..with the kitty bug I want more of them now that I have one! I will be buying a house next year hopefully and all I'm thinking about is getting one with an enclosed garden so I can get a 'handful' of cats to live with me.
I also go down town to buy food and end up bringing treats and toys home for Monty and having to starve because I couldn't carry any food
The posters above make a great point: don't get a cat unless you're financially able to afford it. Getting a cat and not being able to care for it properly because of tight finances wouldn't be responsible either to yourself or to the cat. And a lot of people are in tight finances these days.
Arianwen eats better, and has a much better health maintenance plan than I do.
Meh, what can ya do?
But, Tim's right. Only get as many kitties as you can afford. And, Xanti, if you're really starving yourself, you won't have the energy to take care of the kitties well and notice early signs of problems. Just sayin'...
