Here is the most complete, informative, humorous, kind, and well-written article I’ve seen about the real cost of a cat. Written for the Fear Free Happy Homes website, Ramona D. Marek, MS Ed gives you everything you need to know about the financial side of taking the best care of your furry feline friend.

Ramona D. Marek, MS Ed, is an award-winning writer and 2017 recipient of the prestigious Fear Free Pets Award. She writes about pet care, health and behavior, and cats in the arts. She’s also the author of “Cats for the GENIUS.” Her feline muses are Tsarevich Ivan, a joie de vivre silver tabby Siberian, and Natasha Fatale, a full-time diva dressed as an “anything but plain” brown tabby.

    I’d hate to think what we spent over the last two years in Vet/Specialty/Emergency/Hospital expenses but I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.
