Cats are Better
By; Caitie H & Rosaleigh
Cats are good pets, when you're sad or happy. They can make you feel better whenever. Can you get nearly as much stuff with a dog?
Firstly, cats are more loving because when dogs at “work”, cats can stay home and love you. That is the whole point of a pet, not to be away from you. Cats don't bother you as much. When cats are quiet and gentle, dogs will go crazy and jump on you (maybe even slobber on you.) A cat's purr can calm you down if you're stressed.
Secondly, cats save lives because they work in hospitals going room to room making people feel safe and comfortable. Cats can also smell out sicknesses and if you're depressed. Cats come to you when you're dieing and comfort you.
Cats are the best pets ever they can love you and can save your life. Can you get that from a dog? I don't think so.
