It Will Cost You Around $13,000 to Own a Dog or a Cat

All those chew toys your pets love and those Halloween costumes your pets HATE BEYOND BELIEF really add up.

A new study found it costs about $111 per month to own a dog or cat. That’s because of everything from food and toys to vet bills and medicine. And since pets live an average of 10 years, that’s $13,320 total.

So keep that in mind going in . . . you could get your eighth cat or save for a Kia.

The survey also found that unfortunately 26% of people use the term “fur baby” when they’re talking about their pet. And 23% will call their pet their “son” or “daughter.”
