5. You are absolutely, 1000% wrong about cats not being affectionate.

They are very loving and affectionate toward their people. I have three who follow me around the house and demand to be petted. They sleep with me, whine when they see me leaving the house and greet me at the door purring when I come home. Other cats I encounter, even strays on the street, are friendly toward me. Maybe the reason cats don't like you is that they sense you don't like them.

I do not hate dogs. I love them. But my lifestyle never allowed me to have one because until I retired I was away from home too much and wouldn't have been able to care for a dog properly. Cats are lower-maintenance because they don't have to be let out or walked. They are also more suitable for an apartment-dweller for that reason and because they are relatively small and quiet. Also, they are Democrats.
