A delightful video has left the internet chuckling, featuring a cat owner’s biggest expense demanding attention at the most inopportune moment. The clip, shared on TikTok by the user ellie_thetabby, showcases a ginger cat sauntering into her owner’s room and hopping onto his bed, insistent on playing fetch with a stick.

The accompanying caption humorously reads, “When you’re stressed about bills and your biggest one casually comes over with their favorite bell on a stick. She likes to play fetch with the stick, it’s interesting.”

The owner revealed that Ellie is only four months old and was adopted from a shelter just a month ago. He described her as having “the sweetest personality, super affectionate, glued to my hip and loves belly rubs. I have no other pets.”

Indeed, pet ownership comes with its own set of costs. It is reported that Americans spent over $136.8 billion on their pets in 2022, with cat owners spending approximately $310 annually on food, $253 on veterinary care, and around $50 on toys for their furry companions.


On a more serious note, it is reported that each year, an average of 17,260 pets enter U.S. shelters daily. The number of dogs and cats taken in by pet shelters hit 46,807 during January 2023, a rise of 1,744 compared to January 2022, according to a recent “Shelter Watch Report.”

Sadly, around 920,000 surrendered animals are euthanized annually. To combat this, shelters are working diligently to reduce euthanasia rates through adoption campaigns, spaying and neutering programs, and behavior rehabilitation.
