I love cats. I have four of them. I got two through the SPCA. The SPCA had a booth at PetsMart. I don't know who came up with the idea for allowing the SPCA to booths at a PetsMart but I can tell you that after adopting two Manx kittens, I bought $1500 worth of pet supplies.
I bought cat furniture, harnesses, leashes, food bowls, water bowls, toys, combs, self-cleaning litter boxes, litter, food, treats, and instructional books.
Years later, when I moved from Texas to Pennsylvania, I traded in my beloved Buick LaSabre for a clunky looking Chevy Astro Van. I loaded the van with cat furniture, their favorite toys and blankets, a private spot for kitty litter, and deep bowls for food and water. I loaded the cats into the van and drove them from Texas to Pennsylvania in just four days.
The cats took up most of the van. I had one duffel bag of clothing and one small ice chest for food in the front passenger seat.
I wouldn't trade my cats in for anything. I've even turned down an overseas job assignment because I didn't want to take my cats overseas and was unwilling to give them up.
