Resolved: Atheists Are More Cat People Than Dog People

Having co-habited with many cats over the years, I've found them to be free-thinking and inquisitive, like atheists. Dogs seem to be more accepting, more willing to go along. I think this accounts for the fact that atheists tend to favor cats over dogs. (I'm not saying atheists hate dogs--just that we're better attuned to cats.) Comments?

Bandit was fearless too. I used to take him to the dog park. Once a man came in with his three dogs who went after Bandit. Bandit took them all down one by one.

My neighbor had a nasty toy poodle that bit nearly everyone in the community, including the dogs. He bit Bandit in the leg and Bandit had him on his back with feet in the air in a minute.

He was gentle with children—they could step on his tail and he would just nudge them away.

We don't get thunderstorms often, but we do have earthquakes and Bandit gave an early warning, running around barking furiously.

Beautiful dog.  I still have a lot of work to do with Meeka's response to other dogs.  She becomes extremely excited and will to rush at them to try to play.  Those are not good manners and, if we had a dog park around here, I'd be uneasy about taking her to it.

If you can find one, you might give it a try. The dogs there could teach her how to play, starting with the "play bow" which Bandit learned in a dog park. They do learn from each other.

As far as can tell, the nearest dog park is hours away by highway.  I might try her in one of those once I'm a little more confident about recall with her.

I have a friend who has a dog about her size and a bit older.  I take her there at least once a week and they love to play together.  The play gets pretty rough sometimes but we've watched enough to know that it's mutual.  Her approach to all dogs seems to be the same, though, and it could be disastrous if the other dog doesn't see it as play.

Has anyone posted a picture of their cat?

That's wonderful booklover. You are really helping out.

You have beautiful cats booklover.

Thanks for posting your picture of them.

Guilty as charged here. I have three cats (Junkmail, Fido, and Auto-Kitty), down from four (cause Burp is with my nephew now).

Don't have any dogs.

Thank you. :) ...now if only they would learn them.

Not sure about that, I have a cat and I know he plots against me......see link,

Hysterical and true methinks

I don't favor cats.  I hate cats with a passion.  I am a dog lover.  As far as I am concerned, a good cat is a dead cat.

I don't think I am harsh at all.  Cats are just there and non productive.
