Symbolically, do you treat your employer the way a cat treats its owner or a dog treats its owner, at least when it comes to Loyalty?

Loyalty is a two-way street.

Screw employers. It's a dog eat dog world. That's why it's better to be a cat.

I don't treat anyone like an animal so there is no way for me to compare the two.

Indeed. As an employee you are simply an expense that the employer would rather eliminate.

Wrong. An employee is a facilitator of revenue. An employee who earns their keep is treated with dignity and respect by any sensible business owner, or manager.

Probably more so in the higher end/high paying occupations. I have spent the bulk of my life in the low wage world like retail where employers prefer a revolving door.

The out come of ones relationship during employment largely depend on the the employees devotion to the job.
Grant you I have had jobs that the employer had his favorites ,so no matter the sacrifices some one made out side that favoritism ,it didn't matter. In this case I have my eye out for a better job.
The cost is the loss of that employee to some one else that would recognize their value.
On the other hand recognition for having a genuine interest in the companies success does get rewarded from better employers, and a mutual bond is established.
In this case I am willing to invest more into the job I am doing.
So in some cases ,it largely depends on the employer, as to whether I am to respond as a dog or a cat.

Loyalty does not come into play in the workplace.

Has anyone's boss looked them in the face and formally ask anyone to be loyal? Most likely not.

Loyalty is something people make up in their minds but is never really asked for by employers.
