Pooch or Puss?


Sunday 11 May, 2014 by Uncle Spike

I gotta admit I’m more of of a pooch-lover myself. I have no qualms about our small feline friends, but if you have ever had both in your life, you have to concur that whilst they might both belong in the ‘pet’ category, they are so utterly different.

For followers who are non-pet lovers, you may switch stations at this point (Mr P)

Not wanting to kick off some heated debate here, but dogs are just simple creatures, bloody intelligent for sure, but like us men, we are not that complex 🙂

And as if to prove my point, read this excerpt from a dog’s diary…



So now on to the felines. Now, for starters, feline sounds a bit like female or feminine…. hmm, well as a matter of fact, cats, or “catégorie d’les chats” are definitely complex and crazy creatures. They might come in boy and girl versions, but them puss-features are devious little feckers.

And as if to prove my point, read this excerpt from a cat’s diary…

    I love the dog and cat diaries. I laugh out loud every time I read them. I’ve lived with both cats and dogs and the diaries have managed to capture the experiences very well 🙂

    I currently have a cat who exhibits some dog-like behaviour. Cat or dog, they definitely add texture to our lives!!

    I would have to go with dogs since they seem friendlier and more playful than cats. Cats don’t seen to like me much and I had one hiss at me long ago.


  3. Cats for me every time, just love them, so intelligent. Can’t stand dogs, dumb, smelly things that bite!

      Thought you’d bite (no pun) 🙂


      • I completely understand why you would keep a dog on your farm. What I am completely incapable of comprehending is why anyone would choose to live with one in a small house in a domestic environment. Cats take up little space and only interact a couple of times a day at mealtimes. They are also happy to go out all night. The down side of cats is how many birds they kill in the gardens.


    • The thing is that if a dumb, smelly person (who bites) owns a dog, then that’s how it will turn out. But if an intelligent, clean person, who’s kind and has manners owns a dog, then their dogs is most likely to learn by example. My Labrador is intelligent, just as all the other dogs of that breed are. If they were dumb, they would not act as companions and helpers to blind or deaf people.

      Did you ever hear of a “guide cat for blind people”, or “hearing cats for deaf people”? The best a cat would do for such people is dump a dead or half-dead mouse on their feet, leave slippery vomit on the floor, or dig claws into their laps.

      My dog hates cats ever since being attacked on several occasions by a vicious stinky tom that was bigger than her. Before that, she liked cats.


      • Dog owners are so predictable!

        If I hear that guide dogs for the blind argument then I will scream!

        I don’t mind that you like the dumb, stinking animals, I just object to the fact that you think every one else should too.

        Dogs foul pavements, they pester people, they kill children, every year they account for thousands of bites that have to be paid for at taxpayers expense at the hospital.

        When did a cat last kill a child?

        If you want to share your life with a dog that is your business, all I ask is that you respect the views of those who choose not to.

        I don’t like them – get over it!

        • Only expressing my opinion, just as you were. Sorry if you took it as a lecture. Around where I live people get a hefty fine imposed on them for allowing their dogs to foul pavements. It’s all down to responsible ownership. I agree with some of your points and accept that you don’t like dogs. No need to get shirty. Have a good day.

    Thank you for my first laugh of the day. We have both dogs and cats and a bird. Two of our cats think they’re dogs. The boy cats come running to greet me when I come home. The two females act more like cats. One of our dogs, our Japanese Chin, acts more like a cat. She’s super picky with her food, prefers fish over everything (especially salmon) and would rather be beside you or hanging out nearby than on your lap (the one exception to that is when we’re returning from a hike, she sits on my lap to let me know she enjoyed it). All of them are vastly entertaining 🙂

    Well! To be a bit serious here (at least trying to), I like both dogs and cats. Many chooses either / or, but off course I have to be different. O_o

    If you make me choose which character I resemble the most (not as serious here) I would say (off course) I’m a little bit of both.
    But much more like a cat…

    … though I had chosen a more easily readable font! What’s the point of writing something if it’s difficult to read!


...waiting to hear from you...
