Why more cat/kitten threads than dog/puppy threads?
Today seems especially cat-oriented.

I've nothing against it, I'm just wondering if Lounge members in general fawn over cats more than dogs. I love cats and dogs equally...well, depending upon the particular specimen, that is.

Have a nice day regardless.

1. without insulting anyone, I will point out that it's a LOT more likely that a cat owner
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 07:30 PM by Redstone
will refer to his or her cats as "children" and take more pictures of them and obsess over them and talk about them a LOT more than dog owners do.

I am NOT insulting cat owners here, just making an observation that you all know is true if you'll just be honest about it.

5. because cats/kittens are more cute and adorable?

7. Cats smell better than dogs...
lol. I love all of my babies equally, though. :) I have two cats and a dog, and they are all three great pets in their own ways. (yes, I know, sappy...lol.)

Phoenix, the king of aloof who rarely permits himself to be photographed:


And Isabel, the hurricane refugee-turned-cat model:

8. Careful.. I definitely didn't intend to start a war... Unless you like wars...
I would have asked, "Why so many PC threads, and no Mac?"

...run...

9. And I would've answered...
"Because Macs suck." :P

(Nah, I know a lot of people like 'em - I just never quite got the hang of it, despite using one for a whole year in school.) :shrug:

15. I saw that, how neat.
But bears and Dobson's Flies and such are the oddballs of the Lounge. They can be a nice break though :-)
