Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats
I believe dogs are better companions to humans than cats. Hopefully, after reading the arguments below, you will also be convinced this is the case.
Firstly, a study (Valeri 2006) that took 4 groups of 95 people (dog owners, cat owners, dog and cat owners, neither) the dog owners and dog and cat owners laughed more when they used daily “laughter logs”.

You could call it a variation of people being able to ëread a roomí, so to speak. You always see dogs very happy to see their owners, and very happy and wagging their tail whenever youíre near them, even if youíre not paying them much attention. Dogs are almost always very loving of people. Cats? Not so much. So next time you see a dog, try to notice the signals of why it is, or if it is,
