Here some people say about the love and affection in cats and dogs:

  • "I haven't own any dogs, but I agree that cats can be equally if not more loving that dogs. Hell my cat probably has a dogs brain. Like she gets stressed whenever I leave house for than couple minutes, she follows me everywhere, always comes for snuggles and pets. Sure she won't protect house from intruders, but that really ain't an issue. Bringing dead animals as gifts? She can't catch anything for the love of her life so there's no problems with that." Hentai-hercogs
  • "My cats follow me around, look to be petted, try to follow me into my car and my house ( the feral outdoor cats), rub against me( I spend a small fortune on lint rollers lol), and run to the door when they hear my key in the lock. If they were any more affectionate I might have to move out!" Starlene Scott
  • "I think both animals are very intelligent (depending on their personalities) and have their own ways to show love to us." Queen_of_flatulence
  • "I have had several family dogs while growing up, both adopted and different breeds. Yes dogs are loyal and fun but so are cats. I have a Persian cat right now and he is such a sweet and kind furball and is so intelligent. He has never even hissed or bitten or scratched anyone ever, even if someone else is stepping on his personal boundaries and making him uncomfortable. He is so gentle and puts him paw my hand to tell me to stop instead of biting my hand or growling. I think both cats and dogs are equally loving. But yes, a cat doesn’t love just anyone. If a cat loves you, it is 100% genuine like how you love your partner or parents. Dogs on the other hand show love to everyone like friends." thekawaiipisces
