  1. They grow so fast! Puppies do, anyways. My experience has been that cats take a little longer to mature so maybe that is a difference people should consider. Either way, thank you for pointing our that ANY pet is a long term commitment and adoption should always be explored first!

  2. What a cute video!! Yes, I agree with you about adoption!! LadyBug is a rescue and my former BIG DOG was adopted from our local humane society. Since I found out I am allergic to cats, I cannot have them anymore.

  3. Christian is a sweetie too, he has the same smiling face as Kirby. They are different, but Cats and dogs are so cute together. Just follow the voice of your heart. Pawkisses for a Happy Day ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. My cousin always had a dog, and recently introduced a cat into the house. Her vet gave her some great advice that I want to share. Long before the cat comes, get rid of ALL the squeaky toys in the house. It will get the dog out of the habit of picking up little fluffy things and shaking them till they squeak…. if you know what I mean…. Her cat and dog are doing great together, so I guess it worked.

  5. Christian is adorable like Kirby!

    Lots of my family members have a dog/cat combo and for the most part it has been great. It’s a slow transition and there are so many ways to ease them into life together. Whatever you decide, we can’t wait to hear!

  6. Mom likes to have both as in our house we each serve different purposes. Mom likes bigger dogs, so we can’t be carried around or sit on laps, etc, but the cats serve that purpose. Cats are very different and sometimes Mom thinks they can be a bit more difficult because if we go away, cats can’t go with us, we need to find a cat sitter. But it is up to everyone to decide for themselves. We have two cats and two dogs so everyone has a friend of their own species.

  7. so cute! Love the video! I have both a cat and a dog but consider myself to be more of a cat person than a dog person. My cat IS a “cuddle bug” for sure! I adopted him when he was quite young and could tell by how he didn’t want to move off of my lap that he was a cuddle bug! My cat acts more like a dog than my dog does! We live in an apt and I feel bad for Dakota that we don’t have a yard, but Dakota doesn’t like taking walks OR going outside? I know, that is strange! Everything you said was true, there are pluses and minuses to both but I love both of mine just the same

  8. Christian is so cute…. Kirby is the sweetest puppy I ยดve ever seen..
    .
    So it is hard to choose between cats and dogs…

    I am a great fan of Cats, I have two, Misha & Nobel….

    But Iยดd love to have a dog as yours, Leah…

    By the way the video is cool & you look gorgeous :)…

    Sending you hugs , โ˜†โ˜†โ˜†

  9. Great reasonings. However, many of the pros and cons you listed do not apply to every dog or every cat. For example, You can have a big dog in an apartment. Just ask my nearly 70lb Maya. She grew up in a one-bedroom apartment. Now that she has a big yard to play in, she could care less.

    If you’re not sure, I would just check around until you find the right pet that pulls on your heart strings just right. You’ll know him/her when you find him/her. This is how it was with Pierson. I knew I wanted him for my own the moment I met him.

  10. Great Video too cute ๐Ÿ™‚ I have four cats and two dogs and cannot choose between them …I find I get different things from not only the dogs and cats but from the individuals themselves I also have three pet sheep so the mix is weird…couldn’t choose I really couldn’t …:) Have a great day hugs Fozziemum xx

  11. Oh, I loves those pics!!! His is growin’ soooo fast!! So very cute though!!
    Ma says she wouldn’t know what to do with a kitteh!! BOL
    She’s always owned doggies. She likes kittehs, just wouldn’t know what the heck to do with em’!
    Kisses,

  12. That puppy looks just like Kirby! Kind of… anyways he’s super cute! Great video too. I actually think I’m more of a cat person. At least at work, I preferred working with the cats to the dogs. And honestly I preferred working with the exotics, reptiles and birds to all of them ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re gray kitty is so cute!

  13. Wow – he did get big! Very informative video. I used to consider myself a cat person, then I thought I was a cat AND dog person, and now I think I am a full blown dog person. It is weird how you can change over the years, but as you pointed out in your video, sometimes you find that one type of pet is better suited for you than the other. Not that I’d ever get rid of my cats of course, but I don’t plan on adding new ones down the road….

  14. I am a dog person. I’ve had cats before but I’ve always come back to having a pack. Don’t get me wrong, I love cats. But I just prefer dogs over them. LOL. And Christian looks cute.
