How much does a kitten cost? 

Before getting a kitten you should know what kind of expanses to expect. This includes the purchase, basic equipment, the most important treatments at the vet (vacs and deworming) and regular monthly costs such as food.

How much does a kitten costs? Well, that depends a lot on what type you want. In most cases you can get one for free if someone in you community and someone in your family´s or friend´s community has a female who has littered kittens without the owners having had any breeding ambitions. Otherwise, if the breed plays a role in your choice, you can expect anything between $50 to over $1,000

The cost of the basic equipment for a kitten can vary greatly depending on the quality and type of items purchased. A basic equipment bundle including a bowl, bed, a few toys, a cat box for transportation, and a scratch tree can cost anywhere from $100 to $300. 

The cost of deworming and vaccinating a kitten will vary depending on the veterinarian and the type of vaccines and deworming medication used. On average, the cost of a basic deworming and vaccination package for a kitten can range from $50 to $100

The maintenance costs for a kitten per month will mainly depend on the type of food you choose to feed them, how much they eat, and the size of your kitten. Generally, you can expect to spend between $30 to $60 a month on food for a single kitten. 

Do not forget to set aside some savings in case your kitten gets sick or injured and needs to go see a vet. The costs for the treatment can vary extensively, so it is not possible to calculate a certain amount in advanced. They can be a few hundered dollars or even up to a few thousand dollars in severe cases, so be prepared.
