Dogs or Cats : QOTD

What is good about having a pet?

Well, having owned quite a few pets (dogs, cats, chickens) from a young age, I can tell you that they are certainly both a good thing and a bad thing. The bad thing with dogs is usually poor training or the fact that we forgot to put the bin outside, so it was shredded by Nina and, now, Dobby. Dogs are amazing because in my mind they are on the specially challenged end of the seesaw in comparison with a cat’s intellect. Dogs are big, they jump on you, sit on your head (thanks, Dobby), and provide all sorts of soft cuddliness. They might occasionally trash the house, but you can’t stay mad at them for long.

Now, cats. Oh, dear. They can leave you with lifelong scars all over your body in an instant. The only time you realize that you have been assaulted is when the blood starts dripping from the needle-like claws, puncturing you like a needle. BUT wait, there is something about cats though. You can never put your finger on it. You can see it in their eyes as they track your movements, wondering where to strike next. But no. You pull out the catnip, and suddenly, you have one chilled cat. After the mandatory running laps around the house, they pass out. Cats are harder to please, whereas a dog is just a dog. Cats are more evil and cunning.


In conclusion, dogs are easy to please and they will love you endlessly. They will trust you no matter what. They are there for hugs and can listen to you talk about how crappy your day was. Cats are good for catching mice, flies, spiders, and… well, they are a tough one. But they make you smile. You can talk to them for hours, share a little cheese with them, and when they aren’t cutting you up, they sit in your lap and claim victory against dogs.

Wanderlust: My Dream Destinations

I’ve always been a bit of an adventurer at heart, and one of my biggest dreams is to travel the world and experience different cultures. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit a few places already, but there are still so many countries on my bucket list.


Germany is one of the countries I’m most eager to visit. I’ve always been fascinated by German history and culture, and I would love to see some of the country’s famous landmarks, such as the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag Building. I’m also interested in trying some of the traditional German food, such as schnitzel and sauerkraut.

Norway is another country that has always appealed to me. I’m drawn to the country’s stunning natural beauty, with its fjords, mountains, and glaciers. I would love to go hiking in the Norwegian countryside and experience the Northern Lights.

New Zealand

New Zealand is a country that I’ve always wanted to visit since I was a kid. I’m fascinated by the country’s unique culture and its beautiful scenery. I would love to visit the Lord of the Rings filming locations and go whale watching in the South Island.

Of course, I would also love to visit America. There are so many different places to see in this vast country, from the bustling cities of New York and Los Angeles to the Grand Canyon and the Great Smoky Mountains. I’m also interested in learning more about American history and culture.

Spider-Free Travel

I do have one exception to my travel plans: I don’t plan on visiting Australia. I’m not a big fan of spiders, and Australia is home to some of the world’s most venomous arachnids. I’m sure Australia is a beautiful country, but I’ll have to pass on it for now.

Making the Dream a Reality

I know that traveling to so many different countries can be expensive, but I’m determined to make my dream a reality. I’m already starting to save up money, and I’m also researching ways to travel more affordably. I’m also learning about the different cultures of the countries I want to visit so that I can make the most of my time there.
