The Cats vs Dogs Event began on December 3, 2010 and ended December 7, 2010.

The reason for this mini-event is unknown, its resulting end brought a new achievements badge and a temporary 'Pets' discussion forum located in the Hot Topics forum. It is likely the event was created in response to a survey taken by Gaians, who wanted to see more events on the site, and also mini-events being a way to make use the Gaia Achievements feature.

OverviewEdit

An epic battle between our favorite pets... what?

CATS vs DOGS

Which are better: cats or dogs? Cast your vote to get into your
party's forum. You only get one vote, so make it count.
Smarter Than You Your Best Friend

Cats represent the finer things in life. We're intelligent, graceful and most of all, independent. When I hunt mice, I do it because I love to, not because I'm following some human's command. Like, you know, a dumb old dog.

And you know what else I love to do? Be the cutest. Nap in the sun. Bite people. Have a fuzzy belly. Don't you want to rub my fuzzy belly? This certainly isn't a trick so I can bite your hand.

[Choose Cats!]

Friends, in these difficult times, we can't lose sight of the values that made our society great. Values like friendship. Compassion. Walkies. Dogs like me embody these small-town virtues through thick and thin-- unlike cats, those duplicitous elitists, who would mooch your kibble in good years and bite your face off as soon as times were lean.

Choose faith and loyalty, friends. Choose biscuits and romps on the beach. Choose dogs.

[Choose Dogs!]

  • Dec 2: Official Feline Party Introduction

Welcome to the party of cats. You have chosen wisely-- cats always do. Here in the cat forum we live freely, without fences or leashes, guided by the timeless wisdom the gods gave the feline race at the dawn of time. We can take care of ourselves just fine; you don't need to tie a cat up to keep it from acting stupid.

What was the first domesticated species? Humans-- the cats tamed them long ago!

Over the millennia our humans have created an archive of stories, pictures, jokes, songs, movies and other tributes to the greatness of the cat. Now, as we prepare to go head to head with the party of dogs, we need to collect those documents as evidence to prove that cats are-- and always will be-- the coolest thing around. Or even better, make some original cat artwork. No one appreciates the free creative spirit more than cats!

There will be an official election on Monday Dec 6th. Your vote counts!

Squeeee! I saw a string and it was moving so fast! I've got to catch it! My little kitten paws keep slipping on this wood floor! It's so tricky being a cute little kitten.

This time I'm sure to get it! Squeeee, where did it go? That string sure is a tricky one! Dogs will put your grandmother in a cage and feed her squirrel pellets. Now I found that string!

Oh no, how did it get away again?! *hugs*

Real nice to see you, friends.

Thanks for voting Dog. I know those cats tried to give you the ol’ okey-doke with their fancy talk and their big-city values, but they couldn’t fool you-- you know what you value, and it’s good times, good pals and a safe, secure future.

I know times are tough out there. There are a lot of evil forces out there that hate our freedom-- mailmen, garbage trucks and whatnot. But you don’t have to live in fear. Dogs can protect you. We know how to bark, and we know who to bark at because we know what we believe. We know how to draw a line in the sand, and we know how to keep digging and digging in that sand until we find that smell.

You ever seen a cat on the beach? Now, I’m not trying to imply anything by that. I’m just saying.

Anyway, folks, I thought you might like to meet one of my real good friends: Pugeot. He’s our new Minister of Canine Information, and let me tell you, he’s a straight shooter. Heck of a guy. Yup, I think you’ll like him just fine.

There will be an official election on Monday Dec 6th. Your vote counts!

My dearest party faithful,

With heavy heart I report that Buxom, our respected Minister of Canine Information, has been asked to resign his post following a scandal: photographs have surfaced of Buxom eating a turkey off the counter, an action quite unbefitting of his station. Reluctantly, and with great humility, I have agreed to fill Buxom’s vacant office.

With all due respect to Buxom’s mostly honorable tenure as Minister of Canine Information, I harbored many philosophical disagreements with his policies; while he sought to appease the cats and find common ground between our species, I intend to execute the duties of my office with considerably more vigor. In this conflict, there is no longer any place for moderate voices.

