After today's vet visit, there is no doubt in my mind that our boys need health insurance. Just having them looked at by the vet was $70 a cat and I hear that's not a high price. I've posted on the About.com Cats forum looking for advice on the two major brands of cat health insurance I've heard of: QuickCare and VPI.
Here are the details. Please chime in with your advice and experiences with any of these:
QuickCare's Indoor Only Cat Plan (my cats are indoor only)
VPI Superior Plan
VPI Standard Plan
IMHO but not in reality, this expense and any future expenses relating to their present infection should be paid for by the Bideawee shelter that sent them home with us without telling us about their respiractory problems (but that's a whole different rant). Anyway, even if they had told us, I still would have wanted them, because they're definitely "my cats," the ones I went to so many different places to find.
