    The pregnancy isn't expensive, they eat a little bit more, that's all. they eat a lot more when they are feeding kittens and then the kittens need solid food which they start on at 4-5 weeks usually but they don't eat much at that stage. Right now my litter of five eight week olds are getting through more than two but less than three 200g tins of kitten food a day between them (they might be eating a few dry kibbles as well but certainly very little of that)

    For vaccinations it depends a lot on where you are and what vaccinations you have. I have Pentofel which covers everything including FeLV and Chlamydia, and that works out at about £55 per kitten for the course.

    It depends how long you keep the kittens, they start to get more expensive as they get to around 7-8 weeks. Our injections work out around £58 but that's with a microchip.
