Scratching posts, catnip, mice, sweaters, treats, balls, collars, food and litter; how much money do you spend on your cat? Did you know that the average cat owner spends anywhere from $700 to $900 dollars per year on their cat? According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), it is estimated that Americans will spend a whooping $1,271 on their cat this year alone! These numbers could go up or down depending upon how many cats you have and how much you “spoil” them.
Wouldn’t you want to be one of those people spending less money on their cat with out feeling like you are cheating your cat out of the “cat life” lifestyle? You know the lifestyle I’m referring: places to sleep, good entertainment, plenty to eat and a fresh litter box. This, in a nut shell, is the “cat life”. Cats don’t care how much money you spend on them. Just as long as you take care of their most basic needs.
Frugal Feline was created to save you, the cat owner (or parent), some serious dough when it comes to caring for your cat. Every time you pick up a magazine or turn on the TV you are inundated with ways to save money. Save money by: switching, changing, disconnecting, etc. It use to be cheaper to take care of your cat 20 years ago. But the times are changing. Besides the “not so good economy” we are faced with a change in dynamics in how we see our animal friends. They are not considered farm animals, domestic critters or even pets. No, they are none of these. They are our family. Would you like to save money on your cat?
