    Cats and dogs are the two most popular pets in the world, but were domesticated for different reasons, so, naturally, there has been endless debate over which animal is the best.

    I am not fond of pets of any species, but it would be nice if there was an animal that combined the best traits of both cats and dogs, to end the endless debate.

    Does anyone here know of any animal, that, like a dog, can be trained to perform numerous useful tasks for humans, but, like a cat, is quiet, grooms itself, and can be trained to control its excretory functions?

    No, there really isn't.

    The popular comment will be a fox.

    The meme comment will be the cartoon "Catdog".

    I am quite sure the OP is looking for an animal with at least a reasonable chance of domestication. Hyenas are wild animals. They are not capable of domestication whatsoever.

    So were cats and dogs, at some stage, no?

    P.S.
    I'm actually against the domestication (artificial) of wild animals

    Rats!

    They can do tricks like doggies.



    Are very cuddly and affectionate.


    Last I checked they don't scream.
    ...
    And they can be litter box trained.
    My rats were very good. No poops outside the litter box. And no pee aside from some earlier scent marking and the time my little sister squeezed Turkey and she got terrified and pissed all over my leg T___T.

    Anyways, rats are great <3 !

    Edit: hmmmm "numerous useful tasks for humans"
    IF IT MAKES ME SMILE IT IS USEFUL!

    @LesExit, you actually make rats seem fairly appealing, so, in the chance that I am ever in a situation where my partner wishes to have a pet, I will suggest a rat.

    I'm so glad I was able to advocate for rats :catblush!!! Rats truly are amazing pets. They bond very closely to you.

    Just remember that you need at least 2 babies.

    Honestly I'd say the worst part about having them is that they live an average of 2-3 years...which is sucky given just how close you grow to them. But those years will be filled with lots of good memories I promise!

    If you ever get them and you're still around NF, I'd love to know :D

    Why? Being less popular than cats and dogs does not make rats a less feasible option.

    The Chumbawamba is a the perfect combination of both.


    You can knock it down, and it'll get back up again. The only downside is that it pisses the night away.

    Buy Raccoon. It would be good investment. It is cunning as cat and familiar(if you train it) like a dog.

    I can't think of other animals that can be as obedient as a dog and as useful (therapy dogs, grabbing you a beer, emotional support, etc).
    Birds especially parrots are crazy intelligent and can get cuddly as well. They can be potty trained and do tricks on command. Thing is.......... they can be massive jerks when they want to be.
    Got a parrot of my own, still training him. He loves head scratches and doesn't do tricks yet.
    Also have three dogs, some other small birds, African cichlids, two iguanas and a bearded dragon. My oldest iguana is tame. And the beardie too. They also do alright in keeping me company.

    What kind of parrot? I have..several of my own. I do not train them to do tricks or anything, I just enjoy their personalities, and yes, they are very smart and can be very sweet

    Birds are a huge commitment and costly though, I do not recommend them to most people.
