    Just curious,I have three females. They each are so different. The oldest takes on the role of mama cat, the next one is always trying to get yhrlyons share of food and love, and the third one, the youngest is basically rejected by the others and she is a total sweet cat but always intimidated, even being the bigger cat.

    Anyway, how socially adaptive are male cats?

    And which sex do you prefer?

    I love cats, but I always get a female. Some males, once snipped are far more affectionate, but not always. I have a friend with 2 males, they sleep together all cuddled up and are best buddies.

    In the past year, we have had four cats of 20+ yo each pass.

    One male and three female.

    I was always a dog person and the cats came with my wife.

    I love that each one had such a unique personality.

    I agree: BOTH!

    Cali, Tabitha and Blossom, our little girls. They don't pee all over the place such as male cats some times do even when they are neutered. Cali(13yrs)likes to isolate from the other two, Tabitha(12 1/2yrs)is Blossom's(7yrs)surrogate mother. Blossom barges in when there's food.

    I've found during my 50+ years of cat ownership that their behavior and personality are independent of gender. Love 'em both.

    We have three, one boy and two girls all fixed and all from the same litter. The boy is still the alpha cat, and the girls don't get along half of the time.

    Both.

    After having cats all my life, I have no preference. Cats choose you.

    We've probably had 20 cats over the past 30 years, male and female. We have 4 now, two male and two female. They are all great, regardless of sex.

    cat urine contains a pheromone that is known to cause depression, especially in women.

    I've only ever bonded with male cats. I just find them more honest. Females are sneaky and bitchy. Just like humans.

    Got two female cats, rescues from the same litter, a year old. One is a food hog but lets you hold it all day long but doesn't initiate, and the other snuggle initiates but only on her terms- you reach over to pick her up she will walk away. Both very different but both great cats!

    We have had much better luck with male cats.

    Background: we currently have a double-digit number of kittehs. We foster for the SPCA.

    No comparison, male cats hands down. They are much more interactive, more affectionate and have much more personality.

    For reference, I have had many cats of either sex, currently have four (two males, two females).
