    Stud fee :eek: ;) Does that count :D
    Actual item must be their cat tree but I honestly don't remember how much I paid for it now - probably around £40 - £50. I think it was on offer at Zooplus when I bought it.

    I can tell you the most expensive thing I nearly bought...

    Having decided that I wanted to do more shows and that I might like to spend the whole weekend away we did look into campervans

    But at £25,000 that was a luxury we could manage without, shame really as some of them are so well equiped and I would of loved to take the cats away for a few days.

    I saw sense just before I went into debt for my darling pussy cats:biggrin5:

    Two sets of Purrfect fencing (one freestanding, one existing fence kit for down the driveways etc )

    Cat Fence: Purrfect Cat Enclosures and Cat Fences

    Cost ...... approx £1500 :D (it used to cost more than it does now ! Typical :crazy: )

    Worth every penny though to keep my babies safe :) :)

    Likewise - my two will hopefully be jetting off with us within the next 12-18 months - all depends on how long hubby's visa takes - I don't need one and the cats are easy compared to his.

    So far its the cat tree (if you dont count the food that has gone to the RSPCA!!)

    But my plan is for a cat run being built this summer which will definitely outprice the cat tree - I have all the plans drawn up already - poor OH :lol:

    I spent £50 (€60) on the chest and storage boxes to make Ari's toilet. Worth every penny, we both love it :D.

    I bought chloe the most precious gift of all.
    After loosing her best friend Harley to HCM. I found a little friend for her. Here he is!! Archie!
    He cost me £430 + £78 in fuel to him and get him checked over by a vet.
    He's been with us for 3 weeks now and she's playing with him, washing him and play fighting.
    It's took along while to get her to eat properly again but that happened just 2 days ago.

    I just bought one of these eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace , not a huge amount by a lot of peoples standards but its the most Ive ever spent on the cats in one purchase :). I cant wait for it to arrive now, they will go mad when its built up.

    I pay £200. Not that expensive compared to some but I am very pleased with the kittens we have from the boy I use. He is a UK Imperial Grand Champion and absolutely adorable too :001_wub:

    Got sucked in to spending £59 on this 'Cat Mountain' on Zooplus Cat Mountain - Bargain Cat Toys at zooplus

    along with some Bozita and other cat toys. Felt a little splurge was necessary as way of reparation for the recent neutering! Hope he likes it when it comes :confused:

    Would also like a little Silver Spotted Sister for him to play with at some point, that will be the biggest pay out no doubt (if I manage to twist my bf's arm :) )
