    Your first sentence should grab the readers' attention. Next, introduce your subject with brief summaries of the likenesses and difference. The last sentence should be your thesis statement.

    When you write a compare and contrast essay, you are writing about the likenesses and differences. Suppose you were writing a compare and contrast essay on cats and dogs as pets. You might say that dogs are affectionate, but cats are independent. They both make good pets, however.

    Your thesis statement might be something like: Dogs are better pets than cats.
