Cats are based, loving companions. Mine love to cuddle, be held, and a cat’s purr is at a frequency that heals wounds and sickness. Literally their purring can heal people and other animals. Google it.

DontApologize 25 points ago +29 / -4

I like cats. They are underrated as pets - pretty easy to care for and quite amusing. But "loving" is not what springs to mind. Dogs form an emotional attachment. A cat's "love" OTOH is entirely conditional.

BasedMedicalDoctor 26 points ago +29 / -3

That’s not true. I grew up with several shelties and as loving as they were, my cats are more affectionate. They cuddle, snuggle, meow until they’re held

Tallgingergirl 21 points ago +22 / -1

I just adopted two kittens, brothers from the same litter. This is the 1st time I have ever had a pet and they are amazing 💕 they always want to play or be sitting and loving all over us. Definitely the most loving and affectionate kitties. They are the best ☺️

BasedMedicalDoctor 20 points ago +22 / -2

Exactly. That’s how cats are. People have no idea.

ParticleCannon 4 points ago +4 / -0

Last time I adopted it was a brother and sister. One was an asshole, the other could melt your heart.

Incidentally, Asshole found a spot in the basement that had either reflected soundwaves or hidden spybugs, but he'd wander into the spot and randomly start backflipping. Fucking spaz.

BlackPillBot 1 point ago +3 / -2

He didn’t say they COULDN’T be loving hence the quotations around loving. He said that’s not what he would describe them as, and I tend to agree, especially when compared to dogs on average. Even my friends and family who have both cats, and dogs agree with this assessment.

StealthToddler -2 points ago +2 / -4

My shelty herds your cat and its friends.

Dogs > Cats

BasedMedicalDoctor 2 points ago +3 / -1

I used to agree that dogs > cats. I’ll always love shelties, and they’re the closest thing to being equal to cats, but to me cats have a slight edge. But I really love shelties.

StealthToddler 1 point ago +4 / -3

I respect that your opinion is as it is.

Exactly zero of the (few) cats that were in my life barked (or meowed) to inform me of a stranger in the yard.

None of my cats slam dunked an agility course in 57 seconds.

And none of my cats were buried with a granite marker like my Remington was (named after the American sculptor Frederick Remington). He responded to sign language commands! Used his toys to play with other toys. And recognized the dog in the mirror was probably himself.

No comparison.

But.. my dogs never brought me dead mice and snakes as a gift. So there's that.

OoooJackieBlue 4 points ago +4 / -0

My cat liked to teach me how painful it could be to have all his teeth and claws sunk into my ankle while he wrapped himself around it and repeatedly bunny kicked/clawed it. Bastard.

Zadria 3 points ago +4 / -1

My cats have warned me more then once about intruders in the yard. Some of my cats will growl if there is someone in the yard who should not be there. Cats have very good hearing, they can identify if there is someone that should not be there.

SPEDMan64 1 point ago +2 / -1

They aren't bringing them as gifts. They are trying to teach you how to hunt as they think what you eat is crap and not as good as the creatures they bring down.

Keiichi81 13 points ago +14 / -1

Why is it that no one can ever bring up cats in any context without some defensive dog owner being like "but muh dogs are better"?

DabbinOnBiden 8 points ago +9 / -1

Insecurities probably. I’ve always owned cats and dogs, girls I dated over the years made a lot of comments like “Lol I thought guys who had cats were weird or gay, I never knew cats were so fun!”

Sticky -2 points ago +2 / -4

Girl was right.

KartoffelPuffer 3 points ago +4 / -1

I think it's because many "dog people" treat cats as if they are some kind of inferior dog that looks a little different and doesn't behave correctly. They really can't grasp that comparing a dog to a cat is like comparing a dog to a raccoon.

Cats live one 1/2 to almost twice as long as dogs - that alone makes them awesome as pets. Every dog owner has to deal with a constant string of tragic endings that always come too soon.

Zadria 2 points ago +3 / -1

They don't piss on your furniture, you just have to neuter your pets.

True love is conditional.

KartoffelPuffer 0 points ago +2 / -2

Thank you. I'm so sick of the "unconditional love" fantasy. Anything without conditions has no value at all. God doesn't even love unconditionally - you have to at least believe!

EagleI 1 point ago +1 / -0

God's love is unconditional.

"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." - John 4:8.

"But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever." Psalms 52:8

KartoffelPuffer 1 point ago +1 / -0

And yet the fires of Hell exist. Unfailing love on God's part doesn't mean we're without conditions - and the generally accepted definition in today's lexicon is that "unconditional love" means rewards regardless of continued evil or state of penitance. WE have to take the step towards that love. That is a condition.

BlackPillBot 1 point ago +4 / -3

Yup, and unfortunately they fuck your furniture up if you don’t declaw them which is inhumane, and they inevitably give you toxoplasmosis. Dogs have many more uses than companionship, can be trained for many more things, and can go more places with you IMHO. I don’t hate cats, but I’d never have one as a pet, companion, and/or tool other than maybe a farm for rodents, but then again, my jacks, and rats do an amazing job taking care of that among other things.


jctbg20 2 points ago +2 / -0

You likely have toxoplasmosis anyway. Anything that came from a farm likely encountered cat poop

Toxoplasmosis is good for you anyway. Increases dopamine release when stimulated. So you enjoy sex, good food, good music more

BlackPillBot -2 points ago +3 / -5

Do you eat your food raw/undercooked? I don’t. If you do have toxo, and manage to get rid of it, but have a cat, you will likely keep, and continue to subject yourself to infection over, and over again.

