Stuff like this is why I am a cat person; they don't need as much love as a dog. Most times, as long as they have enough to eat, they would be OK without a human.
Other people's dogs are great, they can be playful or friendly, but they don't NEED you, just their owners/people.

A good dog owner/person has to be a good and responsible person; a cat person just has to be able to handle a litterbox.

I had a dog for many years that followed me home one day, sort of. I was walking in downtown Chicago with a girlfriend. A dog came racing out of Grant Park and appeared to be so excited to see me. He was all excited and dancing around me. There were people in the park playing frisbee, picnicing, etc. My friend and I walked slowly waiting for someone to notice their dog was following us. We got to the end of that section of park and turned and walked back again, slow. No one ever called the dog. He was happily trotting ahead of us, glancing back every few seconds to keep an eye on us. We ditched into a store when he wasn't looking, hoping to lose him. He glanced back, didn't see us and went crazy running up and down the street looking for us. I felt guilty, we stepped out of the store lobby and that dog was all over me like he almost lost his best friend. Needless to say, we loaded him into my car, I took him home, cleaned him up and he was my friend and guardian for the next 13 years or so. He was dirty, flea ridden, had multiple cuts and was afraid of brooms and, oddly enough but you can figure this out, he was afraid of flashlights in a dark room. Like someone was searching for him to hurt him. He also despised people who had been drinking and smelled of alcohol. No dog has ever loved me like that dog. Where ever I went with him, all I had to do was look around and he'd be lying somewhere near, watching me. I don't know what it was but that dog had a 'thing' for me like I've never seen before. I know all my dogs love me but there was something extremely special about what that dog felt for me and I never could figure out why, in the crowd of people that day, that dog singled me out.
Dogs have an uncanny sense of people's charachter. Seen it too many times in their actions.

That's why I like dogs.

Too me cats have no useful purpose. You can't train them. They won't guard you or alert for danger. All you do is feed them and clean up after them. They won't retrieve your birds or flush, find game etc. They will certainly kill them (birds and small creatures) just for fun and will play with them before they finish them off. They are the only animal on the planet other than humans that will kill without a reason. One of nature's cruelest and most efficient killers. JMO

Popeye, I can't stand cats, but I have to disagree with some points. They're not the only animals that kill for sport, coyotes and wolves also have been known to do so, and I think other animals have too.

Also, they're VERY useful in a barn. They'll keep rodents and bugs out of livestock feed.

Alas, that's the only damn actual reliable "use" I know of. Some people love them as pets, sure. Many for the very reason Orangello pointed out, they're pretty self sufficient, and most people need only know how to empty the litter box/fill the food/water bowls to get along famously with a cat.

Oh well. They're just not privy to the cat's plan of world domination.

Take the mushroom, take the world, and it starts with diet coke. Sorry. That was a flashback to SOI days.

I like dogs alot better than cats. Cats seem to be good for haven no small varmints in barns and such and otherwise are only good as speed bumbs and dog chow(I see alot of dead cats run over around me and my pit eats everyone he can catch). They have other good uses but I wont mention THEM on open forum.