Please, do not think me a bigot. I harbor no hatred of any one species. However, the people must be informed of the very real menace posed by cats. They are dishonest, dangerous and unclean.

Would it be prejudicial to say that cats do their dirty business in little boxes of sand, and then scratch their paws in that very same sand before climbing onto the laps of their masters? No; it is a verified fact.

Would you call me a liar if I told you that cats are lazy and shiftless, and spend hours every day sleeping, sunbathing and licking themselves? Would it be a lie to say that they often resort to biting and scratching when their masters interrupt their languor? Certainly not.

Could I be accused of unfairness in asserting that cats carry the foul diseases of their rodent prey? Is it hateful to cite very real scientific facts, such as that cats spread brain-rotting toxoplasmosis to their unwitting human owners?

No. I don’t intend to spread hatred of cats, my friends. I only intend to spread information.

Good day.

P.S. - It has come to my attention that many repugnant lies have spread about me, including absurd accusations that I somehow orchestrated Buxom’s turkey scandal. For the health of the party, these baseless rumors and innuendoes should be ignored.

  • Dec 06: Dogs are stinky!

But that's not the point.

Cause, squeeeee! I saw this ball yesterday!
And it was all stringy and yarny and soft!
And the more I played with it, the less ball there was...

Until there was no ball, and it was just a lot of string...

*Sniffles.*

OH! BUT BUT BUT eeeee!
Then I played with that string and it got all over me and it was so FUN!

So that's why you should vote cats.
Heeheehee!

*Sprinkles old kitty litter in the dogs' food.*
*Plays with yarn.*
*Purrs.*

  • Dec 06: Squeeeeee!

This ball of yarn is just so, soooo, sooo fast! *flails*

My little kitten paws aren't meant for such fast yarn!
Wheeeee, oh wait, WAIT there it is!

*Pounces*

No! It wasn't my string, it was a human's, they have strings on their feet!
Dogs chew up shoes, try to eat you and steal your souls!
They really ruin good string!
Oh wait... humans.

*rubs on your leg*
*Purrrrrrrrzzzzzzz*

  • Dec 6: Dogs are so--

Wait! Squee! Oh my gosh.
What's that!?

*Stares at a red dot on the wall.*

Ohmygod it moved!
No, come back here shiny thing!

*Pounces it*

Did I get it? Eeeee! Did I did I did I did I?
...Oh whiskers!
Wait, there it is!
No, there! Eeeeeheeheeheehee!
Gah, this thing is peskier than a dog! Did you know they go to the bathroom outside? Nasty!
Come back here shiny!

*Pounces again*

Wh-where'd it go...?

*Sniffles.*

  • Dec 7: Squeeeeeeeeeeee! Omigosh!

Oh my gosh!
We won!?
We won we won we won!

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
This is almost as great as that time I caught the string on a stick!

*Dumps water on a dog's bed.*

Cause cause cause cause!
I kept pouncing at it, right?
Pew pew pew!

*Hisses*

But it kept getting away!

THEN!
I got it.
Teehee!


  • Dec 7: N...no! No no no no no!

What!?
B-but!

*Sniffles*

But but but but we won!
We won!

I don't understand!
I...I've been a good kitty!
I even let a mouse go this morning.
It had little babies!

This...
This is so not shiny.
This is like...

*Sprinkles glass shards in the King Dog's chair.*

This is worse than that time the red dot got away.

*Mews sadly.*

  • Dec 10: A Formal Investigation Has Been Opened

Felines big and small, short-haired and long, spotted and striped, fat and thin-- lend me your pointy ears, for we have been wronged.

We know we are the best. We know people love us most. This vote was a mere formality, a polite gesture to throw those slobbering clods a bone. I don't know why it happened at all-- I guess I was busy trying to swat a fly stuck against the window when it was being arranged. In any case, I think we all knew from the beginning which species was the superior. (Maybe the dogs didn't know, but that's only because they're so dumb).

