Dogs belong outside and cats belong inside. Dogs should be on a leash unless well-trained and in a park that allows dogs. People that walk dogs and don't pick up their #2 are disgusting pigs.

Cats that are turned loose outside are prone to causing trouble in the neighborhood, diseases, and getting killed by predators. I don't like seeing "barn cats". They all have that funky eye problem.

Cats odors can be minimized. Dogs' urine can get right into that wood subfloor and ruin a house too.

lol, well I hope I don't actually fall into that category just yet

Thanks to all for the comments though, it did make me realize that, as in many things, the actions of a few result in consequences for the majority! My cats are very well trained (as have the cats I have owned over many years) but seems that many are not! Also the allergy thing was something I had not really thought about but is a valid reason to not accept them in rental properties. Shall just limit my search to those properties that are happy to negotiate, and ultimately if I decide to stay in the US I will at that stage buy rather than rent!

Here's our Maine Coon;



Guess who cleans the catbox? That's right. Me. I'm the only one on the planet who cleans those things often enough, the way they should be. Whenever I housesit for friends and family who have cats, nasty. If you're not cleaning those cat boxes at least twice/week, that's cat abuse and house abuse imo.
I firmly agree with you on the box cleaning issue; we have 4 cats (that share two large boxes), and they both get scooped daily. Takes less than 5 minutes and everyone is happy. IMHO, spraying happens sometimes due to an improperly maintained box. You wouldn't want to use a pluggedup toiled full of crap, would you? Eeeeewwww.

We've also been cat owners for years and years and have never had any of them spray.
