After spending the cost of a new car on the medical bills of my last cat, because of various conditions throughout the years and the last months before she died her bills were extremely expensive. We got her at the age of two and she lived to be seventeen. When I got her,the Vet suggested Health Insurance. I was sorry I didnt get it. Don't let this happen to you. As soon as I purchased my Persian kitten, that was the first thing I did. We have used the insurance to cover his neutering and a bacterial problem. We have Health Insurance on ourselves, so why not our furry children. ASPCA claims are easy to submit and reimbursement is quick.