Our exit polls showed cats with a clear lead throughout the duration of Cats vs. Dogs 2k10. You, my fellow cats and cat lovers, surely saw the same. Even you dogs, assuming you can understand numbers or can tell when one line is longer than the line next to it would know that cats had this in the bag.

I'm calling it: election fraud. There, I said it. The cat's out of the bag, you cheating dogs. And you can't put a cat back in a bag.

If any of you out there have evidence to prove the dogs' crime, please come forward. I'm creating a task force to investigate. Litigation is not out of the question.

  • Dec 6: A walk

Hello dear friends!

I am glad to see you today! Please, walk with me as we converse.

It is good for the soul to walk with a dog, you know.

While on my daily rounds to assist my human counterpart, I came across a baseless indictment that dogs are stinky! While some of us canines might seem to be stinky, this is only a side effect of our selfless nature.

Who else is going to check through your trash to see if you've recycled?

Who else, but a dog, will guard your home against skunks attempting to intrude upon your sanctum?

I assure you that we have nothing but the best intentions for our humans. Even if it means sacrificing our lives, nay our very scents for you, we shall.

Thank you for this walk, my friend. You are quite good at it. I hope this may be the first of many more.


  • Dec 7 How dare they!?

grrrrrrroollll! Someone's been poll tampering, that's what it is. I have a lead on the party responsible and will sniff out the perpetrator post haste! A ballot stuffer will not escape this keen nose, dear friends. If you have any information regarding the cat's obviously fabricated win, please send your findings to me and they shall be dealt with.

WOOF-ARF-YIP!


  • Dec 7 Good Dogs!

I knew it! Those filthy cats skewed the poll results!

Groooowwwwwllllll!

But look! We've won after all! Dog lovers and fellow dogs, rejoice! Our superiority has been proven!

See? DOGS! WOOF!

YIP - WOOF!

  • Dec 10: Congratulations Dogs, and Welcome to the Pets! Forum

Friends, isn't this a glorious day? Doesn't the air just seem to taste sweeter and the sun to shine brighter?

You know what that taste is? Hope. And maybe some kibbles stuck in your back teeth. You know what that bright light is? The future, friends-- our future together. We chased a dream and caught it in mid-air. Then we shook it and shook it and shoot it some more. Now it's ours to relish and chew around the edges.

And you know what that smell is? Pee, because when we dreamed this dream we marked it as our own.

Now there have been some allegations, I know. I don't want to ruin this day dwelling on it but I can't ignore them, either. Cats will flap their gums, it's a fact. They always got something to say, always trying to bring someone else down. It can't be helped.

You know what I'm going to do about it? Stay positive. Dig a hole. Try to lick the inside of someone's nose. Don't let the cats bring you down to their level. You start worrying what a cat says, boy, you're gonna have a lot to worry about.

So congratulations, friends. We couldn't have done it without you. This is a victory that belongs to us all.

Dev AlertsEdit

  • Dec 3: Possible Forum Issue

We're tracking down a possible forum issue -- it looks like there are far fewer people representing for Dogs in our Dogs vs. Cats forum battle. We think this must be a problem in forums, because there is no way that Dogs could be so much less popular than Cats.

  • Dec 8: This Forum is Closing Soon

With the Cats vs Dogs election wrapping up, this forum will be closing soon. We will be re-purposing the Cats vs Dogs Battle Forum into the PETS forum, where all pets discussion will be welcome. We're going to move some of the bigger threads over as well. Wrap up your threads and head over whenever you're ready!

TriviaEdit

  • The announcement by Developer Panagrammic to the amount of Gaians choosing cats over dogs, was done in a joking manner.
  • Despite the event being all in fun and simplicity, some Gaians disliked that the resulting poll was clearly rigged in favor of the Dogs to win, as previously the poll showed Cats were in the lead.
  • A Geoduck is a species of very large saltwater clam.
  • Despite the achievements badge being a prize, of sorts, some Gaians still wanted an item in relation to the event.
  • When trying to access the opposing forum, the following messages would appear.
° We cannot process your request right now. Please try again later.(You haven't chosen a side yet. Take me to the chooser page to pick a side!)
