    I know I will get in trouble for saying this but
    while I do really like(love) our cat, the kitty litter is
    really a part I don't like. In fact it's stinks, literally
    and figuratively.

    Not where I come from....Ther are more cats in homes than dogs, dogs are bigger eaters, they may require more food.

    True facts....Cats are king in the household in every country, [Do you ever hear of hype?] That's what your specimen is doing.

    I am a cat lover too,
    But something seems to make a false case for dogs being better, people actually pay each other for dogs!
    Does not make sense to me due to how much damage dogs do to the home, inside or out,,,
    My 2 cents.

    Well, as a dog and cat owner who personally feels more of an affinity with dogs, I have to point out that in real, scientific studies, it is in fact fresh water fish which are the most popular pet world wide. I am not sure I would put much faith in what the pet food industry has to say given you can't even trust what most of them say they put in their product.

    I have no love for cats, sorry. Dogs do many good things for us, i am a dog person. I am glad though the people that have cats do enjoy them and love them.

    You might want to try this. My daughter has a Maine Coon Cat whose smell could force an evacuation of the neighborhood!

    She went with this product that uses pellets that do not clump. The wet part sinks through holes in the device so it is captured in an absorbent material (much like diapers). It can then be cleaned out.

    Smells are non-existant or close thereto.

    P.S. She also has a Golden Retriever.

    Thank goodness for cats when it is 10 degrees and snowing outside, find a dog that will use a litter box. I have had both and prefer cats because you can go away for a week, leave enough food and water behind and you're set. As for damage to the house, they can both do a lot, cats love to claw everything but the last dog I had ate half a couch in one day while my ex-wife and I were at work.

    Shutter,
    I don't think it is a matter of the Snake getting along, I think the other animals do not get along. :excited:

    IF cats are more popular it might be because they are easier than dogs. Well behaved dogs are not born they’re trained.

    I can’t imagine the house without a dog, or two, or even three. I think we have concluded that one isn’t enough and three is too many. All of our dogs have come from rescue. We’re a foster home for N.E.A.R. and our current pair, three year old brother and sister, came from T.A.R.T.

    Whether it’s a cat or a dog, they certainly can find the path right to your heart.

    Are they all 3 Airedales?
    If so, I feel for you.
    I had one, years ago, who was a sweetheart.
    But dumb as a rock.

    Hi Martin,

    Yes they are all Airedales.
    I wouldn’t classify them as dumb. Obstinate, hell yes, but not dumb. The females are especially hard to train.
