Many of us love our animals, but we may lean more towards a certain type. Which type are you? Or are you more of a bird or reptile type? I've had two cats before & they were nice (also rabbits, a bird, & tons of fish, even hermit crabs) but I've had some dogs in my life & I'm such a dog person. Cats are known to be more aloof, but I like the interactiveness of a dog. I don't see myself ever having another cat, but dogs, yes. The dog I have now is my 1st one I got as an adult (meaning me, I got the dog as a puppy) & he's also strictly indoors.
