That could be a result of the dog I currently have. You see, to be blunt, my dog is a moron. Not only is idiocy one of my pet peeves (and I know I sound like a snob here, but when I say idiocy I mean like in the extreme, not just mild regular idiocy, but the kind of idiocy that makes you baffled and go "they're not really THAT stupid are they?"), but my dog also likes to jump on people and follow you around and literally stick her nose where it doesn't belong. Cats I much prefer, for they are as moody as I can be. A cat will cuddle you and a cat will leave you alone from time to time. A cat will want to be let outside and fed, but other than that they're not needy creatures. Just the perfect companion for me!
