    No pet would survive in an ecosystem with intact mesopredator ecology. A cat is less likely to be overbred for docility to the point of being unable to feed itself if the wilderness is disrupted. Both can become invasive if your “wilderness” lacks mesopredators due to human intervention or because it’s an island with only uncompetitive base stock of natural animal colonists.
    The American/anglo dog experience is largely one of overbred varieties and of little feral base stock due to successful eradication campaigns that were mounted to reduce livestock loss.

    In the rest of the world, feral dogs will fill the mesopredator niche in the wilderness if the native dholes, jackals, etc are displaced, but feral cats are generally dependent on human habitation if there are canid mesopredators in the environment.

      American here (real american meaning northern states)

      Huskies are like the third most popular large breed here and pitbulls are the second. We are absolutely familiar with dogs that still have survival skills and eat livestock. The idea that every dog is a drooling slave that cant feed itself is pretty dated because fences and leash laws made dogs need to cuck out to farmhomosexuals a thing of the past. Also, farmhomosexuals might go away soon because the only way to control livestock related pollution is to contain them in a factory farm, and the only way to make them happy like that is to genetically engineer them to lack what little consciousness they have, so in the future non-hunting dogs might go extinct only leaving dogs that will guard, hunt, and fight (at least for pest control duties) and those weirdo “gun dogs” that “hunt” but not really.

        Meanwhile, Labs, German Shepherds, Goldens, Poodles, Rottweilers, German Shorthair Pointers, Aussies, Boxers, and Great Danes are all large breed dogs more popular than the Husky in real life, and there’s half a dozen breeds of small dogs above them in the rankings as well.

        Pitbulls and Sled dogs are not overrepresented in dog shelter populations because they are popular. They are overrepresented because they are problem causers.

          You’re looking at AKC statistics apparently, when most dogs aren’t AKC registered. Nor are most dogs even eligible for AKC registry because registered parentage and show standard conformation are absent. Basing your views off the AKC’s registry is as foolish as using pitbullinfo’s methodology and counting every shelter adoption or intake as a new dog. If not more. According to the AKC, 4/7 pitbull type breeds do not exist and are just out of standard mixes. That includes the primary pitbull breed, the american pit bull terrier.

          Here’s dog populations by puppy sales.

            the fact that the akc lists frenchies as the #2 breed is enough to know that an organization that recognizes less than half the dog breeds and registers less than half the dogs in the us doesnt provide stats that represent the real world rather than the purebred snob world. the akc registers ~1 mil dogs per year in a country with ~76 mil dogs at any given time with lifespans from 10 to 15 years. puppy mills alone are estimated to produce 2 million dogs per year and are rarely if ever AKC because the AKC doesn’t register puppy mill breeders.

    Cats. A dog is really only good in a pack. Without one it's just fricked. It has less agility to pay off for more endurance when chasing long distances in a group.

    Cats are good solitary hunters. And still retain that even when domestic. So if they're let loose they'd be able to pick off small mammals, bugs, and whatever else it can kill. They aren't reliant on a pack or having a pack structure and are just fine hunting alone.

    ive never actually seen a dog get hurt attacking a cat in the act of predation. they just charge in after stalking the cat for a while and blindside them.

    they only get hurt if they’re moronic and try and fight the cat for dominance. cats absolutely do not last on their own in north america or anywhere with better predators. they’re not fearful enough and evolved for an environment where even if they get heemed humans are keeping the shit genes alive for them. ironic that an animal loathed for its effects on exotic birds in hawaii is so much like them, totally unprepared for medium sized mammalian carnivores.

        They’re not doing anything. We’re doing something wrong.

        In the third world, where people let dogs roam and breed like cats, they are also causing extinctions and behaving like an invasive species. They mogged australia so hard they became the sole apex predator there. Because humans killed or sufficiently weakened everything else and lit the environment on fire. So there’s nothing else left to be at the apex.

        When you continuously pump massive numbers of an animal into the ecosystem, AND feed them so they dont starve to death, shit happens.

        Please explain how something (dogs and cats) that is food for coyotes that are food for wolves that are food for pumas and bears is at the apex or anything.

    Cat, hands down. No question. Housecats are actually the most prolific predators on Earth. Most predators only hunt one or two species, cats hunt anything smaller than themselves. Birds, bugs, rodents, anything smaller than them is prey. They're better at hunting, they're better at hiding, they can climb trees. I have two cats and a dog, if my home was broken into while I was out my cats would go outside and hide in the area. My dog would almost immediately be caught by animal control. The cats, they'd have to leave traps for. My dog would likely walk right up to them.

    Little dogs are much easier prey in general. Dogs in general are too tame for that setting. A cat could survive very well in a forest provided there was sufficient prey, but there's actually the possibility if there were no predators for the cat itself the cat could easily decimate the population of every prey animal present.

