Cats can actually be just as much a handful as dogs, but in different ways. My cat, Spore, will keep you up ALL night from tearing through the house, playing, chasing mice, etc. He also has lower urinary track disease, a VERY common illness for male cats, and requires a specific, somewhat expensive diet. From time to time, he'll "leak" when walking around or sleeping, and has to go to the vet to be flushed out. How many people would be responsible enough to take THAT on? :/
