I am the proud momma of an all black DSH two year old cat. My husband, five year old twins(at the time) and myself adopted Toby from a local shelter. We showered him with toys, play time and lots of love from Day 1. We quickly realized though, that as much as we spent all our free time on being with him and learning to care for him, Toby liked to eat things he shouldn't. This past September, We woke up one morning and Toby had gotten sick through the night. Long to short, after several doctor visits and test, we learned that Toby had eaten a toy and was in need of surgery. Unfortunately, we had not begun our policy yet. After that experience, we knew that we had a little fireball on our hands and we needed peace of mind. Fortunately, Toby did very well and came through with flying colors. He recouped from his surgery and is doing very well. As diligent as we are, we have had two other scares where we were afraid he ate something. Fortunately, he hadn't but knowing that we had the insurance company to help us and support us was a relief. They took care of his medical bills and even called to make sure we were happy with our coverage and if they could have done more for us. Thank you ASPCA for allowing us to take such good care of our fur-baby!
