Narges writes "I like cats more than dogs because I think cats havent any dangerous for our healty but dogs arent clean and can give up virouses anywhere around of us. I like sound of cats its very lovely.but sounds of dogs is very scary. Anyway I prefer to dont keep any cat or dog in my house. I think home isnt a place for keeping animals like these. these animals arent suit for should be peacefull place for relaxing .these animals make home messy and bad smelling. i want to have a pretty house ."
