I enjoy both dogs and cats (although I generally don't find those small, fluffy, white dogs very appealing), but I find that the personality traits of cats suit me better. I don't have much desire to own an animal that sits when I tell it to, or comes every time I call their name. I like the independent nature of cats, their laid back style, etc. I also enjoy their cunning, predatory behavior that has remained unwashed from "domesticated" cats - as they are apex predators everywhere they exist in the wild.
