At any animal shelter you have to have it spayed or neutered. So probably around 50 dollars.
There are many cost factors to keep in mind anytime someone purchases ANY pet. There is the initial cost, shots, worming, spay/neuter, food, bowls, toys, crate, and bedding. Then you have to save money to put away for yearly check ups, ongoing shots, and aging needs. Ideally no one would ever purchase an animal without having around $1000 to purchase needed items, bills, then the rest put into savings. You never know when their will be an emergency.
Mark my answer down because you disagree but a good pet owner knows the cost of actually taking care of a pet!
I think this is a good answer with a very logical approach. Too many people pick up a pet and then neglect all of the important aspects of pet care that you have mentioned. Voted up!
Shelters frequently are overrun with cats and often will have half-price sales on them or even give them away for a short period of time. You may also find them being given away in the local paper. Remember that the real expense with any pet actually comes in the food, vaccinations and ongoing veterinary care, including some unexpected health issues.
In Texas, it cost about 75 to adopt a kitten. However, I went to the shady section of Houston and found two kittens to adopt instead. They were free and entirely adorable. Their mother abandoned all four of them but the other two found homes.

Do you miss your old pet(s) so much that you refuse to adopt new ones?My parents gave away my dog when I was 17. Ever since then I just don't want another pet anymore.
