Ok so if we are honest our love of pets costs, food, vet bills and other bits.
After my last cat died at age 18 I said no more pets….A year later stray cat turns up (I call him bad penny/need a to spend a penny). He came in and within ten minutes I knew he was riddled with fleas and liked to wee in the house.
Not wanting to pay the vet a huge amount for flee treatment I got on the net. I can highly recommend this site for flee and worming http://www.petmeds.co.uk. About a third off what you would pay your vet. I am not paid by this site and am recommending them only on my own use of them.
