Dogs Rule The Roost Whenever You Are Faced With A Choice Between Dogs And Cats As Pets

If you are in a dilemma as to whether to choose a cat or a dog for your pet, do consider a few points revealed by some research conducted on both the animals.

If you like cats, and are thinking of keeping a few cats, you are contemplating on the feline creatures who don't harbor the kind of emotional attachment a dog does with you.

The owners of the pets may not consider different emotional feelings while choosing between cats and dogs, but dogs are known to be sentimentally attached to the owner. Cats aren't attached to the owners by any emotional strings.

What makes cats all the more undesirable is the fact that they contribute to a imbalance in environmental stability. They are responsible for the killings of billions of species of birds.

The difference in the behavior displayed by dogs and  cats assumes significance in the wake of the realization that dogs and cats were domesticated at different points of time in history.

Domestication of dogs began about 15,000 years ago, while that of cats was initiated 9,500 years ago. The longer duration of domestication probably created more effective bonds between man and dogs.

While dogs were chosen by humans for different purposes like guarding animals, cats chose their owners in terms of availability of food.

Cats are believed to exhibit emotions for humans when they rub themselves against the legs of humans. But the act is often an effort on the part of the cat to spread its scent to the area around itself.

It wants to delineate its territory. In the wild, cats are known to do the same against trees. This action enables the deposition of pheromones emanating from their skins.
