Resolved: Atheists Are More Cat People Than Dog People

Having co-habited with many cats over the years, I've found them to be free-thinking and inquisitive, like atheists. Dogs seem to be more accepting, more willing to go along. I think this accounts for the fact that atheists tend to favor cats over dogs. (I'm not saying atheists hate dogs--just that we're better attuned to cats.) Comments?

Petting them's a little messier, though.
Hey, my dog doesn't mess up my furniture...she definitely knows better! Hell, she has a guilty look on her face if she so much as chewed up a napkin while I was gone, lol :-)

Yeah but fish don't snuggle.

Aww cute picture Ruth! I love cats - I'm a cat person!
Me, I'm a dog person. I grew up with a wonderful dog and I miss him very much. Now we have a crazy, loving, spoiled 1-year old dog and I miss him while I'm at school. But that's me. My bf has a cat; the cat is scary and hilarious at the same time, he's good at sneaking up on you and pouncing. :)
Nope, not me. My dog is my best friend. And I've had cats, don't care for them, plus I HATE litterboxes!!!
Completely true for me! I love cats... though I've always thought cats were like the soft, smart, female versions of dogs. But that's a bit sexist, no?
Good call. That's how mine is. Barks all day at nothing, runs around the neighborhood terrorizing invisible monsters, doesn't listen to any commands/pleas, and rolls around in the plentiful deer carcasses surrounding our mountain-surrounded home. Silly little Christian dog.
I agree! I've never thought of this before. I like cats and their independence. I dislike dogs constant need for attention/reassurance. The few atheist friends I have seem to like cats more as well. This would be interesting data on a large scale.
I have three outside cats (no fucking litter boxes at my house) and two dogs, and they are all fixed.

My cats all have different personalities, and are independant critter gitters. No mice at my house and the birds stay on their guard. I love my cats.

My dogs are dogs. They are my best friends and bring me much joy.
cats love me for some reason and often go out of their way to get me to stroke them when I am walking down the road.They must see I am a soft touch.
Dogs I don't get on with, they are too barky and dribbly and stuff.
I once had an ickle fluffy kitty follow me for about half a mile late one night he refused to go home, he was obviously lost and despite putting posters up and so on we never found out where he came from, and so he adopted me and I still have him. His name is Binky named after Death's horse.
One of the many things I love about cats; they often chose their people.
