A dog/cat will have a lower initial cost (adoption) but the monthly costs are much higher. Where as, I/we paid $400 now for a 65gallon glass tank plus all the neccessary components to make it run, the monthly costs would come down to ~$5/month for basic food + veggies that we may not eat. A Dog would need vet bills plus those massive bags of food (~$10+/bag/biweekly). So yea, in the end, I/we actually are paying less.
This is True!
I have 4 kitties and they are not too bad unless they get sick - but my vet has known me since I was like 6 so he does stuff at cost for me.
Also 3 of 4 had all their shots and had been fixed/declawed before we got them.
