    We have two scratching posts, one at each end of the house, so put together and with all leather furniture we have little furniture scratching. Does your horse kick around the barn furniture?

    Re: Cats or Dogs?

    Dogs are the pets and companions of humans. Humans are the pets and servants of cats. Dogs are playful and want to be part of the family. Cats are snooty and are usually aloof from the family. These of course are generalisations but in the great majority of cases these characterisations hold up. Your cat or dog may vary from this generalisation. But many don't.

    Cheers and may your dogs be well and may a pox be on your cats.

    Our cats are naughty. They have a scratch post, but prefer one wall in particular. The Siamese is a serial trash raider. The horse doesn't kick at all.

One is a beautiful orange tabby and the other is calico who has attached herself to me since birth. She has to lay beside/on me all the time even in bed. The orange tabby sticks closer to my wife but walks with me on my morning walk thru the neighborhood.
    I hope you are keeping the orange tabby on a leash the whole time during your walks with him. One step too far will make him roadkill.

    What are their names?

    Dogs for companionship or hunting.
    Cats for catching mice.

    Only 55 years now. I have seen the transformation from scared and fearful animals to loving loyal pet too many times to know you are wrong.

    Of course they do. Otherwise we would not need parents.

    When they were teenagers all that changed. It was, oh, hi dad, if they said anything at all. Then back to their phones, unless they needed the car, or money, or both.

    After they finished college and all had moved out, we got a dog. He's always there to greet me, happy as hell to see me, and always grateful if I bring him a treat. Little kids and dogs; the only unconditional love you will ever get. They don't judge, they don't hold grudges, they just love you.
    This has a lot of truth and that's why I prefer dogs over kids. Big difference between when children are little and when they become preteens and teenagers. OTOH, dogs are always wonderful companions regardless of their ages.

    I was directly addressing your post in a very specific manner.
    You actually think so... and that is the problem.

    Dogs have owners.

    Cats have STAFF.
