I'd like to go on record and say I have nothing against dogs. In fact, I grew up with dogs in the home, but sometimes caring for a dog is harder for me. This lead me to tell my sister's boyfriend that when I get my own place again, I want a cat. After giving me a look, he said, "A cat ain't gonna protect you, you need a pitbull". Um well now, cats are cleaner, catch mice, but dogs can break chains/run off, among other things. Being the way I am, a cat is a good idea.
So, what do you think, is it unmanly to prefer cats over dogs?
