According to polling done by the Associated Press, there are a lot of people out there who just don’t get it:

Clearly, there are dog people and there are cat people. But it’s not much of a contest: 74 percent of people like dogs a lot, and only 41 percent like cats a lot.

Cats win the dislike vote handily, according to an Associated poll. Fifteen percent of the adults questioned said they disliked cats a lot while the number who said they disliked dogs a lot was just 2 percent.

Joseph Moreus, 61, of Westminster, Calif., understands why dogs come out on top.

“They have more personality. They are loyal,” he said. “Cats are all about cats but dogs are interested in pleasing their owners. Cats don’t care if they please you or not.”

And that’s just the point. Cats aren’t suck-ups. If they like you, they show it; if they don’t, they don’t pretend. Cats are just superior in every way. Hey, don’t point that Web cam at me…
