"The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man's." – Mark Twain, Letter to W D Howells, 4/2/1899

Rivals for Affection.



I guess this battle has been going on for as long as there have been cats and dogs. They probably both know that they are ‘rivals for affection’.

You don’t have to be a dog person or a cat person but most of us lean one way or the other.

I’ve known some amazing cats in my life but to be truthful, what made them ‘great’ was that they were more like independent dogs than your run of the mill cat.

Amazingly dogs get all the bad press while cats do an amazing amount of damage to native wildlife (at least they do here in Australia).