    Dogs are pack animals, just like us they aren't designed to operate solo. So, on its own a cat wins since it's more adaptable. If the dog can find a battle buddy it'll outlast the cat thanks to the power of friendship and being able to hunt as a unit.

    The pom and cat would both die pretty much immediately, Coyotes would eat them. Game over.

    I have a normal husky, and he catches and eats cats if left alone outside to his own devices. Cats are extremely stupid and unknowingly bank on dogs either being retriever and herding breeds with no fighting or real hunting instincts (because letting your dog catch whatever they see is "illegal poaching" - just because a dog is called a hunting breed does not mean it was bred to do any real hunting), or being socialized with (read: traumatized as pups by) housecats and fearing them. Housecats instincts are extremely dull and the dumbest coyote in the woods would pick them like low hanging fruit.

    Do you see invasive cat populations in north america? No. Once robbed of crazy cat ladies and garbage piles, and the continuous resupply of lost pets ceases, leaves, or is too far away, the population is immediately annihilated.

    There is a reason the only places cats and dogs are really "invasive" are islands with no mammalian predators. Domesticated animals are permanently nerfed.

            Dude, literally every predator on earth that is large enough to eats cats. Especially domestic ones, because they're painfully stupid. Same for domestic dogs. Wild canids will eat domestic dogs but not their own natural species, because domestic dogs look and smell too different, and are painfully stupid compared to their wild cousins.

            Wild cats are a bit smarter, but subadults are still typical prey for basically everything.

            Dogs are notorious for at least chasing cats (incomplete prey drive), and the more "natural" ones kill them, unless they're raised with them. It's unsurprisingly common. They're just pointy rabbits in a dogs mind. It should be common knowledge - huskies kill cats, malamutes kill cats, akitas kill cats, greenland dogs kill cats, karelian dogs kill cats, jindo dogs kill cats, borzoi kill cats, any large terrier kills cats, most pointers kill cats, etc.

            The most common event that occurs when a dog is raised around cats is the adult cats scratch it, so it's easily bullied by cats in adulthood.

                not only are coyotes traditionally associated with intelligence, they are more intelligent than domestic dogs, which are themselves many times more intelligent than domestic cats.
                >eating cats is not smart
                all wild animals carry significant amounts of parasites, either accumulated from prey, or from grazing on feces/urine contaminated vegetation and all the slugs and bugs within and drinking contaminated water (which is pretty much all water found in nature). this is why carnivores such as humans and canids have powerful stomach acid, fast digestion, and a food acquisition method where there is a lot of wiggle room between the least it takes to thrive and eating all day so they can better cope with parasitic loads. you could even say cats aren't smart for eating rodents then. rodents can often count parasites as a significant percentage of their body weight, and they scavenge high value food all night (including half eaten rodents left by cats) to compensate.

                even wild cats, which are more wily, intelligent, and larger than domestic cats, are hunted as sub-adults by every larger predator in their natural habitat. as the domestic cat is disordered and stuck in a moronic sub adult phase with more kitten like behavior and less wariness, they are naturally prey to basically everything. furthermore, domestic cats are less likely to have a parasitic load as large as a wild animal because they most likely spent a decent amount of their time either eating kibble or scavenging garbage.

                it is natural and normal, if not ideal behavior, for an animal to eat housecats. even domesticated dogs will eat housecats. they are easy prey.

                I have had many huskies and they learn easily but never listen without food present. They are smart enough to kill prey animals. What kind of idiot dog can’t grab some angry vermin by the spine and shake? Meat is meat.

                If they're stupid enough to eat cats, they'll eat smaller dogs too. Cats are extremely agile and evasive, many dogs go after cats just to end up on wild goose chases to nowhere

        Accurate considering coyotes cause local housecat extinctions. Cats are dysfunctional and only look cool compared to shit like golden retrievers.

        >he’s right. catschizos need a good tearing down anyways.
        Cats are perfectly capable of surviving on their own in the wild. Anybody who says otherwise attacked by a cat as a child and pisses and siddeds themself at the sight of one.

        No more than dogs that still have prey drive. Regardless neither pet is as intelligent or healthy as a real animal and will get ripped to shreds by every predator in the americas plus any that are still left in eurasia. If a husky or other natural-ish dog would die, so would a cat. The only places on earth cats are genuinely invasive and remain so if humans cut them off are the same places domestic dogs are able to survive on their own.

          This is what you sound like.

          it doesnt matter how good your pet is at killing city vermim and exotic birds that evolved for a predator free environment. most of nature is full of things that are so much stronger, faster, and smarter that it stands the same chances as a pug, and all of them are used to hunting its closest wild equivalent, moronic kittens. have you seen the video of coyotes snatching cats from a small colony without the other cats noticing?

