I got a free cat from the pound because they were about to put her down. I saved her life.

Have you tried different shelters?

The first place I looked was the humane society. Kittens are listed at $400. A kitten on there that is 10 months old is $375. A one year old car is 3250. The cheapest is $175 for a 12 year old cat.
I think the prices for the kittens are ridiculous. I understand it is to help them stay afloat but it is no wonder people would rather spent $20-100 on Craigslist or Facebook to get a 8 week old kitten. I'm not spending $400 on any kitten. It doesn't even cost that much to get them proper vet care.
So as much as I agree with adoption we will be going another route.
If the Humane Society in my area was charging $400 for a kitten, I might wonder if the kitten had been sick and had racked up a high medical bill.
