I think ease is in the eye of the beholder. Some people think Guinea Pigs are easy pets because you don't have to walk them. I'd much rather go for walks and have pets that relieve themselves in my yard and don't leave me with a cage to clean up. To me dogs are easier since I enjoy walks and training comes naturally.

For future reference, it's way easier to put one in a garbage can, pop on the lid and just bring him in that way. One of my friends had to do that with their cat (the amazing door snagger). He was astonished when the vet didn't even bat an eyelash. Apparently that's how most of his clients were transported.

Pillowcases are also great for cats!

For those reluctant to go back into their carriers, I'd stand it on end then drop them in butt first.

I ended up having to just train our cat to enjoy pet carriers. She can't be loose in the house due to inappropriate bathroom habits, so in the evenings I bring her in and she spends the night sleeping in a crate so the raccoons don't hurt her. She hated it the first few days but realized she really likes being indoors at night.

I own 4 cats and 4 dogs.

And any day of the week, my 4 cats are easier to care for and maintain than ONE dog, lol.

I hate cats. Period. End of story. I'd rather lose a kidney than have a cat in my house.

Tell that to my cats. They are way more needy than my dogs. I have 3 dogs and 3 cats btw but I would say my cats are more needy. I guess it depends on the situation but everytime I get up they are right there.

And I am one of those people who sets time for my cats to get attention too. *gasp*
