Why do purebred cats cost more than a Heinz 57 rescue ?
I hope I can give you a little insight on this. Really if you give it some thought purebred cats run about the same as purebred dogs. Most people looking for a cat don’t think about the cost involved in raising cats or a litter of puppies.
I bet you didn’t know hobby breeders are required to do more things than the rescue groups in order to sell a pet. Some states require hobby breeders to supply a vet issued health certificate with each pet sold. Health certificate prices vary from vet to vet. The certificates expire too! They are costly too. We breeder have to pay for an additional wellness for the certificate, a fecal exam, a de-worming, vaccines that must be administered by the vet, a felv blood test before a vet will write the health certificate. If for some reason the pet parent changes their mind that breeder is at a loss for that money spent, and needs to spend it again for the next health certificate.
The Bengal & Savannah cats cost can be higher than other cat breeds. They being a cross between the wild cat and domestic cat can be a bit more challenging and costly to achieve litters. Not to mention some litters are smaller. Some only have one or two kittens. Rescue groups and shelters do not have this expense.
