Red face kitten

Hi,
I'm an university student lookin for a kitten. I don't mean to sound cheap, but it would be best/easiest for me to get find a low priced kitten. Does anybody know where there is a young (2-6 months) male who would like to be nutured by a loving girl :love:?
Thanks a lot!

ps. as i cannot drive, it would be nice if it were from a place accessiblle to montreal public transportation!

If you can't afford to pay for the cat, are you able to pay the vet bills?

We just got a call from a university student is who is moving back to the family home. She has two kittens, and of course now they have to go....


Free kitten:

Vet exam: 35$
Deworm and de-flea - 35$
Vaccinations - (I don't know)$$
Spay or neuter - 65$ - 100
Carry case - 25$
Food - 10$ a week (depending on type)
Litter - 10$ a bag
Toys - 10$ to start

So now you're up to approx 255$ right off the bat.

Unexpected vet visits for illness (rhino, UTI etc) 50$+

This is just the basic expenses for a "free" or cheap kitten.

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.
