I am a cat-person, but does that also make me a cat person? I do like dogs, and clearly am not a dog-person, but that would mean I am a dog person. I also like cats, but having grown up with dogs, I'm not sure how to totally treat cats. So, that would make me likely a cat-person that's not a cat person.
Dogs are more straightforward with their affection, and I'm a straightforward kind of person. I don't want to be affectionately stared at from afar by a cat; I want to be flat out tackled by a dog. Also, cats seem to sense my preference for their canine pet counterparts and hate me for it. Even the cats that are allegedly 'friendly' hiss and scratch me.
I thought I was a cat person until my parents got a labrador and damn, I love everything about her. From the straightworward affection mentioned above, to the crazy amount of expression in her eyes and body language. She's so goddamn adorable when she feels she's on a mission and goes around so proud of herself.
I absolutely like cats too, just am not super crazy about them like my friends are.
I like dogs, but cats are my favorite. People who think cats are stuck up and evil just aren't used to an animal treating them as an equal! Some cats are jerks, but overall they are the best little buddies.
