What’s your pet worth to you?

How much does a pet cost you during its typical life span?
According to this post:
— $5,980 for a small dog
— $6,565 for a medium dog
— $7,800 for a large dog
— $7,640 for a cat
— $6,960 for a rabbit
— $2,905 for a guinea pig

The most expensive pet to own? A cockatoo.

If you’ve ever seen the cockatoos at a pet store and thought about keeping these large and magnificent birds- don’t. Yes, they are beautiful, and yes, they are relatively smart. But, they will cost you $1,035 a year after spending $1,535 the first year. And these guys are no guinea pigs. Expect your cockatoo to live for 50 years, costing you a total of $52,250.

What kind of pets have people searched so far this year on Iwanna.com?
— 7,036 for dogs (228 for bull mastiff and 936 for yorkies)
— 761 for cats
— 399 for rabbits
— 133 for guinea pigs
— 14 for cockatoos

That means a lot of pet-friendly family budgets out there. But not a lot of expensive bird interest.
