Cat Health Insurance - Do You Have It for Your Ragdoll Cat?
Originally posted July 12, 2012 - rerunning this post to get more responses.
Last month, Ingrid of The Conscious Cat posted about pet insurance. She had read an article recently on the CatChannel.com about Cat Insurance Options. In their article, the CatChannel.com put together an awesome chart to compare pet insurance options - they are initial quotes based on a 7-year-old domestic shorthair cat.
My cats' vet isn't crazy about cat health insurance - they claim that there just isn't a good one out yet. They suggest, rather than putting your money towards a premium every month, the better thing to do would be to take that money and establsih a separate savings account and put that amount into that savings account every month. That way if something goes wrong wit your kitty, you have, but if something doesn't, then you still have it.
I would love to learn more about cat health insurance - if it's worth it or not.
What do you do for your cat's long term health care savings? Do you have pet health insurance?
If you do...could you please comment on this post and tell us:
- What company is your insurance with?
- How long have you had it?
- Have you needed to use it? How did that go?
- Do you like the company you're with?
Would love to know any savings tips you have too!
Thanks for your tips, suggestions and help in advance.
