I mean as far as pets go, I used to think myself a dog person, but I had never owned one, I've only owned cats. Yet, as I've seen myself spending more and more time with dogs, I just don't see myself as a dog person anymore. It's just not me, the doggy kisses, the barking, there's just all around more actual care involved with a dog, while I could spend that time loving a cat.
I do agree, cats have the most amazing eyes! And it's funny you should mention the guarding, we used to have a cat who guarded the house from anyone she thought was threatening us, and she could be pretty vicious about it too, but that was abnormal cat behaviour.
As far as cuddling goes, dogs may give more in terms of cuddling, but I prefer a cat cuddle session because they just get comfortable and then they move no more, ready for lots of love, and they tend not to make you uncomfortable while they're at it.
And of course, me not being into a lot of noise, I can't stand the barking. It's ok in small amounts, but I don't think I'd be able to live with it.
I mean, I've never owned a dog, and maybe my opinion would change if I did, but I'm a cat person, and I'd rather them, especially since they suit my lifestyle much better. I dunno, I'm just a cat person, I can't imagine owning a dog.
