Topic - Cat ownership costs - what are they / do people insure or not?

ksjs - on 02 Nov 2012
Currently considering taking on a cat that needs re-homing. She is 5 years old, chipped and neutered. Cost is unfortunately a consideration as my financial state isn't the most robust.

I think the thing I am most aware of is vet bills. She will need annual innoculations and obviously things might go wrong health-wise. Is people's view that insurance is generally wortwhile or a waste of money (I had heard there were lots of exclusions in policies)?

Aside from vets, the only other costs I can think of are:

Food
Kennels

and then one-offs like:

Collar
Bowl
Bed
Changing owner details on the microchip
Fitting a catflap

Any others that it's worth taking into account?

Thanks!
