Dog or Cat; Which do you prefer as a pet?
Cats and dogs cohabiting isn’t always a sign of the end of the world. Despite their substantial differences, these two species can get along fairly well.
But how might such distinctions influence your connection with your pet, or your decision to adopt a companion if you only have one?
Dogs are social animals who live in packs:

According to Veterinarians.com, dogs in the wild create packs in which each member works together to obtain food and provide a defence. The pack usually has an “alpha dog” who serves as a leader to the other dogs. Domestic puppies are born with a pack instinct that makes them gregarious, friendly, and eager to be a part of a family or even a single human who can give food and leadership.
Cats are solitary hunters:
With the exception of lions, most wild cats are nocturnal predators who hunt alone. Cats, unlike dogs, have the ability to jump and climb, which helps them hunt and flee from danger. When it comes to collecting prey and protecting themselves from larger predators, their sharp, retractable claws provide them with a unique advantage.
So which of these domestic animals would you prefer as a pet?
