When we talk of friendliness, enmity or other emotional relations with animals, this is not exactly like human relations. Neither a dog nor a cat nor any other animal can really be man's friend. every animal is a distinct creature and not made as man's friend or enemy.
After discovering use of an animal, we domesticate them and use to our advantage. Thus stray dogs are not our friends. Having discovered the various qualities of dog, we domesticated, trained and used for various purposes like play, watch keeping, detective work etc. This is also about other animals like cows, oxen, horses whom we domesticated for our own purpose. In a way, we consider all useful animals as our friends and harmful animals as our enemy. Thus mosquito is our enemy and lizard our friend.

My sister adopted a stray kitten and named it 'whiskey'. Whiskey was well trained to behave as my sister has a penchant for cleanliness. It would stay in a corner if my sister is not around. When my sister leaves to work, it also leaves and likewise when she arrives,it also arrives. There has been times where her neighbors reported that whiskey was hiding near their door because my sister was not around.
It was almost like a dog but a noiseless one. It played fetch with us, buttered our legs and mewed that was soft to our ears. I had a really wonderful experience with a cat
Moreover, due to the present age; we prefer to stay in a community that is noise free and free from mice. Cats are a better bet as they like not only the place, but also the owner. It will scratch unknown predators and catch mice with ease. It is a very good pet for those who likes to cuddle, as cats love to snuggle. Cats dont bark like dogs do in middle of the night and they are noiseless when compared to dogs.
Dogs on the other hand barks in middle of the night and may disturb you with its presence. Yes, i agree there are many good aspects of a dog , but most of the time dogs stink and it is very difficult to get it cleaned.
Cats are seen cleaning themselves and always ready for action. They donot need to be told what is to be done, so when cats try new things, we get inspired to try new stuff too.Cats dont mess around licking everyone like dogs. This way we can assure our self of noise free and mess free environment.
