Dog vs Cat

A friend posted this in reply to me whinging about my dog.
Where the dog and cat came from.
A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has provided the answer to “Where do pets come from?”
Adam said, “Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with me every day. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me.”
And God said, “No problem! I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are & will love you as I do, in spite of yourself.”
And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam. And it was a good animal. And God was pleased. And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail. And Adam said, “Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal.” And God said, “No problem! Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, “and you will call him DOG.” And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him.
And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was content and wagged his tail.
After a while, it came to pass that Adam’s guardian angel came to the Lord and said, “Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believes he is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but perhaps too well.”
And the Lord said, “No problem! I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not always worthy of adoration.”
And God created Cat to be a companion to Adam. And Cat would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat’s eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being. And Adam learned humility.
And God was pleased.
And Adam was greatly improved.
And Dog was happy.
And Cat didn’t give a shit.
I reckon that cats are infintitly better than dogs...I've grown sick of thier pestering ways, and the fact they feel the need to defend thier territory. Yapping, biting, following you around and generally driving people to distraction! Seriously what is so good about that? You can train them to chase sticks and balls...well guess what I have a cat that does that! A cat shows affection, and you can be sure that you really deserve it when they do They don't take up all the bed if you let them sleep with you, and they don't whine at the door if you lock them out. They are automatically toilet trained, smart and self sufficeint enough to get along if you stay out late. So in comparison to a dog what is preferable???
LOL, now that I have one of each I long for the days when I just had a cat I should have opted for a second cat...although I know that isn't as much of a burgular deterant as a dog (maybe I should have opted for geese instead??? Although the toilet training would have been more of a problem if I had!)
Well that's about it for me...CAT'S RULE!
