Depending on how many whiny pleas for videogames and sugary breakfast cereals you cave in to, it can cost up to $15,000 per year to raise a child in the United States. Responsible cats ponder this stuff too; what with the high price of catnip mice, designer litterboxes and hairball paste, many cats may prefer to remain kitten-free. Grant their wishes by bringing your male cat to the Humane Society and SPCA of Texas' Neuter Scooter for a Nickel. On February 22, tomcats can get the snip for just five cents at three metroplex locations. Cats must have proof of vaccination. Visit spca.org.
