A cat insurance policy can help you make quick, confident decisions about your furry family member’s medical care without stressing a vet bill.
In an ideal world, cat parents may not have to factor in cost when deciding on their pet’s care. But the truth is, the yearly cost of health-related expenses for cats can range from $374 – $965.1 That means you could spend nearly $15,000 just on your cat’s medical care over the course of 15 years — and some cats live into their 20s.
Or you could pay a premium starting at $9 a month2for a cat insurance policy that can reimburse you for these medical expenses, potentially helping you save money. As a result, you may be able to make decisions about your cat’s health without worrying about how you’ll afford it.
