Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: Do you have a Dog or a Cat ? Do you agree with this statement?

Do you have a Dog or a Cat ? Do you agree with this statement?

I do not have any pets but when we were growing up we had a dog. I have never had a cat so I do not know much about cats.

The other day I was reading the carrier pigeon and I saw the following, 

A dog has a master , A cat has a staff. I do not know who wrote this. 

I believe that whether it is a dog or a cat. they are the masters in most homes.
National Cat day is October 29 in United states. and International cat day is August 8. 

August 26 is National Dog Day.

What is your experience?.

Good morning, Gita Bantwal sounds like the cat is "high maintenance"....

Posted by Barbara Todaro, "Franklin MA Homes" (RE/MAX Executive Realty ) 15 days ago

Good Morning Gita Bantwal 

We've had 3 dogs and as many cats along with a bird or two. I prefer a dog. Our 3rd son seemed to have a way with cats

All of my cats have 'chosen' me... and the latest addition showed up in the back yard and decided he was going to live inside. And as strange as I know it sounds, we had very little choice in the matter... so I guess we are his 'staff', but be love him and his big personality.

Barbara, sounds like it but I always thought they are easier to take care of.

Dena, he is a smart cat. He knew exactly where to go.

We had a dog growing up, but that's a long time ago.

Interestng for sure,  I never had a cat but now my Brandy, She knew i was the master, I still miss her.

Gita,

I have had both cats and dogs.  One of the reasons we do not have a dog is that they are higher maintenance than a cat.  And with our travel schedule, it is easier for us.  A

Cats are simply not as needy. Dogs want your attention while (most) cats can take it or leave it, as long as you feed them and pet them when they want to be fed or petted.

Some dogs have masters. (I know this because I've read about it.)

I believe ours are like cats. Although we do expect them to follow a few basic rules, like staying out of the trash and coming when called - they do have staff.

Hi Gita - when I was growing up we had a dog and then another when we got married.  Dogs are loyal companions.  I do not know much about cats.

Dogs listen and obey, for the most part, their masters. Cats listen to no one and do their own thing. Our cat Charlotte runs our home. Charlotte employs myself and my husband as her "staff" to tend too her every want and need. Mostly wants

Hi Gita- I've had both dogs and cats but primarily dogs. I think some cats don't care if you're there or not as long as they have food and water...or unless they want you around. Dogs, on the other hand, love you unconditionally and will take as much attention as you want to give them.

Gita! What a cute post and I think you are right... the house dog or cat is the master or  mistress of the house!

Debe,Charlotte is lucky to have a wonderful staff.

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) 14 days ago

Kathy, I agree about dogs loving unconditionally.

I don't have any pets either, Gita.  But this certainly appears to be true with all of my neighbors.

Posted by Gabe Sanders, Stuart Florida Real Estate (Real Estate of Florida specializing in Martin County Residential Homes, Condos and Land Sales) 14 days ago

Gita, From my experience, dogs tend to enjoy having a master.  Cats generally have a friend/master and will accommodate their master when they know it is in their best interest.
