    the five star rating I'm giving is not for the book, but for cats. Cats are definitely better than dogs and it was super sucky that this book ended in a tie. Cats are cuter, funnier, prettier, more independent, and smarter that dogs!

      This book was boring. I knew pretty much all of this in a longer bigger book. Do not read this terrible book! I think dog and cats are equally the best as well!

            Overall I think dogs should win because they were the first animals we domesticated, over 15,000 years ago and they can hunt, help disabled, military work, and save lives untrained or not.
