I would always use kerai (嫌い) for a (profound) dislike in something and suki (すき) for something that I like.

Is there a way to use すき and conjugate it into a negative (I was just learning -jyanai in my 2nd Japanese college course).

Could I use "ねこがすきじゃないです" (neko ga suki jyanai desu / I don't like cats) if I hypothetically didn't like cat's (ignore my profile picture ;)) or would it be best to use kerai?

Is one stronger than the other in the negative? Which would you personally use or would it switch from topic to topic and situational based?

Thanks!