Toxoplasmosis is good for you anyway. Increases dopamine release when stimulated. So you enjoy sex, good food, good music more

This is either a blatant example of a brain being altered, and controlled by toxoplasmosis, or a weak attempt at trolling. Either way, I bid you


SPEDMan64 -1 points ago +1 / -2

Sounds like the toxo talking to me.

mass55th 7 points ago +7 / -0

The longest relationship I ever had with a male, was with a male cat...almost 19 years. He was my best friend. He didn't want to borrow money, or the car, and I didn't have to worry that any food I'd bought for myself, would disappear from the fridge before I got to enjoy it. Couldn't say the same about my kids though.

ripley88 1 point ago +2 / -1

Cats are naked opportunists...

But who can blame them

KartoffelPuffer 1 point ago +2 / -1

That description fits every dog I've ever known. Dogs hide it with tail wagging and sneakily pretending they made a mistake while cats are bluntly honest about what they want.

Dogs are definitely much more useful.

doug2 -1 points ago +2 / -3

"a cat’s purr is at a frequency that heals wounds and sickness"

You honestly believe this?

BasedMedicalDoctor 6 points ago +7 / -1

To say I believe it would imply that it’s my opinion. It isn’t my opinion — it’s a fact.


Their purr frequency is 25Hz to 140Hz which has numerous healing benefits with bones, joints, etc.

KartoffelPuffer 5 points ago +5 / -0

I've seen the studies - it's true. They purr Alpha wave frequencies.

I’d check that socket. Cats can hear very well. Could be a bad connection burning too quiet to hear. My cats can hear someone near the front door when I can’t. Sit up and look at it. But they won’t make a sound. They definitely will knock out a mouse problem.

MAGA_TICO 32 points ago +33 / -1

It's crazy what our loving pets can do, when I was a kid, Gramps had a quiet calm long hair chihuahua, my gramma hated dogs, she had type1 diabetes and that friggin dog could somehow know she was about to have a blood sugar reaction 5-10 minutes before she started symptoms, he just started barking at her non stop. We should've stud him out 😁

EagleI 2 points ago +2 / -0

They've actually started training dogs for this! What a great pet your grandparents had :)

Quietam_Unum 18 points ago +18 / -0

I’d check that socket.

Damrite! Some electricians are total assholes and use the push-in contacts on the back of the outlet. Lazy is really unsafe; I had one of those arc and burn away most of the contact. Took out the outlets on the side of a 20' room. Asshole electrician also cut the wires real short so they didn't take up too much room in the box -- almost no extra wire to re-connect.

IronMaiden 8 points ago +8 / -0

Just grab the wire stretcher 😂

KickingPugilist 5 points ago +5 / -0

Yeah I always used the hooks, provided more than enough cable length for situations just like this.

In your case you'd either have to run new cable, or splice extensions onto tye previous wires, but that would leave bulky wirenuts taking up space in the already small boxes.

roadrunner0 2 points ago +2 / -0

The push in connectors that also clamp down when the screw is tightened are just fine.. It is the ones that are like those spring loaded waygo connectors that can end up getting resistive then hot then cause a fire because they melt the plastic..

Quietam_Unum 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yer right. It was the latter (spring loaded) I had to deal with. Would that they were the screw type. *sigh*

Hunter_loves_2_feet 2 points ago +2 / -0

I bet that cutting wire short is about to be epidemic. I saw what it’s going for these days. I had to hit a few places to find something today. Ventured out of my neighborhood and they have all the Romex locked up. I hate those press in turds. I’m familiar with that sound. When I first moved out kg my parents house my senior year of high school I bought a trailer made in the 70s. That thing had aluminum wiring. There’s a reason they quit that. I had to keep sockets on hand. At least back then it was all made in USA or at least available in USA made. I had a few that were getting real short when I sold that place.

Hunter_loves_2_feet 2 points ago +2 / -0

“Arc”! It was really early in the morning. I was having a brain fart and couldn’t think of the correct words. That’s it!

Pubacabra 2 points ago +2 / -0

That or there could be insects or mice behind the wall in that area.

HiddenDekuScrub 2 points ago +2 / -0

Can confirm on cat ears. Mine can pick out the sound of a familiar car engine from a block away in traffic. (And yes, this is a repost, my other comment vanished.) She knows when a family member is on the way home, and when someone she's shy around (like, the landscaper) is approaching.

