I live in a city and wouldn't want it any other way. The country is a great place to visit, but I choose not to live there.

Do you like where you live? City/suburbs or country?

I've lived both country and city. Country is my preference for the serenity; peace and quiet, and open spaces.
Since my wife has special needs we have to live in the city near the medical centers.

City mouse here. Will be interested to see the results here because I always feel like I'm in the minority as a city dweller.

I guess you could say that I'm a city "mouse", but I reckon that if I had to be... I could be a country "mouse" too, y'all!

I always would say I want to live in the country. But, I'm in town and like it just fine!

I really want to move and be a country mouse instead of a small town mouse. My kitties need field mice to catch.

You can't live in the streets if you live in the country!

I can't really say that I'm a CITY mouse; I grew up in a suburb of a major Midwestern city, and hated it.

But I'm certainly not a country mouse, either; I like visiting the countryside, but the lifestyle would drive me buggy after a while.

So maybe you could describe me as a big-town/small-city mouse? I'd never live in Manhattan, and in fact I would be every bit as disoriented as the country mouse in the fable if I tried, but a city of about 200K or so people is just about right for me.

Country bred, born, raised then did the same when I started a family so will die country I am sure. At least in my heart in case of major health problems down the road makes me go live in a city place.
