    Cats love us in spite of our being human.

    Dogs love us because we are human.

    Actually, studies have shown no increase in oxytocin in cats during interactions with humans. On the other hand, during interactions with humans and even for a while after, the oxytocin levels in dogs spikes. What does this mean? That your cat does not love you at all, while your dog does.

    Hm. I don't know. I had one cat that was especially close to me, and cried when I left for two weeks once. My family told me that she spent the entire time in the window watching for me to return. She also used to comfort me when I cried. (She'd rub up against me and offer to let me pet her. Once I was no longer crying she'd get up and leave.)
    It is far easier to connect to dogs. They seem to desire the companionship a lot more. I miss having a dog.

    Dogs have masters.

    Cats have servants.
