    I'm sorry if there isn't something that describes you - I'm just trying to keep it relatively simple to prove or disprove my basic premise.

    I'm a cat person, and a liberal. I like dogs well enough, I just prefer cats for myself.
    I'm pretty sure I'd come down on the conservative side. But I like to think that I'm not responding to labels/doctrines, but to common sense. Interestingly enough (as far as your poll is concerned), I have a German shepard named Josh and two cats named Bob-Bob and Shorty Pants. I love 'em all.

    My cat is posted up in the doorway or on the table overlooking the doorway whenever we come home.

    Sometimes he likes to bring his favorite toy and lay it on the rug in front of the door for us.

    I don't care for something that slobbers uncontrollably and is all over the place. Dogs are too "in your face" for my liking. If I wanted an animal to get close to my face I would bring it there.

    Of course, there is no relationship...I love animals, hate none (but the stink bug...a few human shortcomings are allowed).
    As a pet, however, neither cat nor dog, I have not the time, patience, nor money for either.......
    Also neither a conservative nor liberal be.....

    When's the last time a cat brought you a beer, chased off a burgler, flushed a pheasant, pointed a quail, retrieved a duck or anything of use? But cats make a great mascot if they are wild and purple! EMAW!
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Re: Do politics and pets go together?

    I'm sorry, I'm liberal and I prefer dogs, but I voted incorrectly for cats. Sorry to mess up your stats.

    It's not that I don't love cats too, but I can take my dogs camping, walking, to the beach...

    They are better companion animals for me.

    Wow. I have to ask: do you prefer anything at all to anything else?

    Cats are just plain ***holes sometimes, a lot of them also have just wacky personalities where you actually feel like you need to take the pet to a psychiatric hospital... Many of them have a case of OCD...

    dogs are more intelligent and personable... while i hear a lot of stories on this thread that their cat cuddles with them when their sick and scratches at intruders, thats a dogs freaking job every-day, i have never seen a cat do that (although i do believe you, but i think it is not nearly as common).

    If you raise a dog well when they are young it is really one of the most rewarding things i have ever done in my life, they are like freaking angles on earth...

    I think both dogs and cats can equally turn out to be attention whores, i've seen both, except maybe a little more common in dogs, but i would argue its easier to get a dog to leave you alone then a cat that is an attention whore. My girlfriend's roomates cat was THE most stubborn piece of crap i have ever seen and got its nasty hair on me every 20 seconds.
