessary evils.

    And, frankly, it's the dogs who drool.

    There is no such thing as a cat owner.

    Cats fool people into becoming their servants.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Yeah cat's don't need a reason for being a jerk because they just are






    As for stinky... Two words: litter box

    And cats that cough up a hairball on your bed, couch or antique rug.

    I didn't say I hate dogs.

    I just like cats better.

    Intelligent people also are more likely to report being unhappy. Just saying... connect the dots...
