I prefer cats. I love them. I have two cats - Lila, my female cat, is all black, and Nabucco, my male cat, is completely white. They fight with each other all day. They are not complementary, I'm affraid.

I love and dogs and cats, I think this pets is very fine each in its own way, but prefer to keep in my home two cats - girl and boy.

I prefer dogs instead of cats because they are more loyal than cats, altough dogs usually are more demanding of time, they always are waiting for you. Cats just need someone whom feed them, they don't care who does it really.
