Potential pet owners who think the cost of pet ownership is as simple as a bag of dry food and water and what it might end up being (quality food, routine and emergency Vet care) versus finding these sweet babies homes.

I have not added up my expenses for two iterations of cat combos (I currently have three, five over last 15 yesrs), but I know medical expenses alone have been probably $10,000–including a 3 day trip to an out of town Vet school. One of my cats is currently on Atopica —that costs $110 a month (for the rest of his life). And someone is worried about the cost of cat food?
