Top 10 Hilarious Differences Between Dogs and Cats
Posted on March 24 2018
Cats and dogs have been always a controversial topic for everyone loving the animal especially those who want to bring up either of them. Through their appearance, their behaviors or even their characteristics, we can figure out some hilarious differences between cats and dogs. Let's take a look at our post and check how many percents are we correct about your cats, or dogs!
1 Like a boss or be a boss
You are my dear boss!
If you are raising dogs then you will definitely know much about that. To them, we are the super nice boss. Lots of dogs look at their owners, wide-eyed, in awe of what great and generous creatures they are. You can see the gratitude in a dog’s eyes whenever their owner fills their dog bowl yet again with delicious food, throws their favorite tennis ball, and dishes out scrumptious treats.
Oh, I know I am the boss!
Things are not so easy to cats at all. If we give cats food, they will think we consider them the king. Therefore, cats just wait to be fed and do not show any sign of admiration or happiness at all. What to be must be done, is it?
2 Friendliness or coldness
The friend of many friends
Hey, I just met you and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me... friendly, maybe?
Just as it treats its owner, to people, most dogs really like being so close to people as if there had been a connection before. Sometimes, it might be a cute and naughty scratch. But overall, dogs show their open-minded personality, their generosity, and friendliness!
Seen... and who are you by the way?
Coldness and sharpness, those can be used to describe a cat at the first time meeting. Not so friendly as dogs seem to be, cats prefer silence and they are anti-crowded. One might take a long time to make friend with cats. If you do have in the same situation, let us know right away!
3 Bathing Habit
Yayy that's all I have been waiting for.
You can notice how exciting your dog is whenever it comes to the bathing time. Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and perfume, are you ready? Here I come!
No way. Stay away from me!
Obviously being opposite to dogs, cats are not used to taking a shower or getting wet. This makes them irritated or angry. Cats usually keep themselves pretty clean, so unless she really got into something sticky or messy she probably didn’t even need to take a bath. In her mind, she was probably tormented by her human for no reason whatsoever. Cats can also be sensitive to smells, so it’s possible she doesn’t like the smell of the shampoo on her fur.
4 Exercising effort
It's good for our health!
For those dog lovers or dog owners, you will clearly notice that whenever we throw something, maybe a ball or a plate or... a bone, dogs will try to run fast enough to catch up with and bring the thing back to the starting point. This is something that many other pets would see as a complete waste of energy. And the pup will probably go after each toss with the same enthusiasm.
No thanks, I am so fine. I'm fit enough.
Not all cats are lazy, but most, we think. Compared to dogs, cats do not have the habit of running or chasing things. That might be the reason why we have catwalk, but not dog walk. They do not need to run but just slowly walk, step by step. Eventually, they can reach the place. Is that right, cat lovers?
5 Loneliness or Freedom?
Where's my man?
Just in time when you stand on your doorsteps, your little cutie dog will run out of the house and reach you right then. Having to say, dogs find themselves lonely without the existence of the owner.
Do you ever wonder what your pet does while you’re away? Waiting, keep waiting and just for some more minutes!
Am I lonely? Of course not! I am so comfortable.
Being well-known as the more independent pet, cats do not find it empty or boring at all while being home alone. In fact, they might even like having alone time to do all the things they’re not allowed to when their human parents are home!
6 Hug and Scratch
Come here, buddy!
It would not be wrong to state that dogs are so friendly as they look. That is to say, they really want to catch our attention and play with us. Even if you wake a dog up from a deep sleep in order to pet her, she will not mind one bit. It doesn’t matter if you pet a dog’s head, back, legs, belly, or any other available body part. A dog will love every minute of it.
Do not touch and no touching, please!
Cats are much more fickle about being touched, especially by people they aren’t familiar with. In fact, touching a cat who is not in the mood for petting could very well result in a nasty scratch! Thus, be careful with your hand. You don't want your hand to have some new "tattoos", do you?
7 Dressing code
How great my clothes are!
Hanging out for some minutes, you will notice that many dogs are dressed fashionably. Needless to say, dogs tend to have such good temperaments and, therefore, they’re pretty much down for whatever. What about you? What do you dress for your pulp?
What have you done to me?
Weird, strange and awkward. No matter how cold it is outside or how much the owner spends to keep his cat warm (and stylish), it will not be (and will never be) grateful, or even happy at all. So to them, no dress, freestyle, please!
8 Guilty.. or maybe no!
I'm truly sorry...
Most of you might have heard about "dog shaming", one of the cutest and most seen moments of dogs. Facebook, Instagram or Youtube, etc. everywhere you could find a video clip of dog feeling ashamed without any words to say when doing something wrong. The feeling of guilt is often displayed clearly on their faces right after that. Comment and capture if your dog used to have this moment!
Me? I think I'm not the one.
Cats do not seem to feel guilt, an observation that’s been discussed at length in a New York Times column. In it, John Tierney said that one of the most common questions he fields from readers is whether cats feel regret or guilt. One reader provided an amusing answer to this question: “They regret not being large enough to eat their keepers.” Another wrote that cats only feel regret for getting caught, not for behaving badly. The cat above could have just devoured the family’s pet parakeet, and she’d still be lounging contentedly like this.
9 Train or to be trained
Hi. I am ready for the training course!
Each year, dog owners spend hundreds (or thousands) to train their dogs. Dog obedience training is no joke and can get expensive fast. Despite the cost, training is a great investment and can help train your pup to walk while off a leash, commands, and more. Training ultimately lets your dog know that you’re in charge and teaches them how to obey you and respect you and others. That is why you have police dogs, good partnership!
Hello. I need a favor, please!
It’s rare that we hear about a cat owner training their feline friend because unlike dogs, cats train their owners! Whether you want to believe it or not, it’s true—your cat has probably already conditioned you to act in certain ways without even noticing it. Take a minute to think about life pre-cat and now with your cat.
10 Getting muddy, why not?
Yeah, babe! Enjoy the moment with me!
If there are any prizes given to the muddiest kind of the year, it would be dogs which are the winner. They do not care much about getting dirty. Just like being in a disco party and feel this moment so cool!
Not my type!
Not rolling around in the mud like a filthy animal, cats prefer cleaning or sometimes constantly lick themselves. In fact, the majority of cats really do spend about 50% of their time cleaning themselves! That’s a lot of hours. Why do they do it so much? Turns out that cleaning has a few benefits: it cools the cat down, it wipes away food odors that could attract predators, and it improves circulation.
