I have an indoor cat, Schmi, who is pretty much my best friend. She snuggles with only me, follows only me, and runs to the door only when I get home. She doesn’t quite have that sort of bond with anyone else in the family. She’s spent all of her 7 years indoors, but once in a while, she sneaks outside of the house. It just happened the other night. She got out and disappeared down the driveway. And that’s when I knew, I really had to look into some sort of pet health insurance alternative.

There are a lot of strays in my neighborhood and I worry how she’d fair against such tough street cats. Every time she disappears, I worry that she’ll come back hurt. We live in the city, so traffic is another worry. I’m a nervous wreck until she wanders back home. I really need to be prepared for anything because we can’t possibly always keep an eye on her. I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have the money to take her to the vet. It’s time I look into cat insurance alternative, so I’m ready just in case.
