About This Quiz

In the world of pets, there's a Pepsi vs. Coke competition between cats and dogs. No one ever asks if you're a fish or a lizard person. They want to know if you're a dog person or a cat person. And cat people tend to know that they're superior in this little showdown. You need to walk your dog no matter what the weather is like. You need to carry bags to pick up its poop. You need to deal with that wet dog smell. No, cats are winning the battle between pets on pretty much every front.
