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?

Huh... I wouldn't have thought there was a correlation between Atheists and feline preference... but now that it's said, all the friends I have who are atheists own cats, no dogs.

I chose cats because they're more independent.
They think and do as they like, while still respecting certain boundaries you make clear to them.
They don't need orders, they don't take orders... they just act on their own free will and understand that there are certain things you just don't do.

I love cats.
Dog lovers would say that cats are "stupid"... whereas, I find they understand what you want quite clearly... they just chose whether or not they want to give it to you.

One of my cats, Chaos, has figured out how to open doors with handles instead of knobs.
He has also figured out how to retrieve the excess water from the tap in the shower by pressing the lever that switches it from shower to bath... hence, releasing the water in the upper pipes. He prefers water directly from the tap for some reason.
... and he has figured out how to turn my stereo off... yeah, he has a particular distaste for certain types of music, and he's not afraid to walk past you and smack the disc-open button on the top to make the music stop, and then walk past you again staring at you.

Cats are very intelligent.
I think they just usually don't let it show because they don't feel they have a need to.
Sounds like Chaos could star in some great Mew Tube videos.

Johnsky, I find your cat stories interesting and laughed at him stopping the music and daring you to do something about it.

Personally I love my cats.

My current two BlackJack and Jenga are a freaking awesome pair of adorable cats. BlackJack currently is my "fetching cat", I always seem to wind up with a who enjoys playing with and fetching foam rubber balls. Jenga is my soft bundle of cuddly joy, and the people cat of the house, if your people... she's your bestest friend ever.

My last two (Potato & Koony) past away last year at the ripe ages of about 16 years old (I say about because all my cats are always rescued street animals). I cry everytime I loose a pet and I am not ashamed to admit it.

People who say animals have no personalities have never had a pet companion.

P.S. My family (except for my mother) are all dog owners, so I love dogs as well, I just don't want to own one.
I have one of each because I embrace every facet of my personality. hahaha.
I enjoy the company of well-socialized dogs who are, alas, too few and far between.

I am definitely a cat person, as evidenced by Atheist Ailurophiles.
I would rather have dogs and I do have 2 dogs no cats. My fiancé is a profetional dog trainer.
Yes, I agree with you!
Dogs have owners
Cats have staff
Absolutely! My opposable thumbs are put into daily good service.
I'm a dog person... can't stand cats.