Hunter_loves_2_feet 1 point ago +1 / -0

My father in-law hates cats because he saw one torture a mouse once so he thinks they are all evil. He also thinks their brains are too small to have long memories. They have a sense of smell that’s far behind ours and that hearing. They might night recognize a person on sight but a voice and a sniff and they know who it is. They know where the vet is too. The last kitten I got I opened a bag of the same kitten food I fed the last one and she went nuts. Knew that smell! What’s crazy is how they can remember where they left toys. I had one in my garage at least week. I was just thinking I should pick it up when the cat bolts through the pet door and gets it and runs back inside. They don’t forget people but I’ve talked enough. My father inlaw is WRONG! Everyone is wrong that they don’t know their names. It may take a while.

roadrunner0 1 point ago +1 / -0

I said the same thing and did not see your comment.. When doing electric work on boats/ships and in factories many places now require ferules on the ends of braided wire and for connections to have antiox contact compound applied before torquing them down.. I know parts of Europe has had this for a while..

I’d argue for many reasons your wrong, but the biggest being toxoplasmosis, and if you’re an active athletic person, dogs definitely OWN cats. YOU DO YOU THOUGH FREN.

MR_FROG_TRUMP 12 points ago +12 / -0

A bit too much anti-cat bias and cat libel in that post. Bad experience, perhaps?

Toxoplasmosis is common with filthy crazy cat ladies and outdoor barn cats.

Conservative indoor cats are vastly cleaner and better trained.

StealthToddler -15 points ago +3 / -18

Wow. I am embarrassed for you.

MR_FROG_TRUMP 8 points ago +9 / -1

Did you have a bad trauma from a crazy cat lady?

Some people love snakes. Others love parakeets or tarantulas. Some prefer dogs over cats, others prefer cats over dogs. That's the beauty of freedom.

I adore dogs so much but I adore cats just a little bit more. My experience with cats and dogs are extensive and positive.

You wanna physically cringe and feel embarrassed about that too?

Nice! I trained my cat a lot of those similar commands. People are amazed that my cat knows them, but they are honestly easier to train than dogs in my opinion. The problem is, the cat does think for itself way more than a dog and will ignore you if they feel like it lol

monkeycat2010 15 points ago +15 / -0

Ever notice in those wildlife videos how the animals walk up to the camera, even when it is camouflaged?

It is my opinion that animals can detect the electrical signals that humans cannot. Whatever is part of their senses is able to identify whatever the equipment is emitting, even with batteries.

SPEDMan64 3 points ago +4 / -1

Animals also don't register colors quite the same way we do, so what looks like excellent camo to us may not be doing anything at all as far as the animal is concerned.

That's why I tend to rely on controlling movement as many animals seem to react to sounds and motion.

Both cats and dogs can technically hear the resonating frequency of quartz crystals in like a clock circuit or something. But cats make both dogs and people look deaf by comparison. They can hear up to something like 60kHz because mice can make extremely high pitched noises. It must be a whole different world.

I love my cats. I've grown up with a lot of them and cats just have a ton of personalities. They are all different and since they aren't necessarily bred-in traits so it's more of like getting to know someone and finding if that's a good match.

My long haired white cat screams to talk but if I go outside he checks the yard and then sits nearby like the world's most obvious guard. My calico has an epic stink eye, almost no one except close loved ones have even seen her but she comes to get me if I'm too late for bed. Both hate it when I'm upset and will come to check on me. I dated a man for years and one of the things I noticed early on was how well my cats liked him.

Have that outlet and any others in that circuit checked to make sure the wires are tight on the connections.. The cats have real sensitivity to magnetic fields and noise.. A loose connection could be causing buzzing or small arc's that are making faint snapping noises and pulsing magnetic fields..

It wasn't that expensive, a one-time investment you don't have to buy food or toys for, no veterinarian visits, no ruined furniture, etc.

An EM detector is cheaper than even a free cat.

I've had cats over the years and they are awesome pets. I only have a dog now which is great but I do miss the antics with cats. I had a cat live to be 15, longest I've ever had an animal live... His name was Red, he had a sunny spot on the wooded hill behind the house he would catch the morning sun. That's where he died, looked like he was just asleep. God, I miss that cat, such a good boy. Forevermore in my heart like his brother Storm.... Cats are like dogs or anything else, they are all unique and have their own personalities. Some are assholes but some are the most awesome living creatures you will ever be blessed to know..

Cats can great, or they can be assholes. It's 50/50, you just never know which one you're gonna get.

A dog, on the other hand, is guaranteed to be your best friend, but if you get an affectionate cat, they can be more affectionate than any dog can.

StealthToddler -3 points ago +1 / -4

Typical, you share an honest opinion about something and anyone who disagrees just piles on like a bunch of reddit fags.

I don't hate cats, I just don't like them. I don't trust them. Their behavior is selfish and self serving. Yes, there are some "less bad" cats, but there's no such thing as a Good Kitty, period.

But, if you don't gush about your effusive adoration for cats you get retarded faggots who just want to give people shit.

It's my own fault for being honest. You people obviously prefer lies, so here goes:

Cats are sooo wonderful, I love them, they're awesome and nice, they never scratch or bite for ambiguous reasons only they understand, I plan to get a whole herd of cats and teach them to be like Walter the cat in the Chevy truck commercials! Goody goody good, I can't fucking wait.


Okay, bring on the hate in 3.. 2.. 1..
