I have two cats and since I first got them I have put £10 each into a bank account. They haven't needed to use it and now have over £1000!

Hi Crazy

I endorse what Sasha and Bella's Mummy said ;)

I used to have pet insurance for my 2 dogs and 2 cats. For years. Until I tried to make a claim and they wriggled out of it on a technicality. My vet was appalled.

Since then I save monthly for them all instead.

But if you do want to insure, I've heard good things about Petplan and Morethan. Don't touch Animal friends.

That should say £10 each month!!

£1000 is not a lot when it comes to vet's bills, it cost me about £1500 to get my cat diagnosed before deciding whether to go ahead with treatment (it's about £800 for an ultrasound) and she costs £900 a year to treat and that's assuming she doesn't get any other run of the mill problems as well...and that's with my vet cutting costs because she's not insured.

Petplan are supposed to be the best, my dog is with Purely pets and so far they've been good, they've paid out about £3000 this year (I have the best luck with pets, lol) with no problems.

I've got our cats insured with Petplan also.

To the posters who say they start a savings book when getting a kitten, please consider what you'd do when your 4 month old furbaby needs emergency surgery due to eating something they shouldn't, and you potentially only have £10 saved.

I would always choose the pet insurance, look for one that includes 'for life' treatment.

Personally, I'd start an insurance plan just for the peace of mind. I haven't got one for Seniorboy because he was too old when I got him - and by and large I've been pretty lucky. But that's what it was. Luck.

If I had a younger cat or cats, I'd sign up.
