I'm infected..

..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

Why didn't anyone warn me???

Remember each cat costs about $1,000 annually to keep.

as you plan for your new house, you may want to try this;

Re: I'm infected..

Wow, that's an awesome enclosure! I might look into something like that.

Yes, I know they are expensive, so I guess my dream of a handful will diminish into 1 or 2 more.

I was at the local rescue center the other day just to take a look...bad idea! Those poor little things need mummys and I wanted to take all of them home

Re: I'm infected..

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'...
