16. I agree! This bipetual thinks a lot of these assertions

are off.

Sadly, hubby and I no longer have a kitty in the family because he developed severe allergies to them decades ago. (We found the best home for our last younger kitty who lived to be 21, btw, - her new mom was a pediatrician.)

However, we both LOVE both species but favor dogs a bit more because they're much more attentive to humans and are way less selfish. Dogs will protect their humans even if it means risking their own lives. Cats?...sorry, folks.

Dogs are pack oriented and will therefore protect all members of the family, including "their" cats. One of our sweet pups once defended and chased off a dog who was chasing "her" kitty. She loved her kitty and vice versa - they grew up together. That's the secret to a cat's loving and fully accepting a dog - they must bond as kittens, otherwise, it often seems a bit hopeless.

Personality wise? Hubby, a big dog person, is rather painfully introverted. And me? I'm a very caring, more outgoing/ outspoken but untolerant asshole. As DUers know, that's not a contradiction in terms. Hubby's painful shyness rather gets on my nerves. (Folks think he's a saint but don't know what he says in private.) Conclusion: the article's assertions do not apply to us.
