8. It's funny because cats will come up to me and cuddle with me, but then they turn on

me and scratch or bite after I have been petting them for a bit. I have just learned not to trust them. When a dog is tired of being petted they will just get up and walk away, or not. Sometimes they will just put up with it. I suppose I am afraid of cats because I always expect them to harm me so I have learned to be wary of them. Maybe it's because I grew up with dogs and I am so comfortable with them.

I do think the stereotype about dog people is very off however, I know a lot of Democrats who are big dog lovers. The point is that I don't think you can completely peg someone's personality by the type of pet they choose. However, I have read these stupid articles in science magazines, Psychology Today and numerous websites and they all say basically the same thing. I just think it's lazy science/research. I don't think there is any truth to it. To each their own.
