A dog will flatter you but you have to flatter the cat. —George Mikes
Dogs tend to be happy and just want to make us happy too. Cats don’t care if they make us happy. They are far too independent. Yet, if we want them to stick around, we need to let them know and show them we want to make them happy.
You can keep a dog; but it is the cat who keeps people, because cats find humans useful domestic animals. —George Mikes
Dogs are happy to be with us. They assume we are their pack leader. Cats like to have someone looking after them. Then they can relax and play all day long as we take care of them.
