How much should I expect to pay at a petland store for a kitten?

First of all, I am not worried about the price, just didn’t want to be shocked.

Secondly, I was only going to resort to petland as a last option. I planned on visiting the three surrounding county shelters first.

  1. Go adopt from a shelter, those kittens need love and they come with shots and are already spayed/neutered.

    EDIT: If you are worried about the cost then don’t bother getting one! Animals need regular and emergency vet care which can get costly. Not to mention quality food and all the supplies that are needed for a pet.

  2. Unless “Petland” allows shelters to have their cats at the store do NOT buy a kitten from them. Pet stores get their kittens from what’s known as “mills” where animals are kept in very horrible conditions and litters churned out repeatedly – like they’re a “mill” churning out a product.

    They’re also not tested for diseases and so you can end with a kitten that dies within the first few months you have it. They also don’t sell altered animals – so you have to cover that cost. If you want to read about what these “mills” are like read this article from wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puppy_farming

    If you adopt from a shelter you’ll pay an adoption fee of about $100 and you’ll get a kitten or cat that’s already spayed or neutered, up to date on shots, deflead, dewormed, tested for disease and microchipped.

    Don’t have $100? Well then you sure won’t have the $300-$400 to get all of these done for a pet store kitten!

  3. Well, not to be evasive but that would be a question best asked of someone at Petland. Puppies and kittens are generally expensive no matter where you go, especially if they’re purebred. But another one your answers is right. The best thing to do is to adopt your baby either from a shelter or from someone who has one that needs a good home. She’s also right about it being expensive. Think long and hard before you do anything.

  4. Don’t go to any pet store that sells pets unless it is one with an adoption center with agencies you know. These cats are warehoused and not taken care of properly. Get one from the shelter and take it to the vet immediately. The kittens only survive if someone adopts them. The price usually includes the vaccinations, and spay/ neuter costs. Have fun with the new member of your family. Cost very, aprrox $50.00 and up.

  5. kittens in pet stores usually come from back yard breeders and if you knew what these people did you would NOT buy a kitten from a pet store. There are many animal rescue groups out there which are not-profit and do their work purely for the love of animals. Rescue animals come with all their vet work done for a small adoption fee. You can google ‘animal rescue groups’ … most have profiles on them with photos too.

  6. Well expect to pay 25 to 150 for a kitten depending on the breed and how old it is, and sometimes its best just to resort to good ole give away cats. Just depending if your want a Himalayan or american short hair you could check vets. Also if they come with papers and are an expensive breed be prepared to spend more the 150. good luck hope this helps

  7. My ex boyfriends parents had a Bengal cat – it was GORGEOUS. It had been breed as a show cat but wasn’t 100% perfect so the woman who owned the cat gave it away! Apparently they can cost around £5,000 if pure pedigree and up to show standards. Hope you’ve been saving your pennies or get a bargain!

  8. I agree with Freya. All of my cats, all of them were kinda strays. My oldest one, midnite I did adopt from the animal shelter. The next two, my son found in a house he was remodeling. They were so small and young, we had to bottle feed them. The next one my husband found in the middle of a highway here in town. Couldn’t figure out why she wasn’t afraid of the cars, until we found out she was deaf. The next one, we were on a wrecker call in a really bad drug neighborhood, and I saw her playing in the ditch, got out of the truck and asked the guys who were being arrested who she belonged to, They said you if you want her. So there’s my story. PLEASE adopt from a shelter though. They have been loved and taken care of and also because I am a BIG supporter of the ASPCA.

  9. Check the local newspaper, shelter, adoptapet.com, or petfinder.com. There are so many animals that need homes, especially kittens. Adoption is usually free, or may require a small donation.

  10. why even pay for a cat or pet. Look in your local newspaper and you will find that people give pets away for free all the time. Young ones, old ones, cats or dogs, even birds and horses. So just look around first before spending your money. Good luck.
