My Chihuahua hates puppies, loves kittens. We found a tiny little kitten with a broken leg a couple months ago, and she acted as a surrogate, snuggling and protecting him from the other cats. It was adorable. Now that he's older, she plays with him constantly! The Humane Society and SPCA generally have low-cost vaccination and spay/neuter programs, depending on your area and income. Generally, you only have to pay $10-$20 and they take care of the surgery and necessary vaccinations. I got my cat spayed a few months ago, and it only came up to about $80, including optional vaccines (We didn't qualify for low-cost spay/neuter). I live in WV, though, and our costs are usually lower compared to national average.
