Wondering what Saturdays with Stella is all about? It is a column written by my 10-year-old daughter, which was first introduced here.
Now have you ever had an argument with a friend about whether dogs or cats were better? You’re not alone.
I used to be a dog person because we had a big black dog with a white stripe down his chest. I was only a dog person because I had never really interacted with a cat before.
Then one of our neighbours got two cats — T.T. and Blackbeard. They always came into our yeard and I would spend hours petting them. At that point, I decided both cats and dogs were good.
I’m pretty sure that you think that the animal you favour is smarter than the other type. But think about it like this: the dogs and cats don’t care if they are smarter or better than each other, so why do we care so much?
Even if you can’t stand cats, it’s not like they are evil. On lots of dog based shows or movies, the cats are bad and snooty just because they can’t be trained.
So the next time you make an opposition to a dog or cat, think again.
