The Question Club
I just moved to a new city about a month ago and had enough money saved up for rent, food, and small odds and ends here and there. I found a cat at PetCo that costs 90 dollars to adopt. She's 5, super cute, has all her shots, is fixed, and I believe she gets a free health check up.
With the cost of a bed, food dish, food, litter box, and litter, I will probably walk out of PetCo spending 150 or so dollars.
I didn't adopt her a month ago when I saw her because I had no job and had to pay rent. I have a job now and I just started this week. Should I get her?
I told myself I would when I got a job but it only pays 8 dollars an hour so I still worry there may come a day when I have no money to buy her food. But, if I watch my money carefully, I should never be in that situation.
Should I save a poor kitty who is locked in a cage, or spend that 150 on things like groceries?
I could look on craigslist and get a kitten for free or for 25 dollars, but they are never fixed and never have their shots.
