I like cats that behave like dogs...in other words when they like to socialize with me by cuddling, playing, etc. Maybe that is part of the reason why some shy away from them.

I think people hate cats because they are not like dogs. dogs come to you when they are called. Cat's take a mesage and get back to you later. Dogs go to the bathroom outside. Most indoor cats use a litter box and not many people like to clean a litter box. Dogs do tricks and cats don't.

I am a dog owner but I don't hate cats. I do have allergies to them which makes it uncomfortable to be around them.

I have allergies and have never really cared for cats, but my wife loves them. We've always had a couple, but then we took in a litter from outside and now we have 5. They are sweet girls and I found myself really liking them and they like me--go figure!

I think if the people who think they don't like cats would spend time with a cat they would change their minds. Cats don't need as much care as dogs.

My theory is it's an ego thing. People who don't like cats, their ego can't handle a pet that doesn't want to please them or worship them 24/7 like a dog. Insecurity maybe?

Some people resent cats because of allergies. Others had a bad experience, such as being scratched by a cat when they were young. Others are just close-minded and rely on the popular media image of cats (have you ever noticed that cats in children's movies are almost always mean or evil, while dogs are almost always 'the good guys'?) I love cats, and so do many Zootooers.

My husband hated cats and swore we would never own one. For 13 years I dealt with it then got a cat because I love them. Well 12 years and four cats later my hubby has totally changed his mind about them. They are his babies. I think that the fact that cats are so independent and aloof turns some people off.

Those are the unlucky people who have never been fortunate enough to own one!
