They're Cute, But Expensive

posted by Tracy - 

Overall, Americans spend about $126.19 on their pets each month!

When it comes to specific animals, owners of small pets, like guinea pigs, hamsters and gerbils, spend the most monthly, about $251.82 (Tracy concurs with two spoiled little hamsters at home!)

Dog owners spend way more than cat people, but if you want to save some cash, get a fish. Fish owners, spend only $62.53 a month. 

Here's the list of biggest pet spenders by state.

  1. Delaware - $311.90
  2. Massachusetts - $272.50
  3. Washington - $186.37
  4. Texas - $182.30
  5. Alabama - $158.13
  6. New York - $156.46
  7. Louisiana - $156.00
  8. California - $153.59
  9. New Hampshire $149.29
  10. Georgia - $146.28

Wow! These are car payments, but let's face it, you can't cuddle with an Oldsmobile!
