Which side of the debate are you on?

Megan Irwin, Staff writer

There are many arguments on whether cats or dogs are the superior pet. People argue that cats are cheaper than dogs. Others say, why does that matter when dogs are more sociable and fun to have as a pet?

In a highly unscientific poll of about 70 people, more than half chose dogs. The reasoning ranged from “they actually hang out with you” to “you can take care of them like they are babies.”

About 20 people chose cats as their preferred pent. Madison Irwin explained her choice because “cats are low maintenance, they are soft, and they meow.”

When asked in groups, the whole group tended to have the same answer.

Some people chose “other” in the poll and identified snakes, turtles, lizards, platypus, ferrets, guinea pigs, and rabbits as the preferred pet.
