Cats vs Dogs

Now What?: Write what comes next.
This Saturday, there will be an epic battle between cats and dogs.
Which group will claim victory and why?

Yes, this is a bit of a repeat but the responses were great. I'm seriously considering replacing a daily cue with some sort of debate question.

We Have A Winner!!! 03/18/10
Cats take the high ground. Dogs tire of barking and eventually break off to pee on trees and hump each other.

Cats cannot act as a cohesive unit and will never mount a coordinated attack.

Regardless, war ends when dinner is served.
Winner: TM (@trmink)
Reason: From my experience, this is all true. And probably why the debate continues - there's really never going to be a winner. It's not in their natures.

The cats.

They will be unveiling their new secret weapon.

Lars, the Norwegian Blue Parrot that was reportedly eaten last month was in fact captured by agents of the Ministry of Extraordinary Operations and Warfare.(MEOW)
Under threat of consumption, he is being trained to say "Bad Dog! Sit! Roll over! Play Dead!"

The cat high-command believe this should be enough to destroy morale in the dog-soldiers, and hopefully cause panic and confusion in the lines.

"We might even see some friendly-fire casualties if the Great Danes roll onto the Chihuahuas." A spokesman said, preening his whiskers with glee.

In an epic battle, the cats and dogs have met on the battle field once and for all to determine who is truly superior. The cats took an early lead by adding dog whistles to their drum and fife corps. This took out an entire battalion, greatly reducing the ranks on the side of the dogs. However, the dogs then revealed their secret weapon and began to lob Catnip bombs into the ranks of the cats. Within 5 minutes the cats had forgotten where they were and why they were wearing such silly uniforms as they happily chased their tails and leaped into the air to perform back flips, or just laid contentedly in the grass staring at the clouds passing overhead. As the dogs held aloft the captured flag of their opponents, one quipped "just say no to drugs!".

Watery eyes, runny nose--it's a crime.
And my Zyrtec? It ain't worth a dime.
In the allergy games,
I won't name names,
But cats win--by a sneeze--every time.

as a cat AND dog lover, i must sadly admit that dogs are just too dumb to beat the cats.

i mean really...the cats would just have to shake a bag of "beggin strips".

smart will always win over wagging tails and loyalty.

unless we're talking about "the bachelor" show.

After plotting for minutes the cat begins the battle with a sneak attack using the dreaded paw swat. The dog was dazed from the being woken from his fifth nap of the day but he just wagged his tail with a goofy look on his face.

Cat, infuriated by the dogs response, strikes again with a hiss and quickly is taken over as the dog tackles him. With one long, wet lick the dog wets the cat from scruff to tail.

With a yowl the cat jumps three feet in the air and shoots like a rocket to the highest point in the house. There he grooms his wasted fur and plots for next time.

Meanwhile the dog, completely unaware that he was just in a battle for the ages, plodes off to the kitchen where his person gives him a bone and a pat on the head.

Good dog.
