THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CATS AND DOGS

I took a social media workshop last week that covered Facebook, Twitter, Triberr, Blogs, and Newsletters. Today, I have a social media hangover. Today, I feel like this:

LAZY

Today, I’m going to let other talented folks write my post for me. If you haven’t seen the YouTube video entitled “Cat-Friend vs. Dog-Friend,” YOU MUST! It’s by Fat Awesome Films. They’ve made 2 videos, so make sure you watch them both. The first one has had over ten million views. It’s funny, funny stuff.

CAT-DOG DIARY

Here’s one more video you have to see also perfectly illustrating the difference between cats and dogs. It’s taken with a phone, but make sure you stick it out until the very end.

dogs vs cats

Are you a cat person or a dog person?

    OMG I am laughing soo hard!! I have been the proud owner of both cats and dogs, and both of these videos capture them perfectly!! Right now I currently own a dog—my pug Brewski–and he never ceases to make me laugh every day with his weird little quirks. Thanks for bringing me so much laughter today!

      I was thinking of you and your little pugster when I posted this! “I know MM will be able to relate to this and find it funny,” I said to myself. I’m so glad you did!

    Holy crap, that is hilarious! I am definitely a cat guy, dogs often drop slobbery tennis balls into my crotch and just stand there staring at me. However, cats do love to give you the Egyptian anus greeting. If you are so inclined, check out this post I wrote a while ago from the point of view of my cat when I’m in a bad mood.

      Hahah, that’s a great post! I love the Egyptian anus greeting. If you’ve ever had to give a cat a pill, you will totally relate to this!
      HOW TO GIVE A CAT A PILL (and a dog)

      Pick the cat up and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat’s mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth, pop pill in. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.

      Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat again in left arm and repeat process.

      Retrieve cat from bedroom, and throw soggy pill away.

      Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm while holding back paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right forefinger. Hold mouth shut to the count of ten.

      Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from the top of wardrobe.

      Call spouse from garden.

      Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, holding front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand, while forcing wooden ruler into mouth with the other. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat’s throat vigorously.

      Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap. Make a note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for gluing later.

      Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with ear just visible from below armpit. Put pill in end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil, insert end of straw and BLOW.

      Check label to make sure pill is not harmful to humans and drink a beer to take away the taste. Apply Band-Aid to spouse’s forearm and remove blood from carpet with cold water and soap.

      Retrieve cat from neighbor’s shed. Get another pill. Open another beer. Place cat in cupboard and close door onto neck just leaving head showing. Force mouth open with dessert spoon. Flick pill down throat with rubber band.

      Fetch screwdriver from garage and put cupboard door back on hinges. Drink beer. Fetch bottle of Scotch. Pour a shot and drink. Apply cold compress to cheek and check records for last date of tetanus shot. Bathe cheek with whiskey to disinfect. Toss back another shot. Throw bloody, torn t-shirt away and fetch another form bedroom.Then call fire department to retrieve the f—ing cat from the tree across the street.

      Apologize to neighbor who crashed into fence while swerving to avoid cat.

      Take last pill from foil wrap. Tie the little bastard’s front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table. Get heavy duty pruning gloves from shed. Push pill into mouth, followed by a large piece of steak. Be rough about it. Hold head vertically and pour two liters of water down throat to wash pill down.

      Consume remainder of Scotch. Get spouse to drive you to emergency room. Sit quietly while doctor stitches your fingers and forearm, and removes remnants of pill from your eye. Call furniture shop on way home to order new table.

      Arrange for pound to collect “mutant cat from hell”, and call local pet shop to see if they have any hamsters.

      HOW TO GIVE A DOG A PILL:

      Wrap it in bacon.

    Hahaha! I didn’t get a notification that you had responded or I would surely have commented on this earlier – This is SO accurate! God forbid that a cat find a place it shouldn’t go (i.e. over a fence, on a porch, etc) holy frick, it’s like being on the German side of the Great Escape. My doctor wonders why I need so many tranquilizers.

      I have 3 cats at present. I used to have 7! My 3, plus 2 that a friend dumped on me, and 2 strays that both ended up dropping dead in my yard. Boy, did I go through a lot of catfood. The people in my complex call me the Cat Lady, because my cats follow me when I walk the Diva. Of course, I will be known as “Crazy Cat Lady” once I reach a certain age, have replaced men with cats, and am yelling at kids to “stay off my lawn!”

    I currently have 2 dogs and 1 cat. I had 2 cats but the good 1 died. The remaining cat is a vomiting terrorist. I found him in the yard when he was a kitten and I should have left him there. My big dog is awesome. Someone on the next block was going to put him in a shelter so I took him in. Best dog ever. My little dog is bad. And curled up under a blanket on my lap right now sleeping like a little angel. SHHHH. for the love of god don’t wake her.

      That’s so funny, because one of my cats is bulimic! A teenager in my complex begged me to watch her kitten until her mom could pick it up the next day and I never saw her again. So that’s how I wound up with Cat #3. Cat #3 who vomits every other time she eats. Vomits on the carpet, and never the floor. Go figure.
