I have two cats, Bert and Ernie (they had those names before I adopted them at the shelter.)
Bert is a black and white tuxedo, very slim with slanted eyes, huge pointy ears and a tapered tail... The body of a Siamese cat without the coloring.
Ernie is a brown and black spotted tabby, built like a normal housecat except that he has slightly larger-than-normal ears and a pointed chin... The body of a normal cat... but with the voice of a Siamese yowler!
They are littermates of a ...guess?... Siamese female that got knocked up by a domestic male by accident. They were apparently the only two of the litter who didn't appear Siamese and weren't sold. I got them when they were 1-1/2 years old, already neutered and 4-paw declawed.

Having grown up with both, I love both dogs and cats, however I think cats will always occupy that special place for me. I think in part because cats are more expressive in their emotions than dogs. If they're happy, you know it. If they're pissed off...ohhhh, you'll know it! Dogs are also great, however I just find cats to have a bit more of a personality with an independent streak.

We have three cats, Ralphy, Midnight and Dipsy. Ralphy is a skinny grey-striped cat whom we adopted about six years ago at the age of two. He is without doubt the Alpha cat of the household, very bold and dominant, but extremely friendly towards people. Midnight is all-black and about the same age as Ralphy. She is very quiet and meek, so much so that I joke that she's actually a stuffed cat. Her only sign of life comes at dinnertime, as she has an insatiable appetite for people food and will beg until fed. Finally, Dipsy is three years old, a huge orange blob - he probably weighs close to 20 pounds. He's also comically timid; if a vistor is in the house, Dipsy will disappear and won't be seen for hours. Midnight hates Dipsy.

I like both cats and dogs.
When I was growing up we had a St. Bernard she was a beautiful dog. She was big, but very gentle. She passed away in 1989 of a heart attack at age 14.
Since then we have had cats. Right now we have a 11 month old male cat named Noodles. He is basically orange with some faint brown stripes along the back. He is a very good cat (except he can get a bit rough sometimes when he is playing) He loves to sleep on my lap. Noodles is a strictly indoor cat, he is not allowed outside at all.

I like both, dogs and cats.
Now I have a Dalmatian male (liver colour), 4 years old. He is a perfect watchdog for our house in Southern India. He has got enough place all around our house to play. I brought him with me in the plane (cabin) from Switzerland to India when he was three months old. He likes to play on the beach near the waves. His name is Bengalo. I have chosen this name because his future will be at the fascinating Bay of Bengal.
The way my dog looks attentively at me when I speak to him helps me to understand that he wants to remain my friend.
