    I know of a 1 year old cat that needs a new home but I would need to know more about you before passing on your details to the owner. Why are you wanting a cat? What type/sex cat are you looking for? Have you owned a cat before? etc. Meant to say the cat is near me in Huddersfield.

    No such thing as a cheap pet, there is flea treatment, worming, good quality food, neutering, microchipping, dentals, check ups...etc etc, and that's without your pet getting ill or having an accident. I'd be considering what I'd do with hefty vets bills if I couldn't afford to pay for the cat in the first place. :confused:

    What Lisa says is absolutely right. You need to look at the monthly 'running' costs of keeping a pet. You need to make sure they are vaccinated each year and treated regularly for worms and fleas. That costs. Then there's the issue of pet insurance - you have to assume that at some point your cat is going to need unforeseen medical attention - for an accident, say, or illness. Vet bills can be huge. Pet insurance can save you from vet bills, but is another monthly outlay.

    Cats are brilliant pets, but you have to be prepared for the expense of them. You can't just assume you'll buy your pet and that's where the expense ends. Pet-keeping is great fun but it's a great responsibility - you're assuming care for another life, and that is not to be taken lightly.

    I think Lisa was trying to point out that you put cheep in your original post, cats, or any pet for that matter are not cheap to own properly, your cat will need flea and worming treatment, neutering when its old enough, insurance (unless you have enough money to cover any vet bills which can run into thousands) not to mention the everyday costs such as feeding. I cant see why you were confused by her post though:confused:.

    Anyone think this is one of those creatures who lives under a bridge? Wanting a cat for a birthday present?!

    *says Lisa whose two adopted cats joined her on her birthday - through co-incidence, not planning*

    It sounds as if you haven't thought this through.......an animal is for life so you need to consider the cost of lifetime care.

    This was why I started that thread on the cost of cats... my 'free' cats were £96+ by time I paid for jabs, neutering, *initial* worming and flea treatments...

    Cost of Cats

    From look of it several other people have paid out a lot more, apparently I have cheap vets!

    So JessyCat, as much as you want a new kitten for your birthday can you afford all the *initial* costs of a cat - the first 6 months or so - plus food/unexpected vet bills/other running costs?

    Agreed, my 'free' kittens were hopping with fleas, riddled with worms & crawling with earmites so the 1st week cost over £100, then another £100 for spaying at 6 months

    ETA: not that the money matters, at the end of the day you just pay it because they are your beloved pets, but it matters if you can't pay for these things & the animals end up suffering
