save a life by fostering!
I understand why you would like to have a kitten, but if you are a Universty Student on a low income budget it will be a big expense at once. Why don't you foster a cat or kitten, or a mother cat and kittens? This way, you are saving a life, and the rescue group or humane Society where you are fostering your animal will pay for the expense of the food, and the sterilization. Remeber though, when that rescue group finds that cat a home, you willl have it up. Which is sad, but remember if it wasn't for YOU, that animal may have been put to sleep.
