Yeah, I felt the same way when I first got Lily. I've been putting money away since I got her last August in a vet fund for her, in case she needs surgery or something. I took her for a vet check up last month, and spent nearly $60. It was $45 for just the check up (or close to that, maybe $43), and then I bought some Revolution because we thought she might have mites (she had a couple of bald spots), so the Revolution cost somewhere between $10 and $15 for a little tiny tube. It was worth it though, the mites must be gone because she's regrowing quills in her two bald spots, and she doesn't itch anymore!