          >most of nature is full of things that are so much stronger, faster, and smarter that it
          I could say the same thing for squirrels, every single bug, small birds, possums, rabbits etc. Oh nevermind i forgot those are all extinct because of coyotes my bad.
          >it stands the same chances as a pug,
          Lmao a pug will die in it's own house if you forget to feed it. Now i know you're an actual schizo.

          House cats aren't even close to being extinct. What do you have against golden retrievers? They're high IQ, easily trainable and used as search and rescue/as service dogs

            Golden retrievers lack almost all of their predatory instincts despite being a carnivore. They are equipment, not animals. They fail basic intelligence tests that wolves have a 100% pass rate on. Their “training IQ” is just a disordered reward reinforcement system. At least the dogs that eat cats are a little closer to acting like the real animal they descend from.

            I’m a catgay, but a real catgay. I see breeding domestic housecats as a form of animal cruelty. The real cat stops being prey for anything in adulthood. Unlike housecats, which can even be eaten by huskies, and were purposefully created for no good reason at all.

    >lapdog breed
    This is kind of vague. Some lapdog breeds, like Miniature Pinschers are known for their hunting abilities. Even Yorkshire Terriers and other smaller dog breeds are known for being good at hunting mice. Chihuahuas are a very old breed with Aztec roots. There are a ton of homeless Chihuahuas in California, they find a way to survive somehow. I don't know much about Pomeranians, but they actually are smart and can be trained easily if you can believe it, I'd imagine some would take to hunting small animals fairly easily.

      They survive because people feed them, they aren't viewed as a threat and many people especially women think they're cute. The dog with the worst chances of street survival is unironically a pitbull, they're seen as a massive threat and will be shot and killed or captured and euthanized when spotted

        This is also why so many homeless cats survive, not being seen as a threat is so underestimated

      Poms are really smart and easy to train. I take mine hunting and fishing sometimes. She will fetch doves, flush rabbits, and chase squirrels. She's really good at spotting snakes and gators and knows better than to go after them. When the chickens get out, she'll catch them by the tail and hold them until I grab them.

    Depends on the wilderness but if it's not some freezing climate then most likely the cat.
    Cats can live off of birds and rodents for years, can climb trees, jump high as frick(as well as from great heights) and are extremely agile.
    This particular dog can't do shit other than be loud and obnoxious. It can't hunt birds or squirrels or rats, it can't climb a tree when chased by a stronger predator and it can't jump 15 meters from the tree down to the ground and continue running as if nothing happened.
    Other dogs can survive just fine but these small designer breeds have absolutely redeeming qualities for survival.

      A lot of small dog breeds make good mousers.
      >can climb trees
      A lot of cats also kill themselves this way. Most know how to get up a tree, but not many know how to get down. Hence the whole phenomenon of saving Fluffy from a tree branch. I had a cat who once climbed up a large tree and we had to pay someone to get him down. He was crying for hours before help came.
      >are extremely agile
      Small dogs also can be agile, hence why dog shows featuring them exist. Granted, maybe not as agile as a cat, I'll give you that.

        That cat would have figured out how to get down eventually when push came to shove. The "cat stuck up a tree" phenomenon is mostly due to moronic humans making moronic assumptions. Most of time the cat isn't coming down because there are a bunch of strangers yelling at it at the bottom. There's is no way evolution gave a creature the ability to climb but not the ability to come down.

          Evolution isn't God, that whole concept is literally a israeli attempt to undermine a religion that they dislike. Natural selection involves trial and error. The thing that pisses me off is that we deliberately created all these moronic deformed dogs.

      Depends on the cat, I got a 15 lb fuffy boy that loves the snow. When I travel, I leave them outside so they don't stink up the house. It forced them to learn how to hunt and defend themselves.

    Which wilderness, buddy? Frosty boreal woods would put both pom and a cat down in a few days. They both would freeze to death. Same woods in the summer would let them survive for longer time, and a cat has more chances, of course, since it can climb trees to feast on birds' eggs and can also catch different small rodents. A pom would just starve for a couple of weeks and then would lie down to ride the rainbow. In jungles they both would end up annihilated by local carnivores. In sandy desert they both would die in a few days. In polar desert they both would freeze in a day.

    Cat has better chances of survival overall. Though a dog of normal breed would have equal chances of survival. I have seen lots of hunting dogs that were abandoned by their owners - guess what, they starve and suffer, unable to catch anything in the wild by themselves.

      Have cats really lost the instinct to figure out how to find rodents under the sand? This is the habitat they originate from. They would at least last longer due to their ability to not need as much water.

    Own two cats and pom. The cats are most likely to survive. My reasoning is that coyotes are the most likely predators. The cats can climb trees to avoid an attack and can fight surprisingly well. My big cat regularly attacks neigborhood dogs and sends them running. Even fought off a grey fox that attacked it on my front porch one night. The pom's only defenses are its fur and willingness to immeditately submit to larger dogs.
