When cats and dogs are around each other they react differently; cats hiss, claw, and whine while dogs are curious of cats. Talking is different also, because cats “meow” and dogs “bark”. For amusement cats love to climb and jump however, unlike cats dogs run wildly. Dogs love humans but, cats are outrageously adorable when they purr, and kisses with a nose are a great way to say “hi”. Dogs sniff your butt, wag their tail, and lick for kissing. Meal time means cats demand fish while dogs want their fish bones. Truly cats and dogs are really different mammals.
23: Wings vs. Pizza By Lanessa Although they come from the same restaurant, wings and pizza are different in many ways. First of all, wings are really spicy when you order them hot. Pizza is not spicy no matter what. When you order wings it comes in a small box, but pizza comes in a big box. Even though pizza has crust, wings have bones which means that there is less food to eat. Pizza comes from dough and wings come from little chickens. Last but not the least, when they get the wings they put the little chickens in the freezer then when they’re ready they get the chickens out and get them ready to eat, but pizza is made by hand and right away put in the oven. It doesn’t matter how they're different, it just matters how people enjoy them.
