Birds are better than both cats and dogs.
1. They fly, and if you tame them, will fly to you when you call them. A pet that flies to you? +500 points.
2. No smell.
3. Very easy to clean
4. They love you and cuddle you as good as any dog can if they are tamed.
5. They can talk, TALK! +1000 points.
6. You can cage them when you have to leave the house, and guess what, the cage is their home, so they feel perfectly ok and comfortable in it, no whining.
Deal with that, suckas.
