DOGS vs CATS – Who Will Win? Leave us your comments and find out! 👇 We take the old rivalry between felines and canines and see who will be the winner and we do so by taking a scientific approach. We look at some of the factors which make both dogs and cats appealing to we humans and see what research we can use to declare a winner. This includes pitting dogs and cats against each other in terms of physical attractiveness, amount of fun they are to be around, cleanliness, affection, ease of care and more. Of course the scientific method when deciding whether dogs or cats are better is limited. We need your help to let us know what you think in the comments below.
