Because they are such big eaters and because they have so many other needs, this breed is costly. You have no idea just how much you will end up spending on this cat before you get one, and that’s going to change quickly once you do have one because of its high-maintenance ways. If you don’t have one yet, it’s a good idea to make sure you have a few thousand additional dollars to spend each year on the cat. You’re going to need it.
