Re: Cat people vs dog people personalities

Am very much a cat person. I love animals in general and would have loved to live on a farm. Strange thing is that cats tend to pick me. Still have not yet figured this out, but I love it.

Actually, it is said, that cats pick owners whereas owners pick their dogs. I would said, this is fairly acurate. I adopted a cat from the forum and the furry creature is rather bizarre (she eats wet food with her left paw ) and most definitely fits me.

We have a dog that's somewhat cat-like. Independent, sometimes a little aloof. Lots of spitz-like dogs are this apparently.

Anyway, in the US, we would vote blue, neither of us are extroverted and we both have been to university and beyond. And Lily sits on the furniture.

Just the opposite here. Our cat thinks he's a dog.

Goes for walks with us, comes when called, etc.

Re: Cat people vs dog people personalities

One of my neighbors walks her cat every night. She walks through the play ground and her cat follows her, and if not, she picks it up and takes it with her. It's... interesting.

Re: Cat people vs dog people personalities

My cat used to walk into the pub in Wales to get me whenever he was hungry! I would then have to walk him home and feed him before I could return. He would also jump on the table in the pub and help himself to the int of anyone drinking Guiness!! Really miss him!!

Our cat goes for walks with us. She follows us when we leave the house but pretends she was just planning to go that way anyway and it has nothing to do with us.

.
we have 3 cats, 2 are cats, one thinks he is a dog. instead of roaming around alone like the other 2, who simply ignore us when called, he spends all his time with the dogs and also actually comes when called. Might be a colour thing though.

Could be because I had a brother and sister. She was tortoise shell he was black and he was more intrested in the dog, who was also black. Would even sleep with him!!

It's surprisingly fun. I trained my cat to walk with me, or on a leash. He would come out almost anywhere in public (shopping etc.) and just perch on my shoulders. It was a dear shame to have to give him up.

Re: Cat people vs dog people personalities

Depending on the size of the cat, the leash doesn't seem quite so odd...

Does she prominantly tie a Robidog bag to the prop leash she's carrying?

Re: Cat people vs dog people personalities

Here's another big fluffy cat on a leash - it does work but you have to allow for the cat walking you and not vice versa...

I heard this "cat people are control freaks" a million times, and I still can't make any sense out of it. How come a control freak will choose the worst possible pet to exert control over ? He/she might as well adopt a racoon or a bat.
Real control freaks go for brown owls.

Re: Cat people vs dog people personalities

Have you ever had a conversation with someone and part way through started to wonder how many cats they live with?

It can actually sound pretty good, depending on how it's described.
