Hi. I love both kittens and puppies. We only own an adorable female chocolate lab puppy named Hershey. Her AKC name is Hershey's Kisses II. We've had Hershey since 11 weeks old. She is now 22 weeks old.
Perhaps, someday we'll get also a kitten. From what I recall though about growing up with kittens/cats is that they tend to scratch a lot and tend to ruin furniture far more than a dog. We will need to give considerable thought about getting a kitten since I don't want my new couch ripped by claws. Also, puppies are more children friendly than kittens.
I've had both all my life, until now. We only have a dog... my husband hates cats....anyway, I love them both but I would have to call myself a cat person, though I put a lot of time and energy into my dog too and would consider myself a "dog enthusiaist". So, tough choice. If I lived by myself, I'd probably have multiple cats and dogs! :)
