Dogs vs. Cats

I’ve always thought of myself as more of cat than a dog person. My understanding is that dogs are a major commitment akin to raising a child, whereas cats are independent creatures that look after themselves as long as you provide them the occaisional tin of food (opened, I assume). But my recent interactions with canine kind have lead me to believe that dogs, as often stated, may indeed have more personality than cats. In the potential pet stakes its a moot point, as my current lodgiings aren’t suitable for anything more adventurous than a hamster, or perhaps a guinea pig. But f I can find more suitable accomodation, the question now is which to go for, dog or cat? Hmmm…
